A worthwhile career

Becoming a personal trainer is something that qualifies you for a very worthwhile career. It is very different from a “gym instructor” where you are merely on hand, often in a busy gym where you are required to do little more than show people how to use the machines. Personal training couldn’t be more different. You have a client who you see on a weekly (or more) basis and you design programmes for them to fit precisely into what they need and what they want to achieve. At the same time, you get to know them, you develop a rapport and more often than not, they become like friends. This not only makes the job endlessly fascinating but it also develops you as a person.

With people these days becoming more and more aware of the need to improve their health and fitness, personal training is an expanding employer market. At Urban Fitness for example, we started ten years ago with only two personal trainers and now we’re here.

The Urban Fitness Academy

Urban Fitness has been in business for 8 years now. We have always prided ourselves on offering a first class, industry leading service for all of our clients, the same standards are applied to the Urban Fitness Academy.

The validating body is ThinkTree Hub, the professional association service for the healthcare, education, wellness and wellbeing industry. At the end of the course you will have a recognised Level 4 Diploma in Personal Training – and what is more, FREE OF CHARGE, your first year’s insurance which will enable you to practise anywhere in Ireland.

Not only that but you will be a member of ThinkTree Hub with a whole raft of benefits to aid you in your new professional career.

What our founder and managing director has to say:

“As a very practical person, I wanted to make sure that our courses were suitable for practical people – people who want hands-on experience which will actually equip them to do the job by the end of the course and in the real world – not just weeks of theory which doesn’t seem to bear any relationship to real life, you ned to do it to learn it. So with this in mind I have kept an eye on it and designed our course to make sure it achieves those objectives.” You are coming to a real gym, to learn from extremely active people in the field, in a modern state of the art fitness facility, it doesn’t get any realer than that.
