The Benefits of Our Master Trainer Fitness Course

With obesity and other diseases linked to inactivity on the rise in Australia, the importance of fitness education and services are extremely essential now more than ever.

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.

Personal training is no longer seen as a luxury service and as the fitness industry continues to grow, the uptake of personal training services has never been greater!

When we ask our students what they love most about their experience at the Australian Institute of Fitness, 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.
