Too often teenagers can be railroaded into thinking they need to complete GCSE’s to a certain standard to get ahead in life. Every child is different and those different children grow into different teenagers with different dreams, different ideas and values, and those differences apply to levels of educational attainment too. Educators and teachers have a duty to get their pupils to a certain academic level before they leave secondary school and it is essential that all children have equal access to education and the opportunity to reach their full potential. However, not every child is capable of achieving A* results not matter how hard they try. There’s the saying that if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree then it will spend its whole life believing it is stupid. At Fitness Training Solutions we think that’s a pretty decent saying.

School leavers probably don’t even think about the possibility of looking into gym instructor courses – despite many secondary schools being sports academies where students excel in the field of sports. Gym instructor courses are a fantastic opportunity for young people – they provide them with the courage to be their own boss, to earn a fantastic wage and to break the mould when it comes to leaving school and finding work. Gym instructor courses don’t result in a daily early morning commute on a packed tram into a heaving city centre where it’s a requirement to sit at a desk for eight hours a day every day. Gym instructor courses push you to be the best you can be, to make yourself better than you were the day before.

Gym instructor courses offered by us give students the Level 2 qualification they need to gain entry into the world of instructing. All the materials needed are provided including study books and all coursework dates. Students can then have instruction from one of our professionals and receive adequate tuition in preparation for all their assessments. School leavers are often fantastic for courses such as these because the routine of studying and taking assessments is fresh in their minds and they are used to taking in information. Gym instructor courses, once completed successfully, are a stepping stone to career advancement. Further careers are varied, for example students can progress onto gym supervisor roles, fitness training class instructors, personal trainers, or even gym management roles. The gym instructor courses offered by us encompass many aspects of the career including understanding fundamentally human anatomy and physiology, how each component in the body behaves and reacts to exercise, customer service and client relationships, health and safety, safeguarding clients, managing gym equipment, understanding and implementing varied fitness training for a range of people including the elderly, people with disabilities, children over the age of fourteen and pregnant women, and much more.

Our gym instructor courses are a great way for school leavers to create their own work/life balance and of course, starting your career early is never a bad thing!
