About the teacher (Dan Jackson) 

I have been training clients for over 17 years, I have been managing and running fitness departments for over 11 years, I have been teaching and certifying personal trainers for over 9 years.  When I teach this course I teach it from practical experience.  I teach it a way that you can walk out of the course and apply what you have learnt, at the same time I open your mind up to explore this industry and what you can do with it and learn from it. 

About the course

This course is designed to lay the groundwork to become a great personal trainer.  Please keep in mind that this is a 25hr course so don't expect to walk out knowing everything you need to know. You will, however, gain a better understanding of what personal training is all about and how to train clients with basic needs. You can never learn enough in this industry so don't plan on stopping after this course. In fact, you should plan your next course as soon as you are finished with this one,  I will give you some direction, so don't worry about the next steps.  Everyone comes in with a different backgrounds and different experiences so it is hard for me to say where you will be at the end of the course but all should be able to assess, program and train a basic/beginner client.
