What past students are saying

I've recently completed the Level 2 Gym instructor course with Fitnesscoursesmalta.com and have been completely satisfied with the standard of training and assessment given. Both tutors, namely Gillian and Celine have been simply outstanding throughout the entire course. The manuals and learning material were of high quality. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone who would like to pursue a career in the fitness industry!

Christopher Calleja

Gillian and Celine - Professional approach, always supportive and ready to help you out during your studies. Looking forward to sit for the Personal Training course in February next year. Great experience!! 

Duncan Abdilla

The tutors are so helpful and supportive that they felt more like friends by the end of the course! There is a large amount of information to get through but the tutors do a great job of teaching it efficiently in a short period of time. There was a good mixture of both theory and practical work. After my experience I highly recommend them as a company to complete any fitness qualifications.

We are now accepting applications for the next batch of courses which will commence on the 11th February 2020 (Level 2) and 13th February 2020 (Level3)

We offer courses in the following: Level 2 Aerobic instructor course/exercise to music, Level 2 Gym instructor course and Level 3 personal trainer course. If this is your first course in fitness, you will have to start by sitting one of the level 2 courses, either in gym instruction or aerobic instruction before sitting for the personal trainer course which is a level 3 course.

Therefore, unless you hold a recognised certification in a level 2 course, you will have to acquire this before applying for the level 3 in personal training. No pre-requisite is required to sit the level 2 courses, but experience in the gym or attending fitness classes will benefit all students. 

All courses run for approximately 16 weeks. 

All theory sessions will be held The Mariott Hotel and Spa, St. Julian's on the following days :

Gym & Exercise to Music Level 2 – every Tuesday from 17:00 till 20:00 

Personal training level 3 – every Thursday from 17:00 till 20:00 

Practical sessions will be held at at FITWAY by Celine at The Marriott Hotel and Spa, St Julian’s on the following days: 

Gym practical level 2 – every other Saturday from 15:00 till 17:00 

Exercise To Music practical level 2 – every Saturday - from 10.30 till 13.30 

Personal training level 3 every other Saturday from 15:00 till 17:00

For further info please contact us on info@fitnesscoursesmalta.com or call 99474638 or 99427625.

As part of your assessment you will need to complete a LAP (Learner achievement portfolio) which consists of researching and answering a number of questions for each of the units covered on the course. You will also need to sit a practical assessment. Unlike other courses, we offer extensive practical sessions as part of the course and therefore, although you are required to practice on your own, the course does not oblige you to officially spend a stipulated number of hours actually working in a gym. If you have the opportunity to do this, it would be beneficial for you, but you will be taught proper technique on all gym equipment during the practical sessions of the course. You will also be required to prepare a gym session for a particular participant and therefore you will need to practice with this participant prior to your practical examination. This will apply if you are sitting for the gym course. The course verifier will be in Malta some time in June or July to oversee the smooth running of the practical assessments and to represent the awarding body. All our courses lead to certification and are recognised internationally. Successful students are also eligible to apply to have their name on eREPs (register of exercise professionals) Which is a European register of qualified professionals in the fitness field. The exercise to music course will qualify you to teach fitness classes and the gym instructor course, to work in a gym as a qualified gym instructor. Should you wish to apply for either of these courses, you may download the application form from this site and contact us via e-mail for prices and payment options. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us or checkout our web page or our Facebook page.
