Who is this course for?

If you’re looking to start your career in the fitness industry and work in a gym, then this is the best place to start.

You don’t need any prior qualifications to start this course. But experience of training in a gym will help you a great deal.

What will you learn from this course?

You will be studying lots about the human body, how it works and how best to train it for health and fitness. In addition to your theory sessions, you will also enjoy lots of practical sessions too. You will practice all the exercises you need to learn until you perfect them! Our fitness instructor courses really are of the highest quality.

How is the course delivered?

For the part-time course, you will enjoy a blended mix of home study and face to face, classroom learning at set weekends. Over the course of the 8 weeks you will attend 4 practical training weekends with one of our awesome tutors. The weekends are spread apart every other week to make it easier for you to plan around your other commitments. Whilst studying at home, you can always be assured you will never be alone. You will have access to your tutor on a 1-2-1 basis whenever you need them.

For the full-time course, you will attend 4 days a week for 2 weeks. Again, throughout this course you have access to your tutor and you will be in a small group of around 10 students.

How will I be assessed?

You will sit two theory exams that are multiple choice and are quite challenging. And you will also deliver a gym programme to a pretend client whilst being observed by one of our assessors. When you have passed all of this, you can call yourself a fitness instructor.

Can I make a good living once qualified?

This is a great qualification to get you started in the industry. It is advised by us the you attend this qualification as part of one of our personal training diplomas.

Nevertheless, should you choose to study this course alone, you will be qualified to work as a fitness instructor in a gym environment. You’ll be designing and demonstrating basic programmes to new and existing members, maintaining equipment and ensuring the gym is clean and hygienic.
