It doesn’t matter whether you’re fresh out of school, growing a little tired of your nine-to-five desk job or have long had your eyes on a career in health and fitness – when you enrol in a course at Onfit Training College, you may not have any idea what to expect.
Actually making the decision to steer your career towards something that you’ll really take pride and gratification from, such as becoming a personal trainer, is a big step for anyone, especially if you aren’t too sure what’s in store for you. Let’s take a look at how joining one of our health and fitness courses can change your life and aspirations for the better.
A varied way of learning
At Onfit, we’re not just some run-of-the-mill college that will just teach you the basics of becoming a personal trainer before leaving you out to dry. Rather, we adopt what we call an ‘entrepreneurial’ approach, so that you’ll learn the finer points of the business side of the health and fitness industry.
Our health and fitness courses can change your life and career aspirations for the better.
This will give you the insider knowledge necessary to stand out from the crowd when it comes to landing your dream job after graduating. The life of a personal trainer, first and foremost, is about helping clients reach their health goals, but an understanding of how the business side of things work is also a priceless advantage.
That’s not to say that the physical training aspects of your Certificate III in Fitness, Certificate IV in Fitness or Diploma of Fitness will take a backseat as you learn with us. Our courses includes in-depth explanations and detail on the technical aspects of training. Our tutors have near-countless years of experience as both trainers and educators, so you’ll be in qualified, knowledgeable hands throughout your course.
With us, you’ll discover just how to configure each of your training programs to fit the needs of any potential client that comes your way. This can range from those looking to lose weight, get in shape for a half marathon, children, or people with special needs. On top of that, you’ll discover how to best manage injuries and other conditions that may affect your approach to a particular client’s needs.
Starting your course
We focus on making your course engaging, so you’ll stay motivated, even if you’re not used to studying. You’ll have your own online profile, so you can access your course and additional resources, whenever you want to. Everything you need to study will be on your profile for you. Progressing through your course is as simple as working your way through the lessons, which include videos, diagrams, and interactive slides.
Our assessments, like our courses, are designed with you in mind. For example, our automated marking which gives you instant feedback, so it won’t slow you down while you study. We know how important the practical component of our fitness courses are, and no course would be complete without making sure you’re ready to start training clients in the real world. We’ve made our practical requirements super flexible, and involve both work placement and video assessments. You can complete both of these requirements without coming into a campus, but you will need access to a gym, which we can help with!
Another key part of studying with us is working with our friendly, experienced team, who are there to help you every step of the way. Our tutors are at your disposal and if you’re working 9-5, no worries – our support extends after hours and on weekends. We offer a variety of ways to ask for assistance, so you can choose what works best for you.
How are the courses at Onfit structured?
Some people who have been out of education for a few years may believe that college life is rigid, strict and inflexible, but that assumption couldn’t be further from the truth. Our online fitness courses allow students to complete their learning from the comfort of their own home, with no obligation to attend college each day. At Onfit Training College, you can learn at your own pace, in any place you choose. This means that you get out of the course what you put in – students that really knuckle down can complete all of their modules ahead of time, whilst others go at a more measured speed. It’s completely up to you!
Your time at Onfit Training College will serve you wonderfully when it comes to your first job search upon graduation – indeed, you may even have landed yourself a position even before your course is complete.
