How is this course delivered?
As with all of our courses here at the Gym Unique Academy, this programme is delivered nationwide on a blended learning basis, meaning that it is partly delivered online and partly via in-person training days. Our courses here are delivered in such a way as to be suitable for those unable to commit to a full-time course of study. This enables learners to study in locations and at times to suit their specific requirements. Full support is available from a dedicated tutor seven days a week, with the use of technology and tools such as calls, emails and Skype seminars. We also offer training workshops at our centre, state-of-the-art training facility and classrooms. Finally, students will be invited to an assessment weekend, at which they will complete all of their theoretical and practical assessments before graduating as a fitness professional. Graduates then enter the career transition stage, at which they continue to benefit from training and mentoring from us, designed to assist them into their first role as a fitness instructor.
