I did it two years ago, load of Pi$$ mate, if you konw good form technique and use general common sense you'll fly past it.

There was a bit of paper work which became reptitive, mainly beause it was so simple.

yes mate done level 2 and 3, both basic don't let the theory side get on top of you, basic, muscle, bone , heart and body stuff, the exam is multiple choice with a pass rate of 85% , and the gym based stuff is very easy if you have got some training under your belt ...top tip there are some mock exams on line , i think i studied 3 i found and the exams i took ,most of the questions are combined on the 3. ...no worries :thumb:

Reading up on the bones, muscles, heart and lungs would probably help you the most mate. If you have a good grasp of exercises and technique youll be fine. Nothing too tricky at all. The practical exam was instructing a client through a workout that includes warm up, main component and cool down. It will include C.V and weights exercises. Nothing hard, but being followed around a gym for an hour by 2 examiners listening for mistakes wasnt fun. If your prepared for it though, youll be fine mate. :)

I did my lv2 fitness intructor, lv2 circut training and lv3 PT diploma back to back. Cost £850 i think for it all as i got it on half price offer. That included my first aid certificate as well.

Level two is pants tbh, good stepping stone but you learn sweet f a about anything really. I'm currently doing my advanced personal trainer course through premier top notch and probably the best training provider in the country for fitness qualifications. Was three and a half grand though.
