Delivered at the University of Brighton, our Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer courses are accredited by YMCA Awards, CIMSPA and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS). 

We run part-time (weekend) and full-time fitness courses within the Sports Centre within the University of Brighton’s Falmer campus, 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 and Personal Trainer courses are available to pay with interest free payment plans. We also offer Advanced Learner Loans on our personal training courses which allow you to repay the cost of the course only when you are earning over £21K a year.

YMCAfit's Brighton courses are run over weekends or weekdays to best suit your availability - we also run courses in London if you are looking at alternative dates and courses.
