A former Royal Marine who was injured during service is now enjoying a successful career as a personal trainer after taking one of our courses.
Peter Greene, from Liverpool, was serving his tenth year in the Marines and had experienced two tours of Afghanistan when he suffered a serious knee injury that ended his career.
Left devastated and battling depression, the father-of-one decided to fight back and take a personal training course offered through our Help for Heroes programme.
Peter now works as a PT at Liverpool Personal Training Studios and is excited about what the future holds for him:
“I served almost 10 years in the Marines and was determined to complete the full 22 years, so I was devastated when I found out I was going to be medically discharged.
“I never anticipated that my time in the forces would be brought to an end so soon and didn't think I would be able to find another job that I loved so much. I came close to sinking into depression."
“Luckily, it was then that I was referred to The Training Room course. Personal training is something that I have always been interested in and having the opportunity to complete the course for free really gave me the push I needed. I’m now working under the guidance of an excellent mentor and am looking to open my own personal training business in the future.”
Excellent customer service and very good service from the people on the phone.
Kirsty is a lovely lady and really happy with how helpful everyone else was. Can't wait to start my course in April.

Very friendly and helpful staff who explained everything and answered all my questions which were slightly outside the usual criteria as I live and work in France. I'm looking forward to starting the training and hope that it will be as well organised as the process up until now.

I found my experience friendly and helpful and easy to understand
Everyone who contacted me or I was in contact with was very friendly, helpful and informative. Very professional yet easy going.
Excellent service and help provided throughout, thanks a lot! Andy McGlashan (tutor) replied 99% of the time within a couple of hours to any questions and when providing feedback to me, top guy couldn't ask for more
The course was really helpful and it gave me the skills I need to become a Personal Trainer, I have now started work at Pure Gym in Warrington.
All of the admin staff were incredibly helpful and instrumental in my attendance and attainment of the course, and my tutor Tracey Lilburn at the Newcastle school was overwhelming supportive and absolutely the reason for my success.
I get very quickly answers to my questions.
