Who are the PT Academy


PT Academy was founded in 2009 based upon our perception of what we believed the industry needed at the time. We introduced a nationwide "mentor" based system where learners would be taught and mentored by active personal trainers and fitness professionals.  

9 years on and having partnered with Pure Gym - Personal Trainer Academy is now the largest and fastest growing fitness education company in the UK. Recognised as the UK's leading fitness and personal training course providers, we have the largest number of assessment centres and venues than any other UK training provider. We are the first education company to use active trainers as mentors, assessors and tutors of our courses.

We are committed to raising standards throughout the health and fitness industry by innovating learning methods, competitive prices and high quality graduates.
