Learning Outcomes

Learning outcomes of our level 3 personal trainer courses at T2 Fitness Education

The fitness industry is fast-paced and ever changing. Becoming a Personal Trainer is more than knowing your way around a gym floor. To help your clients reach their goals – and build yourself a sustainable income – it’s about equipping yourself with greater knowledge of anatomy, fitness and nutrition… along with developing a host of inter-personal and business skills to become an exceptional trainer for years to come. Here’s what you can expect to learn from our course:

Advanced Physiology & Anatomy

This course centres on anatomy and physiology to give you a firm understanding of the many body systems, and how they respond to exercise.

Principles of Nutrition

There are many schools of thought about exercise vs diet, as well as fuelling for enhanced physical activity. On this course, we’ll expand your knowledge of nutrition and how it applies to various physical activity programmes for a wide range of clients.

Interpersonal & Personal Training Delivery Skills

We cover how to establish long term behaviour change and develop a strong client rapport through motivation, SMART goal setting and engaging training sessions. 


You’ll build on your Level 2 knowledge and develop a greater understanding of exercise programmes. You’ll learn how to design sessions that meet the goals of a wide range of client demographics, in a wide range of settings – from gym floors to home studios to outside training.

Business Skills

Getting qualified is your first step. Building a sustainable income is what keeps working as a PT for years to come. We cover pricing, marketing, rental agreements, issues and industry trends facing Personal Trainers so that you’re industry ready to make your new career a success.

Course Structure

How you'll learn with T2 Fitness Education

We aim to meet the needs of our students and offer many different ways to study to suit your personal circumstances. For our in-person courses, you will attend our training centre at Blunsdon Fitness. This is our head quarters where we deliver all of our personal trainer courses in Swindon.  Conveniently located just off the A419, with great links to the M4 and M5, it offers a state of the art gym and fitness centre to give you the very best start to your studies and fitness career. 

Full Time

Our most popular study option is our intensive course.  As soon as you enrol, you will gain access to e-learning to begin your pre-course study. You will then attend five days delivered from Monday to Friday at T2HQ. This blend of digital and practical learning prepares you for the world of fitness today. 

We limit our groups to no more than 14 people meaning that you get an intense learning experience. With real-time feedback from our expert tutors, your days will be split between studying theory in classrooms before applying what you’ve learnt on the gym floor. The final day of your course is a live practical assessment where you will find out immediately whether you’ve passed your qualification.

Part Time

With the same blend of prior study before attending a live course, this option spreads your contact days over weekends, making it suitable for balancing any weekday commitments you may have. As with the full-time option, the final day of your course is a live practical assessment where you will find out immediately whether you’ve passed your qualification.

Online Study

If study entirely at your own pace in your own time is a better solution for you, take a look at our online course. While you may be distance learning, you’re not doing so alone. All students as assigned a dedicated expert tutor who provides support by email or phone throughout their course.


If the choices above aren’t quite the perfect fit, we can find a solution that suits you. We have provided Blended Online courses, where your distance learning is supplemented with live webinars, the chance to virtually work with other students or even joining a Training Centre course for a final assessment day. We’re here to make our courses work for you. If you’re looking for a bespoke study option, please email contact us.

How You’ll Be Assessed

How you'll be assessed on our fitness course

Units are assessed by worksheets. To complete worksheets, you will research training concepts relating to each unit and submit your findings. This approach, rather than multiple choice questionnaires, provides you with taste of what working in the fitness industry is truly like. The final unit is a practical assessment that is assessor lead.

Whether you choose to study face-to-face at our training centre or whether you choose to study online, you will be supported by T2’s tutors through your studies and assessments.
