Intro

According to the latest Working in Fitness report, which surveyed 35,000 Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) members, 62% of respondents are self-employed. When it comes to business, getting the basics right is of paramount importance, though it’s often overlooked by many fitness professionals. This goes some way to explaining why 1 in 3 UK businesses fail within the first three years. Equipping yourself with the necessary knowledge is an assured way of making sure you thrive, rather than becoming a start-up casualty.

If you’re someone with an engrained entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to help others achieve their fitness goals, the Level 3 Business Skills is perfectly tailored for you. The course is specifically designed to aide you in developing the critical knowledge, skills and confidence to manage your own tax, national insurance, marketing, promotions and pricing strategy. You’ll also work closely with one our support tutors to craft your very own bespoke business and marketing plan. Using this plan you’ll feel more than equipped to achieve your short, medium and long-term business objectives.

Course content

In order to keep things flexible for you, the course is delivered entirely through distance learning. There’s no need to spend time travelling to and from training venues, which frees you up to focus on mastering the content of the qualification.

Home study by no means suggests you’ll be isolated. We’ll supply you a comprehensive training manual, access to the online Learner Engagement System (LES) and extensive guidance and tuition from our dedicated support tutors.

The course itself includes the following modules:

  • Tax and National Insurance
  • Legal obligations of running a business
  • Brand management
  • Effective marketing skills and strategies
  • Generating leads and sales
  • Performance monitoring
  • Business planning
  • Financial management
  • Cash flow forecasting
  • Basic accounting

Assessment

Your initial requirement for the course is to complete some online multiple-choice assessments. Once complete, you’ll then work towards developing an achievable business plan. We will provide you with a template, and working with your support tutor, you’ll populate the plan with your vision and goals for a career in the fitness profession. You’ll also be required to complete a business and marketing workbook.

Prerequisites

As this course is primarily standalone, there are no formal perquisites. However, because the content is directed to those currently working in, or immediately looking to enter, the fitness industry, we recommend you’ve already obtained a Level 2 Fitness Instructor Qualification.

Accreditations

REPs 20

    Recently completed Level 2 Gym Instructor course at Manchester. I enrolled a few months in advance to give me time to get stuck into the online learning which was completed with ease.

    I have just completed my Exercise To Music course with HFE and I honestly can't fault them. I decided to go with HFE after doing lots of research into different ETM courses, however; the reason I chose them was because they had a course when I wanted, it was the cheapest and it was in a good location...

    All in all everything provided by HFE was excellent and I wholly recommend them to anyone who is thinking of approved REPs training.
