Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing – Gym Based

Are you looking to start a career in the Fitness Industry? Perhaps you want to work in a gym or become a Personal Trainer? Then our Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification is the starting point for you. As a Gym Instructor your job will require you to be an ambassador for your club. You will often be the first impression for a new member and often a role model for younger people. This is a vital position and one that gives you the opportunity to kick-start a change in someone’s health and well-being. As their Gym Instructor you could be setting client programmes whilst demonstrating safe and effective exercise techniques. However, the role involves much more than this and that is where Train Together are ideally placed to ensure you reach your full potential with our Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification.

Alongside expert training, you are given the added bonus of being able to work alongside your tutors, assessors and the staff at the Train Together Functional Fitness Studio in Lancaster. During these periods you can practice your technique and teaching skills with the help and guidance of the staff, as well as covering any areas of concern from the units. This will also give you real world feedback from our own gym clients which is invaluable work experience.

Am I right for this course?

This course is aimed at anyone looking to gain their Gym Instructor qualification and start a career working within a health and fitness facility. This may be a hotel, sports club, small gymnasium or large sports centre. You may be just leaving education and looking for your first job or perhaps you have been involved in fitness for a long time and have decided that working within the industry is for you. As well as being their “instructor” you will become a mentor and motivator for those days when training seems too much like hard work. If you are determined to follow a healthy lifestyle and want to encourage others to follow then this award is for you. The Gym Instructor qualification is only the beginning of your career. If you wish to become a Level 3 Personal Trainer you can incorporate this training with your Level 2 Gym Instructor qualification at a greatly reduced price.

How is it delivered and how long will it take?

The Gym Instructor qualification consists of a 6 day tuition lead course, spread over 3 weekends, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 5pm. The weekends are 4 weeks apart so you have the option of attending the gym for practice and advice. If this is not possible you will have been given contact numbers and emails for the tutors who will return your call within 12 hours. The course contents will be covered during your 6 days tuition but you will be expected to have worked through the manuals before attendance.

Are there any examinations or assessments?

There are 2 multiple choice examinations. You will also be continuously assessed on practical elements during the course with a final practical assessment on the last day.

Is this a recognised course?

Yes, the award is accredited and recognised as a Central YMCA Qualification (CYQ). You will also be able to register with REP’s at Level 2 and gain 20 CPD points.

Do I receive a Certificate if successful?

Yes you will be issued with a Level 2 Fitness Instructing – Gym Based Exercise Certificate.

Are there any pre-requisites?

The only mandatory criteria we set is that you must be aged 16 or over at commencement of the course. You will find it beneficial to have a reasonable level of fitness and to have good written and communication skills due to the nature of the assessments and examinations.
