Creating inspired, work-ready professionals

The Australian Institute of Personal Trainers is Australia's leading provider of fitness and nutrition courses. We have been producing the highest calibre of leaders in the fitness industry for over 20 years. 

When we launched in 1999, we started with only a handful of campuses across Queensland. Since then, we have grown phenomenally and now boast over 150 campuses and mentors Australia-wide. Our years of hard work have paid off; we are now established as the leading fitness and nutrition education provider in the country and offer our graduates the best employment opportunities.

Our values

Our core values - integrity, quality, professionalism, empowerment, and innovation - drive our students and industry partners to achieve their best possible outcomes.

We know that all students learn differently, so we have designed our training courses with various learning styles in mind.

Our flexible study options focus on practical learning and hands-on experience. While the theoretical elements of our courses are available online, the practical components of our courses are held within one of our authentic gym campuses. Each campus offers industry-leading fitness education programs to enthusiastic Australians looking to make their mark on the fitness industry. By studying at one of our campus locations, students can work with their mentors to experience hands-on learning in a real, local gym, and design a study schedule that works around their lifestyles. 

These ground-breaking face-to-face and online learning resources are available across our fitness, nutrition and sports management courses, all in the name of improving the excellence of our graduates. Our student's successes are our own, which is why we have a dedicated education team whom students can rely upon to be available online, via email or by phone for any questions or concerns they may have. We put our students first, and so produce real outcomes. 

Furthermore, we have aligned with Australia's leading health and fitness brands, including Goodlife Health Clubs, Genesis Health and Fitness Clubs, Fitness First, Anytime Fitness, Snap Fitness, World Gym, Fitness Cartel Health Clubs, Club Lime, Core24 Health and Fitness, and over 60 leading independent operators, to create opportunities for students to access to Australia's largest network of employers, fitness professionals and fitness business owners. Together, we are raising the standards of personal trainers across the country.

They have an excellent range of courses on offer, as well as superb customer service that made me feel welcomed and supported throughout my studies.

I spoke with Tamara, who was wonderful. She gave me all the information about the course and kept in touch right throughout the enrolment process.

Studying my theory online and at my pace allowed me to continue working full-time. The face-to-face component was amazing, working with an experienced instructor.

AIPT supported me from the moment I joined. Even through COVID times, they carried on and were always there for me if I needed anything.

Studying with AIPT allowed me to study while working 5 days a week and at university. It allowed flexibility while ensuring I received the best education possible .
