Becoming a personal trainer

Hi

as above , ive been thinking about it for a while now and looked in to a few thinsg about it.

Ive come accross....ymca , futurefit & premier global

Out of the three i would prefer to do the ymca , it is £2995 (15 week)

My question is , is there anyway i can do it or get it cheaper? lol i could get the money together for it but its alot of money and would prefer it cheaper but im not going to do the course with any dodgy looking compaines.

Thanks in advance

    Yes it is possible to get it cheaper.

    We do the YMCA CYQ level 2 gym instructor as a 10 week distance learning course for £575.00, after which you can do the YMCA Level 3 advanced gym instructor as another 10 week distance learning course for another £575.00.

    These courses are usually £700 to £900 each from other providers.

    See http://www.hamiltonstraining.co.uk for more details.

    Any questions please feel free to PM me.

    You could also get a job at a gym that didnt require qualifications and they would pay to send you on courses.
