You will be required to attend College one evening per week and gain some relevant experience in the health and fitness industry to achieve this NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (Gym-Based Exercise).
The first 5-6 weeks focus on the theory of anatomy and physiology. The last part of the course will be based in the gym where you will learn about the different equipment, plan a gym session for your client and then instruct your client to use the equipment. We will use the gym at Craven Leisure Centre for the practical elements of the course.
You will also complete two specialist gym-based units:
Your knowledge and skills will be assessed through written work and by planning a gym session for a client which you will then instruct and deliver.
Ideally you should use the gym on a regular basis, be familiar with the equipment in the gym and have a basic knowledge of your muscles and anatomy and physiology.
This course is quite intense and therefore some previous knowledge is an advantage.
You could also progress onto the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training.
