Fitness Instructor Courses Explained

Become a Fitness Instructor

The Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing Gym qualification is an excellent entry point into the health and fitness industry. All gyms require their staff to have this qualification as a minimum to be able to work skilfully and safely supporting clients on the gym floor. Whilst there are no entry requirements learners who wish to complete the fitness instructor qualification should be 16+ and ideally train and use the gym themselves.

There are an overwhelming number of qualifications available and this can sometimes be confusing. When choosing the right fitness instructor course for you ensure that it is recognised. There are two main awarding bodies that develop the course specifications and drive the standards in the fitness industry. These are YMCA awards formerly Central YMCA Qualifications and Active IQ. Both are leaders in the industry and provide the most universally recognised fitness instructor qualification.

We chose to deliver YMCA qualifications as they shaped the way in the fitness industry for over 25 years celebrating award winning resources and quality of qualification. They are very well recognised and have bench marked standards across the health and fitness industry. All of our staff have completed a whole range of YMCA qualifications and believe in the quality and reputation from this awarding body.

So who to choose to study with? With a whole range of Training Providers out there promising a variety of study methods with prices all over the place – how do you decide which one to choose? The most important factor has to be cost, we set Gym Instructor Online up to provide the best qualification at the most affordable price. And as a small family training provider we continue to provide the best priced course in the most accessible learning option online. You can pay nearly £551 more for exactly the same qualification with some of the other training providers and some push you into unnecessary finance agreements with these huge tuition fees.
