Proficiency Award 3 in Fitness Science VRE024

  • Learn about the science of human fitness
  • Develop solid foundation skills for a lifelong career in fitness or a related industry
  • Start any time, study at your own pace under a team of university trained and experienced professionals

The fitness industry is huge, and increasingly sophisticated.
Generations past would attend fitness classes at gyms that were manned by instructors who had limited education and experience. Today's leaders in the fitness industry are increasingly a very different breed though - entrepeneurial businessmen with a sound understanding of exercise science and thousands of hours of  formal education in human biology, health and exercise science. This course is designed to distinguish you from the average fitness professional, and equip you with the knowledge and skills that tomorrows fitness professional needs.

While many people enter the fitness industry by doing a short fitness leaders certificate; the entry level course is often relatively short, and the jobs available to such graduates are often relatively low paid, and with limited opportunity for advancement. This course will set you apart from lesser trained fitness professionals.
