What our ambassadors say about ORIGYM

Amazing Course & Career

Before I started the course, I was a lover of the gym, but unsure where I wanted to take my career. I was at university studying something I couldn’t see myself doing. That was until I found OriGym. I wanted to do the course so I could learn more about a passion of mine and eventually turn it into a career. I wanted the knowledge to turn my passion into my day to day life. I am now going to start working in a gym as a personal trainer, building my own business and hopefully continue to study around the subject too. I’m excited for what the future holds!

In-Depth Course Content

I want to advance myself, refresh existing knowledge and I'd like to develop a business utilising this Nutrition qualification that can help other people.

After researching online and looking at various courses, I was happy to choose a recognised qualification which is what OriGym offers. Additionally, it was important for me to see that there is a lot of positive feedback from reviews, as well as the course content looked thorough and in depth.

I chose this course as I'm looking to add another dimension and skillset to my business. If I can utilise the framework provided by OriGym, I will be able to develop business opportunities and educate anyone from the general public to professional athletes. Not only this, but I'm looking to personally develop and create a successful business using support from OriGym.

Great Reviews!

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.

What our students say about ORIGYM

Outstanding - everyone at OriGym has been brilliant!

Tom did a fantastic job of getting me set up -- answering all of my questions and giving me plenty of time to really think through what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. He gave me several options for choosing a selection of courses that would help me achieve my goals and suggested the best method for doing that (blended online and in person workshops). He was friendly, patient, and confident throughout, without being pushy.

Can't overstate how valuable the workshop with Olivia was in helping prepare me for the practical assessment and in giving me a boost of confidence that I really needed. She was fantastic -- so knowledgeable, a great teacher, but really friendly and fun to be around too.

Chloe oversaw my assessment and she was also fantastic. Incredibly professional, and also really encouraging. And I was amazed at the detailed feedback she provided at the end of the session. Meanwhile, every person I have spoken to on the phone has been great -- again, professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient (even when they're answering questions they must have heard a thousand times before!).

Origym is clearly committed to excellence, and they have definitely built a team of top-rate professionals who are delivering a top-rate service.

Anne Hansford

Fantastic Workshops!

Did three workshops with Joanne, she is fantastic and explains it all really well. I was put at ease straight away, and learnt loads as Joanne was really knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend people attending these workshops - thanks!

Caren Walsh

Excellent experience !!

This has been an outstanding course. The Modules have been well laid out and very informative. I have been involved in sport for a number of years and I have been surprised  of the extra knowledge I have now collected. The Tutors have been amazing and have always been quick to support. I heard good things about Origym before I started and I have not been disappointed. Thanks again!

Colin Hamplett

Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

OriGym really stood out to me because I was able to complete my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer qualifications in my own time without deadlines. This really took the stress off and allowed me to go about my daily schedule without interruption.

The tutors at OriGym created a great support network and provided us with practical workshops to further our development. I am now a certified personal trainer and can’t wait to help future clients in achieving their goals!

Dean Dallas

Currently busy studying a personal training course via Origym.

I have extensive experience with online studies (through various institutions), and can honestly attest that Origym has been my best experience yet. I've received speedy and very helpful assistance every time that I needed help with my assessments or study-work, and absolutely LOVE the curriculum. I'd recommend anyone interested in health and fitness to enroll, it's been a blast for me so far :)

Elani Venter

Yoga Workshop!

This was my workshop of the course, Kate was very welcoming and had a great attitude towards us. She kept conversations flowing and was interested in getting to know us as individuals as well as having brilliant knowledge of Yoga and was able to answer all questions with facts. Kate really helped me out when I got particularly nervous in front of the class and pointed out things I did well which therefore made me feel more confident. Thank you, I look forward to the next one :)

Gabriela Stupinean

I have been thinking for a while about doing my personal training certificate. After ringing around and doing my homework, I found Origym to be the best suited. 

