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.  

10 years on and having partnered with several health club chains - 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. Our innovative approach led to a prestigious award earlier this year from the Institute of Directors - an independent organisation with a royal chart

Partnered With Major Health Club Chains



As we have grown, so have our partnerships. We are pleased to be partnered with most major health club chains in the UK.

This means there are literally thousands of potential sites for our graduates to work. We are also not limited to one gym chain allowing our graduates to choose a gym and location that suits them. 

We are also partnered with the UKs largest and oldest established Fitness Jobsite providing VIP access to over 25,000 active jobs in the UK.

It really has never been a better time to become a fitness professional in the UK
