WHAT DID STUDENTS SAY ABOUT OUR GYM INSTRUCTOR COURSE?
Very enjoyable and informative course. A great course for those starting in the fitness industry. Excellent instruction and support
A great course due in part to a small class but mainly due to a competent instructor who made even the more academic areas enjoyable. Great fun, I would recommend it to anyone.
The course was very well taught – engaging and informative. The level of detail was great and enriched both my own training and my ability to train others. It was challenging but achievable thanks to resources made available and the way course was delivered. I would highly recommend it.
Great teaching, friendly, addressed all needs and very happy.
My instructor Tom was helpful, knowledgeable and made the learning process easy and enjoyable. The course content was broken down well in the full time course and I felt very prepared when it came to my assessments. I would recommend this course to anyone interested and passionate about fitness.
The course was very informative. Tom, our instructor, brought the academic to life with his experience as a PT instructor. Thoroughly enjoyable but challenging. I’m now looking forward to the PT course.
