With the start of our next Fitness Instructing and Personal Training (PT) courses coming up in August and September this year, we thought we’d give everyone the chance to find out more about just how great our training is by introducing you to some of our current cohort of aspiring fitness professionals. Guys, it’s over to you!

I really couldn’t recommend taking this PT course more, not only because you have such a laugh with all the staff members who are here to motivate you as well as listen to your needs, but because the learning outcomes for me have been second to none. I feel as if I’m gaining so much more knowledge and confidence in taking this course. The thing I really like about studying with Superstars at Big G’s is that they make great use of practical teaching and demonstration, even when explaining the theory. This is so important for me as I’m a really visual learner. Whatever the teaching method, there is always an opportunity to participate, and it’s through this interaction that I can really grasp all aspects of what we are learning each week. Another concept I love is that not only are we training to become Personal Trainers, but the staff go out of their way to give you so much real life information about how to actually set up your own business once you’re qualified – they’ve done it themselves, after all. There are so many places offering this qualification out there at the moment, but for me, I definitely recommend learning, training and developing with Superstars Coaching at Big G’s Gym.

This course has been great for me. Gordi ‘Big G’ Watson was my PT when I was training to lose weight and tone my body, and since going through that process myself, I’d wanted to continue to learn new techniques and to develop knowledge around things like nutrition, so that I could continue to get even better results for myself. That was my initial reason for signing up to this course, but as I’ve worked through everything each week with the staff and other students, it’s really inspired and motivated me towards actually wanting to follow Personal Training as a career and ‘give back’ what I’ve learnt to other people who want to take steps on the journey towards getting themselves in better shape. The course through Superstars at Big G’s has been great from the first day. We learn a huge range of different exercises for different individuals and groups, including warm ups and cool downs as well as the workouts in between. This in itself has given me a new lease of life with training. The staff also give us a load of detailed information about things like nutrition, which many people don’t realise is so important within Personal Training. Over-all, this course is well worth the money, as the staff go above and beyond to help give you the full information to allow you to unlock your full potential. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to take part in this course, and the added bonus of being able to use all the facilities at Big G’s Gym during the run of the qualification means you can’t go wrong.
Chloe Vose, Bolton
My name’s Chloe and I’m presently a PT learner on the course here at Big G’s through Superstars Coaching. The course delivered here is amazing. It’s highly practical, and really in-depth on the theoretical side. The course has allowed me to expand my anatomical and physiological knowledge of the body and taught me how to apply and adapt this into practice for myself and any potential clients I may have. The staff are second to none and the breadth of knowledge and experience they share with you adds so much to what a standard course elsewhere would offer. Superstars at Big G’s offers a fun and friendly environment, yet the course is extremely challenging and stimulating. The staff really encourage you to think about applying and progressing into having a particular scope of practice within your training, and I hope to work within the dance and body conditioning specialism upon completing this course. I would definitely recommend
anyone interested in Personal Training to get on board with Superstars and just do it!
At Superstars, these courses in Fitness Instructing and Personal Training are way more than a qualification – they’re an insight into the world of becoming an actual PT in a real working environment. It’s a USP not to be overlooked when examining your choices!