From Mitchell at the beginning, helping me choose the right course and options through to Dan, who did the assessments in London, I found Origym to be professional and swift. They helped me when I needed help and I flew through the course at ease. 

I ended up choosing the online studies and completed my certificate 2 and 3 in about 2 months and a bit . I would definitely recommend Origym if you want a quality education, great correspondence, perfect content and a support network second to none.

Since I have completed my studies I have been offered help to write my CV, look for jobs and even discounts for exercise related places that would assist me in my career. DO NOT GO ELSEWHERE. Choose ORIGYM.

I will definitely be doing my level 4 with you all.
Thanks Mitchell, Dan, Stephen and Luke

Gianni Varrone

Highly recommend

Loved the tutors and support that was given throughout the course. The practical days were informative and enjoyable. The material is laid out nicely and easy to follow and I always received a reply promptly to any of my queries. On top of this the ongoing support offered after completing the course is invaluable. I would highly recommend Origym to anyone considering distance learning.

Gina Owens - Trustpilot & Facebook

After being in and around professional sport for 13 years, this is a natural progression after learning from World Leading S&C coaches. Becoming a personal trainer will allow me to implement this knowledge for helping people and helping people achieve their goals away from sport. I'd really want to focus on helping people in their everyday lives through both mental and physical wellbeing.

OriGym's tutors have been excellent, with great feedback and the content is perfect for someone looking to get started in the industry. 

Guy Thompson

Fantastically Structured & Well Organised

Studying part-time with OriGym to fit around family and work, I achieved my Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications. I found OriGym’s courses to be fantastically structured and well organised, and my tutor Andy Tsang was brilliant - he taught me so much!

After graduating I started my fitness business with the sole purpose of empowering women, both physically and mentally. My business has now been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Breakthrough Personal Trainer’ category at Northern Ireland’s Health & Fitness Awards 2019 - I am so thrilled! I am very grateful to OriGym for giving me such a great foundation to launch my business from.

OriGym Testimonial

Working towards my level 2 and level 3 personal trainer qualifications with origym have been great! It has really allowed me to balance working a full time job as well as getting an hour in a day and really expanding my knowledge in a way that is fun and supportive from the team who are always a short call/ message away couldn’t recommend them enough!

Jennifer Day

I had a great experience studying with OriGym on the part time course. The staff are dead friendly and I found the resources easy to use and well laid out. I would strongly recommend for someone looking for a career as a PT.

Jeson Roy

The Best Course Provider

From a sports background I have always been passionate about sport, for every elite athlete passing on knowledge and expertise is a good continuum from what I've already achieved. Although this is starting something new, it's also building on something that I already have. 

I reached out to friends who have done similar courses and OriGym was mentioned as the course to go to. After I enquired, Michelle called the next day and was really organic and genuine in our conversations, whereas other providers sent a generic email where I still had to do more research myself.

As an olympian a mission is to always pass on experience and knowledge. I'd look to eventually have my own company and client base to really pass on my passion and maybe even help create a new olympian in the future!

Jessica Lee

Fantastic company

Fantastic company, really helpful on all fronts. Was really struggling with learning online and they gave me a free add on for the full time option, which must better suited my learning needs. Really enjoyed the experience and found the tutors knowledgeable and most importantly friendly. Would recommend.

Joseph Kidd - Trustpilot

Really enjoying my nutrition course!

My experience with Origym has been fab!! I am doing my Level 4 Nutrition course and it’s super easy to use, assessments get marked super quick and all round an amazing company to build on your knowledge with. Could not recommend them enough.

Lucy Chapman

Mal - Trustpilot

5* Service from all Origym staff! I'm in the process of completing my level 3 course, before my level 4 and other CPDs but so far Origym have been fantastic, every single member of staff either via telephone, email or workshops have been friendly, informative and a pleasure to speak with. Couldn't recommend them enough to anybody who wants to move into the fitness industry. I'll certainly be keeping up to date with any future courses they offer once I'm finally qualified!

