Essential Skills & Knowledge
This gym instructor training course covers the main elements of becoming a fitness professional by teaching you essential skills and knowledge divided between 6 Units of learning:
- Anatomy and physiology for exercise
- Know how to support clients who take part in exercise and physical activity
- Health, safety and welfare in a fitness environment
- Principles of exercise, fitness and health
- Planning gym-based exercise
- Instructing gym-based exercise
The Gym Instructor course is delivered via a series of supported workshops. We believe our balance of face to face delivery and home based learning is the perfect way to take on all the course information and prepare you for the workplace. Candidates are assessed via theory exams, student completed worksheets, and observations of instructing gym based practical sessions.
Become a People Expert
Knowing how to perform resistance exercise with perfect form is certainly a skill you’ll need as a gym instructor. Here at Jump we want to help develop instructors that are much more than that. We want out instructors to be “people experts” as well as “exercise experts”. Once your clients have taken the first step how will you encourage them adhere to exercise in the long term? On our course we’ll make you more than an exercise expert so your clients get the results they deserve.
Continued Support After Graduating
Following completion of the gym instructor course what’s your next step? If you’re in the Cheltenham area we’ll endeavour to put you in touch with local gyms, leisure centres and health clubs that we have contacts with. We’ve helped secure Jump graduates positions in Simply Gym, Fitness4less, Cheltenham Park Hotel and Spirit Health and Fitness. Students of ours have secured work experience at Leisure@Cheltenham which has led to employment in leisure facilities afterwards. Many of our Gym Instructor graduates also decide to come back to us and complete the Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training to help further their careers.
