Level 3 Diploma in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training

A deep understanding of Personal Training, the authority to coach it, and the ability to turn what you know into results.

The Educate Fitness Level 3 Diploma will teach you all that, including the methodology we’ve tested, refined, and proven with over 10,000 clients.

We'll get you industry-ready

Imagine how good it would feel to have confidence in your Personal Training knowledge… to finally feel qualified to give Personal Training advice… and to feel ready to coach anyone to better health and fitness.

The research is clear: To help people get the results they want, the best place to focus is on their health and fitness.

But understanding Personal Training science is only a small part of what it takes to get people the results they deserve. It only matters if you also know how to help someone change their behaviour.

The Educate Fitness Personal Training diploma is the only program in the UK that effectively teaches you both. And our knowledge isn’t based on theory.

Our professionals have years upon years of Personal Training, we know what works and what doesn't. We have coached real people every single day.

That’s why we’re the #1 recommended Personal Training Diploma in the UK, with over 10,000 health and fitness professionals choosing to get qualified by us.

Now we’re ready to teach you the Personal Training science you need to feel competent—and the behaviour-change coaching skills you need to deliver sustainable results for anyone.

The experts that other experts come to for help.

Developed and written by Damian Foster (MCIMSPA), Matt Sugai and Nick Cuming, the 'Level 3 Diploma for the Personal Training Practitioner' Certification is the synthesis of everything we’ve learned over 15 years of coaching and research in Personal Training.
