Delivering the Gold Standard for Quality in Scotland.
Pegasus provides an accelerated route to resettlement training and employment within the fitness industry.
Pegasus Training has established a reputation as one of Scotland’s leading vocational fitness training providers and Glasgow’s centre for excellence in Personal Training courses. Founded by an ex-military Warrant Officer, Pegasus has a unique insight into the conditions associated with life and commitments within the military. This allows them to offer the support and flexible approaches required to bridge the gap between military and civilian life.
Pegasus is a preferred supplier for the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) who guide personnel during resettlement and also for the Enhanced Learning Credits funding scheme ELCAS. This means that the MoD will support current serving personnel and service leavers who have been out of the forces for less than ten years by contributing toward the cost of learning with Pegasus.
A personal service, guaranteed small class sizes and courses delivered by working Personal Trainers ensures the highest quality learning experience and access to current industry trends. Pegasus has expert local knowledge to ensure the best employment opportunities and have an unparalleled record of placing service personnel into civilian roles.
Becoming a Personal Trainer
The Pegasus Diploma in Personal Training is undoubtedly the most direct route to employment within the industry. It immerses you in all aspects of health and fitness through completion of both the Level 2 ‘Fitness Instructor Gym’ and Level 3 ‘Certificate in Personal Training’ qualifications.
The course explores how to design safe, effective training programmes by learning about the systems of the body, principles of training and professional practice. This forms the basis of deeper learning about advanced training approaches, nutrition, lifestyle analysis, fitness testing and motivational techniques.
The course is fast-tracked on a full-time basis over six weeks or can be completed over a period of time to suit the student, through blended learning. This flexible education experience can be tailored to fit around military commitments, combining home study, practical workshops and one-to-one tutorials over a bespoke period of time.
Once qualified, students have the freedom to choose employment within a gym or to become your own boss as a freelance trainer. The UK health and fitness industry is booming, growing by 75% in the last 10 years. As a working Personal Trainer within this industry, an average session will earn you between £30 and £45 per hour.
We are ideally located at our permanent training centre within the David Lloyd Club in Glasgow’s West End. This location offers excellent transport and rail links as well as ample secure parking. Our students are also given temporary club memberships, offering them unlimited access to state of the art gym, sports and leisure facilities.

Carla Molinaro’s Story (Ex-Army Captain)
Upon leaving the Army the main challenge for me was deciding what direction to go in. After trying a few different jobs, I found my passion for Personal Training and decided to make a career change. I started to look for providers in Scotland and following strong recommendations from qualified, working Personal Trainers and thorough Internet research I found Pegasus Training. An added bonus of finding Pegasus was that I could use my Enhanced Learning Credits to help fund the course.
The course was well structured and run by incredibly knowledgeable instructors who made lectures interesting and fun.
I had a great 6 weeks on the course; met some great people and most importantly, I secured employment with the David Lloyd as a Personal Trainer prior to completing the course.
If you want a career in Personal Training I would highly recommended Pegasus Training. Not only will you gain a great qualification, the team will go the extra mile to help with your resettlement and job opportunities.
