Do you dream of being a part of the fitness movement? Keen to coach and inspire others to be their fittest selves – and live a long, healthy and prosperous life? Or maybe you just want to learn the ropes for yourself.
Whatever your intentions, a sport and fitness course will be worth its weight in gold!
Why should I study a fitness course?
Fitness is a fascinating field that can take you anywhere. You could work on an island, teaching holidaymakers in paradise. You could run training sessions on a cruise ship, at a gym, outdoors in a group boot camp, in your own home, at clients’ homes, schools, community centres…there really is no limit to where a fitness course can take you.
Many people study sport and fitness courses for a career change. Their current work is simply unsatisfying, and they want to work with a purpose, helping people see reach results and reach meaningful milestones. Others want to take charge of their career, to run their own business and even release online fitness courses of their own!
Of course, you don’t have to turn your fitness studies into a career. You could simply satiate your thirst for knowledge about the body and how to reach peak physical fitness – and then share those skills with family and friends.
What fitness courses should I study?
In Australia, we are lucky to have a feast of fitness course options on offer. Most people who want to learn sports and fitness will embark on a Certificate III or IV in Fitness.
Some providers will allow you to bundle both certifications, boosting your employment opportunities and education.
Once you have a Certificate III or IV in Fitness under your belt, you are a fully qualified gym instructor and are ready to work in almost any capacity. And best of all, most fitness course providers offer online and distance education – so you can get your qualification when and where it suits you.
Want to take your aptitude even further? Then why not study a Bachelor of Health Science, majoring in Exercise, Fitness, Dance or Sport? There are fitness training providers that offer this advanced option. Not only will you learn all about fitness and training, you’ll also gain an in-depth understanding of biology and biomedical science. This means both practical and theoretical training.
Such a qualification will really help you shine in the industry – and provide greater awareness of the intricate internal systems of the human body and how best to work with them for optimum health and fitness.
Now you’re warmed up, take a step towards your new career in fitness and sport.
