Delivered at the Manchester YMCA and the Village Hotel Cheadle, our Level 2 Gym Instructor, Level 3 Personal Trainer and Level 3 Diploma in Yoga courses are accredited by YMCA Awards, CIMSPA and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS).

We run part-time (weekend) fitness courses in Central and South Manchester (Cheadle), all taught and supported by fitness training experts with industry experience.

Whatever your goal in becoming a qualified fitness instructor, whether you are starting out, expanding your portfolio and skills, or looking to change your career we pride ourselves in being able to talk through the options, routes and courses to provide the best course advice in terms of what you want to achieve.

Our Gym Instructor, Personal Trainer, Yoga, Sports Massage and Exercise to Music courses are available to pay with interest free payment plans.
