    All student testimonials for Australian Institute of Personal Trainers

    "The day that I got the email to say I had passed my course, Sean Weir Fitness was advertising for a new personal trainer. I applied for the job and had an interview the next day. I now instruct five boot camps and two box fit classes a week and I have many personal training clients. I am currently employed by Sean Weir Fitness and am looking to start my Diploma of Fitness with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. I am so happy to be doing a job that I love and look forward to going to work everyday."

    “After quitting my job as a director of two preschools in Bondi, I started the fast track course with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. Within 2 weeks I began managing the gym due to my previous experience and within in 12 months, I bought the gym from my mentor! The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers enabled me to get started in my business and now I’m a campus director for AIPT, and I love helping others achieve their dream.”

    “I work with a registered training organisation while still delivering personal training sessions. My Certificate IV in Training and Assessment qualification has enabled me to increase my revenue, achieve fantastic business growth and combine my passion for fitness and education.”

    Louise Richards , Certificate IV in Training and Assessment
