Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training (Online)
Become an Elite Personal Trainer! Start from the basics and go all the way to creating your own fitness company or start a fitness career!
Our REPs-endorsed Level 2 and 3 combined course is perfect for you if you have no prior fitness qualifications (or if your existing Level 2 qualification didn’t cover the necessary units) and you want to become a personal trainer. By studying both together, you’ll save time and money and have a smooth transition between levels. You can start working as a fitness instructor as soon as you’ve finished Level 2.
The course will teach you about the principles of exercise, fitness and health; anatomy and physiology; health, safety and welfare; and how to support your clients.
You’ll first learn about the human body and how it works, then move on to how to support clients. You’ll learn to design, manage and adapt an exercise programme for healthy adults of all ages and special populations, and how to support this with proper nutrition. You’ll also learn to motivate clients effectively to stick to their plan.
After completing the course, you’ll have the qualification, skills and knowledge you need to build lifetime success as a personal trainer.

You can start working as a fitness instructor after completing the first half of the course, then become a REPs-endorsed personal trainer after graduating from Level 3.
