Why should I join the Institute of Personal Trainers?
The Institute of Personal Trainers was built specifically to support personal trainers with their business systems, marketing and day to day PT business challenges. We provide a code of ethical conduct to abide by that you can show your clients and resources to help you get more clients.
What's the difference between the iPT and REPS?
REPs is an independent, public register which recognises and regulates the qualifications and expertise of health-enhancing exercise instructors in the UK. To be a member of REPs, personal trainers are required to take Continued Professional Development (CPD courses) to demonstrate industry competency.
The Institute of Personal Trainers is a directory and Code of Ethical Conduct for qualified personal trainers to list their services and demonstrate their competency to prospective clients.
We don't require that you take mandatory CPD courses or buy our insurance because we believe experience is just as powerful a tool as knowledge.
What country do I need to be in?
The Institute of Personal Trainers is a global community of fitness professionals who have agreed to abide by a code of ethical conduct. We welcome personal trainers from all countries.
Do I need to be a qualified PT?
Anyone who is a PT or works with personal trainers can join the iPT to access the personal trainer resources. You may be working as a personal trainer already, studying towards a personal trainer qualification or rent gym space to self employed personal trainers.
However, to create a published profile, we need a picture of your personal trainer certificate as proof of qualification.
