Become a Personal Trainer

How do I pick a quality personal training provider?

Here at Focus Training, we talk about ‘quality’ all the time. We are obsessed with it because we know it’s the key to you gaining a qualification that will lead to success in the fitness industry. We give you more than a qualification, we give you the skills and knowledge to do the job well, and a whole lot more bang for your buck besides!

Sadly, not all training providers think the same. So, how can you spot the difference between a reputable, high-quality training provider and one that, well, shall we say, is not so clever!

We believe that support is the key. At Focus Training, we offer telephone tutor support (regular and by appointment) online and face-to-face support. And, if you need extra support, we will provide it when you need it (not days later!). Poor quality training providers cut corners here; you may receive little or no face-to-face contact, at best through email.

All our tutors are experienced, fully qualified Personal Trainers who have worked in the industry for several years as personal trainers and have extensive tutoring experience. Focus Training tutors undertake further learning to achieve qualifications in teaching and assessment.

We understand how prices differ across training providers for seemingly the same qualification. To put it simply, buy on price alone and you will get what you pay for. If you take your chances, then prepare to be disappointed! Our payment options are transparent. We offer finance to help you pay in regular monthly instalments. A deposit is required to secure your booking. When choosing a training provider, read the small print. We have seen some providers offering finance at up to 35% APR. For some of our courses, it is possible to get government funding (contact us for details).

And finally, congratulations! Deciding to take the next step of your career journey in the fitness industry is a big step. The industry is booming right now and with it constantly evolving and growing, it’s an exciting time to get involved and become a Personal Trainer.

Remember, there's a fine line between making a sound investment in your future fitness success and simply throwing money out the window on something that doesn't work. The difference? Knowing how to choose the right training provider who will help you reach your goals. Our course buyers guide for more advice.
