The Premier Global name, now backed by Study Active’s leading fitness education products paves the way for a new era in the sector.

This exciting news means that Study Active will effectively be custodian of the Premier Global brand name – a responsibility that will be taken extremely seriously.

Study Active Managing Director James Luscombe has the following to say “We are thrilled at this acquisition and feel privileged to be entrusted in this way to essentially carry forward such an important legacy. Whilst our current and future learners will see some exciting brand alignment between both the Study Active and Premier Global brands, this acquisition means so much more to us than aesthetics. More so we intend to embed the values and commitment to quality and educational impact that has long been associated with the Premier Global name thus ensuring a new era of quality within the fitness education sector. This affirms our commitment to driving up standards in the industry and by taking on this privilege it certainly sets the bar high for us as we aspire to deliver cutting edge fitness education to our learners.”
