Take your passion to the next level with a career in fitness. With a range of courses, workshops and qualifications, we’ll give you all the tools you need to get started.
There are many different routes into a fitness career. Whether you want to go straight in as a personal trainer or gym instructor or specialise as a Yoga teacher, Pilates instructor or Sports Massage Therapist, we've got all the information you need to to help you decide.
There are two routes into personal training, our Diploma in Personal training or our Advanced Diploma in Personal Training. The diploma course is an ideal start, focusing on developing your gym-based skills. For something a little broader, the advanced diploma will develop your abilities to train individuals and groups and get you ready to start your own business.
Our fitness instructor courses teach you the basic principles you'll need in the industry. You’ll learn about tailoring programmes to suit individual needs and the most up-to-date and effective training methods. You can choose the Fitness Instructor Course, giving you a broad overview or specialise. After one of our courses you can go straight to work in a health and fitness club or continue your development with a personal training course.
Our Diploma in Teaching Yoga course is based on Hatha Yoga – the foundation from where many popular styles of yoga have developed. You’ll learn yoga asanas (positions), pranayama (breath control), mudra (hand positions), as well as meditation and yoga kriyas (cleansing techniques). So whether you want to teach classes or one-to-one sessions, this is the course for you.

Our courses and workshops are ideal for anyone looking to improve and expand on their range of skills and incorporate modern exercise science and rehabilitation principles for a safe and highly effective low-impact way to strengthen the body.
The Diploma in Sports Massage gives you all the skills and knowledge you'll need for a longstanding career. With practical workshops and treatments from peers leading to an internationally-recognised qualification. This is the perfect place to start your career in fitness.
