Delivered at Bannatynes Birmingham (Brindley Place) and the Village Hotel Walsall, 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 North Birmingham (Walsall), 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 and Yoga courses are available to pay with interest free payment plans. We also offer a government financed Advanced Learner Loan on our personal training and yoga instructor courses which allow you to repay the cost of the course, only when you are earning over £21K a year.

YMCAfit Birmingham courses are run over weekends or weekdays to best suit your availability - we also run courses in Leicester and Nottingham if you are looking for alternative dates and courses.
