Working in London’s Fitness Industry
It is only natural to consider employment opportunities within the fitness industry upon completion of your qualification. The fitness industry has grown for its tenth consecutive year in 2011 and is currently valued at £3.8 Billion. There are approximately 9,218 job opportunities available each year in the UK fitness industry so employment opportunities are very high but the key is in understanding the best progression routes and also the key attributes employers are looking for within a prospective employee.

We produce well educated, well equipped and motivated trainers who can achieve great things in the industry if they have the drive and passion to do so.
You may have heard other training providers make claims of guaranteed interviews upon completion of a course and this is a marketing tool utilised by many providers in the UK. The truth is that getting an interview in the fitness industry is a relatively easy process. The difficult part is getting the job.
