Our fitness educators
Being a PT doesn’t give you the skills to be an educator. It is our choice to use qualified and experienced fitness professionals who are trained to be VET teachers. Why? Because quality fitness education is the core value of our academy.
- Currently work in the fitness industry in some capacity. We employ trainers, business development managers and group instructors to make sure our content reflects current industry practice.
- All our trainers hold a diverse range of degrees ranging from university to the certificates they are delivering. We ensure they have been in your shoes.
We don’t rely on PT’s to judge whether or not you are competent at a skill as they are not familiar with the requirements to determine an individual’s competence from an educational perspective and the elements listed in the national training package for this qualification.
Our graduates recommend us!
The Academy has a fantastic number of referrals from graduates within the industry as they have studied with us and know we deliver industry leading fitness education. When asked the reason our graduates refer their friends, family or colleagues to the Academy is that we did not make them feel like just another number, with fantastic personalised study and payment options.
There are no sleazy sales techniques.
We don’t need to talk to you on the phone to give you the information you are after. We have learnt in our 16+ years in operation that getting hounded by sales people is not the best impression for someone looking to make the jump in to the fitness industry. We answer your questions on your terms to give you the information you need to make the decision to study an easy one.
Our courses are designed on current industry practice giving you the best start in the industry!
We chose not to sensationalise the fitness industry and certainly don’t suggest to students they can become wealthy as a personal trainer in the first few years. Our curriculum provides an honest evaluation of the fitness industry and exposes students to the reasons why some trainers are successful and why others are not. We do the best we can to prepare our student for the reality of working in the personal training and fitness industry and the real world situations that are faced on a day to day basis.
