Become a fitness instructor

What will I be doing as a fitness instructor?

Being a fitness and gym instructor isn’t just about telling people how to work their biceps, its all about giving advice on diet, exercise technique and training plans. A good fitness instructor is also so much more.

Because they will really need to be on top of their game when it comes to the latest training advice and guidance. Also, a fitness practitioner (especially one trained by us) will also be using the latest ACSM  guidance for the latest peer reviewed scientific research in health and fitness enabling you to stay one step ahead of the competition.
