Working within the gym environment allows you to bring your passion for fitness to life – helping others improve their fitness, wellbeing and confidence while enjoying the satisfaction that comes with it.

Our gym instructor course will provide you with the skills and knowledge to plan and deliver tailored gym programmes that are designed with health and safety at their core.

You will also receive a YMCA Awards or Active IQ certificate.

GYM INSTRUCTOR COURSE

Learn how to effectively support your clients with their individual needs during exercise and physical activity. This includes how to communicate effectively, how to motivate clients and how to demonstrate.

Fitness environments present a number of dangers that could potentially injure people. This includes exercise technique, moving weights safely as well as the wider environment e.g fire safety.
