WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

Our teaching programme is built on the foundation of the experience and research of our tutors, who have been working in the fitness industry for more than 10 years. It is created to help health and fitness professionals deliver tailored programmes that their future clients will require to live a healthy lifestyle.

During the course not only will you gather the knowledge that enables you to train people one to one, but you will also learn many different training techniques and principles of assisting your clients with professionalism.

A personal trainer’s role includes designing, implementing and evaluating exercise/physical activity programmes for apparently healthy and low-risk adult populations by collecting and analysing client information to ensure the effectiveness and safety of personal exercise programmes. A personal trainer should also actively encourage potential clients/members to participate in and adhere to regular exercise/physical activity programmes, employing appropriate motivational strategies to achieve this.
