Hi, my name is Darryl Kelly. I have a passion for fitness and always wanted to study to become a personal trainer, I found fitcert online. I then e-mailed them to enquire about the course. Keith rang me on a mid-week evening and could not have been more helpful. I then started the PT course and was lucky to get the tutor I did Paul Keely his knowledge was outstanding and he was easy to learn from.

Since the course I have got full time employment in a gym, this was a stepping stone, as my main goal is to be self employed. I was proud but never satisfied and I now work as a freelance PT also still full time in a gym. This was a massive goal for me. Since the course my life has changed greatly I would highly recommend FitCert.

I started my fitness journey with Fitcert exactly one year ago October 2017. To say my life has changed dramatically would be an understatement. I was stagnant in my previous job at the time and wasn’t sure what road I wanted to take. I just knew that I wanted things to change.

I was apprehensive about venturing into fitness as I didn’t have very much knowledge and wasn’t an avid gym goer. But I took the plunge and enrolled in the Fitness Instructor/Personal Trainer course with Fitcert.

To my surprise I excelled in every aspect and came away with Distinctions and an abundance of knowledge in all things fitness

But most importantly I gained confidence and belief in myself to enter into the world of fitness. The tutors were so amazing and instilled that confidence into each and every one of their students throughout the course.

I am now working as a gym instructor/personal trainer in a very busy gym in the city center. I also run my own HiiT classes in my local area twice a week.

I cannot stress enough how grateful I am to all the team at Fitcert. I wake every morning and am excited to go to work and see what the day holds. I love my job!

If I could give you one piece of advice it would be to feel the fear and do it anyway. It will always pay off believe me. I am a testament to that. Good luck to everyone on their journey and remember Knowledge is King

Yours in Fitness…

Fitcert was the best course I could have chosen for my fitness career it was massive change for me going from being in university in huge class groups where the lecturer is just talking at you to fitcert where the class groups were small and the tutors are involved with each student and for the most part you are not just sitting in a class room you are actively involved with learning on the gym floor. Every tutor we had had the highest knowledge of the fitness industry.

I’m currently working as a class and fitness instructor for Ben Dunne gyms where I teach a variety of classes including spinning, strength & conditioning, kettlebells, HIIT, bootcamp, burn & firm and core blast.

I’ve recently started teaching my own classes and taking on both one to one PT clients and group PT clients, at A.M.D Personal Training, Elite Physique, Dublin 12. The focus of my clients at the moment is 6&12week weight loss challenges.

I owe a lot of how I am now in my business to Fitcert and the example they set for us on how to work professionally in this industry.

Approaching my first year as a  fully qualified personal trainer and I  couldn’t be happier. It was all down to help and support of fitcert. At the start of the course I had no idea if I would fully commit and stick it out due to self doubt. Thankfully  I did stick it out! I’m currently working in a fully equipped gym “FBT”. Thanks to the help of the owners and my work colleagues of FBT I am starting to develop as a well established Personal trainer.

If you are half thinking of taking up the fitness industry I highly recommend going with fitcert! The Tutors are very encouraging and helpful and are willing to help you the best way they can. Do a course at fitcert,take the risk and finally enjoy the fitness industry. It’s Great!
