If you're the kind of person who runs 10K before breakfast, enjoys eating healthily and is always on the lookout for the latest news on training and fitness, then a job in the health and fitness industry could be just right for you. It's a sector that has grown exponentially over the last decade, and even when times are tough, it seems gym membership is not the first luxury that people forego when they're tightening their belts.
The first thing to do is to check out the various fitness instructor courses on offer. There are a lot of them around and they're not all accredited by the industry's governing bodies, so make sure the one you're thinking of doing will actually give you the accreditation you need. Look out for courses that are approved by CYQ or Active IQ and make sure they feature on the Register of Exercise Professional's (REP) website. If you're still not sure about some of the courses you come across and whether or not they're right for you, then it might be a good idea to give your local gym a call and ask them what kind of qualifications they look for and if they have any preference. The gym manager will be able to tell you which ones always leap out when he's looking through CVs and this will help you make your final decision.
The next thing to do is decide whether you want to look at full time or part time fitness instructor courses. If you're already working and think that you might like a career change, then a part time course would probably be the best option for you. That way you can stay working at your current job and see how you get on with the course before you make the decision to change careers totally. It will take you a bit longer to qualify, but it's probably the more sensible option.
If you've just finished school or college and you're pretty sure that a career in fitness is the way to go, then check out the full time courses on offer. It would also be worth considering any areas of specialisation that might interest you, like strength training or diet and nutrition. The more strings you have to your fitness bow, the more employable you become and the better chance you have of bagging that job in a top gym.

Very friendly staff
Super welcoming and lovely
I applied to the advert and within 12 hours I had received a positive response from Alison. She explained what there was to be offered clearly and outlined everything I needed to know. Ella helped me on the loan information and both team members made me feel confident in the products and services that were being offered to me.
Had a very relaxing chat, was able to answer to all of my questions and more!
Donna was very nice and friendly. She explained everything clearly and answered all my questions precisely.
Erin was very helpful and patient with me and let me know all info i needed. I found her to be very positive and motivating on something i was unsure on doing.
Absolutely brilliant. The lady I spoke to, Clare, listened to everything I had to say and ask, and answered everything she could. All of the staff I have spoken to have been happy bubbly and seem genuinely happy to speak to and assist you anyway they can. Plus they never tried to force feed you their course which was refreshing.
My advisor, Steve, was intensely helpful throughout the process of signing up to the course. He would contact me regularly with new information, but was also extremely polite and never put any pressure on me.
Really friendly and informative
I booked over the phone with Steve who gave me all the time in the world to talk about my worries before starting the course. When I got there I found the trainer Nick was so friendly and helpful, no question to small to answer. The other tutors who came on assessment days were also wonderfully knowledgable and everyone made you feel like you could do it. Since then the after care teams have made sure I have the certificates I need, when I needed them for my insurances etc and I’m really pleased with my new career. I did the intense PT course in September and loved that it was full on.
When I applied I was connected the next day. I was taken through the course being told the sets that I will be taking with all the information that I need to know what the course involves and got the answers to questions that I wanted .
Very patient and excellent
Sarah was really helpful, friendly and efficient. I got all the info i needed and she did everything she could to help me through all the admin etc. I found the service provided very useful and would happy to use it again.
