They exceeded my expectations and I write this review many years after the course I did with them. Wherever I go with my qualifications, the knowledge and experience I gained far out weighs the competition.

Several reasons really, first of all I had a brilliant tutor, I learnt a lot, gained news skills, and made new friends. Customer service throughout was brilliant and now I feel I'm fully prepared to make the step into personal training!
