Don’t just take our word for it, Jenny Patrickson, Active IQ Commercial Director says:

“Partnering with such a trusted and established training provider as Focus Training enables us to reach a wider audience with our qualifications and ensures consistent training across the sector, of the highest standard.”

Choosing your personal trainer course is a big decision.

With personal training courses becoming increasingly popular, choosing the right personal training course provider can be more challenging than choosing which course to do!
