Sam never let his dreams of having an exciting career in the fitness industry wander too far from his mind. After working as an engineer for 16 years, his life took an unexpected turn due to a serious health issue and he was unexpectedly laid off. Not one to let bad news get him down, Sam saw the opportunity to finally go for what he had always wanted, a way to convert his long-time passion for health and fitness into a rewarding career. It was time to hit the books and re-train!
After doing some research into training providers, Sam contacted us at The Training room. He says “Everyone I dealt with at The Training Room was extremely professional from the outset. They made me feel valued from the start and that has continued throughout my experience with them. The 3-year career support was also a key aspect for me while starting my career in a new industry. It’s always nice to have some assistance whilst taking the first steps”.
Sam decided to make the most of the time he had available as a result of being laid off and chose to take the fast-track course. This allowed him to really focus on his future while getting qualified for his new career and earning a living much quicker than going to college or university. He has a young family to care for and it was important to him to fit his study time around his family life. Our fast-track course allowed him to do just that.
Here’s what Sam had to say about his fast-track personal training course: “I really enjoyed that it was in a gym setting, I didn’t really know what to expect going into it and I was worried it would all be in a classroom and be really stale and boring. But it was in a professional facility and had some great practical elements that I really enjoyed. The knowledge you gain is fantastic and it’s not just about lifting weights, it really was an eye opener on what it takes to work in the fitness industry”.
Sam passed his personal training course with flying colours and was able to start work as a qualified PT right away. He began instructing classes and even worked with a GP referral scheme to help people regain their fitness and mobility after an injury or illness. Although very happy in this position, Sam has big dreams for this exciting new career and plans to return to The Training Room to study our popular Level 4 course in strength and conditioning.
Sam says “As The Training Room’s Level 3 course was so interesting the Level 4 strength and conditioning programme must be on another level! I am also doing some CPD’s with The Training Room, these are in Gym Based Boxing, Studio Cycling and Metabolic Circuits. I’ve even thought about life after my Level 4 qualification and quite like the idea of going into Sports Psychology”.
We asked Sam what advice he would give to anyone about to start a personal training course with us at The Training Room, he said: “Always ask questions, no matter how silly you think the questions are. Asking questions will help you become a better PT and access the knowledge of the tutors, they know so much and are always willing to help!”.
We wish Sam the best of luck for his bright future ahead.
Really friendly, reassuring and helping

A small issue with stored details was resolved quickly and effectively by both the tutor and customer services via phone and email.
Everyone was very helpful and it was all easy to understand with no confusing words or phrases. I would definitely recommend The Training Room.
I’ve just literally started my journey as a PT and so far so good, Scott the gentlemen who was setting me up in the beginning did an amazing job! And just want to say to the team thanks for having such great services like the course I chose for people wanting more out of life and a change of career made easier.
I didn't feel pressure to sign up there and then, very helpful and informative
very helpful staff that are kind and patient enough to help you through whatever concerns you might be having.
My sales rep was incredibly helpful and polite, and they answered any questions I had very clearly. Additionally, the cost of the course seemed fair for the amount of content provided
So far very happy
I gave 5 stars as there is the right amount of contact without being pressured. The actual course is well set out and interesting in the different ways used to deliver the information.
Everything was very clear and well explained every time I spoke to anyone. They knew exactly what they were speaking about making the experience much more enjoyable and much simpler than the other companies I was considering using for my Personal Training course.
Very helpful and thorough
I would definitely reccomend
Everyone I have spoken to has been very helpful and have managed to answer all my questions and I find the learning platform really easy to use
Chris, was fantastic from start to finish. No hard sell just informative, helpful and very knowledgeable. The process was quick and easy. Cannot wait to start the course
I have just gone through the process of enrolling on a level 3 PT, with a level 4 nutrition course to follow. Having previous fitness qualifications and training experiences, I have been bowled over by the knowledge, support and professionalism that the training room have provided through my enquiry. Carl has been fantastic and Charlotte just as much in getting me setup. I can’t wait to get started!! You have made this such an easy decision in choosing the Training Room to be my PT training provider. Thank you
They are very thorough and helpful, positive and very nice people over the phone also, helped with any questions i had and lastly never rushed through calls letting me feel like i don’t need to rush into something i don’t know about as they never moved forward with the conversation without making sure i was happy first
I would recommend them. They are very supportive and very professional. Very excited to start my course, as I know I'm in good hands..
Course is easy to follow and interesting so far
Everything from the customer service and the amount of information you get told about the course was excellent. Highly recommend, very good resources available and easy to follow.
