Make exercise inclusive for every bodyEnquire today
A sought-after qualification that promotes inclusion and enables you to safely and effectively work with disabled clients.
Recent reports have revealed that 1 in 5 people in the UK has a disability, which equates to around 19% of the total population. It’s also estimated that only 18% of disabled adults undertake physical activity for more than 30 minutes a week, compared to 38% of non-disabled adults. It’s clear that more can be done and as an industry, we all have an obligation to see that changes are made.
Our Level 3 Award in Programming and Supervising Exercise for Disabled Clients, or simply Level 3 Exercise for Disabled Clients, is designed specifically to help fitness professionals be difference-makers. It’s an essential qualification for those looking to better serve an increasingly unrepresented special population.
This Level 3 course provides a great progression route for those who have achieved a Level 2 qualification (Exercise to Music or Gym Instructor). It’s also a valuable CPD opportunity for personal trainers, Pilates instructors, yoga teachers and other fitness professionals to greatly expand the scope of who they can work with.
The course is fully accredited by YMCA Awards and it’s recognised by CIMSPA. It’s also accredited by the Inclusive Fitness Initiative (IFI) which is important if you’re an organisation also looking to become accredited as the staff working in your fitness facility require this qualification.
For complete flexibility, the entirety of this course can be completed from the comfort of your own home. You won’t be alone by any means as we provide a range of innovative learning resources including email and phone support from a dedicated tutor, 24/7 access to our online learning system LES and bespoke hard copy and digital manuals.
This Level 3 Award is more than just a qualification, it’s a career enhancer. It will allow you to work a wider client base, while making you considerably more adaptable, marketable and versatile. Working with disabled clients will also prove to be an incredibly worthwhile and rewarding experience.

"HFE is the ultimate fitness training provider, without a doubt their personal training courses are the best in the industry."
"The course has really helped me to better understand yoga so that I can improve my performance and remain World No. 1"
"HFE have produced some of the best materials I have seen in education."
"HFE is the most professional and cutting edge fitness provider I have ever seen."
I have completed a whole range of courses with HFE and their professionalism in delivery and support has been outstanding. They set and maintain the standards I would expect for the fitness industry and there are no 'easy passes'.
I recently completed the Level 3 Mat Pilates Course, I really enjoyed the course but there is a lot to fit in so make sure you have plenty of time to study, particularly the anatomy and physiology. The support from HFE is excellent you have a tutor you can call for help there are webinars plus all the online information and manuals.
From the moment I began my training with HFE I enjoy my learning. I'm self-employed as a teacher in schools so I work in the evenings planning and was worried I would struggle with the time commitments. The tutor assured me right from the start that I would be fine and set manageable deadlines for me to complete my home study work in.
I just enrolled with HFE by recommendation of a friend to do the ETM course. All went very quickly and very professionally. The lady who enrolled me was very nice and I'm looking forward to do my course with HFE.
