The Ten Student Commandments

As a UK leader in personal training qualifications, we've coached our fair share of fitness fanatics into fully fledged fitness professionals (over 40,000 to be precise!) So when it comes to getting a recognised, high quality certification, you can expect a lot from us! That said, with Focus Training, we like to get a little in return! So, if you're picturing lounging through lengthy lectures and textbook teaching, we're probably not the right people for you! If on the other hand, you're after fitness experts with decades of experience, impressive pass rates and innovative teaching methods, you've come to the right place. In return for giving you all the tools you need to become a certified fitness leader, we have a few requests of our own...

Thou Shalt Be Driven To Succeed

It's no use parting with your hard earned cash and your valuable time for something you don't plan to go at all guns blazing. Even the best athletes, sports professionals and fitness leaders had to start with a few studies. So, we ask that you come with an attitude that says 'I will nail this!' alongside a passion to be the best you can be. The rest, you can leave to us...

Thou Shalt Push Thy Limits

For those serious about making a successful business as a fitness professional, having just a basic qualification in the industry isn’t enough. Whilst a Level II Personal Trainer qualification is the first step on the Personal Training ladder, we encourage you to reach for the stars, developing your skills... and in turn, your career prospects.

Thou Shalt Not Suffer In Silence

For some, studying from the comfort of their own home, surrounded by their favourite music and their own forms of inspiration is the perfect idea of learning. For others, the solidarity of studying solo can bring on a bout of cabin fever and a serious case of FOMO*! So, our Tutors ensure we're at the end of the phone, video call, email or chat app, so that whenever you need us, we've got your back.

Thou Shalt Not Settle For A Substandard Qualification

Because why should you? Anyone can claim to be a personal trainer. But experts say that the best way to judge the skills of a personal trainer is in the type and amount of education they have under their streamlined belts.

Our Personal Training courses cover the essential knowledge and insights you won’t pick up on the gym floor. We delve into the workings of the human body, and how to get the very best out of it! Add to that an in-depth series of modules that will allow you to work with a wide range of specialist clients, and the business development skills you'll need to carve out your career, and you're looking at a high-quality certification. Don't accept anything less.

Thou Shalt Not Lose Sleep Over The Spends

We know that studying for your future can hurt the pocket, after all, you have a social life too! So, here at Focus Training, we offer four ways to ease the strain on your wallet, whilst still training for the job of your dreams. Our finance options mean you won't feel tempted to go cheap on your personal training qualification. Which will end up costing you a whole lot more!

Thou Shalt Not Wait Patiently

Our virtual classroom includes interactive audio-visual teaching sessions and allows you to submit your coursework online. Submitting your work is very easy, and allows our tutors to provide feedback much more quickly. Because no-one likes waiting for their results!

You have the option of receiving your manuals and workbooks online, or, if you love the feel of a good old hard copy, we’ll send one out by post too.

Thou Shalt Not Sacrifice Your Social Life

We understand that whilst you’ve chosen to study with us, you have a social life and other commitments elsewhere. So, we won’t hog your time or demand your attention (not too much, anyway!). If you need the flexibility to learn around your already busy schedule, all of our courses allow you to study at your own pace, in your own home, and with the minimum amount of time spent away from work.

Thou Shalt Not Be Restricted By Timescales

Sometimes, you'll want to take your time on things. Other times, you want what you want, and you want it now! All of our courses can be completed between 4 weeks and 4 months. One thing’s for sure, we won’t rush you through. Great things take time, as do great fitness leaders! However, if you'd like to go at it on a full-time basis, we won't keep you hanging around. Speak to the team about our fast track and full time course options.

Thou Shalt Pick Up The Phone

We know that motivation doesn’t always come easily. So, our unique approach includes regular structured contact with our students to ensure that the work is completed to the required standard and that you feel supported and encouraged through the whole experience. Should you need us, we have a student helpline for when you need further info, reassurance or just a few words of wisdom in between studies!

Thou Shalt Have Fun!

Yes, you're a student, and yes, we're educating you. But that doesn't mean we do quiet classrooms, boring textbooks and endless homework! Hundreds of our students have said that the attitudes of our tutors made their course not only innovative but fun. So, if you find us bringing out our own brand of enthusiasm to make your course more engaging, get stuck in and enjoy it with us!
