About Create PT

On a mission to create the best possible fitness professionals, Create PT aims to be the most trusted hub for personal training education and information.

Create PT offers a set of bespoke personal training qualifications, covering everything that a top fitness professional really needs to know. Students can access their course material at their own convenience through the intuitive app and a helpful, friendly tutor with years of experience is always on hand to answer any questions.


Create PT courses promote lifelong learning and include additional materials that you will always have access to, even after you’ve qualified. With a plethora of CPDs and useful, up-to-date content relevant to the industry, a Create PT course is so much more than a qualification!

Meet The Trainers

The Create PT team has over 30 years’ experience of running gyms and personal training. The founders, Adam and Josh, have met and become close to many other fitness professionals in their careers. They realised that many trainers lacked either personal skills or real, useful fitness knowledge and that many newly qualified personal trainers struggled to source new clients. 

So, Adam and Josh decided to use their wealth of knowledge and experience to help the next generation of fitness professionals become the trainers that the industry needed them to be.

Adam Rhodes

As a boy, Adam competed in Thai boxing and harboured a deep love of keeping active. He always had a dream of running his own business and spending his life doing exactly what he loved. Through hard work and determination, he embarked on small ventures throughout his teens and managed to open up his very own gym at the age of 25. Today, Adam is still passionate about helping others realise and achieve their health and fitness goals.

Josh also spent his childhood driven by a big passion for sport. He even began to rise through the national ranks in both swimming and tennis. But when professional sport started to seem a little out of reach, Josh went to college to study sport and gained his Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification. This was the perfect way to stay involved in an industry that he loved. He went on to gain his Level 3 Personal Training qualification and began his first job at a health and fitness centre.
