Outdoor Fitness Course


Outdoor Fitness Course



Training outdoors can pose a number of concerns to health and safety that will not have been covered for the gym environment. It is important that all trainers who wish to train outdoors are aware of the potential dangers and take the necessary precautions to avoid them.

There are a number of types of training that you can complete outdoors from bodyweight hypertrophy sessions to speed drills and flexibility. During this course you will explore a wide range of training sessions that can be completed outdoors.

Programming exercise outdoors is slightly different to gym based exercise but can often allow more flexibility. To help maximise your sessions this course will cover programming outdoor exercise and looks at how you can utilise your environment in the best way possible.

With a number of different programming options we will also cover exercises and equipment that may be useful. These include advanced bodyweight exercises, flexibility exercises, hand weights, resistance bands, Swiss balls, GymStick and others!

Training outdoors lends itself perfectly to group exercise sessions. For trainers who are more used to an enclosed training environment it can be a learning curve to cater to the needs of a group. During this part of the course we go through everything you will need to conduct fun, efficient and effective group sessions and classes.

Gyms provide the perfect marketing environment to pick up new clients. However, if you're training people outdoors you may have to take a slightly different approach to picking up clients. Group sessions can be a useful asset for doing this but during the course we will cover a variety of different tools and techniques.
