Simon was most helpful on a number of occasions. Always answered the phone or email promptly. A great help. First class service. They had the best package that I could afford. I am 49 years old and have been involved in the fitness industry for a number of years, I started as a lifeguard in my local council run pool when I was in my early 20′s and went on to become a gym instructor, triathlon coach and swimming teacher. I decided to upgrade my qualifications as I have been doing other things for the last ten years. I found the course stimulating, although at first a little daunting because of the in depth information. I soon got into studying again and was most impressed with the course content, the support of my tutor through distance learning and the depth of knowledge I had gained at the end of the course. I am currently continuing with my studies and hope to complete the AIQ level 3 personal training qualification soon. I would certainly recommend the course to others who are already working and cannot afford the time or money to attend training in person.

It has taken me a little longer than expected as I was home studying but the course material and support i received from Be a better you was fantastic. I was helped on each step of my course was felt that I continually had the support of the team. I have now finished my level 3 PT and feel ready to start a new career in the fitness industry.
