You may study the course via an online/blended learning approach, using our highly detailed virtual learning environment and e-learning along with dedicated support from a personal tutor. You will also need to attend online webinars and highly interactive practical workshops to put your skills into practice and prepare for assessments.

Submit your coursework via email and then book in to take your practical and theory exams. You can take your assessments at one of our centres or alternatively you can record your practical exam and send this to us via video file.

Having passed my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training courses with Study Active I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a highly professional and  competent L2, L3 and L4 course provider. I can not recommend them enough. The level of support is second to none and the teaching is easy to understand and follow. The prompt response to any questions that you may have is also very much appreciated.

Thank you again Study Active.

The support email/phone line also great for helping in terms of solving any knowledge gaps. The webinars have been excellent to guide my studies.

I would definitely recommend Study Active to others looking to gain qualifications in the fitness industry.

Chris Brewer, Medical Doctor

I must say that they were absolutely amazing.

Great support, excellent comunication and very organised in everything.

If you see the price and what they give back to the student definitely you get value what you paid for and even more than that.

Ilija Konzulov, Personal Trainer

Study Active were brilliant from the time I enrolled on the course until I finished. James and the team were so good on the practical workshop and it was definitely down to them  that I was able to have the confidence to do the practical exam Justine my tutor was there for me every step of the way, giving me advice and supporting me through until the end . They are very professional and are really passionate about what they do.  I would definitely recommend Study Active to anyone who is looking at pursuing any fitness qualification. I will definitely go through them to do Level 3.

Caroline Yourston, Personal Trainer
