I highly recommend Performance Training Academy! Ash and his team are brilliant, they are all so supportive and passionate about what they do.I completed the L3 Personal Training qualification with PTA.One of the reasons I chose PTA, was because of the face to face training days and I can say it was definitely worth the investment! Will and Pete really help you to apply the online theory which gives you the confidence to start using the qualification and pursue your business goals.

I cannot praise Ash and the team at Performance Training Academy enough. They have changed my life for the better in so many ways. I have always wanted to get into the fitness industry but I could never afford it and I never had the guts to make that transition. During lockdown I found out I was going to become a father which gave me the inspiration to make that change. I had constant communication from Ash, any support I needed I got quickly and I really enjoyed the way the co tent was delivered. Made life so easy to learn when I could.

I would highly recommend the Performance Training Academy. Such a friendly and supportive way to learn, and the practical days complimented the thorough online course content perfectly. I completed the level 2 Fitness Instructor course which was full of great quality, thorough and easily accessible information that was clear and great to set you up for the online exams and quizzes. So much information is readily available via their online platform, and the best thing is its there to go back to whenever you want even once you've completed the course. Ash and co are great at guiding you through the coursework and practical components, and great at building confidence, no question is a silly one and someone's always willing to help. Great!I'll also mention I was pregnant at the time of taking the course (filmed the practical exam 8 months gone) and the team made sure I was safe, supported and included in practical workshops where suitable. Amazing.

Great people and training provider, I really cannot recommend Performance Training Academy highly enough.From my first meeting with Ash, he has been nothing but supportive and guided me through my studies until I qualified and continues to do so, even now that I am qualified as a Level 3 Personal Trainer.The practical workshops are great and are run by Pete and Will, who are local established PTs, with so much knowledge to guide you through also.The personable, friendly, yet maintaining professionalism, approach that you receive from Ash, Pete and Will make the whole course more enjoyable.If you are looking to work in the fitness industry and would like to learn from the best, Performance Training Academy is the company to go to, you won’t regret it.
