About Us

Pocketfit LLP was created in 2010, when Dean Liggett and Daniella Lerner identified a gap in the industry for good quality exercise and fitness resources and training.

They found that people of all ages had been finding themselves wanting to stay fit and healthy but they were unable to access easy to follow information that didn’t require smart phones, internet or computers.

PocketFit reacted to this gap and created resources allowing people to have access to an exercise programme any time, any place, anywhere. The programmes designed for kids, titled PocketFit Cards, have since evolved to include: a training matrix for teachers, as well as guides and programmes to support curricular and extra-curricular activity to primary schools.

Dean is a Personal Trainer by trade and the creator of the Pocketfit Cards and Daniella is a Nursery School Teacher with a passion for health and fitness and feels strongly that children should be educated in a healthy lifestyle in order to tackle the growing obesity problems and to help promote a healthy attitude to life and learning.

Through the experience gained by creating resources for the general public, PocketFit Training realised that there was a further need for high quality exercise and fitness professionals and at the same time that there were young people in need of a career opportunity that would put them on a successful career path and learning journey.

PocketFit Training are a unique and innovative training provider that offers ActiveIQ qualifications to the Health & Fitness sector. All courses and workshops have been endorsed by Skills Active.
