“‘Excited’, ‘relieved’ and ‘in awe with the amazing experience and journey’ are just some of the emotions you will experience when you complete your personal training qualification”, says Master Trainer graduate and culinary superstar Hayden Quinn. If you are thinking about taking your first step into your career in fitness and becoming a Personal Trainer, Hayden Quinn has the scoop with what to expect while studying with The Institute, and offers his tips to get you through your studies!
WHAT ARE MY COACHES GOING TO BE LIKE?
“Whether you are studying online or face-to-face The Institute’s Coaches will make sure you have a FUN experience,” says Hayden. With a wealth of knowledge, and always going above and beyond to support your studies, the Coaches are always there to answer all of your questions.
SHOULD I STUDY ONLINE OR ON CAMPUS?
If you run a busy schedule like Hayden, The Institute’s online Master Trainer Program may suit you best, but be ready and committed to WORK HARD! You may find yourself studying late nights and weekends around your full time job, but it will all pay off when you have your certificates in your hands! Hayden’s tip: “If I could go back to the start of the course I would have told myself to get stuck in and finish it quicker!”
IS STUDYING GOING TO BE TOO MUCH WORK?
There is no need to stress about your workload, even if you choose to study online like Hayden, you get to put your newfound skills into practise at The Institute’s world class Campuses! “Being able to apply what you have learnt from the course and to come on Campus whenever you like as an online student is really great,” says Hayden, who adds that the staff are so friendly from the moment you walk in the door to when you leave.
DO I HAVE TO DO IT ALL ON MY OWN?
Getting yourself a study buddy is great for additional support and motivation while completing your Master Trainer ProgramTM. “Even when studying online there are opportunity to meet people so you can spitball ideas with your classmates - this is especially helpful when studying for assessments.”
HOW CAN I STAND OUT FROM OTHER PERSONAL TRAINERS?
Put in the hard yards and get MASTER TRAINER qualified! “Earning the Master Trainer qualification means that I am one step ahead of all the other trainers in this heavily populated industry! It is definitely something that I will look for when recruiting Personal Trainers for The Cube Gym, as do other gyms and studios.”
WHAT SHOULD I DO ONCE I GRADUATE?
Hayden’s advice: FIND A MENTOR - Someone who has a philosophy and a business in place that is similar to what you want to create. Try every gym and absorb as much knowledge as you can, and lastly, BE READY TO WORK HARD!
