FITNESS INSTRUCTOR COURSES

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.


Becoming a fitness instructor, also known as a gym instructor, is a starting point for your career in fitness. 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. It's a great place to start if you are not sure if you want to be a PT just yet.


You can choose to study full or part time with one of our top tutors, or via distance study and, whichever study option you select, once completed successfully you’ll gain official entry onto the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) at level 2. You will also receive a YMCA Awards or Active IQ certificate.


Signing up is easy: simply fill in our online application or call us. Once your application has been accepted, you’ll gain instant access to your course material to get you started straight away.
