What does it mean to Fast Track my fitness career & how do I do it?

If you’ve been doing your research on fitness courses, there’s a good chance you will have come across the term “Fast Track” by now. Before we go on, we’ll just make sure you understand exactly what that means!

Fast Tracking your fitness studies means you can compress the time you spend on your fitness courses, while graduating with the same knowledge and qualifications required to become a fitness professional. This option is extremely popular with Academy of Fitness students, particularly if they are wanting to make a quick and dramatic career change, not wanting to spend years trying to make the transition.

Why should I Fast Track my fitness course?

It’s pretty simple, really… The quicker you get qualified, the quicker you can start getting on-the-job experience and earning money as a personal trainer! While it’s extremely important to get a solid education and understanding of the fitness industry through formal education, you won’t become an amazing personal trainer until you start being one. Our advice to you is set a goal for when you want to graduate and one for when you want to start working in the industry and just go for it! Our job at Academy of Fitness is to help you reach those goals, so don’t be afraid to ask us for help!

How does “fast tracking” work at Academy of Fitness?

We have set up our Academy of Fitness courses to accommodate just about anyone! Aside from our flexible payment options, you can also:

– Choose your location – Australia, overseas, it doesn’t matter!
– Choose your timeframe – An 8 week sprint or 10 month fun run… YOU set the pace.
– Choose your study mode – 100% online or come to our Coorparoo Campus for workshops!

Set a goal for when you want to graduate and one for when you want to start working in the industry and just go for it!

Practical Component:

Option 1:

At your local or home gym

Perfect if your schedule or location makes coming to our campus a bit too difficult!
To take part in the practical component from your local or home gym, you’ll demonstrate the skills and knowledge that you picked up from your Academy of Fitness Online Learning Platform by videoing yourself conducting several fitness activities. Don’t worry, we’ll give you all the information you need to complete the activities quickly and easily. You don’t need any special video equipment either – just a smartphone with video will do the trick! If you’re having any trouble with this, you can access daily online tutorial assistance from your allocated tutor at no extra cost.

Option 2:

If you can attend 4 x workshops at our fully equipped, state of the art educational facility in Queensland (other states are coming soon – watch this space!) we highly recommend it! Each workshop is delivered by our incredible and highly qualified educators who have tons of practical experience within the fitness industry (seriously – we’re very picky!). Workshops are rolled out continuously throughout the year, so you’re sure to find dates that are convenient for you.
