The only definitive list of personal training courses and providers in London & the UK
To become a personal trainer you need an appropriate qualification. But with so many organisations doing PT training up and down the country, how can you decide which one to choose? 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 exact names of the courses differ, but the important thing is it must be certified by a recognised body such as CYQ, TQ, Active IQ, or YMCA Awards. We asked the training providers which body approves their certifications, and included information from those that responded in our table below.
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 the salary you can earn 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.
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. Companies, on the other hand, are more likely to offer 0% finance to those that need it, so it’s 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, whereas companies dedicated to PT training 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.
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 will keep this resource updated.
Our top 5 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. All of the shortlisted companies are reputable providers accredited with appropriate bodies. They’re listed here in alphabetical order.
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.

Discovery Learning are located in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, and Portsmouth, giving them a wide reach. And they use this reach to qualify a very large number of trainees each year. Despite this high volume, their pass rate is an incredible 98.9%.
In addition to the Level 2 and 3 personal trainer courses, they have many continued professional development courses, from Business & Marketing to Mixed Martial Arts. They also do courses for people transitioning out of the Armed Forces.
Discovery have been in the business for 15 years, which is reassuring when there are so many companies around, many of which have much less experience under their belt. As part of their package, all trainees get a guaranteed interview with Everyone Active, who run over 150 leisure centres around the country. Lastly, for those who are wondering how to finance their course, they have 0% finance available.
If you’re looking for an experienced provider with a high pass rate, give Discovery Learning a try.
No1 Fitness Education is a new training provider, a sister company of No1 Fitness, a well-established personal training gym based in London. The guys at No1 Fitness were disappointed at the quality of the PTs who were coming to them looking to work, so they established their own training company to do it right.
Ben Camara and Harry Thomas, who founded No1 Fitness, have personally trained famous singers like Madonna, supermodels such as Kate Moss, TV personalities including Gok Wan, and journalists, photographers, directors and many more. Being at the very peak of their profession, they and their team of trainers bring across a huge wealth of experience and success to the training course business.
No1 Fitness Education focusses on the core Level 3 qualification to become a personal trainer, with a handful of further courses available. A notable feature of their courses is that while you’re studying with them, you can train with their PTs as much as you want for three months. When you qualify, they will help you to get interviews with one their partners, such as Fitness First, easyGym, M.E.T.A Fitness & Nutrition Studio, and Nuffield Health.
If you’re looking to learn from a very successful team, look up No1 Fitness.
Origym is a training provider set up by personal trainers for personal trainers, with locations in the North, South, and Midlands, as well as Wales and Scotland. They own 11 personal training studios, making them the largest chain of private personal training studios in the UK.
All of their tutors are qualified PTs with a minimum of 5 years experience, which is a lot considering the turnover rate in the industry. It means they have learned what it takes to stick around and succeed. And they seem to be getting results: an incredible rating of 9.6 out of 10 on TrustPilot.
For those of you who already have an appropriate Level 2 qualification, the Level 3-only from Origym is among the cheapest around. There are also quite a few CPD courses available. And they have 0% payment plans available.
If you want affordable training from experienced tutors near you, try Origym.
YMCAfit are a very large training provider with branches in Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Manchester, and Nottingham. They’ve been going for an incredible 31 years, and have trained more than 100,000 instructors.
YMCAfit is unique among training providers for a couple of reasons. Firstly, they are a not-for-profit charity. The business of training PTs is part of their mission to “help people to live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives”.
Secondly, they are both a training provider and an accrediting body. In other words, they certify that other training providers are up to scratch. So you know that their own courses – including quite a few CPD courses – are to the highest standards. Perhaps that’s why 97% of their students would recommend them.
If you want to train with the biggest and oldest of the training providers, try YMCAfit.
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 will 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 provider websites.
Advertising policy: Some of the links to products and services on our site are referral links, where we get paid if you follow the link, see something you like, and buy it. This helps us afford to maintain the website and write useful articles for you. We don’t recommend things just for the money, but only if we think they’re good. We don’t run adverts or accept paid articles or product placements, because we want to keep the experience of using the site pleasant and uncluttered, and for people to be able to rely on our recommendations.
We hope you find the right training for you to start your career as a personal trainer. Do let us know if this resource was useful to you.
