Create your own career lifestyle in the fitness industry

Tuesday, 21 May 2019

When you have completed your Certificate IV in Fitness qualification, being a Personal Trainer is not the only way for you to enjoy a career in Fitness. There are so many other paths available to you! Many of our Fitness students have built their own niche in the industry, and have used their newly-developed skills and knowledge to create their own job and build a lifestyle that suits their own needs. Your imagination is the limit!

Working in the Fitness Industry allows you to improve yourself, to be your very best, while helping others to achieve. For example, as part of the Certificate IV in Fitness, you will complete business planning and marketing, as well as learning how to manage a small business, and how to conduct events in the sports, recreation and fitness industry. You will develop your own personal profile as part of the course, and take some time to identify the niche market that interests you. You will begin to work with clients and this will allow you to consolidate your planning as you complete more business units, and really take the step to turning your dreams into a business reality.

Options that you might think about could include setting up your own gym, or renting space in a current facility. You might consider working in the great outdoors – our region is home to an amazing array of parks and tracks – from plush council-maintained facilities to rugged bush and hillside tracks with the most inspiring views. You could have the banks of the mighty Murray River or distant mountain views in your Fitness class every day! Or you might set up your business as part of an existing franchise – or you might even be working in a related industry and gain the qualification to be able to offer fitness or nutritional advice to your existing clients.

But if you do want to be a Personal Trainer, then by building on the Certificate III in Fitness (Fitness Instructor level) and completing the Certificate IV in Fitness you will then have the qualification you need. And to help you achieve your goal, our Fitness teachers are qualified industry professionals themselves. They can provide you with the tools and time in practice and extensive hands-on learning opportunities to help you refine your skills and build confidence to be a leader in your practice of fitness programming and personal training. Our Fitness mentors are ready to work with you; they are empowered by those for a thirst to be great and more than happy to share their industry experience and passion!

Your midyear Fitness experience is waiting. Apply online for Certificate III in Fitness, commencing in July, or if you already have your Certificate III and want to build your skills to the next level, apply for the Certificate IV in Fitness and start in October.
