Our level 3 Personal trainer course is much more than a typical personal training course. Our course is designed to give you knowledge, skills, systems and confidence to help you succeed, whether as a Coach within a health club, a self employed coach or for the chosen few who excel you may wish to become a G2G Coach via our internship programme.
Our level 3 course will equip you with the knowledge to become confident to work with clients of a variety of backgrounds, injuries and be able to meet them where they are at to maximise their results. Our course is designed to allow you to study the theory element via our online Learner Management System. The practical days are all delivered in person at our facility in Edinburgh, where you will learn how to assess, perform, coach, programme and progress clients as well as many other skills you can transfer into your career.
The fitness industry is evolving all the time and being a personal trainer isn’t enough to stand our from the crowd. We want to help you become a coach and eventually help you find a niche within the industry to succeed, just like ours is working with people who have been injured or are injured. The important part is all of the skills and theory you learn are understood and can apply them to become the best coach you can be.
The course is broken down into units laws you will be assessed on each unit via worksheets. Worksheets will require you to research some content and find our information not given to you as this is what it is like in the industry when you don’t know something you need to research it. You will be given feedback on assessment and supported by a G2G tutor.
The theory work is all completed online using our Learner Management system. All practical learning is completed face-to-face and can be tailored to weekends, half days and weekdays depending on the number and availability of tutors, and students.
Decide whether you want to apply for the G2G internship? Or do you want to work in a health club or gym environment or start your own business. We are here to support you. Feel free to have a conversation about this with your tutor who will be happy to guide you or have a coffee with you.
