Course Cost. The Personal Trainer Academy is the most competitive priced course provider in the UK. We often get asked why the same courses we offer are more expensive than than every other training provider and our answer is simple - we priced our courses to ensure you get an affordable course delivered by high quality tutors whilst stripping out costs such as admin fees, resit fees, interest and small print charges and in the process receive exactly the same course and certificate as you would from other training providers.

When you do something and others follow suit – it means you must be doing something right.
