Testimonial
Over the years we have had a lot of fantastic Premier Global NASM graduates join our teams across the UK who enjoy successful careers as Personal Trainers. We also have the added comfort of knowing, that when our PT’s are completing further education CPD courses with PGNASM they are getting quality, practical application skills that are improving them as a PT.
– Aaron McCulloch, Managing Director, Your Personal Training
Premier Global has been my course provider throughout my career and I would not choose otherwise!

The courses are flexible, thorough and prepare you for the industry. With a fantastic network of tutors, you always feel supported not only during your course, but far beyond that. Continued professional development is key and Premier always keep up with the latest information and knowledge with a huge variety of qualifications.

All in all my experience with Premier is a great one and I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to start or continue their career!
– Bessy Naidu, Personal Trainer, Self-Employed
I am absolutely loving my Level 3 Personal Training course with Premier Global NASM, I also completed my Level 2 Gym instructing course with this provider. Distance learning fits perfectly with my lifestyle. The format of the live online lectures are brilliant and very intuitive (these are saved and can be watched back). The tutors deliver the lecture in an easy-to-understand manner, with a good steady pace. There are opportunities to ask questions and the tutors ensure no student is left behind. I look forward to my lectures.
