Intro

Many studies have concluded that the average UK adult spends more than 90% of their time indoors, coupled with many clients now opting to exercise away from the gym, health club or fitness studio, a need has emerged for fitness professionals to be more effectively educated in order to take exercise outside.

There are many advantages and differences to outdoor training, over indoors, and the Level 3 Outdoor Training Award is designed to give you a clear and tangible edge over your fellow competitors and trainers. Despite its popularity, there are currently many professionals delivering outdoor services without the necessary specialist training or qualifications. If something were to go wrong with one of their clients then it could be detrimental to their future career, that’s why this course and the content it teaches are so important.

This course will enable you to start your own running club, launch a bootcamp, or simply deliver regular personal training sessions outside. You’ll also learn vital health and safety information, various exercise routines, and effective workout planning methods.

Course content

Comprising of four weeks home study and a two day intensive practical outdoor training and assessment, the course will teach you:

  • Dynamic warm-ups and cool-downs
  • Assessing the heath and safety risk of working outdoors
  • Walking for exercise prescription
  • Ethical considerations for working outside of the gym
  • Planning safe and effective programmes
  • Small portable equipment exercise techniques
  • Bodyweight exercise techniques
  • Assessing the risks of working in different environments

Assessment

Initially you are required to complete a range of assessments via our secure online learning platform, and these will ensure you are prepared for your course. You will also need to complete a session plan/programme card specifically for the outdoor training environment – this is the session you will deliver to a fellow student or group of students.

Lasting approximately 45 minutes, it will be structured as follows:

  • Warm up
  • Cardiovascular training component
  • Resistance training component
  • Cool-down and flexibility

Prerequisites

A Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification is required to participate on this course; this can be a gym-based or group exercise qualification.

If you haven’t achieved your Level 2, or are currently working towards it, you’re still eligible to enrol on the course, but you will not be able to become certified at Level 3 until the Level 2 prerequisite has been met.

    I have recently finished my L2+3 combined qualification in gym instructing and personal training. I thought this course was excellent, all of the staff at HFE are friendly, encouraging and most of all motivating. They really help you through your distance learning and provide webinars for you to attend.

    An excellent training company that offer outstanding courses at great value for money. Yoga course material is very good. Lots of support straight from signing up. Nothing too much trouble. Course weekends were thoroughly enjoyable and I gained lots of knowledge from the tutors with lots of support between training sessions.

    I took my level 2 gym course and level 3 PT course with HFE. The tutors there were super supportive with an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of training and nutrition.
