Personal Trainer Courses Manchester – Our Primary Qualifications Explained

Level 2 Fitness Instructing Qualification – This qualification is aimed at those who have no exercise or fitness based qualification but want to start a career within fitness. This qualification would allow you to gain employment at a fitness centre, gym or possibly as a group exercise instructor (along with specific CPD courses). The program is delivered over 4 days and has an additional assessment day a week later. During this qualification you will learn how to design safe and effective gym programs for clients based on their goals.

This course is ideal for anyone who aspires to become a personal trainer, and indeed many of our candidates go on to achieve just that after completing this qualification.

Level 3 Personal Trainer – This is one of our most popular qualifications. However please be mindful that the pre-requisite to this course is the Level 2 Fitness Instructing Qualification outlined above. Once you complete this course you will then be able to work 1-2-1 with clients, deliver group exercise sessions, provide nutritional guidance and support as well as work self personal trainer coursesemployed. During the training you will develop an understanding in advanced programming for cardiovascular training methods, resistance training methods and also how structured nutrition can support the client’s performance as well as reach their body composition orientated goals.

Level 3 Diploma in Sports Massage – This is another one of our more popular qualifications. The tutor for this course is highly experienced and has worked for the NHS, Private Clinics as well as with performance orientated professional Athletes and teams. As part of this diploma, you will learn how to assess client’s postures, injuries and muscular imbalances. You will also learn various treatment techniques including pre event massage, intra event therapy and also post event therapy. Due to the tutor’s experience there is also a lot of emphasis on injury rehabilitation as well as pre-hab – This  is ideal for anyone wanting to start a new career or for current Personal Trainers / Coaches who want to develop an additional income.

Education Courses – As well as the delivery of fitness, nutrition and leisure management based qualifications, FLM Training also delivers the Education and Training as well as the Assessor qualification. These courses are ideal for any current fitness professional who is looking to take the next step in their PT career and become a Tutor or Assessor within their chosen field. Both qualifications are delivered with a mixture of theory (classroom based) and practical elements with learners who we provide. This career path is extremely rewarding and we highly recommend it to any experienced fitness professional.


As the Platinum Standard of Fitness Education we have received some outstanding testimonials over the years. Below is a recent testimonial we received from a past customer who is an experienced fitness professional and blogger. He recently completed his Exercise Referral, Personal Trainer Courses and is now working towards his Leisure Management qualification with us…

“Seldom do I feel compelled to write a review after receiving a service, but after my multiple experiences with FLM Training, I cannot help but feel implored to share my experience.

FLM Training was recommended to me by friend whose girlfriend had completed her Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing with them. And yet, despite a glowing review from my friend, I was initially somewhat skeptical. Indeed, there are a plethora of fitness certification providers on the market, and FLM were significantly cheaper than all of them – most notably YMCAfit; you see, pursuing fitness qualifications is a huge investment – both financially and career-wise – so I couldn’t help but feel apprehensive about: a) whether the price was a reflection of the quality; and b) whether my qualifications with FLM would be industry recognized. Despite these reservations, I continued to persevere, and booked on to the Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing.

After recently graduating from university, the thought of sitting in a dark, humid classroom was, quite frankly, as appealing as taking the girlfriend to watch Fifty Shades of Grey on premier night – bleak! But, to my surprise, the facilities were fit for purpose and any time spent in the classroom was made easier by having an engaging, accommodating and enthusiastic tutor, who evidently knew his stuff. In fact, I was so satisfied with my first experience with FLM that, after passing my Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing, I immediately booked on to their Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, which I completed just last week.

Note: If you’re lucky enough to get Richard as your tutor, then you’re genuinely in for a dynamic and insightful experience. I always considered myself an expert on all things nutrition, but after spending an hour with Richard, you’ll leave the building feeling like there’s so much more left to read and discover. So: if you have been toying with the idea of becoming a fitness professional, then I genuinely recommend that you consider FLM Training as the avenue to take. This is not a sales pitch, just a genuine – albeit discursive – account from a satisfied customer.

To the guys at FLM Training: I’ll see you next week for the Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral!”

Although we have countless happy customers to tell you about, here is another testimonial from someone who was aspiring to become a PT.
