EPTI Graduate Testimonials

I understand that choosing the right personal training course is a tough decision... I went through the same process almost 20 years ago now when I was in the same position as you.

The part of I found the hardest and most tedious was wading through the sales patter of the various different training providers that I enquired with.

EPTI was set up by personal trainers and is still run to this day by personal trainers.  None of us are salesmen, nor do we want to be. We wanted to create a training course that was different from what was being offered elsewhere.

Our aim is for the course to speak for itself and if you take time to read or watch our past students' feedback, then I'll let you decide as to whether we've been successful in achieving that objective.

One of the biggest fears and doubts that potential students have when I speak to them on the telephone before they sign up for a course, is whether they will “make it” as a personal trainer once they graduate.

Maybe this is what you are thinking right now?

You’ve read the motivational quotes… “If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life” and this idea sounds great. You really want to follow your passion and do something that you love, but what it really comes down to is, “Can I make a career out of training people for money, will clients really pay to train with ME?”

Well, as I said before, I’ve had this conversation with countless students over the years. It is true, many personal trainers do fall by the wayside and never reach their potential within the industry - they maybe didn’t get the results they’d hoped for with their clients, or maybe they struggled to find enough clients...there are many reasons for this, but usually it’s because they chose a certification that cut corners, that only offered the minimum in terms of providing an assessment which didn’t prepare them for the role of a personal trainer once they had their certificate in hand.
