The fact they want your house for guarantee on £2995 just says it all to me.


Yes i agree mate. will have a look into the other possiblities.


I know its easy to be tempted by it , but dont lol....you will regret it

I know you want something quick but at the end of the day fitness knowledge is not something you want to rush.

Maybe try and get a job in a gym????? and you can study at the same time as that


It is easy to get tempted because of the jobs market at the moment, but your right the gym job and studying at the same same time seems the beat option.
 
Cheers for your imput guys.

I don't know anything about fitness training, but it sounds a lot like some IT training companies who will train you in the latest and greatest from a standing start (i.e. you have no IT experience), and make hughe promises of 50 grand starting salaries and the like.

No one in any company I know would employ one of these 'trained' people.  Without knowing the industry view of their fitness courses, and the likelihood of geting a job, it does sound very similar.  They aren't doing you a favour, they are doing it for themselves.


Yes mate i agree there popping up all over the place, plumbing, fitness, IT.


Driving instructors....
 
When you can make more out of running a training company than doing the trade, you know something's up lol.  Having said that there are legitimate companies out there, but they don't need to make wild claims to justify themselves, they have reputations within professions that they deliver worthwhile and quality training.

You are unlikely to get a job in a gym without at least the Level 2 course.

It just so happens that we deliver the Level 2 YMCA CYQ course by distance learning and four practical attendance days over weekends, for just £575. Have a look around at other providers, but you shouldn't be paying much more than that price.

I just phoned

it is

£2995 upfront, or £135 a month for 3 years if you are a house owner or you can have someone guarantee you that owns a house.


I just phoned out of curiosity quoted me. £2995 if paid before start date, £3495 if you didn't. Over 3 years £138 a month also £200 registration fee to pay.
 
ERRR NO THANKS . On your bike

I'd say grab it, hopefully you won't then be charged a registration fee and extra for course materials.

^^^^^^

I have looked in to the one above , it is worth it and its a YMCA qual so you cant go wrong. It is home based which is abit of a bonus if you live to far from the centres.

Hi,

Just to say I completed the training room course early june this year and they sorted me out a job in Esporta within 2 weeks,

I learnt a hell of a lot during the course and I consider my self pretty knowledgable training wise, as I have been training for several years and am looking to compete in my first comp later in the year.

Many of my collegues have completed corses from varios providers and few have had the positive experience that I had.
Take it from someone who has actually completed the course; if your looking to get into the industry there is little better way than through these guys.

I talked to a fella called Matt he seemed to know what he was on about I suggest giving them a call yourself


Truth is seldom found in the opinion of others.

  of course you have mate , take your false bulls@hit advertising elsewhere

I did ring them myself and they told me different information to someone else that rung of here. They also told me info that was different to the web information. Not a good start when your asking people to use there house as a garauntee.
 
No offense mate but you've just joined.  It doesn't really inspire confidence.

Look if you've had a positive experience with this company then tell us, why was it better than your other collegues training providers, give us details. Simple dont come on and make comments like the one above because you just make yourself look like an idiot. Give us evidence to back up your claim.
 
People can only go on the information in front of them, It might be good training provider but its the problem with costs and the conflicting information been given out on the website and the phone that's the issue for me. None of these points you've address in your your two posts.
 
Your entitled to your opinion, but i myself would rather go on fact and the fact is the only winner in this venture is the training room.
 
What happens 6 months after i've qualified and i still haven't got a job, i've still got to pay the £138 a month or i loose my house. why should i have all the risk. I dont think so pal not on them terms. Like i said only one winner.

Alright guys, been watchin this one with much interest as i was just about to apply to get on the Training room course!

I've checked out the YMCA course which to me looks pretty similar in the qualifications they offer, but the one major thing i can see is that the training room offer you a 6 week course in 6 weeks, where as the the YMCA offer a 6 week course in 12 weeks by doing it on a week on week off basis!

Both the training room and the YMCA are registerd with REPs so i cant see why one should be avoided and one shouldn't!

they do there courses in a gym local to me so im goin to head down tomorrow and have a word with the staff see if they rate them or not!

If any one has done the PT course with the training room or the YMCA i would love to hear of your experiences!
