Personal Trainer Mentorship Programme

Our W10 Performance 12 week mentorship programme will give you the opportunity to experience first hand how we work in our leading personal training gyms.  Each of our interns will have the chance to coach within our system and become familiar with the intricacies of programme design, nutritional coaching and gym operations.

We work closely with our mentees to develop both practical and theoretical skills, ensuring that we influence the best coaches in the business, raising the standard of coaching in the UK, and ensuring that our graduates can realise their career aspirations.

We want to influence the best coaches in the business.  Ones that we would welcome into our W10 team or would be happy to recommend to other gym owners and personal training clients.

As a W10 student you will also have the opportunity to attend our two weekly staff training and development meetings, which focus on technical proficiency, systems administration and improving the overall member experience.

Additionally, all of our interns will have access to all of our further continued professional development seminars and programmes, both in-house and externally, during the duration of their time with us.


Our Mission Statement

Our aim is to redesign the landscape of fitness in the UK and Europe by training and developing the best coaches around.  We want the graduates of our W10 Internship Programme to develop the knowledge and skills to go on to be leaders in the field of personal training and exercise coaching.


How it works

The W10 mentorship is a 12 week programme which consists of in-house ‘on the floor’ coaching.  At the start of the programme our students familiarise themselves with our programming, exercise technique, our nutritional approach, and the ‘W10 way’.

They also complete fifteen hours each week, for twelve weeks, working hands-on in our W10 gyms, delivering group classes, semi-private training sessions and some one-to-one training.

Students are assigned to one of our coaches, who report to our mentorship programme manager, who both work closely with our with them each week to review coaching diaries and develop both technical and practical understanding across all areas.


What’s included

Our W10 programme is a two-hundred hour personal trainer development pathway.

This format guarantees that our interns gain both the theoretical and practical understanding and experience to develop into one of the best personal trainers and exercise coaches in the business.

Our W10 interns will also get an insight and first hand experience as to the inner working in one of the most successful personal training gyms in the UK.
