Delivered at the Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre and Nuffield Health Bristol, 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) and full-time fitness courses in Central and North Bristol, 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 Personal Trainer, Gym and Yoga Instructor 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 Bristol courses are run over weekends or weekdays to best suit your availability - we also run courses in Birmingham and London if you are looking at alternative dates and courses.
