GYM LEVEL 2 AND PERSONAL TRAINER LEVEL 3 COURSES ARE AVAILABLE IN ONLINE FORMAT ONLY
The Gym Group – Leeds
This is a new gym concept, offering high spec facilities at an affordable price and the sheer size of their facility of Leeds matched with the equipment provides the perfect environment for our tutors to deliver our courses at the standard we expect. If you are looking to become a personal trainer or fitness professional, our Leeds venue caters for our part time personal training courses and gym instructor courses, providing modern facilities that are ideal to providing a great learning experience for all of our students.
Getting to the Venue
Accessible by car and within walking distance of Leeds train station; there are parking facilities within the local area if necessary and also bus services going to and from the venue into town and other popular locations.
We are now running our successful Gym and Personal Trainer courses at our new venue in Leeds.
Both Gym and Personal trainer courses will be run on a part time basis which entails home study with attendance weekends. The Gym instructor course usually takes 5 weeks to complete and the Personal Trainer courses take about 5-6 months to complete. Students can of course take their time completing these courses and take longer if they wish.
Tutor: Matthew Cottle
Tutoring Approach: I love the Fitness Industry and teaching students across the country. I like to teach in a way which makes the material as practical as possible. I believe it is important to be able to take the information gathered in all of our courses and apply to real life situations so this is my aim.
