    Level Two Course

    I found the course content to be very in depth and a methodical approach to the theory element really helped to get through it. When it came to the practical elements, Ben was very helpful in providing guidance and very much putting you at ease prior to the assessments. Overall, a very good course, great content which I can look back on and refer to along with excellent support throughout from Ben. Many thanks.

    Great course

    I recently took a great personal training course that was very beneficial! My trainer were amazing, knowledgeable, and supportive. The course covered everything from strength training to injury prevention. What made it special was the personal attention and hands-on practice. It improved my fitness and boosted my confidence. Highly recommend!


    Tutor Ben was fantastic, and the Course was nice and easy to follow.
