Thinking of becoming a Personal Trainer?

With ever more people joining and attending leisure centres, as well as engaging personal trainers, many people are beginning to see such a career as a viable option. For those that are suited to personal training it is both an emotionally and financially rewarding career.

If you are considering becoming a personal trainer, then you are at the threshold of what may become a new and fulfilling chapter in your life. There are many ways that you can work as a personal trainer and Everyone Active is always looking for great personal trainers to work in its 160+ centres all over the UK. Remember, you don’t need to give up your existing job to become a personal trainer and you can work part time as a PT to supplement your full-time income, allowing you to profit from your passion.

Discovery Learning

How do I make a start?

You must study for and pass a recognised personal trainer qualification in order to work as a PT here in the UK. There are many providers of personal trainer courses all over the country, but here at Everyone Active, we are in partnership with Discovery Learning, one of the leading personal trainer course providers in the UK.


The two formal qualifications necessary to become a personal trainer in the UK are the Level 2 Gym Instructor and the Level 3 Personal Trainer certificates. Discovery provides both these qualifications together in a combined package for those starting from scratch, or individually for students that already have the level 2 certification. Furthermore, Discovery Learning only uses the UK’s top awarding organisation for fitness: Central YMCA Qualifications. This means that your qualification will be recognised anywhere in the UK and all over the world, too.
