The only definitive list of personal training courses and providers in London & the UK
Table of contents
To become a personal trainer you need an appropriate qualification. But with so many organisations offering different personal trainer certifications, how can you decide which one is best for you? How do you even know what PT courses are out there? It would take days of searching and compiling information, and who has time for that?
Fortunately for you, we made the effort so you don’t have to. For everyone who wants to train to be a personal trainer, we’ve put together this complete guide to the providers and what qualifications they’re offering.
What personal trainer qualifications do I need?
We’ve written about this in more detail elsewhere, but basically the education requirements are that you need a recognised Level 3 qualification in Personal Training.
The different companies all call their qualifications different names like “Certificate in Personal Training” or “Master Personal Training Diploma”. The important thing is whether it is Level 2 or Level 3.
In order to study a Level 3 qualification, you’ll need to already have an appropriate Level 2 qualification. This is usually a Level 2 Fitness Instructor Certificate, although it might be called Level 2 Gym-Based Fitness or something similar.
It’s important to know that some Level 3 courses include a prerequisite Level 2 course within them, and some don’t. As opposed to Certificates, for example, Diplomas tend to roll up required courses into one. You might already have a Level 2 certification as a fitness trainer, or maybe not. So we’ve included information on both Level 2 and 3 courses. In the table, the cost for Level 2-plus-Level 3 is the cost for taking a combined course, where available, or the cost for taking both courses separately, if not. If there are different locations for Level 2 and Level 3 courses, only the Level 3 locations are shown. Where there are multiple options for Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification, the information given relates to the simplest/cheapest one.
And then once you’ve qualified, and have started your personal training career, you’ll want to improve your salary potential as best you can by taking CPD (Continued Professional Development) courses. These are specialised units of education for personal trainers that build on your existing knowledge and skills by going deep in one area, such as for example Exercise for Diabetes and Obesity Management. These courses are called out as Level 4 or CPD.
Which courses are good quality?
The exact names of the courses differ, but the important thing is it must be certified. Having many different certifying bodies, and several organisations that look like industry standards bodies or official registers but are really just private companies, can make it quite confusing to know which courses are “approved”, “official”, or “recognised”.
CIMSPA (the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity) is the body chartered by the government to regulate the industry. Some providers are registered directly with CIMSPA, meaning that they have been inspected for quality by CIMSPA themselves.
Other organisations are indirectly registered with CIMSPA by having their qualifications approved by one of the approving bodies recognised by CIMSPA. Of those, here the ones that deal with PT qualifications:
- 1st4sport Qualifications
- Focus Awards
- Innovate Awarding
- YMCA Awards
If a provider is registered directly with CIMSPA, that’s the best guarantee of quality. If they’re approved by one of the above bodies, that should also ensure that they keep a good standard. But if you find a qualification that is not endorsed by these bodies – do not take it. It’s probably not very good.
We only list providers who are directly or indirectly endorsed by CIMSPA. Your choice can then be based on other factors such as location, price, and topic, which we include here.
This article is (as far as we know) the only way to compare all quality personal training courses in the UK by their attributes.
Cheap and free personal training courses
Many courses at universities are completely free for young people. The terms and conditions vary, but being under 19 years of age is often enough to get a participating qualification for nothing. Young people who don’t qualify for a free course can still often get them pretty cheap. For those who don’t qualify for a free course, the best option may be 0% finance from a private training company. The course is free at the point you take the training, and you repay the cost in monthly instalments.
About the providers of personal training qualifications
Both private companies and universities put on fitness instructor and personal trainer courses. But the qualifications are often quite different. Higher education institutions often run longer courses, up to a year or more, which can lead to or form part of degrees, as well as shorter qualifications.
Personal training courses at universities are more likely to be in-person only, with little or no online component, making them best for young people who can dedicate themselves wholly to study. Companies offering personal trainer certifications almost always have a blended offer, meaning that the course is partly online/distance learning and partly in-person, or a fully online course with in-person exams, meaning they’re likely to be the best choice for those who are transitioning between careers.
Private schools often have very flexible options, such as the same course part time or full time, or taking a flexible length of time to complete, as opposed to a fixed duration of course length at a higher education provider. HE providers have just a handful of courses for personal trainers, but some training companies have really large numbers of Level 2, Level 3, or CPD courses. In some cases we didn’t list everything here – just a representative sample. For every training provider there’s a link to their website, where you can find their full list of courses and lots of other information we didn’t have space for.
Last thing about course providers – we think we got all the relevant ones, but those that didn’t have working email addresses or whose websites were difficult to make sense of and extract the data we needed, didn’t make the cut. If you think your company or institution should be included, or have other information you think would be helpful, just contact us. We are actively updating this resource.
