Frequently Asked Questions

Studying fitness allows you to pursue your passion by turning your commitment to health into an inspired and highly flexible career.

Find meaningful employment as a personal trainer or coach or start your own business and help your clients through tremendous transformations, both physically and mentally, as you motivate them to be the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves.

We offer a range of fitness and sports courses to suit your needs, whether you want to specialise in group fitness, aquatics or personal training. The Certificate III in Fitness (Gym Instructor) or Certificate IV in Fitness will help you step up with confidence.

Our fitness courses help you to become a motivating, empowering and qualified professional. You’ll learn about human anatomy, how to plan and instruct programs for individuals, and how to get the best results for your clients with tailored diet plans.

You’ll also learn to collaborate with medical and allied health professionals, promote healthy living, and walk every step of the way with your clients as they achieve transformational results.

As the adage says, do something you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life. Start your dream career in fitness as a:

  • Personal training manager

Inspire people to live their best lives with a TAFE NSW Certificate III in Fitness. You’ll build strong foundations as you tailor fitness plans to positively influence lives.

There is no better time to step into the fitness industry and help people on their journey. Working in the fitness industry is not a typical career. Every day brings new and exciting challenges as you follow the beat of your own drum and meet people who are equally as committed to making health a priority.
