What I would highlight: The course was very good. People had recommended me to YMCAfit and I wasn't disappointed. The tutor was excellent. The facilities were ok with the only issue being driving away from the venue on a Saturday, but outside of that, I was impressed and have since done further courses.

We are proud of each and every one of our students and are delighted to hear how wonderfully successful they have become. Below are a few quotes taken from some of our inspirational students success stories published on our website:

“I was working long hours but was still not fulfilled. I had toyed with the idea of re-training in something else, but wasn’t sure what direction to go in...I wanted to live a much healthier and more active lifestyle, to be qualified and make a decent living and be my own boss from such a lifestyle. I also wanted to further my knowledge of the human body – a subject in which I have always had a great fascination. YMCAfit has helped me achieve all this. My life has most definitely changed since doing the YMCA PT course: I feel much fitter and healthier and suddenly my future looks bright and full of possibilities.”
- David, Personal Trainer Award Graduate

“It was all work and office parties. I got married, then kids came along and I continued to pile on the weight. I also had dangerously high cholesterol. One day, I’d had enough. I made a decision to return to my fitter days and I have never turned back. My new career went from there. I was very scared about leaving a well-paid and secure job. But my own story made me determined to help others, and make money from something that has now become a passion.
- Gina, Level 2 ETM, Level 3 Nutrition and Weight Management, Level 2 in Kids Fitness (Street Dance) Graduate and Founder of UKGetActive
