Who is this course for?

It is the ideal qualification to enter in to the fitness industry at a higher level. You can treat clients on a 1-2-1 basis or on a small group basis. Your treatment will always be aimed at improving your client/patient’s medical state through the use of exercise and nutrition.

What will you learn from this course?

Some of the units you will study with our on-line sports massage courses are:

– Anatomy and Physiology (if you haven’t already qualified as a personal trainer)
– Principles of exercise
– Nutrition
– Professional practice
– Medical conditions, their treatment, medications, side effects and co-morbidities
– How to plan for different diseases/illness

How is the course delivered?

All of the theory and case study work is completed via distance, on-line study with the guidance of your tutor and all the practical is done at a workshop weekend with an assessment day when ready.

So, in a nutshell, you study the theory on-line as an independent learner, complete your portfolio with the guidance of your tutor and attend a workshop and assessment weekend to finish your course.

Can I make a good living once qualified?

First and foremost, you will be doing something you love on a daily basis. Regarding your earnings, this is down to you. There are a couple of main options; freelance, setting up your own referral scheme with local doctor surgeries on a referral and commission basis. Or gaining employment at a gym with a government funded exercise referral contract as an exercise referral instructor.

If you are already qualified as a personal trainer, this qualification is ideal to help you to keep potential clients by not having to refer them on to somebody else due to having a minor to moderate illness outside of your scope of practice.

You’ll have the best earning potential if you go freelance. However, your success depends on YOU. Just like with any trade, you have to build your customer base. This is hard work. It requires research, a plan and consistency. But this is something we help you with as part of your course.
