Level 2 Certificate: Gym Instructing

The aim of this qualification is to develop the knowledge and skills of learners so they can engage, facilitate, educate and support clients in a gym or health club environment. On successful completion of this qualification learners will be able to seek employment and perform competently as a Level 2 Gym Instructor.

What will I learn?

  • Anatomy and physiology including:
    – the heart and circulatory system
    – the respiratory system
    – structure and function of the skeleton
    – musculoskeletal system

    – the nervous and energy systems and their relation to exercise
  • Principles of working in the gym environment, including customer service and how to maintain health, safety and welfare
  • How to conduct consultations and promote the health benefits of physical activity
  • How to communicate with clients effectively, and motivate clients to adhere to an exercise programme
  • The skills and knowledge required to plan and prepare a gym-based exercise programme with apparently healthy adults – both individuals and groups. This may include young people in the 13-18 age range, provided they are part of a larger adult group and older adults (50 plus)

Are there any entry requirements?
