Latest from the School of Personal Training
Future Fit School of Personal Training launched back in March and it's been a busy couple of months with a host of new projects underway. Read more below.
For those of you who haven't had a chance to explore the new website yet, there's already plenty of useful resources here to support you in your fitness career, with more being added all the time.
We have a series of guides and articles with advice on getting started as a personal trainer and if you're wondering what opportunities are available with the major health clubs and gyms, our Careers page has an ever-growing directory telling you what they all offer. Many companies offer preferential interviews to School of PT graduates so make sure you mention us when you apply!
We also have a few new courses. These are included in our Advanced Diploma Personal Training depending on which specialist track you choose, but you can also do them as CPD courses. There's Pre and Post Natal Exercise for those of you looking to work within this niche market, Suspended Equipment Training if you want to get certified in one of the most popular forms of resistance training around, and our unique Integrated Equipment Training course. Whether you're running boot camps, small group or personal training sessions, being able to apply advanced training concepts to a variety of equipment will make your sessions effective, diverse and most importantly of all enjoyable. Not only that but you'll be able to build a huge toolbox of exercises with your newfound creativity!
All being well this summer will be a great one for health and fitness, with the public inspired by last year's Olympics to get more active it'll be a fantastic opportunity to channel their motivation into fun and engaging exercise programmes.
Let us know what you're planning for your clients and if you need any tips or advice be sure to ask on our Facebook page.
I'll be sharing some news of yet more exciting new developments in the School of PT very soon, so keep an eye out!
