About us

Founded in 2009 by Adam Kiani, PT Academy was, and still is, the only fitness education company to use active personal trainers as part of its expert delivery team. 

From the beginning, our philosophy has always been that our students learn best from qualified personal trainers. Personal trainers know exactly what it takes to grow a successful personal training business as they’ve done it themselves. 

This firm belief has resulted in the development of our flagship learning method, the Flexi-Learner programme, where students are assigned an active personal trainer in their local region who guides them through their Level 2 and 3 personal trainer qualifications. 

The success of the Flexi-Learner method has meant that in just a few years our team has expanded. We now have over 200 active trainers across the UK and the highest number of assessment centres, making PT Academy the largest fitness education provider in the UK.

More recently, PT Academy has partnered with PureGym, the UK's largest fitness operator. This partnership means that PureGym trainers also have the opportunity to develop the next generation of personal trainers.

PT Academy is committed to giving people of all backgrounds the opportunity to  become a qualified personal trainer through our competitive pricing and innovative learning methods. In doing this we’re producing high-quality graduates for the health and fitness industry.

Our qualifications are OFQUAL regulated and certificated by NCFE, Focus Awards, 1st4Sport and VTCT awarding organisations. This ensures full recognition from employers, the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and CIMSPA.
