CIMSPA & REPs Level 3 Personal Training Course

“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."

Calvin Zola, Professional Footballer

CIMSPA & REPs Level 3 Fitness Instruction & Personal Training Diploma

“I had a wonderful experience getting my level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer qualifications with Study Active. The online support and tutors were so helpful and professional, making it all very clear and they were always quick at responding. I did a lot of research before choosing Study Active and I’m so glad I chose them. If you have any interest in getting qualified as a Personal Trainer, Study Active are the ones to talk to!”

Giles Matthey, Movie Actor.

Fitness Qualification

“As a Great Britain International Athlete, I can now go forward with the knowledge and confidence as a Personal Trainer and use the skills which I have learnt from this course to build my own Personal Training business. The support that I have been given throughout has been superb and has been a big part of helping me through every step of the course. I found the workshops both interesting and motivational, and these helped me further my own one to one fitness coaching skills. The online learning material covered everything needed to prepare for the theory test and gave me a clear understanding of all aspects of becoming a Personal Trainer. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to pursue their career in the health & fitness sector.”

Greg Beard, Great British Athlete
