Dependent on which Level 4 course you wish to study, you may need prior qualifications.

For both the Level 4 Lower Back Pain Management and Level 4 Obesity and Diabetes qualifications, students will be required to hold a Level 3 Personal Training or Exercise Referral qualification (or equivalent).

For the Level 4 Nutrition for Sport and Exercise course, there are no prior qualification prerequisites.

For both programmes, students must be aged 16 or older.

Our Level 4 Personal Trainer programmes in Lower Back Pain Management and Obesity & Diabetes are both accredited by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPS) and the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

OriGym offers three different Level 4 qualifications which enable you to develop specialist knowledge in particular areas of fitness and exercise. Which course you study will dictate what you will learn. 

Students on the Lower Back Pain Management course will cover topics such as the types and causes of back pain, posture and movement, assessment techniques and activity planning to aid treatment. 

The Obesity & Diabetes course covers various aspects of nutrition and diet planning for individuals managing their weight loss and diabetes, including understanding the long-term behaviours of such individuals and how to develop programmes to support them. 

Finally, the Nutrition for Sport & Exercise course covers multiple aspects of nutrition including diet planning, macros and micros, understanding how to plan diets for special populations, and how to plan vegan and vegetarian diets to aid fitness goals.

Achieving your Level 4 qualification opens numerous career opportunities. With training in a specialist area, you will now be able to work with niche client groups, many of whom will come through formal programmes after a referral from their GP.

Alternatively, you may prefer to work with private groups who cater to clients in your specialist area, such as weight management groups or physiotherapists – roles which open up much higher salary opportunities.

As an OriGym student, you’ll receive continuous support throughout your course. As all of our Level 4 qualifications are studied exclusively via our award-nominated e-learning platform, you’ll be assigned a dedicated personal tutor who will be available by phone or email 7-days per week. As professionals in their specialist area, tutors will be able to help steer and guide you through the course, ensuring your success.

Alongside your tutor, OriGym’s “Student Zone” platform provides you with plenty of resources to succeed with your studies, including e-books, interactive resources, online lectures and seminars, training manuals and PDFs, and more.

Also, as you’re able to study the course at your own pace, and in your own time, there’s no pressure and no stress to stick to difficult deadlines.

Depending on your subject pathway, assessment methods for the course vary. For programmes which include examinations, these will be completed online, whilst programmes which include a practical assessment must be completed in person at one of OriGym’s 12 venues in cities across the UK.

Dafydd James was a Rugby player who played 48 times for Wales, scoring 15 tries and toured with the British & Irish Lions. He played for Sale Sharks, Harlequins and Cardiff Blues amongst other prestigious clubs, making over 300 club a during his professional career.

I want to advance myself, refresh existing knowledge and I'd like to develop a business utilising this Nutrition qualification that can help other people.

After researching online and looking at various courses, I was happy to choose a recognised qualification which is what OriGym offers. Additionally, it was important for me to see that there is a lot of positive feedback from reviews, as well as the course content looked thorough and in depth.

I chose this course as I'm looking to add another dimension and skillset to my business. If I can utilise the framework provided by OriGym, I will be able to develop business opportunities and educate anyone from the general public to professional athletes. Not only this, but I'm looking to personally develop and create a successful business using support from OriGym.
