I have had an interest in fitness from a young age and it's fair to say that it has always been a big part of my life. It was some time ago now but my career in the fitness industry started when I studied sports and exercise science and gained all the necessary fitness related qualifications that I needed at the time. I then looked for a way to work in the fitness industry and, as I had a keen interest in sports nutrition, ended up working in sales for a sports nutrition company and then moved on to sell health and fitness equipment. I built up my own company selling fitness equipment and then, off the back of its success, opened up a studio focusing on the use of power plates and kettlebell training. This allowed me to gain a wealth of experience working as a personal trainer, especially with regard to group training, which is something we specialise in at the studio.
Now, it might seem strange that I would choose to study with The Training Room with all that experience under my belt. However, my qualifications are quite old now and I thought it was time to bring myself, and my qualifications, into the 21st century. I think it is always worth refreshing your knowledge, regardless of how much experience you already have. The Training Room gave me the opportunity to gain an updated version of the qualifications I already had and, therefore, move forward with my business plan and training methods.
I loved the course with The Training Room and met some great people. Actually I'm still in touch with all of the people from the course and it was great to be surrounded by like minded individuals. The course gave me the opportunity to refresh my qualifications although, without wanting to sound arrogant, I did find the course fairly easy. That said, it was great to learn about the body again and how it works. I think that when you spend a lot of time in the industry you can lose the facts as most of your time is spent focused on exercises and teaching.
The time on the course has now taken me to another level. I feel more confident and know that I have everything that I need to move forward in my career and make a real difference. My real aim is that I want to teach and I have now enrolled on a course to enable me to do so. So in the near future I will be a master trainer and am in talks with rugby league clubs in the hope to do strength and conditioning coaching for them.
I plan to keep the studio running as it is the bread and butter of my business but hope to develop it into an athletic conditioning centre. The bad state of our nation's health is something that never fails to amaze me and I'm determined to do everything in my power to help make positive changes.

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.
