The nationally recognised Certificate IV in Fitness will give you the skills to teach and coach individual clients, or groups, to improve their general health and fitness through exercise. You will build on your existing skills in fitness-related activities, learning a variety of methods of using exercise to help your clients increase their fitness, grow their strength, lose weight, rehabilitate from minor injury and improve their general health and wellbeing. You will develop the skills to evaluate and re-evaluate clients' physical condition, and provide advice on how they should progress to increase their fitness. You will learn how to plan generic and unique fitness programs, how to instruct clients on achieving their goals, and how to keep abreast of current fitness trends and developments, equipment and techniques, as well as developing your management and administration skills. This course can be studied flexibly or as part of a Traineeship. Upon completion of the Certificate IV in Fitness, you will be able to work independently as a Freelance Personal Trainer or as part of a gym, or even at several fitness locations as a Fitness instructor or Personal Trainer.
