Course programme

The fact remains that most fitness programmes are organized and run outside of
the schools and that most fitness instructors and leaders in these programmes have little
training. People want to exercise in a way that provides no medical risk and also
ensures that they reach their fitness goals quickly. This requires some experience,
which is what certification is meant to ensure. With the fitness industry growing so
rapidly, it becomes increasingly important that persons at all levels in the industry have
specific training to do their jobs competently.
