Unlike many other sectors, the fitness industry seems to only go from strength to strength, and the need for qualified fitness professionals has never been higher. While Covid-19 has had an impact on the use of public gyms and fitness centres, the demand for online and 1-to-1 personal training solutions has skyrocketed. There has also been a drastic upwards shift in people becoming more interested in their general health than ever before, with physical fitness being a top priority. With demand being extremely high, many people are looking to enter the fitness industry, which hasn’t always been the easiest to access. Many establishments offering fitness courses do not have the necessary industry backing, and the ones that do are often too expensive for most of us.
Researching online courses and qualifications is an option, but where do you start and who do you trust out of the thousands of options? Enter New Skills Fitness Academy, who have seen the huge need for practical, trustworthy and accredited online fitness tuition and are ready to offer it to the world! New Skills Fitness Academy offers a full personal trainer qualification completely online, empowering you to start a personal training business or to enter the exciting and challenging world of fitness training. Their Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training combines the best of both worlds – Level 2 Gym Instructing and a Level 3 Personal Training qualification - which opens up every door needed to get started on your journey to becoming a fully accredited personal trainer.
New Skills Fitness Academy goes one step further than offering this fully accredited qualification though – they also offer all students the opportunity to increase their employability prospects even further with their health and fitness-oriented CPD training courses, which will allow students to specialise in specific areas and increase their knowledge and ability. These courses focus on important areas that all employers actively seek when recruiting, and also include a Business Management Skills course which will be the cherry on top of your list of qualifications, and will open even more doors in the industry.

What our students say about us...
Yet another well laid out course. This is my 3rd course so far with New Skills Academy.
More than likely will be back for another one soon. This course was enjoyable to do, and I learnt a lot and passed first try. My certificate will be up on the wall soon.
I found this course incredibly useful, as it provided me with practical knowledge which I can implement in my role as a Support Worker. The videos were clear and concise, and the downloadable worksheets reinforced what I had learned as I was able to put pen to paper. Overall, a fantastic course for a great price! I am looking forward to taking on my next one.
This course is a great way to brush up on my rusty excel skills, I recommend this course to anyone looking for something to do during lockdown, it's easy to use and talks you through each stage step by step. It has given me the confidence I need to further my career.
I am a doctor. This course is well organized, covering all areas of CBT. The videos and practical tips are very helpful. All the modules are arranged with good explanations and examples. Also each module consists of quick test and assignment which enables you to gain knowledge. Finally I would like to thank the New Skills Academy team.

Excellent course, well explained and easy to understand. The course can be done at my own pace and is available on various devices. The layout of the course was excellent and the notes options is very good. The content is perfect and well structured, making it easy to understand and follow. I will definitely be taking more courses in the future.
Omg im so excited, over joyed and all the good stuff that comes to mind! Wonderful experience doing lessons with New Skills Academy. I look foward to doing more courses with them. I hope this will encourage others to come on board and refresh your minds or to learn something new, it's a win win situation. I want to thank New Skills Academy so much for making this as simple as possible for me.
I took up this course initially to help me with my own dog, but found that as I worked through the material I actually started thinking that this could be something that I could use to make a second income. From start to finish I found the course engaging and interesting. I am now doing another dog related course and am experiencing the same level of enjoyment. I would recommend New Skills Academy without hesitation.
This is a great course for any level of knowledge. Very easy to navigate, great practical tasks and explanations are very clear. You can revise any module with no problem. The test wasn’t too hard if you completed every module. It may be handy to make some notes before you start. Overall I'm very happy with my choice. Thank you New skills for my New skills :)
