Our Commitment

David Lloyd Clubs have pledged to have at least one personal trainer in each club over the age of 55 by the end of 2022.

“Older members often feel more comfortable training with someone their own age,” – quote from Dave Evans, our 73-year-old David Lloyd PT who has clients aged from 12 to 80.

We are keen to challenge any perceptions that fitness, or a career in fitness, is solely a domain for younger people.

We believe any age is the right age to pursue a career as a personal trainer, so much so that we have introduced an internal 8 week training course to gain your Level 3 Personal Training qualification (if you have achieved the entry Level 2 Health & Fitness qualification)

We also offer Apprenticeships to enable a L2 Health & Fitness Coach become a Personal Trainer, offering one to one coaching, within a year.
