Level 2 Children's Fitness Qualification

Qualify as a Children’s Fitness Coach

Our courses have been developed by our dedicated team and Fit for Sport, based on research of childhood obesity and nutrition. We are proud that all of our courses are certified by the Association for Nutrition (AFN) and approved by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA). This qualification will provide you with the skillset and understanding to promote child health, enabling you to lead fitness sessions specifically designed for under 18s. Giving them the skills and know-how they need to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Why Gain a Children’s Fitness Qualification?

There is an array of opportunities available to you as a Children’s fitness instructor. This area is growing rapidly due to childhood obesity, food intolerances and an increase in eating disorders. Developed by Future Fit Training and Fit for Sport, we want to educate and enable you to help with this problem; to teach and encourage children why it’s important to lead a healthy life and, crucially, how to do this.

In the UK, there is a childhood obesity epidemic and an inconsistent approach, across a range of providers and sectors, to improve children’s health, fitness and activity levels. Childhood inactivity levels are clearly a contributing factor, with only 23% of boys and 20% of girls between the ages of five and 15 achieving the recommended guideline of 60 minutes of activity a day. Top contributing factors amongst the leisure industry, schools, and early year’s providers is a lack of knowledge and the resources to actively promote child health in their environment.

CIMSPA is working tirelessly to establish an agreed minimum standard to address the inconsistency and lack of guidance surrounding children’s fitness qualifications.
