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.
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’ve just completed my strength training and sports conditioning and I wanted to complement the course leader Emanuel Knowles on a very informative and enjoyable course. He proved to be extremely knowledgeable and exceeded my expectation in every way and I’d like to send him a thank you.
My experience has been great. I decided to do the Diploma in Personal Training as the cost included the additional short courses, and I wanted to be a fully qualified PT. I would highly recommend all aspects of the course. The content is fantastic. I especially loved the fact that you can study at your own time and pace. The intensive days are also great. The knowledge of the course tutors is amazing. I could literally sit there for days on end soaking up all the knowledge! On a personal level, it has really helped my own fitness training. Understanding how to train to reach specific goals at the same time as knowing what you are really doing. I think many people train at the gym for years seeing some results but never fully understanding what the training they are doing does physically. When I train now I see results quick! The nutrition part of the course I believe is also essential in accompanying fitness training. Understanding the relationship between nutrition and fitness is key in seeing the correct results. Overall I would highly recommend the course to anyone. The knowledge I have learned has set me up for life especially in terms of correct nutrition and health benefits. (I wish they taught this at school years ago!) It also has given me the ability to change careers within 6 months! Whichever direction you take following the course I think it doesn't matter! I personally will use the knowledge learned from the course across all aspects of my personal life. I also know I have this qualification to fall back on if needed! Thanks to the Discovery team!
I had an absolutely fantastic time on my PT/Special Populations courses and would like to write a letter to the company to express how well delivered the courses were for the military personnel and other course members. Thanks again for your assistance.
I contacted Discovery about their personal trainer diploma, and within hours I had all the information I needed to start my new career path. The people there are really friendly, and have great knowledge about what they teach. From starting my course in December 2008 and finishing in May 2009, I began working at Fitness First and so far to date (15/07/2009) I have built up my business very quickly with 15 weekly clients within the first two months! I can highly recommend Discovery for anyone looking to pursue a career in the fitness industry. After finishing my course, they aren't just my past tutors; they are also now my friends!
My tutor was very helpful during my time on the course. She was very professional but with that good fun. Lou was always easy to talk to if you had any problems or just general questions about the course or any of the modules covered. Lou has excellent subject knowledge and this made it easy to learn from her and gain from her experience. The course started for me having a broken wrist, this however didn't stop me getting stuck in with the bits of the course that I could do. I enjoyed my time on the course for two reasons, the first is that I got to meet a great bunch of people all enthusiastic about the same thing, and the second was the learning team which made everything easy to understand. I came out of this course adding to my knowledge of physiology and gaining a vast knowledge about working in a gym. Two weeks after the course finished I got myself a job at LA Fitness and am now gaining experience as a Fitness Instructor, this is down to the support and help of everyone on the course!
