Fitness Courses

Fitness is something that most people strive for, but a career in fitness can be just as rewarding as crossing the finish line with a personal best. There are a number of areas you can choose to specialise in, that not only help you get to where you want to be, but will have you helping others to reach their goals.

A certificate III or IV in fitness can lead you to roles in gyms, sports and recreation, community facilities and other fitness facilities. These qualifications will provide you with strong foundations in instruction, health and safety, strength and conditioning and basic nutrition.

A certificate in fitness can lead to a career as a fitness instructor or personal trainer. With this training, not only will you be helping others, but you will also learn how to keep yourself at your physical peak.

There’s also the sports development and sports coaching side of things, and a course in either of these will equip you for jobs where you work with athletes in coaching and team management. You will cover areas such as sports psychology and nutrition as well as consumer behaviour and project management, to ensure you can manage your clients effectively.
