Is the qualification recognised globally?

Yes, it is. The course is not only approved by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs), it is also recognised by ICREPS (The International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals) – the overarching international institution. Gaining this qualification will therefore enable you to work as a fitness instructor in any country with an ICREPS-affiliation.

Will this qualification allow me to become a personal trainer?

Yes and no. In order to become a personal trainer, you will first need to gain a Level 2 Gym Instruction certification. Once you have obtained this, you can train for your Level 3 Personal Training certification. After you have earned this qualification, you will then be able to start your career as a personal trainer.

How much could I eventually earn as a personal trainer?

Once you are Level 3 qualified, the average salary for a personal trainer largely depends on where you live in the UK, ranging between £25,000 and £60,000. In comparison to fitness instructors with a Level 2 qualification, the average starting salary is approximately £19,000.

Working as a personal trainer also gives you the freedom to charge hourly rates rather than earn a salary. These typically range from approximately £25 per hour for starters up to £100 an hour for more experienced personal trainers.

What are the modules/units covered?
  1. Principles of health and well-being for exercise, fitness and health
  2. Anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology for exercise and health
