What is the pre-requisite?
All prospective Personal Trainers must have a recognised  Level 2 Fitness Instructing – Gym Based qualification before joining this course.

You’ll quickly learn that the client is more interested in what you can do for them …than how awesome your own physique looks.

NB Exceptions can be made for experienced, qualified fitness professionals who have current qualifications in a different subject i.e. Level 2 Fitness Instructing – Exercise to Music/Water based/ Kids Fitness or Level 3 Mat Pilates qualification. A minimum of one extra weekend will be dedicated to achieving  the Units relevant to Level 2  Gym Instruction at a cost to be agreed.  For more information please email with the subject ‘Combined L2-L3 PT Qualification’

  • Lothian bus services right to the door
  • Musselburgh Train Station is on the campus …only 6 mins train ride from Waverley station
  • Starbucks coffee shop on site
  • Maggie’s Café/Bar on site serving snacks, breakfast, lunch & dinners
