Our recognized Fitness Instructor Certificate is aimed at creating new group leaders in gym-based exercise, who are qualified to instruct, supervise and impact the health and well-being of clients throughout all aspects of coaching.
This qualification will provide your clients with the assurance that you have the knowledge, competencies and skills that meet internationally-agreed fitness and health industry standards. As such, this certification opens the door to both local and global employment opportunities within a variety of sectors, ranging from gyms, health and leisure clubs, or freelancing.
Learners will gain an in-depth understanding of the core principles of exercise, gym-based instruction as well as health and safety regulations, which will establish a high professional competency level that allows independent design and delivery of effective fitness instruction in the context of gym-based exercise.
Note that the IFA Level 2 Fitness Instructor Certificate is also a pre-requisite to enroll in the advanced IFA Level 3 Personal Trainer Certificate.
Learners will delve into comprehensive study of the following 6 units:

Who is this course for?
This course is designed for learners looking for a comprehensive introduction to the principles of health and fitness, therefore we require little to no prior experience as an instructor. However, it is highly recommended to gain some experience of gym-based exercise including machine and free weights prior to course entry.
Note that the course requires physical activity and individual participation, thus a degree of physical fitness is an advantage. You will also need to engage in elements of communication (discussion, presentation, reading, and writing) that require an adequate level of English language skills.
