Step 1
Step 2
  • Our Exercise Specialist course is a full occupational certification
  • Offers you the best of both specialised fitness training and sport conditioning, meaning that you can train special groups like the elderly, children and pregnant clients, as well as train sports people to compete at their highest level
  • If you are an already qualified personal trainer looking for the competitive edge, this internationally portable certificate is a great way to broaden your scope of practice
  • Our Sports Conditioning course is intended for already qualified personal trainers who would like to take things to the next level by specialising further in training sports people and athletes.
  • Allows you to apply advanced programme design and conditioning methods in the fields of strength conditioning and high performance training to prepare athletes to compete at the top of their sport
Studying personal training is a lot more than just reading the course content! All of our qualifications requires the student to complete a certain amount of hours of shadowing (work integrated learning). Not only is this required to pass the course but will also be of benefit to you as it will help you obtain real world experience before entering the fitness industry. It will also give you in-the-field experience that you won’t get in a classroom and it allows you to explore the industry before committing to it full time.
