WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY ABOUT US?
What make our
personal training course different
Most personal trainers take a qualification that they hope will lead to a successful and rewarding career in the fitness industry. Unfortunately, many certification programs are based heavily on classroom and theory-based learning that overlooks what it takes to succeed as a personal trainer. This leads to trainers and coaches who are uncertain how to get results for their clients.
At Elite, we believe in doing things; differently, our courses mean that you get more than just a piece of paper.
Education, not just certification
Practical hands-on learning
Our courses are delivered in a LIVE gym, NOT a lecture hall, so you get real-world “hands-on” education that gets results.

PREVIOUS STUDENTS CLASSES
Yes, you will have the knowledge to work within the industry and also be able to get insurance allowing you to train individuals.
We currently work with Flyefit, Ben Dunne, Energie Fitness and countless boutique gyms to provide staff.
Our courses have a great reputation in the Irish fitness industry and we regularly get calls from gym owners about the high quality of the professionals we train here. The standard of our facilities, courses and tutors means you are in a perfect position to be employed by any gym or fitness centre.
Maybe a better question to ask here would be what kind of trainer do you want to be?
Do you just want to hang a cert on your wall so you can call yourself a PT on Facebook?
If so, you can gain a cheap online cert from numerous places and save yourself a tonne of effort and money.
However, if you want certainty in your ability to actually do what it says on there?
Then you’re going to need more than a piece of paper with your name on it. You’re going to need real hands-on experience and hours of coaching immersion. I.e. actually coaching in a live gym with real people under the eyes of a master coach.
That is the only way to create the learning opportunity to grow into the trainer or coach you want to become. This will make investments of energy, time and money for you to gain.
If that’s what you want. You’ve come to the right place. The Elite Coaching Certification surpasses anything on the market today because the education is taken directly from a client tested and results proven facility with a decade of experience.
Yes, you will be fully qualified. On the Elite Coaching Certificate you will also sit a sales class on how to set up your own business.

If you have the drive to build your own buisness, then Elite is the place for you to start off your career.

Elite Academy courses are recognized in the EU, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and UAE. REPS Ireland is aligned to the European Qualification Framework and REPS Ireland is a part of the ICREPS organisation that connects exercise professional registers in UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and UAE.
The certificates for our short continuing education courses have CPD points assigned to them, and as such, you can also register them on the REPs website.
If you travel to work in another country, you can apply to register in the REPs organisation of that country by enquiring to REPs Ireland on firstname.lastname@example.org. They will guide you through a transfer to another country’s register.
Continuous Professional Development (CPD) refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It’s a record of what you experience, learn and then apply. The term is generally used to mean a physical folder or portfolio documenting your development as a professional and is the means by which people maintain their knowledge and skills related to their professional lives.
The CPD accreditation on our courses show that you have continued with a line of study beyond your initial study to meet the guidelines outlined by a certain body.
Elite Coaching certification is delivered in a blended learning style
Meaning you can gain access to the material once you’re application has been approved and begin your learning journey right away.

No previous experience is required. However, physical fitness is required, and training experience will be beneficial. We expect students to fully complete all practical sessions and be ready to go.
All of our courses require physical exertion and individual participation is essential. Therefore a degree of physical fitness is necessary. There is also an element of communication (discussing, presenting, reading and writing) involved, and candidates should have basic skills in communication.
If you fail a theory exam you can repeat it 1-2 times depending on the module. A fee of €50 applies. If you fail all attempts you will need to resit the whole module again on the next available course. This must be done within 2 months
If you fail a practical exam you can repeat it twice. A fee of €150 applies.
All repeat exams need to be scheduled with the Course Coordinator. Payment must be made before the repeat exam date.
We would advise that all learners are dressed in exercise clothing for the duration of the course i.e. loose, comfortable clothing for all short practical based courses. When it comes to exercises, students should be dressed in appropriate clean clothing, training gear, shorts and t-shirts.
A pen/pencil and notebook. Your digital manual will be supplied online once you sign up. Some people complain they do not know how to structure classes after their training has been delivered and these people are the same ones who come without pen or notebook and don’t take notes.
There will be a lot of material covered on courses that will require complete concentration and effort to gain the most from the course, so you will need to take plenty of notes to look back on!
Surgical/hockey tape (only for Kettlebell Courses): This is to protect your hands from minor tears or abrasions. This can be bought in any chemist for a few euros so please purchase and bring this small but very useful piece of equipment. It will save your hands after two days of lifting.
