Premier Training International launches new venue in Solihull

Responding to the growing number of people turning to a career in the health and fitness industry, Premier Training International has announced plans to open a new training venue at the David Lloyd in Solihull in May. Following recent announcements of new venues in Exeter, Sheffield and Teddington, the Solihull venue represents a continuation of the training provider’s nationwide expansion plans.

  • In addition to the existing Premier venue in Dudley, the Solihull venue will operate a full portfolio of Active IQ accredited health and fitness training qualifications – qualifications that are fully recognised by both employers and the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs)
  • The courses on offer provide ways for people to gain respected qualifications in the health and fitness industry without taking the traditional route of going to university
  • The courses on offer at the new venue in Solihull will include the International Diploma in Advanced Personal Training, which will start on 7th May
  • The diploma provides the foundation knowledge to become a successful personal trainer and the methodology to successfully instruct, supervise and design effective exercise programmes
  • Other courses available will include the Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instruction and the Level 3 Certificate in Advanced Personal Training.


Debra Stuart, CEO at Premier Training International, comments:

Obviously this is a period of real expansion and progress for Premier, and our Solihull venue is the latest development in our plans for 2012. The demand for health and fitness course provision continues to increase by the day, and we are committed to meeting that demand with the best courses on the market. We do have a midlands venue in Dudley already, but we hope that the David Lloyd in Solihull will offer people in the area easier access to Premier courses.
