What qualification do I need to become a personal trainer?

If you want to start a career in the health and fitness industry, enjoy training and being in a gym environment then the role of a personal trainer would be great for you.  To become a qualified Personal Trainer is a relatively simple process which requires hard work and commitment. You will need to complete two qualifications and register yourself with REPs as a new trainer.

Personal Trainer Qualifications with Entire Training

Level 2 Gym Instructor Qualification

The first qualification is the Level 2 Gym Instructor course, which will give you the fundamental skills and knowledge to begin a career in the fitness industry. The course will build the foundation of knowledge of the human body and it responses to exercise. The qualification will help gain practical skills such as exercise instructing, correcting technique, adapting exercises, effectively communicating with clients, designing basic programmes and understanding the elements of programme design.

Level 3 Personal Training Qualification

After completion of the Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification you will progress onto the Level 3 Personal Training Qualification. The Level 3 is the minimum qualification requirement to become a qualified Personal Trainer in the UK and abroad. The course will utilise the skills and knowledge gained through the Level 2 course and expand this to progress the understanding further.

Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing a Personal Training

At Entire Training, the diploma is our best qualification available to anyone looking to transform from gym goer to a knowledgeable and successful personal trainer. The course combines the Level 2 gym instructor and Level 3 personal trainer certificates into one diploma qualification. This can be completed in 10-12 weeks.

Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) Accredited Personal Trainers

Once qualified as a personal trainer we recommend all our students join a professional organisation that will improve your reputation as a new trainer. As a member of REPs you will have access to your own personal online space on their website in which you can advertise your services and be searchable in your local area. Becoming a REPs accredited trainer is the most appropriate 1st step for any newly qualified personal trainers within the industry. It demonstrates to your potential clients that you hold recognised qualifications within the industry and you are committed to furthering your own knowledge through continuous professional development.
