Kick-start your year with a Personal Training course

January 3, 2018

Did you know that the top two New Year’s resolutions are to lose weight and to eat healthier? While quitting smoking and getting a promotion/new career fall just behind.
Is it on your list to get healthier, join the gym or lose weight?
You’ve probably eaten your weight in chocolates and mince pies over this holiday season, and you think now is the time to do something about it.
So with that in mind, wouldn’t it be great if you could combining two of your resolutions in one…?
By enrolling on a personal training course, you would be able to get yourself fit and healthy (and get others fit and healthy), while starting a new career or working on the side.

Why should I become a personal trainer?

A personal trainer is a qualified professional with fitness and health knowledge in regard to prescription and instruction. They motivate their clients to better physical health by setting goals and targets to aim towards.
Clients like to be reassured that you are credible and know what you are talking about, so personal trainers need to be aesthetically fit. Although you may have the best knowledge and know what you are doing, your body will be your proof!
So not only will you be getting yourself fit and healthy, you will be helping others to do the same. AND getting paid to do so!

How will a personal training course help me?

To become a personal trainer, you will need a certified qualification and practical fitness knowledge. A personal training course will give you all the knowledge you need, as well as boost your CV and improve your employability.
Here at Open Study College, we have a variety of courses to accommodate many of these different sectors. Our courses are provided by Active IQ and offer a range of both theory and practical-based qualifications.
In addition, our distance learning courses are tailored to you. You can learn the theoretical aspects of the course while training on the side, getting yourself fit and healthy in the process.

What is Active IQ?

Active IQ is a leading organisation for vocational and active learning in the UK. It provides professionally designed qualifications that promote careers in the active leisure and wellbeing sectors from entry level to more advanced courses to suit all needs and requirements.
This certification will benefit you as a personal trainer as it is a widely recognised awarding body. Most personal trainers are self-employed and have a set of clients, so will need some credentials to reel them in. Depending on your stature, personal trainers can make between £30,000 and £70,000 a year!

Where do I start?

Don’t waste any more time; we are already 3 days into the new year!
That’s 3 days further away from your new healthy lifestyle, and your new career as a personal trainer.
