Your PT qualification is just the start of your fitness education. Knowing your exercises and training modalities is only half the battle. Without developing your business skills and coaching techniques, as well as understanding the science behind what you’re delivering, you could be in the 90% that don’t make it.
Develop your USP, build your brand, advertise your business, attract new leads and convert them into sales, re-signs and referrals. Develop the psychological and relationship-building skills that get real results and build your reputation. Deliver your knowledge with confidence and your clients will respect you, recommend you and stay with you.

In a constantly changing industry, the key to survival is adaptability. Those who make it are able to identify their own weaknesses, spot potential opportunities and invest in their continued self-development. Currently, only 1 in every 10 newly qualified PTs makes it past their first year. We can be better than that! It's time to shake things up and really make a difference.

What if I’m not yet a qualified Personal Trainer?
Whilst our service is aimed at fitness professionals who already know the basics, if you’re not yet qualified you can still gain a lot of insight by joining Primal Academy. If you’re thinking about changing career perhaps, but haven’t yet found the time to take your Level 2 and 3, completing some of our online workshops in the meantime is a great way to set yourself apart from the crowd before you’ve even joined it. That way, once you have got qualified, you can hit the ground running
What if I change my mind after signing up?
At Primal Academy we believe that if you make an investment, you should always see a return. That’s why we offer a 30 day money-back guarantee on our online subscription service. If you sign up and don’t find the workshops beneficial, you’re free to cancel your membership within the first 30 days and we’ll return your month one fee with no quibbles.
Can I purchase individual workshops without subscribing?
Of course! If there’s just one specific topic about which you’d like to learn more, you can purchase all our online workshops individually by clicking on the ‘Buy Single Workshop’ button. The individual workshops are priced between £35 and £75 depending on the length and detail of the course.
What additional resources will I get if I subscribe?
As part of your Primal Academy membership you will get access to a heap of invaluable resources that will help you streamline your business, including an extensive video library of exercises, downloadable programmes, sales scripts, preferential rates with our recommended industry partners and access to an exclusive Facebook community where you can chat to our tutors, get support, ask questions and start networking with your fellow members.
Are Primal Academy’s workshops filmed in a working gym?
Yes, we film all our workshops in our very own facility - Primal Gym, which is based in Leeds in the north of England. All our tutors are PTs themselves and the Primal Gym business model is very much centred around Personal Training and Small Group PT so you can be confident that everything you’ll be learning comes from a background of real, and highly relevant industry experience.
Can I try out the subscription service to see if I like it?
Absolutely. We offer a free try-before-you-buy taster, which allows you access to certain lessons within each workshop so you can get a feel for what we do before you subscribe.
