Class details

The Fitness Instructor personally guides the exerciser in personal or small-scale group sessions. His role is to ensure not only the guidance of a safe workout and the exercise supervision, but also the design of programs for healthy adults in the muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise rooms.

An Instructor delivers fitness instruction to individuals with the use of equipment (Fitness Instructor) or to a group through fitness classes (Group Fitness Instructor). Both types of the occupation have the same purpose and require the same level of knowledge, skills and competences. Therefore most of the requirements are the same for both occupation types.
