I am a member of the Great Britain Bobskeleton Team aiming to compete at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. I have been sliding for 6 years now and am one of the fastest push starters in the world.
I was formerly a 100m and 60m sprinter and University of Bath Sports Science Graduate; I represented Great Britain briefly in the 100 metres and in 2006 decided to turn my abilities to a new and demanding challenge. Driving a sled down an ice track, head first, centimetres off the ice, with forces up to 5G’s and speeds in excess of 80mph, the sport of Bobskeleton! Since then I have become a World Juniors Silver medallist, a British Championships Gold medallist and finished the 2011/2012 season ranked 23rd in the World. The 2012/13 season will see me make my World Cup debut.
This change of sport meant that I now train full time (6 days a week) at Bath and had the problem of trying to find suitable work and education courses to set myself up for life after being a full time athlete. This is why I became a Personal Trainer through The Training Room. Personal Training has always been something I have felt pulled towards and with exercise and training being such an integral part of my life it seemed like the ideal step forwards. The distance learning course offered by The Training Room was perfect; it provided me with the flexibility I needed to finish the course around my training as well as teaching me to apply my own skills to training others. The standard of the teaching was brilliant and provided useful knowledge and skills onto the degree I already have, most of all I had a great time doing it with a lovely group of people.
The course has really whetted my appetite to get stuck into the Personal Training world although for now pursuing my dream of Olympic Glory takes priority. It has however opened my eyes to perfecting my own training techniques and has aided me massively going forwards. Long term I would love to take my skills back into my sport post retirement and potentially train the next generation of athletes. Alternatively opening my own gym and inspiring high quality personal training to the public and elite sports people alike would be a personal dream, a dream that The Training Room has set me up perfectly to go and achieve
I would definitely reccomend
Everyone I have spoken to has been very helpful and have managed to answer all my questions and I find the learning platform really easy to use
Chris, was fantastic from start to finish. No hard sell just informative, helpful and very knowledgeable. The process was quick and easy. Cannot wait to start the course
I have just gone through the process of enrolling on a level 3 PT, with a level 4 nutrition course to follow. Having previous fitness qualifications and training experiences, I have been bowled over by the knowledge, support and professionalism that the training room have provided through my enquiry. Carl has been fantastic and Charlotte just as much in getting me setup. I can’t wait to get started!! You have made this such an easy decision in choosing the Training Room to be my PT training provider. Thank you
They are very thorough and helpful, positive and very nice people over the phone also, helped with any questions i had and lastly never rushed through calls letting me feel like i don’t need to rush into something i don’t know about as they never moved forward with the conversation without making sure i was happy first
I would recommend them. They are very supportive and very professional. Very excited to start my course, as I know I'm in good hands..
Course is easy to follow and interesting so far
Everything from the customer service and the amount of information you get told about the course was excellent. Highly recommend, very good resources available and easy to follow.

Leon David William Wilson
so far the information has been very informative and the help has been very good
Everybody was really helpful and informative, giving me a good step-by-step guide as to the processes I would be going through as I progress along the course.
Professional, friendly and very personalized experience. These guys are not just about taking your money off you. Early introduction to personal course tutor already tested with excellent response time. The course itself is really good -modular and very industry specific with constant reference to real life application. You literally need to know nothing to successfully complete this course yet its not overly simplistic so it doesn't bore the more knowledgeable student -highly recommendable.
It's not cheap neither is it overly expensive. I have 3 months holiday before i start payment. Combined with early certification on modules means i could be earning by the time i start paying and its in installment spread over the better part of 3 years -lovely! Ultimately in life you get what you pay for -this has already being money very well invested so again excellent value for money. Very impressed -well done guys.
Very helpful and profesional staff
I’m very happy with the Support offered.
