In the last few months motive8CPD has undergone a rebrand and is now called motive8IQ. When originally set up, motive8CPD focused on delivering courses and workshops to already qualified personal trainers who wanted to perform additional study for their own personal development, and also to stay active on REPS. However, over the last few years, the Directors of motive8 have become more and more frustrated by the number of newly qualified personal trainers who were not up to industry standards because they had qualified to become a personal trainer in just 4 weeks! So, we decided to do something to change it!

Following the rebrand, motive8IQ focuses on offering high quality courses for aspiring Fitness Instructors and Personal Trainers. The aim of motive8IQ is to raise industry standards by only allowing the highest quality trainers to pass their course. Unlike other course providers, who may just be interested in bums on seats, motive8IQ is focused on ensuring each learner receives the amount of attention they deserve to become the best trainer they can be. We monitor student-tutor rations during the face to face study days, each learner is assigned their own tutor, with whom they have weekly contact to answer any queries they may have about the course content and every learner has a careers session with one of our Master Trainers once they have completed the course.

Some of the existing motive8 personal training team have trained to become tutors and will be responsible for delivering the courses. Jenny Cromack, motive8IQ Director, explains: “We felt it was important to have experienced personal trainers delivering the courses so they could not only share their knowledge, but also their experience of what it takes to be a successful personal trainer to the learners.”

Currently offering the Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing and Level 3 in Personal Training in Leeds, motive8IQ has plans to expand to London and the Midlands in the next 6 months.
