Level 3 Personal Trainer Women Specialist (RQF)

Personal Training can be a competitive career path, and it can be difficult to separate yourself from other trainers. The best way to do this is by finding a niche, or specialism, something that none of the other trainers are offering. And that's exactly what you get with this course package!

This is your chance to qualify as a Level 3 Personal Trainer whilst also learning a specialist skillset that will help you coach women during the different stages of their lives.

As well as qualifying as an industry-ready PT, you will also qualify as a Prenatal and Postnatal Coach and menopause expert. 

Overview

This Level 3 Personal Trainer Women Specialist Course includes a Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training, a Level 3 Award in Supporting Pre and Postnatal Clients with Exercise & Nutrition, and a specialist LEAP Academy designed 'Exercise and Training Through Menopause' course.

There is a huge demand in the fitness industry for trainers who have the knowledge to coach women through pregnancy and menopause, but there are only a small number of PTs who understand the physiological and psychological changes which occur and may impact exercise.

Gaining these qualifications will set you apart from other PTs in the industry and enable you to charge a higher hourly rate for your services.
Our team of elite fitness professionals will guide you through your courses, sharing their advice for success in the industry, and empowering you with the fundamental knowledge you need to be a top-quality PT.