Our top 4 recommended training providers
Some people found the full list of personal training course providers a little overwhelming, so we’re providing a shortlist of our recommended providers. These are companies that we either know from working with them, or know of because of their reputation and reach within the industry (obviously, just because a company isn’t listed here, it doesn’t mean there’s necessarily anything wrong with them).
Founded in 2009, PT Academy have since grown to quite a size – they now deliver courses in over 280 venues nationwide! They are partnered with most major health clubs including Pure Gym, The Gym Group, Bannantynes, Xercise 4 Less, and Virgin Active, which is what allows them to give a guarantee that every graduating student will get a job interview. They stress the importance in their approach of using active, professional personal trainers as tutors, and many of their diploma options include 1-on-1 mentorship.
As well as the usual Level 2 and 3 qualifications packaged in various Diplomas, PT Academy offer interesting Level 4 courses such as Advanced Personal Training and Strength & Conditioning. This reach and quality doesn’t come at the expense of convenience, however. With the very modern option of 100% online home study and assessments, along with flexible start dates and 0% interest, it couldn’t be much easier to get started.
If you want to train at your convenience with a major player, check out PT Academy.
Study Active are an established business with students across the UK. They have been running courses since 2012, and are REPS, CIMSPA and ActiveIQ accredited.
Over-delivery is what sets Study Active apart. While all training providers run courses in Continued Professional Development, students of Study Active’s personal trainer course get nine CPD courses free, including ever-popular topics such as kettlebells and suspension training. While their Level 3 course in Personal Training is already in the lowest 20% of all our providers for price, they also have a like-for-like price beat guarantee. Perhaps this, along with the 0% financing and career start-up support, is what has earned them an average of 5 out of 5 star review.
Study Active specialise in blended learning, meaning much of the content is delivered online, with assessments and workshops in person. Blended learning means that students can complete the training at their own pace, with an average of 4-6 months for part-time students, and much faster for those who take a more intensive approach. Study Active are offering a 5% discount on all self-funded (not 19+ loan) courses with the code PTL5.
If you’re looking for flexible learning at an affordable price, use code PTL5 with Study Active.
The Fitness Circle
The Fitness Circle are a family-run business that has been around for 20 years, making them one of the longest established players in an industry with a very high turnover. Flexible client focus is a big advantage of studying with The Fitness Circle. Their courses are delivered through online study, and fit around your schedule. Their student support is given through many different options: face-to-face, phone, email, text, and even WhatsApp or Skype. Practical workshops are optional at no extra charge.
And speaking of price, value for money is another notable feature here. Not only are the Level 3 and Level 2 Personal Trainer courses among the cheapest we’ve seen, but they come with free Continued Personal Development courses. On top of this, they provide 0% interest payment plans, unlimited support, and a price-beating guarantee.
If you’re looking for an established outfit that provides unlimited support at very reasonable rates, check out The Fitness Circle. Be sure to quote code discount5 for an extra 5% off on top of any other offers.
Careers In Fitness
Careers in Fitness are based in London, with locations around the UK. Their sheer number of courses is one factor that sets them apart. It’s mind-boggling. Something like 53 courses, although by the time we publish they might have added more. For those of you who might want to specialise to earn a bigger salary, offerings like Myofascial Release, Behavioural Change, World Jumping and Tri-Planar Kettlebells will give you marketable skills that other trainers probably won’t have. Want to specialise in populations like adolescents or pre and post-natal women? No problem.
For those just starting out, the combined Level 2 and 3 qualification offered by Careers in Fitness is reasonably priced at £1600, which is less expensive than 3/4 of all providers. Although we wouldn’t necessarily recommend making a decision solely on lowest price, in personal training courses, as in many things in life, it is one important factor.
Courses are available as a blend of online and in-person training. And for those of you who like to use very available minute, they have courses available on their own mobile app.

How to use the course information
This is a big list with lots of information, gleaned from surveying the companies themselves as well as researching their offerings. Try to decide what the important features are for you personally. Is it mainly cost? Location? Are you looking for something in particular, like a nutrition and personal training course in one? Then you can narrow down your search.
Each column is sortable, so, for example, you can sort by the length of time that it would take to get a Level 3 qualification. There’s also a search function at the top of the table which will show you only those results that contain your search query.
The table, by default, is in alphabetical order, with those organisations that replied to our industry survey, as a group, at the top.
Disclaimer: We compiled this data by hand, and even though we were careful and it took a long time (we realised why no-one else had done this!), there might be mistakes. The course providers can also change their offerings at any time. So while we do endeavour to keep this up to date, and it should save you many hours or days, it should be a head-start in your research rather than the end. Check important details with the course providers directly.
Affiliate policy: Some of the links to products and services on our site are referral links, where we get paid if you buy something after following the link. We consider this a win-win, as it helps us afford to maintain the website and continue to write useful articles for you. We only recommend things if we think they’re good.
