Sports has always been a huge part of Christopher’s life. As an active gym goer, he already had some first-hand knowledge of personal training and the importance of health and fitness, so when the opportunity came up to do a course and become a qualified personal trainer himself, Chris jumped at the chance!
Chris said: “I wasn’t in full-time work, I was just doing odd jobs here and there but hadn’t found anything I was passionate about or any work that I enjoyed, so when I came across the course I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to get started on a new career that I actually had an interest in.”
Chris decided to use his time wisely and opted to study using our fast-track personal trainer course. Speaking about his experience on the course, Chris said: “To be honest, I loved everything about it! From start to finish it was fantastic, my tutor was great and made sure we all had the important information. My favourite part of the course however was the anatomy and nutrition units as I loved the science behind it, I found it very interesting!” He continues “fitting the course around my personal life was really easy too as we were only needed in the classroom for 2 days a week over the 5-weeks of the course, and the online learning platform is really easy to use, so you can do a lot of your learning in your own time at home. I was initially a little anxious about having to learn so much in such a short period of time, but with the tutors and the online learning platform it turns out there was nothing to worry about!”
After graduating the course, Chris made full use of the career support all of our students receive and updated his CV with their help, which ended up getting him a job straight away in his new industry! We checked in with him to see how he’s been getting on. Chris said: “I’m working at Oakley Fitness, I am primarily a receptionist as I want to gain some experience and build my brand before I become a personal trainer, but I also run classes, do gym inductions and help out elsewhere in the gym. I have a few CPD courses lined up with The Training Room to allow me to run more classes. It’s a great atmosphere at the gym I love working there! It’s like a little family!”
We wish Chris the best of luck in his new career in health and fitness, and we’re glad he finally found work in an industry he is really passionate about.
If you feel the same as Chris and want to make the leap into a new adventure, let us help you!
Very informative and understanding

Very happy with customer service. All my questions were answered.
I have spoken with few people and all of them have been very nice and helpful.
Very good explanation and helpful tests
The online course is easy to access and enjoy all the detailed and video presentation and very good teachers. Love it!
I had very good communication with my first point of contact. It was clear and encouraging and all the follow up happened as had been described to me. Tes i would recommend The Training Room.
Everyone that I've been in contact with about getting started with my online course has been supportive and patient. I've been given accurate and enlightening overviews of my course and I'm excited to see where it leads me.

Was very prompt in getting me set up and everything sorted, made sure I was aware of everything, however i decided to cancel due to it being not the right time for me financially.
the customer service was great
I would recommend this course. They call you back or phone promptly if you have a problem. The course is full of information for the student to learn.
Online teaching courses initiated by this platform is remarkable. Anybody who has fewer resources can take a loan for completing this online course.
So far they have been brilliant supporters very efficient in answering the emails.
Holly was very helpful. She fully explained the course and all of the support that was provided during and after the course had finished. Very impressed with my experience, thank you.
Just started course but very helpful and always return calls emails
My experience so far with the cyber security Technologist e-learning is brilliant because I can do it when I'm free through the day (as I work nights) but also whenever I've got the time.
The course layout is simple and easy to follow, the information provided in your learning section is simple and easily broke down to be able to understand the information your taking in.
I've had emails from my tutor and careers support office explaining how their there to help me through every step of the way.
They also give you live prodiction on when you should finish your on course (depending on how long you put in daily) From my personal experience so far I haven't found any faults or wrongs with training platform or from the help of tutors/ career officers so.... This is why I have gave it a 5 start rating.
I am happy with the service provided thus far. All advisors have communicated well the course aims and I have a career support officer! I am looking forward to my course.
