Does the course equip me for high-intensity interval training?

You can apply the knowledge you learn in this course for HIIT sessions. Groups can benefit from enhanced physical fitness, and this form of training proves to be very beneficial.

You’ll also learn about body conditioning, strength training and sports exercise for training groups of athletes.

What are the entry requirements?

Many of our students begin their studies with the Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification, but you can go straight onto this course if you’d prefer. However, instructing groups is more problematic as you have to focus on individual participation, so learning practical skills as a gym instructor first can be beneficial.

Why choose The Fitness Circle over other training providers?

The Fitness Circle is one of the premier fitness training providers, and we’re proud of our achievements. We prioritise your learning experience to ensure that professional practice is a priority when you’re instructing.

With so many happy and successful previous students, we’re confident you’ll have no problem finding work after completing the course.

Are there decent career opportunities available?

Yes, absolutely. People are more concerned now than ever before about their fitness. When you complete the certificate in group training, you can enjoy plenty of career prospects and work in a gym or health club – and even alone if you’d prefer.

Upon completing the qualification, learners can move on to other areas of study, including the Level 3 Personal Trainer course.

Many people choose to build their strength and resilience in a fitness environment, so there are always opportunities for personal training professionals.

Whether you want to work with general fitness clients or help athletes with lifestyle management, you’ll find plenty of doors ajar in the fitness industry.
