We looked at lots of options for Level 3, Personal Training qualifications but Vector were the only company we found that delivered face to face. The Vector team were really friendly and incredibly knowledgeable without being authoritarian. The environments we trained in ranged from boutique personal training studios in the city to suburban “big-box” gyms, providing a great insight into career paths for PTs. I am certain I will return to Vector for other, specialist training courses in the future. If you really want to learn, rather than just “tick the box”, I highly recommend Vector Training.

My experience with Vector Training has been phenomenal. Alex and Rich truly put their heart and soul into their work and they really care for their individual students. With Vector I had the chance to experience work in both a large commercial gym (Total Fitness) and a small personal training studio (FORM MCR), allowing me to gain a broader insight into the fitness industry. I would advice anyone looking to start their Personal Training career to considering getting face to face tutoring as opposed to solely doing it online. Without the in-person training days, I wouldn't have experience working on the gym floor, practicing with clients or even mastering my own training techniques!

Can't recommend these guys enough for quality of service. From the tutor Alex, to Rich and Vector as a company providing a personal, professional touch that has had the difficult task of working around the Coronavirus Pandemic initially working via Zoom calls before moving to the practical face-to-face sessions where the content has been brilliant in a variety of different gym settings. Its clear that Vector Training doesn't just tick boxes they go above and beyond to transition from the course to the practicalities of the workplace.

Great PT programme. The course is tough but rewarding. Definitely felt the added practical training days were worth it. We were able to cover a lot of content in the different gyms with the tutor.
