A Certificate III in Fitness is the minimum requirement to work as a gym instructor in Australia. Fit Education offers a comprehensive learning package for the full Certificate III, which prepares you for a challenging job in the fitness industry.
Certificate IV in Fitness is the industry standard to become a Personal Trainer anywhere in Australia. The Fit Education course provides the perfect framework to become an outstanding personal trainer with the right credentials.
This course helps you gain valuable, practical experience from strength and conditioning professionals. We will teach you how to understand the requirements of working with athletes and teams, and how to inspire your own students.
A Certificate II in Sport and Recreation allows you to work as a Community Coach or Recreation Assistant. You can also use this course to start your sport coaching career, as it includes general coaching units and fundamental motor coaching skills.
The team at Fit Education have worked with many professional sporting teams, including the Australian Wallabies, Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Reds, Brisbane Bullets, North Qld Cowboys, London Irish Rugby, London Broncos, Bordeaux Beagles, and Fulham Football Club. In addition, we consult to many corporate clients and secondary schools on a range of health & fitness topics.
"Perhaps the best attribute of the course was its flexibility. Often I had the choice of ‘at home’ or ‘in the classroom’ studies. In particular Steve’s first-rate, hands-on knowledge proved invaluable to my learning experience. I would recommend the course to anyone seeking a career in the fitness industry."
"The Fit Education course was a great opportunity for me to gain experience and learn new things about the fitness industry. The teaching team has a great theoretical basis, as well as years of experience."
"Working close by to Fit Education has been great for our staff. Being able to get up from the desk and go do some training makes the day more enjoyable and we are a fitter bunch for it."
"The learning outcomes exceeded my expectations, thanks to examples from Steve Nance’s career, the facilities, and the full gym on offer. I have now secured a full-time personal trainer position at Jetts Fitness, Taringa, as well as creating my own personal training business, Equipt Personal Training."
"I just wanted to say thanks again for helping to achieve my qualifications. You all made it such a rewarding and enjoyable experience. I have never done a study before where I actually looked forward to showing up every day. I love working in the industry and helping people to achieve their goals and dreams."
"I looked around but decided to go with Fit Education because of the price, the reputation and experience. The course was extremely informative and the staff was very supportive throughout the course. Thanks to Fit Education, I believe I now have the necessary skills to enter the Fitness industry and to become a successful Personal Trainer who will get results for my clients."
"The Wallabies strength and aerobic fitness was far superior to any other international team at that time and this proved to be our competitive edge over all our opponents. Fit Education's careful planning of our training over the three years ensured we peaked for the most important test matches."
"We all commenced at a relatively similar level of fitness and have progressed together. The group introduces a competitive and social dynamic to training which helps motivate me to keep going. I have lost about 10kg since commencing and in a recent exercise stress test I completed, I rated in the top 20% fitness range for my age. I generally feel a lot more active now and even look forward to the intense exercise sessions!"
"The team at Fit Education has an outstanding professional expertise. In their role as strength and conditioning coach with the Wallabies, they were dedicated in their pursuit of improved results and attitudes within the team. They achieved this and it was instrumental in contributing to certain cultural changes in Australian rugby."
"It is a little over 6 months since my first session with you all at Fit Education and I want to say thanks for all your help in that time. When I started I was 132.5 kgs in weight and would be short of breath tying up my shoe laces. After having a previous boss of mine suggest that I shouldn't allow myself to be defined by my weight I thought I would bite the bullet and do something about it. You all made me feel welcome and the rest of the crew that trains at Fit Education were a good bunch as well. Even though my lifestyle of corporate lunches make the job of losing weight very challenging, your variety of tailored programs have seen me drop 20 kilos and I can- go for a 5 km jog without passing out."
