I am pleased to announce that I am now a qualified Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor having passed my Level 3 Fitness Diploma. This has been an ambition of mine for a while and it feels great to have achieved it! In this article we’ll be taking a look at how I managed to become a qualified PT despite working a full time job.

How did I become a qualified PT

My journey to become a qualified Personal Trainer began in January last year when I set myself the New Year’s resolution to become a qualified PT by January 2019. The main challenge for me was finding a course that allowed me to balance my working life as a full time marketer and other commitments. Many courses out there require an awful lot of contact time coupled with strict deadlines. For me signing up to a rigid course would not have worked.

I needed a course with flexibility that would allow me to study in my own time when it suited me, and this is when I started looking into online personal training courses. In the end I decided upon the Level 3 Fitness Diploma offered by New Skills Academy.

This course was broken down into 32 modules focusing on various different areas such as how to run a personal training business, how to approach training a client as well as all the theory behind building muscle and living a healthy lifestyle.

Flexible personal training course

The course allowed me to complete the modules in my own time, giving me complete flexibility to choose when I wanted to study. This made the course enjoyable and took the pressure off as I never felt that I had to do a module if I didn’t have time or had to work late.

If anyone with limited time wants to become a qualified Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor, then I really do recommend the PT course available from New Skills Academy. The course is approved by The CPD Certification Service, so you can rest assured that your qualification is accredited.

Certified Personal Trainer

On completion of the course I received a PDF download of my Level 3 Fitness Diploma Certificate to confirm that I’m now officially qualified. It definitely felt good getting the piece of paper that confirms my qualification.

It has certainly been a great experience becoming a Certified Personal Trainer and I’m looking forward to using my knowledge to help provide even better advice through the Supplement Secrets blog.
