Personal Training Diploma (Level 2 and 3 Combined)
The Level 2 is the industry minimum to be able to work in most leisure centres. The Level 2 course ensures that you understand the health and safety with regards to a gym environment and the laws and procedures to follow including the importance of Data Protection. You will also begin to understand how to collect relevant information from clients to be able to plan an effective session. An introduction to Anatomy & Physiology will help you to understand the structure of the body and systems and in turn, this will help you to plan your sessions effectively. You will learn how to decide what exercises to include in session and how to plan and teach an effective warm up, main session and cool down for clients. On completion of this course, you will progress on to your Level 3.
The Level 3 is the industry minimum to be able to work in gyms as a Personal Trainer. The Level 3 is based around creating an 8 week program rather than an individual session for a client. We build on your previous knowledge of Anatomy & Physiology to include more detail but also help you understand the energy systems of different athletes and methods of training. You will learn how to utilise advanced training techniques such as pyramids, Drop sets and Interval Training specific to your client. Alongside this we begin to develop your knowledge of nutrition and how this can be used alongside a training program to enable your clients to get the most out of their program
You can choose to this all online with support from one of our tutors or you can decide to opt for our blended learning option which is as the online but also includes 4 days of practical application (2 for Level 2 and 2 for Level 3) gym based work as well as your practical assessments in our own high end gym.
