We all have thought, that maintaining fitness is a strenuous task and being a trainer is an even harder one. Relax, we got your back. It could not have been a better time to be a trainer in the UK. PT Academy is a UK-based fitness training center with a “mentor” based system.
PT Academy was established in 2009. We build it on the idea of what we perceived \was the current need of the time. Being a fitness trainer is a difficult job, we know but trust us when we say that we make it easy and approachable for you. We have partnered with various major gym chains that include David Lloyd, The Gym Group, Bannantynes, Xercise 4 Less, Virgin Active, Nuffield Health. We are also partnered with the UK’s largest and oldest established Fitness Jobsite providing VIP access to over 25,000 active jobs in the UK. With the rapid spread of our ventures, we have the highest number of assessment centers and venues in comparison to any other training provider in the UK. This implies that we have literally thousands of sites where our graduates can find work. Also, we are not restricted to any one gym chain because of which our graduates have numerous options from which they can choose a gym or a location. Our motto is to raise the bars, increase the standards of the health and fitness industry by introducing and incorporating avant-garde learning techniques, competitive prices and high-quality graduates.
PT Academy provides you the comfort of completing your assessments from anywhere, with or without gym equipment. Also, there are no theory assessments, everything is practical. You are required to complete a work book. This could be done either via a hard copy or online or an app. You can learn to be a trainer by taking 3 simple steps-

We have courses and assessments planned that can adjust into your environment, including the non gym types. You can pick your learning method that can be either 100% online, face to face or a combination of both.

We offer a wide range of courses that can be moulded according to your ease. If you choose the Black label, Platinum or Flexi packages or any diploma where you are assigned a 1 to 1 mentor, both the preparation and assessment will be duly arranged for you. The training sessions will be arranged in a gym or a health club. On the assessment day you will be marked and given feedback. You also have the option to opt for the self- tapping way, which can either be in a gym or a studio. Here, your assessment has to be recorded and sent to the assessor who will mark and give you feedback. Remember to keep a copy of the recording for certification purposes.
If you are a home study learner on either the Gold or premier diplomas or any other home study package, you have discretionary practical development training and programme design days. For the assessment you will have to present at a PT Academy Training Center. Here again you have the self-tapping option, where you have to record your assessment and send it to the assessor who will mark you and pass feedback. Remember to keep a copy of the recording for certification purposes.
If you do choose the option to attend a practical assessment, the following qualifications are legible:
