If you’ve been thinking about becoming a personal trainer but are worried about how to fit study around your day job, here’s how you can do just that.
Most of us aren’t in a position to quit our job – we all have bills to pay.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t pursue something you’re passionate about.
Studying to become a qualified Personal Trainer has evolved in recent years, and you can now complete a diploma online.
This flexible learning allows you to work around your schedule, in a time scale that suits you. Which is great news!
So if you’re serious about becoming a personal trainer, make sure you choose a reputable provider to complete your qualification with.
Choosing the right provider can make all the difference to your success.
Look for a training provider that has partnerships with gyms, as this will give you a foot in the door, and make sure they offer a recognised qualification, with tons of great reviews.
Premier Global NASM is the preferred partner of PureGym and as part of their level 3 course, they offer an experience day at a PureGym, where you can meet the boss.
In fact, Premier Global NASM is the UK’s top provider of Personal Trainer Diplomas and their level 3 diploma is their most popular course.
