Quality Courses

“Quality means doing it right when nobody is looking!”

— Henry Ford

Not all fitness qualifications are equal…and when it comes to your future success, the quality of your qualification is crucial. Anyone can claim to be a personal trainer but experts say, and your future employers will know, that the best way to judge the skills of a personal trainer is in the quality of education they have under their streamlined belts.

Reputable training providers will provide personal trainer certification that will allow you to join the REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) register on completion. If you plan to follow your studies with a fitness career, this is the register you’ll need to be on!

Focus Training is recognised as a training provider of the highest quality, all of our courses are recognised by REPS, and so you can rest assured you’re working towards a highly reputable qualification.

Student Support & Safeguarding

Focus Training tutors not only have a passion for fitness but a wealth of experience in delivering teaching sessions that are interactive, innovative and fun. We don’t just teach…we provide support through revision, practical workshops, group work and one to one support to ensure we’re getting the very best out of you, and you get the very best out of our personal trainer courses!

We’ve tutored more than 40,000 students so you certainly won’t be on your own. Our virtual classroom provides all your online training resources 24/7, but we’ll conduct regular catch-ups by phone, email, Skype and in-person to ensure that you have everything you need. Whether it’s a course-related query or you simply need a few words of wisdom, we’ve got your back covered.

Safeguarding Policy

At Focus Training, the safety of learners is crucial. The company therefore has safeguarding measures in place to protect every learner. Focus Training is fully committed to providing a working and learning environment that is free from abuse and harm. It actively promotes a culture and environment that allows learners to feel safe and secure with maximum opportunity for personal development, for example independence, self-esteem, health and respect for others.

This is achieved by clearly identifying and communicating the safeguarding roles and responsibilities within the organisation, putting in place appropriate staff training as well as having clear procedures in relation to safeguarding risks and issues and is aligned to the Government’s Prevent Agenda. Health & Safety arrangements are also in place to ensure all teaching and assessment sites are a safe environment for our learners and staff.

Focus Training has a Designated Safeguarding Co-Ordinator for concerns and queries. If you would like to discuss the Safeguarding arrangements or report a Safeguarding concern, please contact our designated person:

Our network of carefully selected training centres stretches the length and breadth of the UK. Most of our courses, full and part-time, will involve participation in practical sessions which we deliver at state of the art venues. Modern environments with superb facilities in easily accessible locations. So, no matter where you live, there’ll be a course coming to a town near you!

Take a look at our course locations and venues.



Payment Options

If you are dreaming of a career in fitness but feeling the pinch before you start we won’t let your bank balance get in the way of your dreams.

Whilst paying in full when you enrol will get you a ‘pay in full’ discount, many of our students take advantage of our interest-free loans to pay in manageable monthly instalments over a longer period of time. It’s very easy to set up and we guarantee you’ll pay no more than the standard course price. There’s no downside so why wouldn’t you?

If you want to reduce your monthly outgoings even further by paying over a longer timescale we can also arrange flexible finance for you.

Advanced Learning Loans are still available for people aged 19 years or over. This is a government loan scheme, which is applicable to many of our most popular Personal Trainer courses. It works in a very similar way to the Finance England loan scheme for university students. Again, it’s very easy to apply and our advisers will help you.

Whatever your circumstances talk to our course advisers and discover what’s on offer to help you fund your fitness qualification.



“I chose Focus Training because of their excellent reputation within the industry. Within 3 months of graduating, I'm now earning 30% more than before.”
— Susan T - Personal Trainer, Chelmsford
“Tracey was brilliant, so friendly, put me at ease and so helpful, she is a credit to your company.”
“Mike, our tutor, was brilliant. He was my telephone tutor too so it was great to meet him. I am dyslexic and he was amazing, so patient and very understanding.”
“The Level 2 Gym Instructor course was very well presented and I cannot praise the tutor enough for a great weekend. I have attended courses with other companies and this has been the best so far.”
“Matt was excellent at communication and kept me interested and engaged. He was so enthusiastic.”
“I was inspired by the knowledge and passion the tutor had for what she was doing.”
“Ross was very inspiring when discussing the subject matter, using his experience as practical examples.”
“Becky always called me on time.”
“Tracey has made me more confident and excited about the course. She has been amazing, so helpful, knowledgeable and really made me feel at ease.”
“Ross was an inspiring character to learn from and built rapport across the group very well.”
“The training gave me more confidence and our tutor was very understanding with the group. He taught me much so much more over the weekend to add to what I had learned from the home study.”
“Just wanted to say thank you for everything. I really feel I wouldn't have passed without your help these last few weeks. You restored my confidence and made me believe in myself again. Keep doing what you do as you really do help people achieve their dreams.”
— Allyson Spencer

It's Not The Tools, It's How You Use Them

Choosing your personal trainer course is a big decision. Not only will it help you to carve your future career path, but the quality of your fitness qualification will play a large part in building your reputation in the industry.

Sure, you’ll want a professional personal trainer course that’s affordable, available in your area and that covers the subjects that interest you. That’s given, but personal trainer certification from Focus Training can open doors within the industry that other certificates may not.

We teach the same basic skills from the same curriculum and probably in the same order! However, we pack in much more of a punch with over 15 years’ experience, dedicated tutor support and a solid reputation for being one of the UK’s leading training providers. We don’t do average and with our support, neither do our students.

Getting started is easy, we have regular Gym Instructor courses scheduled at training venues across the UK, and you can choose from full-time and part-time learning options. Part-time offers you more flexibility to study around existing commitments before just three days of attendance. Or, if speed is of the essence and you like the idea of face-to-face learning, our full-time Gym Instructor courses deliver exactly the same qualification in five consecutive days of attendance.

So, whether you’re taking your first step on the ladder with a Gym Instructor Course or ready to take it to the next level, with a Personal Training Course, the world of fitness awaits you.
