As a qualified personal trainer you can work within a gym, work outdoors or even set up your own business.  An ever growing industry, now 1 in 7 people within the UK are a member of a gym, creating a huge demand for high quality personal trainers.

The national average for personal training is £40 per hour so you can earn a great income whether you are looking to change career completely, or earn an additional income doing something you love.

How do you start?
