Delivered by leading fitness professionals

ASSESSMENTS & ACCREDITATIONS
It is important when enrolling on to a course that you have a clear timeline to completion and an understanding of what you need to do to pass.
As soon as you enrol, your course support tutor will arrange an Assessment Plan call with you so that they can talk you through each unit of the course and how they are assessed. This will essentially be your timeline to completion and will set you some motivation with your studies and targets to aim for.
Once you complete a unit online, it can be assessed immediately, allowing you to do the assessment whilst the knowledge is fresh and to save you hanging around for an exam. Our online end-of-unit assessments can all be done from the comfort of your own home when you are ready to do so. Your support tutor will be at hand to help with any revision and to get everything organised for you.
To showcase the knowledge you have learnt from the practical workshops and the online content, as well as allowing you to show us how you will want to be acknowledged as a Personal Trainer, you will build up a body of work by completing a course portfolio and working with a case study client.
This body of work will essentially be based on your training of an individual as an active client – analysing and educating them on their training, lifestyle and nutritional habits.
Your course support tutor will be at hand to help with this every step of the way, this stage of your learning reflects who you are as an individual and it builds up your experience, knowledge and confidence in training a client.
As well as documenting a clients journey through training and nutrition, you will complete the course by submitting to us a filmed assessment of you training your client in a gym or non-gym environment.
This filmed assessment is again done in your own time and in your own environment, giving a real relaxed sense to the assessment, allowing you to truly be yourself and to also document your transition from study to being a fully qualified Personal Trainer.
Note: We can also arrange ‘in-person’ assessments.
The Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training qualification is governed by YMCA Awards and is industry recognised, both in the United Kingdom and Worldwide, meaning you can work as a personal trainer anywhere in the world.
Upon completion of our qualifications, you’ll also be able to gain membership with the standardising body for the Health and Fitness Industry – CIMSPA (previously REPS – The Register of Exercise Professionals).

What Our Students Are Saying
The whole course from start to finish was well prepared and thought through. Every practical day was great fun and I learnt a lot. I enjoyed meeting the same group of people each time and building lasting friendships. The theory for the course is perfect as you can do it in your own time in and around busy lifestyles which is perfect for some like me with work commitments and 3 children. I continued to finish my level 2 and started my level 3 straight after and I have just completed my final exam all thanks to Ash and the team at Performance Training Academy!
It enabled the delivery of the course content to suit my needs. I successfully achieved my qualification within my needed time scale, learning and retaining more information then I thought I would, as I usually struggle in class-based environments, so with this learning platform I was really impressed and thankful.
I would recommend Performance Training Academy to anyone thinking of taking the course. Their deliverance of the content will keep you engaged and interested throughout the course, they also provide ongoing support after you have completed and begin your career as a Personal Trainer. I am now working as a recognised Personal Trainer out of a gym in Dubai.
I wanted to be a Personal Trainer because I became passionate about exercise and enjoyed learning new methods and wanted to share that with the wider world. The course was a fantastic way to get a feel for the gym environment as it was based in a working gym. My tutor’s at Performance Training Academy work their hardest to help all students achieve their individual goals within the course. It’s a very friendly and relaxed environment with a professional feel – which is exactly what they emphasise you convey to your clients.
Now I have qualified I plan on setting up all of my social media bases and working on my fitness personality through these and start to gain clients. I will be working for myself and then eventually look into potentially relocating and working from a gym. I will also be using Ash in the future for any programme queries or business advice!

WHAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY
After leaving the Royal Navy, I wanted to pursue a career in Personal Training. I fully enjoyed this course and the online content was great
I am really enjoying it and looking forward to doing further courses with Performance Training in the very near future.
I highly recommend them for anyone looking to get into the industry.
I went straight on from passing the Level 3 Course to being a freelance personal trainer, and now, a couple of months on, I have established my initial body of clients, and set up an exercise class, which is going really well.
I would fully recommend Performance training as a great all round training academy.
If you are thinking of becoming a Personal Trainer – I can not praise Performance Training Academy enough…
Charlie Powell - Professional rugby player with Bristol Bears
The online content was excellent and the flexibility in study allowed me to qualify around my rugby commitments
Our tutor was always supportive and helpful in ensuring we understood how to apply sports massage techniques to future clients
The flexible study with Performance Training Academy was perfect as it allowed me to work my full time job whilst getting qualified… leading to my new career that I love
I became a Personal Trainer as exercise was something I enjoyed doing and I wanted to have a career that would fit in around my young family.
I am now running my own personal training business, and have built up a good client base already, I never thought it would have taken off this quickly but it really has!
A massive thank you to Ash at Performance Training Academy for allowing this to happen and for the amazing teaching, instructing and support!
In my opinion, Ash Hough and The Performance Training Academy is by far the best training provider of the Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification. I would thoroughly and whole heartedly recommend them to any one, knowing that Ash and his team will get you through the course and qualified and able to take your place within the fitness industry with knowledge and equally important credibility that future employers and clients alike will value.
The course was run extremely well, the content and its delivery I cannot fault. Everyone in the room was of different abilities yet the lessons and practicals were always really well balanced and fun! I really enjoyed the anatomy and physiology lessons, and the strength and conditioning type practicals. My tutor Ash and the whole group were fantastic and made me feel really confident as I progressed through the course.
