Blog post on becoming a personal trainer/ gym instructor

“Completing these two ITEC qualifications in gym instructing and personal training provides you with a strong, scientific knowledge of fitness, conditioning and exercise science. This course equips you to work across special populations (pregnancy, elderly etc.).  It provides a strong public-health focus that is the bedrock of the health and fitness industry, rather than focusing on current fads or trends, this course develops strong critical thinkers and effective practitioners. At the end of the ITEC Gym Instructor/Personal Trainer course you are ready to perform consultations, complete comprehensive needs analysis and deliver results-based interventions to your clients”.read more
