Entry to any of our courses is only via personal interview*. We have high expectations and offer students a unique opportunity embedded within our courses, via our intern weeks. The interview allows us to accertain if we are a good fit for you and you for us.
*each course may have additional entry requirements coupled to the interview.
Why we are different to all other courses.
The Personal Training and Advanced Exercise Coach qualifications both have integrated practical internship component. This can total up to five weeks. For this training block, we apply the theory we've learnt into real-world training application on our busy gym floor.
Here our students will get a chance to:
Shadow highly-experienced coaches, delivering private and semi-private personal training sessions. (week 5).
Participate in our semi-private training systems (week 6).
Coach at least three semi-private training sessions, shadowed by experienced senior coaches (weeks 10, 11, 16)*.
During our practical weeks, all of our students are expected to plan and deliver strength and conditioning sessions to another student.**
We are the only course provider in the country where you will get this level of coaching practice, leading to a longer course duration but a more competent coach.
*We are very flexible regarding these times for each student and encourage over and above the minimum shadowing level.
** these should be completed at independent times.