Matthew Mcodnald

Would recommend to anyone looking to start a career in fitness and exercise!

I have always been involved in sport and had a passion for fitness, so the opportunity to help others reach there fitness goals is an amazing feeling. The course has given me confidence and understanding of areas I didn’t know before doing the course.

My goal after completing my level 2 course is to become a level 3 personal trainer and work 1-1 with clients helping them to achieve their goals. This has been the perfect course for me to do along side full time work and would recommend it to anyone looking to build a career in fitness and exercise. 

Max Fallone

Truly wonderful experience for me

I'm a sports science graduate and an international graduate student of MSc clinical exercise science so I didn't expect to see anything that would arouse my curiosity in a level 2 fitness instructor course but to my greatest surprise the evidence presented within the course was very outstanding and the teachers were very knowledgeable to a great extent. I would totally recommend it for anyone as I'm now looking at progressing onto the level 3 PT course...

Monday Uwadiae

Great Course Content & Structure!

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.

Nikola Matawalu

Invaluable practical experience!

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.

Ramnik Sembi


Best course I’ve ever been on! 

Not only are the instructors way ahead of the game knowledge and experience but the way they’ve deliver the course is second to none!

They make you feel so at home and welcome and they allow you to build yourself as a person and most of all theirs and your goal to becoming the best fitness instructor and personal trainer you can be like themselves.

I appreciate everything they have done for me and everyone on the course had the most enjoyable 4 weeks experience!

Thank you to all staff!!


Sean Connor

I have had such a wonderful experience with Origym. I started and completed my Level 2 Gym Instructor theory within lockdown and passed my practical after lockdown. The Origym tutors were super helpful with feedback on work. Also, the programme design had lots of information and I could work at my own pace! 

Sophie Dennison

Wonderful experience so far!

"It's been a really wonderful experience throughout with Origym. The courses are very informative with excellent teaching points - the tutors and assessors have been nothing shy of amazing and extremely helpful! Love it and fully recommend it to anyone looking for a fitness career!"

Sophie Longmire

Great Company

Done a part time PT course with origym and it suited my routine and needs and I couldn't of done it with a better team, great service and excellent and well educated tutors, will be doing further courses in the future with these guys, I would definitely recommend them if your interested in the journey to a fitness professional.

Stewart Lindsay - Trustpilot & Facebook

I love my new career!

I researched many fitness courses but kept coming back to OriGym. I felt a good vibe from the team and the owners Luke and Steph are friendly & down to earth. I loved how involved they were in the courses! The course itself was AMAZING! The staff and teachers were fantastic, I really felt that they cared about me and my progress, going above and beyond what I had ever expected from them.

I’m now a confident Personal Trainer working for an international gym chain. The future looks so bright for me; I’m even enquiring about doing a season on a Cruise ship as part of the Royal Caribbean fitness team! OriGym has helped to make my dreams come true.

Sue Evans

Great Learning Experience

I’ve just completed Level 2 and Level 3 courses with Origym as an online student. I found the course engaging and I learned a great deal, especially about the physiology of training, which was fascinating and has led me to more independent reading on the subject.  I also enjoyed learning about training systems and planning progressions - I am looking forward to putting this into practice. On the occasions that I needed input from the Origym e-tutors, this was forthcoming and the in-person assessments were conducted very well, with lots of useful feedback at L2 that really helped me at L3. Overall a very positive experience.

Susan Rose

I had an awesome experience with my full time course in Liverpool (lv. 2 and 3). 
The staff is truly amazing and really up to help you anytime, they don't end up teaching you only the basic course's stuff if you're willing to learn more and they're very supportive as well.
I'm not from England so I thought the language could have been a problem, but they used teaching methodologies (practical, figurative..) that helped me a lot.
If you want to start with the right foot your career and have help finding and starting working in this sector, search no further. :)
