Invaluable practical experience!

Before OriGym Ramnik was facing redundancy after a 10-year career. With an existing interest in health and fitness, Ramnik knew a role helping others to reach their goals would suit his personality and ambition. Searching online, he signed up to the Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer course. 

I absolutely made the right decision to choose OriGym! I’m very grateful for their continued support and their amazing tutors. They are really encouraging, helping to build your confidence to succeed. OriGym’s approach to flexibility encouraged me to study in my own time through online assessments and tutorials. Perfect for a busy parent juggling responsibilities.

My career since has gone from strength to strength. I set up my own brand whilst studying, creating a home-based studio where I train my clients. I also work as a Group Fitness Instructor, have set up my own HIIT fitness event and work with local academies encouraging children to enjoy exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Former Professional Footballer

Great Reviews!

Matthew Briggs was the youngest player ever to play in the premier league, aged 16 years and 68 days for Fulham. He has also played for Millwall, Watford, Bristol City and Colchester United.

After playing football my entire life, I've been recently thinking about what to do post football. A natural progression for me is becoming a personal trainer to utilise my current skills and experience.

After researching the best providers in the industry, OriGym came up with a big online presence and I was impressed by what I saw on the website. After looking through other testimonials, as well as student reviews, OriGym seemed the logical choice and I'm glad I chose to learn with them. 

I'm looking to merge both my life coaching and personal training qualification together, with the ultimate goal being a mind and body fitness trainer.

He's made over 100 appearances for Glasgow Warriors, being twice awarded as Glasgow Warriors player of the season and also won the Pro12 title with Glasgow in the 2014-15 season. He also has 36 caps for Fiji.

I have a huge passion for health, fitness and rugby since I was young and now wants to broaden my knowledge across fitness with the goal of helping others. I Did some research across different courses and companies, OriGym was really attractive as a provider with how the course was structured. Being able to study Online around rugby, training and family commitments is really important to me. The course is easy to follow, with a mixture of information, quizzes and assignments. All of the subjects, modules and content are really interesting and helps broaden my knowledge. I'd be excited to do some personal training in the gym in the off season in the meantime to get some experience. I'm also excited to continue to study and get more knowledge in different areas with OriGym.
