Becoming a qualified personal trainer

Becoming a qualified personal trainer can be a rewarding career choice for those passionate about health and fitness. Not only do personal trainers help others achieve their fitness goals, but they also have the opportunity to create their schedules and be their own boss. However, this rewarding profession requires education, certification, and dedication.


The first step is to become qualified. Several organisations offer personal trainer certification programs, including Storm Fitness Academy. These organisations provide different certifications, so it is essential to research and choose the one that best fits your career goals and interests. At Storm Fitness Academy, you can contact one of our tutors directly via Whatsapp or our website for free career advice. Storm Fitness Academy offers online courses with the option to add on face-to-face workshops and assessment days if required. 

Working as a personal trainer

After certification, you will be qualified. You can start working as a personal trainer at a gym, health club, or fitness facility. Many personal trainers also choose to work independently by creating their own personal training business or freelancing.

To succeed in this industry, you must be dedicated to your clients and your profession. This means staying current with the latest fitness trends and techniques and continuing your education to improve your skills and knowledge. At Storm Fitness Academy, we have several options, including level 4 qualifications and CPD workshops.
