Level 2 Fitness Instructing
This exercise for older adults course is an exciting CPD opportunity for qualified trainers and instructors who want to make their skills and expertise inclusive to a wider range of clients, helping to improve the health and quality of life of older adults.
Our Level 3 Exercise for Older Adults is designed to help fitness professionals upskill as well as gain new knowledge and the necessary skills to make a real difference in peoples’ lives. Ultimately, you’ll develop an understanding of the ageing process and how exercise can be used to improve quality of life.
This course is primarily delivered through home study, although you will have the option to attend one of our training venues to complete the theory assessment. Alternatively this theory test can be completed and invigilated online with the added bonus of receiving your provisional exam results straight away.
Aside from the qualification entry requirements, students should have a positive attitude towards working with older clients and be able to adopt a caring, patient and empathetic approach.
In order to enrol onto this training course, you must already possess a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instruction – either gym-based or group exercise. Those with a Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates or a Level 3 Yoga Teacher qualification are also eligible.
