Joining The Institute for my course was definitely a great choice for me. Friendly, professional and positive service throughout. The course materials are excellent and the tutors are approachable and very knowledgeable. They have offered support where required and encouragement where needed to progress my learning and successfully complete my course. I would highly recommend The Institute to anyone looking to start or further their career in the fitness industry.
Patrick Erkelens, L2 Fitness Instructor

I've just completed my Level 2 gym instructor course with The Institute and would recommend to anyone wanting to become an instructor or even just wanting to further your knowledge for your own training.

The course is broke down into 5 easy to follow modules, 4 theory that you do in class and at home and 1 practical that you do in the gym. The trainers are so knowledgeable, helpful and very patient. So if your thinking about it I'd definitely say give it a go

Jennifer Kenny, L2 Gym Instructor
Before taking part in the course I was slightly anxious about learning a completely new topic which I only had basic knowledge of from going to the gym. Those nerves were very quickly put at ease. The course was broken down in a way that was fun & easy to learn and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The sessions were presented in both written and practical form. I have the utmost respect for all of the instructors at Waites Gym being able to retain the knowledge they do & give expert advice helping me do my workouts safely and reach my goals.
