    dip in PT and sports massage. yes its expensive, but u can get a career development loan which helps pay it then u pay it back once you start working or sumthing like that!

    its a lot of money but i recommend it because most people will go for the YMCAfit qualification, which is generally only level 2. going with premier takes you to level 3, so you have an advantage overall

    bare in mind its not just get the qualification and thats it. u have to seel yourself to nearly every person in the gym- your pretty much self employed and the first while will be so hard because everyone will have clients and you will just be helping the people who have no idea what to do.
