Is sport your life? Do you spend hours every week in the gym? Do you wish you could have a hand in improving other people's fitness? If becoming a personal trainer sounds like the ideal job for you have a look at our three tips to set you on the road for your perfect career.
Changing career is difficult. Especially changing to a field that may not necessarily be connected to your current career path. You have to have dedication and you have to know that this is what you really want. Think of the drive you'll expect from your clients once you become a trainer. Think of the way you'll expect them to push themselves to the limit. If you go into your new career with that same kind of drive and determination you'll be bound to succeed. If you're only thinking about doing it as you enjoy the gym and aren't really sure what you want to do think again. You'll only prosper if you have the true motivation to attain your goals.
This is the most important step. In order to work as a personal trainer you'll need to become qualified through different personal training courses. To qualify you must first complete a Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification. When looking at this it's always important to ensure the course is accredited by an awarding body such as CYQ and Active IQ. After that you'll need to move onto your Level 3 Personal Trainer Course. This is the level you must be at before you can be a practising Personal Trainer. You can become a personal trainer through either a taught programme or a work based programme. Taught based programmes tend to be the most common as they are shorter and easier to access. A work based programme focuses on individuals who either have a job or work experience in the personal trainer sector and focus on specific tasks and roles in the workplace. Why not check out our personal trainer qualifications?
Once you've qualified you'll be able to start searching for a job. As with any career there are specialist personal trainer and leisure job sites where you can search for your perfect job. While certain job sectors may be struggling in the current economic climate there are still countless gyms operating in every city in the UK meaning there is huge scope to secure your ideal personal trainer role.
Really helpful and professional
After looking at reviews online about the training room and seeing that it was a legitimate service I gave them a call, the people I have been speaking to at HQ have been so lovely and helpful, as well as professional and I know are always willing to help me and have made signing up to the course an enjoyable experience and i am very much looking forward to starting the course and a career as a beauty therapist 😃.... Thanks everyone at the training room x

Staff are very friendly and I was passed to the person that I spoke to the first time I had to speak to the Training room which is quite rare. I was happy about this as I felt very comfortable talking on the phone and I felt like I was speaking to someone I knew. Everything was explained to me literally, no stone was left unturned. Lastly, everything has been super fast!
I'm terrible with names and can't remember the name of the man who was helping me through whole process. But he was very enthusiastic and helpful.
Very helpful, descriptive and direct. Would highly recommend thus far
Sammy was very helpful. She answered all
My questions and checked in several times
Great help from Molly from the training room !
Ever so helpful and a pleasure to speak too.
I have only just signed up but everyone i have spoken too has been amazing and really welcoming, they were fast to reply to emails and always made sure there was a way to keep me updated as it is hard to get me on the phone due to work.

Their service is simply excellent and the people, the tutors are very friendly and helpful. They made sure I got everything I needed in a short space of time, they worked with speed and excellence. God bless them !!
Steve was the 1st point of contact I had, and he was very professional told me everything i needed to know and I didn't feel pressuered into signing up. He gave me the time to go away and think about whether the course was right for me and to compare with over companies, which I did and soon realised after a couple of phone calls that the training room were the right company to go with! Steve was then brilliant with helping me sign up. So far very impressed with the customer service and looking forward to learning with the training room.
they explained everything very well on the phone
