A new standard of Personal Trainer qualification

Most Personal Trainer education providers sell you a dream of an easy life. They promise quick qualification, guaranteed interviews, and a straightforward route to success. In reality, Personal Training isn’t a trade you can learn in six weeks. Coaching real humans through the ups and downs of changing their lifestyle requires confidence, in-depth exercise and nutrition knowledge, and empathy. Running your own business means early starts, keeping your finances in check, and adding marketing and sales to your skillset. You’ve got to do it all.

A demanding career requires a comprehensive qualification, and that’s where the PTC comes in. We’ve spent years developing a course curriculum that combines the most up-to-date exercise and nutrition science, modern methods that you can apply directly to your clients, and the foundations of building a sustainable, successful business.

At the PTC, we understand what the foundations of a successful career as a Personal Trainer are made of. We want to equip every Personal Trainer that studies under us with the tools to tackle the challenges that lie ahead. We believe in Personal Trainers – and together, we can make a difference.
