The Transcend Level 3 Diploma in Gym Instructing and Personal Training is an Ofqual regulated vocational qualification that sits in sector subject area 8.1: Sport and Recreation. It is integral to a transformational suite of qualifications for fitness professionals. 

This is a combined qualification that enables learners to develop the competencies required to be employed in the dual role of gym instructor and personal trainer. 

Achievement of a gym instructor certificate is widely recognised as the required pre-requisite to the personal trainer qualification. Successful learners gain employment and experience in the gym whilst attending a programme that leads to the prestigious personal trainer certificate.  

In today’s climate many fitness enthusiasts wish to establish their own personal training business. Employment in the gym does not facilitate their business goals. This scenario is particularly relevant to military professionals, veterans, exercise science graduates and fitness devotees working in other sectors that wish to change career.  

The Transcend Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instructing and Transcend Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training remain relevant to learners that require a progressive employability pathway. However, to cater for a wider audience these have been merged to offer this combined qualification as an alternative. Programmes of training and assessment must align to both the gym instructor and personal trainer unit specifications, hours and assessment strategies to enable learners to achieve the combined qualification certificate.   

Successful learners will have the skills to establish their own personal training business. They will use tailored profiling and programming techniques to influence engagement AND fitness performance in line with each client’s unique needs. As sector ambassadors they will proactively support the national health agenda through transtheoretical behaviour change techniques to drive the sustainable wellbeing of clients.  

This combined qualification is developed with industry specialists Future Fit Training as the technical collaborators. It is endorsed by CIMSPA  as industry best practice qualification aligned the professional standards for gym Instructing and personal training.
