With obesity and other diseases linked to inactivity on the rise in Australia, the importance of fitness education and services are more essential than ever.
At the AIF, it is our mission to train our students to be Warriors against SeDs (Sedentary Death Syndrome) to activate the nation to stay fit and healthy. With exercise 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, so does the uptake of personal training services.
When we ask our students what they love most about their experience at the AIF, our Coaches continually rank as a standout 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 have many years experience working with a huge range of personal training clients, from elite sportspeople to those new to fitness, and many also present at fitness conventions and write for reputable fitness resources.
