The Benefits of Our Fitness Instructor Course
With many Australians living longer than ever before, plus an increase in conditions such as diabetes and obesity, it’s clear there’s a growing need for health and fitness services.
At The Institute, it is our mission to train our students to be Warriors against SeDs (Sedentary Death Syndrome) to activate a nation to stay fit and healthy. As exercise is now widely recognised as both a pre-habilitative solution and a rehabilitative solution for chronic lifestyle diseases more Doctors are prescribing exercise to their clients, increasing the demand for highly skilled PTs.
Our Fitness Instructor Coaches
When we ask our students what they love most about their experience at The Institute, our Coaches continually rank as a stand out feature of the course. We believe this is one of the reasons our students regularly score our course experience at over 9 out of 10.
Our highly qualified team of Coaches bring passion and commitment to their teaching, ensuring all areas of learning are delivered in a fun and engaging way.
They love to share their passion for the fitness industry, and impart their knowledge and expertise in a way that students can relate to.
