Level 2? What happened to Level 1?

Why does it start with Level 2? We have no idea, but it does! The industry-standard ‘Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instruction’ qualifies you to work as an entry-level gym fitness instructor, though pretty much every employer requires the ‘Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training’ – the miniumum needed to be able to offer personal training services.

What’s the Nutrition & Weight Management Course all about?

This industry is competitive. We include this as we belive instructors should have a grounding in nutrition and the tools to be able to analyse and offer correct guidance to clients. This knowledge will give you an edge over your peers and get results for your clients.

Can I do distance learning?

Our blended learning approach includes e-Learning so that you can start immediately and access a comprehensive online platform packed with resources. However, such is the practical nature of the fitness industry that we want to make sure you're completely confident coaching and therefore we do expect learners to attend workshop days. These tend to be weekends as many of our learners have other commitments to fit around.

So Primal is a working gym too?

It certainly is and very much built around personal training and group PT with bags of specialist training expertise to start soaking up. This means that you can be confident that everything you'll be learning is right at the cutting edge of where the fitness industry is at right now.

What do I do once I’ve finished this course?

Qualifying as a Personal Trainer is just the start and we've got bags of support to help you launch your career with a bang and keep your progression constant. Check out the Primal Pathway Courses below to look at how you can specialise and truly stand out as a PT.
