Certificate III in Fitness (SIS30321)

What can you do with a Cert 3 in Fitness?

This qualification reflects the role of group and gym fitness instructors.

As a fitness instructor you may plan and deliver group exercise sessions and develop gym-based programs for individuals where the level of personalised instruction and ongoing client monitoring is limited. You will work in predictable environments under general supervision.

This qualification provides a pathway to work as a fitness instructor in settings such as fitness facilities, gyms, and leisure and community centres.

Group Exercise Sessions

Specialising in group exercise instruction provides you with the skills and knowledge that you need in helping a group of individuals with varying ages and fitness levels do a set of exercises. You will also learn how to instruct and demonstrate exercise sessions to groups of clients that have limited individual interaction.

Gym Based Programs

If you decide to work as a gym instructor, you will need to learn how to provide an individually designed client assessment, provide technique correction when needed, and develop and demonstrate fitness programs. You will also be taught how to supervise a facility or service, maintain the cleanliness and tidiness of gym equipment.
