Endorsed Diploma in Personal Training

Here's why you should take a personal trainer course!

Did you know that only 2% of health club members actually use the gym?


Why? Well, people are desperate to get fit. But they lack the motivation - and the staying power.

That's why the demand for personal trainers outstrips the number of trainers. Clients know that a personal trainer will keep them at it.

For you that's an amazing opportunity. Put your fitness skills to work - and become a personal trainer.

You love fitness. And people need your help in getting fit.


So what are you waiting for? Why not learn how to set up your own personal training business?

Level 4 Diploma

On successfully completing this course, you will receive two Certificates.

The first is a Diploma from the Blackford Centre.

The second is a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards, our Ofqual-regulated Accreditation Body. Read more...

Many would-be trainers can't attend classroom courses because they have to earn a living. And many can't afford the steep prices charged by many private training organisations. That's why this distance learning course is such a great solution.

And many courses lack the kind of personal support that we provide. That's vital because we know from experience every student has different needs.

Your course pack is bursting with helpful items. You'll get the course modules, the assignments, self-assessment exercises, and helpful forms and checklists that you'll need for your clients.

  2. If, 90 days after completing the course, you haven't earned at least the cost of the course as a fitness trainer, we'll refund your money. Conditions apply



Do you know why most people are unsuccessful? They suffer from 'hesitation'. They never quite get around to changing their life. Because they're nervous, anxious, or unsure. So ask yourself, what have I got to lose - not much given our two-fold guarantee. And what have you got to gain - a whole new life.

So don't be like most people - they click away to another page, saying 'I must get round to that one day'. Wrong! Today is the day when you must register on this course.

Did you know that over the last six years Britain's gyms have seen a 58 per cent increase in membership. But there is a huge drop-out rate. Gyms make their money from non-attenders. That means there are millions of people seeking to get fit - but failing. That's a huge opportunity for you.

With best wishes

PS - I'll tell you a secret. As you'd expect, we spend a lot of time on the course showing you the right schedule of exercises etc. And although all these things are useful, the main thing that people learn on the course is how to find clients! That's what allows our students to set up their practice - knowing what steps to take. And it's those secrets that we unlock in the course.
