I chose Discovery Learning because a friend recommended them and they were within my budget. I had a great experience booking the course and the staff were really helpful. The course delivery was clear and every single tutor I had was fantastic. George & Charlotte, Wayne & Justin, Stuart & Laura each had different experiences within the fitness industry and they had so much knowledge to share with me and the course.

The whole Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes Management course was very comprehensive. Having such a detailed Workbook to study from and keep afterwards, as a resource was a big advantage. Nice blend of home study and workshop days too! Just to say thank you for meeting.

David Boost PT Kingston Upon Thames

Thanks so much for the two days; they were both beautifully delivered and very enlightening. I feel really inspired to start putting things into practice with my guys.

I have for now completed my journey with Discovery Learning. I've gone from L2 all the way through both level 4's and it's been life changing. I have met wonderful people, made life long friends, been educated, inspired and equipped with the skills to start a new life which as well.


I found my Personal Training course with Discovery learning to be both very enjoyable and very effective. The course content was extensive and the period of learning very short, meaning the course is very learning intensive, however it is was balanced in a way so that it is certainly not overwhelming.
