Course Description

This is a practical, fun and versatile course that will allow you to give group fitness classes in a high-energy atmosphere. It covers the fundamentals of group fitness instruction including exercise and dance moves, music selection, choreography and teaching methods.

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.
