CIMSPA partners with YOUR Personal Training
YOUR Personal Training (YPT) has gained its CIMSPA Training Provider Partner status, giving authority and industry recognition to YPT’s CPD and mentoring programme.
YPT’s digital training elements, which include business support, how to market and promote your business, and lead generation strategy, are complimentary to all YPT trainers, supporting the PT’s to have a more sustainable career and PT business.
Aaron McCulloch, Managing Director, YOUR Personal Training says: “We are always looking at ways to professionalise the role of the Personal Trainer, and our CPD educational pathway, alongside our one-to-one mentoring programme, ensures the YPT trainers are the best in the industry.
“This trusted training provider partner status will enable us to continue to create up–to-date and relevant CIMSPA accredited and recognised courses for our PT’s across the UK, which have ‘real world’ application.”
James Pittam, a successful YPT personal trainer working out of Penrith Leisure Centre, says: “The YPT mentoring programme gave me a really good insight into how to run and maintain my PT business. PT’s are often great at the ‘workouts’ but not so experienced about the expectations and reality of running their own PT business. The training put me in the right frame of mind and gave me business confidence. It taught me how to schedule and budget, and even when it’s okay to say no. I also learnt how to approach new clients, how to promote my service and how to turn enquiries into bookings. The CPD put me on the right path to success. Overall, the support from the team at YPT has been fantastic. They are really championing the PT and it’s great to have them as my biggest cheerleader.”
YOUR Personal Training’s current CPD content is driven by the PT’s, as McCulloch explains: “The PTs feedback to us on what support they need and, using our industry experience and expertise, we create the content in an easily digestible format, enabling our PT’s to put the training into immediate practice, which further supports the success of their coaching and PT businesses.
“We have long known that the content and ongoing education we provide our personal trainers is industry leading, and to be recognised for delivering quality assured CPD that is endorsed by the sport and physical activity sector’s chartered professional body provides a powerful ‘stamp of approval’ for both YPT and the training we offer.”
