Premier Training International: 3 Steps to Becoming a Personal Trainer

As a society we are constantly looking for help, advice and support and this is evident for the health and fitness industry. The health and fitness industry is an attractive industry for employment opportunities. The UK active leisure, learning and well‐being sector currently represents just over 2% of the UK workforce. Premier is the number one training provider in building quality foundations for aspiring fitness professional to launch successful industry careers.


Below are steps you need to help kick start your personal training career.


Step One – How to Become a Personal Trainer

Be honest with yourself; is now the right time to make sure becoming a personal trainer is the correct move for you? You have to make sure that you have what it takes to make a successful career and becoming a personal trainer. You have to be self-motivated, be a good role model for your clients and love working with a variety of different people. If you think you have what it takes then follow the rest of these steps.


Step Two – How to Become a Personal Trainer

In order to start on a career path as a personal trainer, students can take up Premier’s flagship Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training. In just six weeks you can be fully accredited, fully qualified and ready to take your first steps in the world of health and fitness.


The Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training involves:

  • Gold standard in the health and fitness industry
  • Qualify in just 6 weeks (part time options available)
  • 0% interest-free credit options and funding available*
  • Includes Kettlebells, ViPR, circuit training, first aid and your REP’s membership
  • Over 40 UK training venues to choose from
  • 12 months’ career support
  • Guaranteed interviews


Step Three – How to Become a Personal Trainer

Premier offers a special service, Premier Futures, dedicated to forging links between learners and major industry employers such as Pure Gym and David Lloyd. Once you have completed the Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training you can either seek employment within these organisations (and others) or alternatively you can become a self-employed personal trainer.


If you go on to be a self-employed PT, Premier offers Continued Professional Development (CPD) courses, which are fantastic ways for self-employed PTs to keep on top of their game. They’re the perfect opportunity for PTs to increase the revenue potential of their business. For example, Suspended Movement Training can increase the versatility of your commercial offering as well as providing another level of expertise and keeping the client active and engaged in their PT programme.


Hopefully these steps have helped point you in the right direction when it comes to changing your career and becoming a personal trainer.
