I thought the whole experience and information provided was very in-depth and delivered in a friendly and professional way.
The Training Room has excellent service, I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and already have met (on the phone) a bunch of lovely people who have provided me with support even before I signed up. My Career Support Advisor, Grace White, is amazing. It's easy to get in contact with her via email or phone call. She has offered to review my CV and see if any changes need to be made or added. She has already given my details to gyms to consider hiring me which is beyond exciting.
Anyone looking to go into the fitness industry, I would highly recommend The Training Room as the help and guidance is always available. Which doesn't stop for 3 years (even if you pass the course within a few month or year).
