As of Jan 2023 we have seen over 40 people come through our PT Academy at Fierce since we started running it in early 2022.
The 10 week course ends in a CIMSPA approved Personal Training Level 3 qualification and has attracted people who want to learn more for their own training, and those who want to change or start a career in Personal Training or generally in the Fitness Industry.
The course is great as it is a mixture of home learning and in person training, meaning those on the course come into the gym for 4 hours a week for some classroom tuition and gym floor instruction, we feel this increases the quality of the course we provide and ultimately the candidates that complete it as many PT courses are simply online with no practical experience or face to face tuition.
The course has been a success for Fierce in a number of ways, not only adding another service and diversifying us from other gyms but we have gained 2 excellent members of staff as a result of them completing the course.
These team members are now Full time Fierce Fitness Instructors taking classes, helping others meet their fitness goals as well as understanding their own training requirements better.
We also have a current team member who was part of the reception team now completing the course in order for him to progress his career in the gym.
This year we hope to run another 2-3 of these courses and maybe get some more new Fierce team members.
