Now that the practical course at our Estepona campus is complete, we’d like to share with you the success of our first course at Las Mesas gym.
In total we qualified 16 different fitness professionals in a variety of certifications.
2 students are now qualified Level 2 Fitness Instructors, 10 completed a variety of different Level 3 PT Diploma courses; and 4 students from Gibraltar chose EPTI to up skill and continue their professional development by gaining their Level 2 Suspended Movement Training certificate.

Time has flown so quickly since our last newsletter back in December 2016 and so much has happened here at EPTI since then!
Graduate PT Directory
The EPTI Graduate directory is now live and if you have not added your profile, you can do so, creating one by clicking here.
If we created a profile for you and you wish to update it, you’ll need to replace the one that we made for you.
In the last newsletter, we spoke about the diversity of interest in our graduates from companies in and out of the fitness industry, from fitness chains in the United Arab Emirates, to a TV production company in the UK… [Read more…]
Time has flown so quickly since our last newsletter to you back in July.
A look back at 2016
With most of our students and graduates now in the middle of winter (but some are enjoying the middle of summer in far-off destinations!), lets take a look back at the best bits of 2016….
A big positive for us has been the continued growth of the EPTI brand of Personal Training. All four practical courses that were originally planned at the beginning of the year sold out months ahead of time. To cater for the extra demand for courses, we scheduled an additional practical course in October to run back-to- back with the September course.
All in all, we successfully certified 53 new EPTI fitness professionals during the year, all of which have been trained up to the EPTI gold standard of quality.
Students have travelled far and wide to attend the courses, this year coming from Europe,
North America, South America, Oceania, Asia and Africa!
We want to go one better next year… so we now have a vacancy for a sales person in Antartica to collect the full set! [Read more…]
The European Personal Training Institute (EPTI) was founded by Toby & Dan Clay in 2014, who both have successful fit-pro businesses since 2000 and 2003 respectively, to address the declining standards of fitness education in the UK. We noticed that training providers were beginning to follow the model of the USA market and offer shorter practical courses with less face to face time and practical experience, using freelance tutors in order to compete on price rather than quality of service.
We hope that you’re enjoying the summer….
Time has flown since our newsletter in January and we have completed two successful practical courses in that time – both of which were fully sold out! We’ve also expanded and made changes to our tutor team, read below for more details…
I’ve just returned from spending a few days on the Costa del Sol. It was awesome to have a change of scenery and spend time there, catching up with past students that are living there. I was there speaking with gyms in and around Marbella & Estepona and the rest of the Costa del Sol, and also Gibraltar too, to become fitness affiliates of EPTI.
Luckily for me, my visit occurred pre-Brexit, as I somehow found myself in the situation of crossing the border into Gibraltar without my passport – as you can imagine, I spent the rest of the day a little bit worried about my chances of getting back to Spain!
New Costa del Sol Training Campus
We are excited to announce the opening of our 2nd campus on Spain's fantastic Costa Del Sol.
Located halfway between Gibraltar and Marbella, our Estepona campus offers World Class training facilities allowing us to continue providing the Gold Standard in fitness courses to an even greater audience in Europe and Spain. [Read more…]
So although all EPTI Master PT Diploma students receive the free EPTI PT Business Supremacy and Online PT Supremacy courses which help to give the perfect platform in which to set up a successful fitness business, we often have graduates who choose to rent space as a PT with a corporate health club.
Through this blog, we will look to address the important details you need to have covered before you approach one of these clubs for an advertised PT vacancy.
Like some of the larger training institutions, EPTI have agreements with many of the large corporate chains, where our graduates are guaranteed an interview for any advertised vacancy to which they are qualified for. This doesn’t guarantee that you’ll get the job however… [Read more…]
Happy New Year!!
We hope that you had an awesome festive period and are ready to take on 2016!
Looking back on 2015 at European Personal Training Institute there were a few challenges, many lessons learned and lots of great memories!
Looking ahead to 2016 we will continue to strive to bring you the highest quality instructor training programs and deliver the best results in the shortest time possible.
How about you?
Did you achieve your goals for 2015… have you set new goals for 2016?
Are you still harbouring for a change of career to do something that truly drives you in life?
We look forward to the final practical course of the year at the end of this month, after a hectic and action packed 12 months – where we have continued to grow and improve the Personal Training learning experience for our students and graduates alike.
