Advanced PT Diploma
The Advanced Personal Trainer Diploma includes all of the benefits of our Basic PT Diploma, plus you will learn how to confidently instruct group training sessions, lead effective and fun Circuits classes and become a qualified Kettlebells Instructor.
This Diploma provides graduates with a good base to deliver outdoor and group training sessions with clients, as well as providing all the skills to programme and deliver high quality gym-based training sessions.
Both the Circuits Instructor and the Kettlebells Instructor qualifications are very important for today’s personal trainer. Functional fitness, group bootcamps, small group personal training and circuit-style workouts are all extremely popular and effective for clients, and massively increase your earning potential as a professional personal trainer.
You will also learn how to provide effective group training in circuits and boot camps, how to utilise and incorporate effective kettlebell and boxing pad-work into your clients’ programming. Upon graduation, you will therefore have the ability to train people both one-to-one and in small groups, using a wide variety of specialist strength and conditioning equipment and techniques.
The practical coaching that you will receive exceeds industry requirements for this certificate and together with EPTI’s unmatched level of personal student support, you can be sure to graduate confident and eager to begin your new career.
Graduates receive free lifetime access to a wide range of valuable and practical tools and resources to use in your work as a certified Personal Trainer.
