AIPT Reviews & Student Success Stories
At the Australian Institute of Personal trainers, we’re all about creating real graduate outcomes. That means equipping our students with the job-ready skills needed to enter and excel in the fitness industry. We achieve this by delivering courses in real gyms, where you’ll learn from real fitness professionals and have the chance to discover employment opportunities right after graduation.
But don’t take our word for it. Read the AIPT reviews below to see what AIPT students and graduates have to say about their experience. These past student success stories provide great examples for where your AIPT course could take you.

Lorenzo Lucarelli, AIPT Graduate
