Course Overview

Physical Activity sessions for Children, come in all shapes and sizes. It may be that you set up family boot camps, kids one to one sessions, teenage confidence-building classes, freelance in schools, or even your own private activity-focused birthday parties.

Regardless of the style of activity, at the heart of all these sessions is a promotion of health-related exercise for children.

If you are an L2 gym or fitness instructor (or more), you are able to teach one-to-one sessions and small group sessions with adults, however, you are not permitted to plan and deliver activity sessions for those under 16years.

This Children' Fitness qualification fulfills this gap in your knowledge and confidence to be able to plan and deliver safe and effective children's activity.

Our Level 2 Children's Fitness course is fully accredited by Active IQ and recognised by CIMSPA.

Meaning this qualification is recognised internationally.

This course is delivered via blended learning, which is a supporting and flexible approach to learning. It means you get a mix of intensive confidence-building attendance days, alongside homestudy tasks that can be completed at your pace.

Upon enrollment, you'll be allocated a tutor who will reach out immediately to introduce and orientate you with your course.

We'll combine home study with unlimited phone and email support, bespoke learning resources, & 2 practical attendance days at our Parallel Coaching Milton Keynes Academy.

Entry Requirements

To complete this course, you must already hold a Level 2 Gym or Fitness Instructor qualification.

If you don’t already have this, you can complete it alongside this qualification with our ''Level 2 Gym Instructor course'. Many of our learners complete the Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 2 Children's Fitness Course as a bundle package.

It's good to have a reasonable amount of experience in fitness. That could be in a gym, studio, home, or Bootcamp setting. You certainly don’t need to be an expert, although once you graduate as a Level 2 Children's Fitness instructor you'll be an expert.

What will you learn

How to plan activity for Children

It might seem straight forwards to plan activities for children... after all, it's just gameplay? or is it.

You'll learn the intricacies of planning, including:

✔ How to plan for 5-11 year olds
✔ How to plan for 12-16 year olds
✔ Timings and intensities
✔ Session structure
✔ Planning for individual variables amongst a group
✔ Adaptations and Progressions
✔ Warm Ups and Cool Downs

How to progress activity for Children

Children's exercise is often seen as a series of games.

However, these games should progress, the intensity should progress and you should be able to adapt this for each child within the larger group.

During the course, you'll learn how to logically progress an activity session for children, which includes finding the BEST intensity for each child and managing it.

By the end of the course, you'll feel confident in being able to manage multiple children, each working at different intensities to suit their own fitness levels, age, and needs.

You'll also learn how a children's activity session can be used for all components of fitness, including resistance, cardiovascular, flexibility, sport-specific, and motor skills.

Legal regulations and rules

There are many different rules and regulations that need to be considered when working with children.

As an outstanding Children's Fitness instructor, it is important you understand how to implement all of the following guidance.

We'll teach you about:
✔ Insurances
✔ Parental Consent
✔ Par-Q forms
✔ Group ratios
✔ CRB safety checks
✔ Health and Safety
✔ Risk Assessments
✔ Music Licenses

How to deliver a Children's Fitness

Delivering a group class is quite different from a 121 or small group session.

On the course, you'll gain the confidence to talk and coach in front of larger groups.

Plus learn the intricacies of voice projection, voice control, and pitch so you can relate to all of the children.

You'll also learn what to say, where to stand and move, how to progress individuals and control each session as a leader.

What's more, you'll learn numerous ways how to inject fun-based gameplay into any session. This helps build rapport and an eager tribe that comes back week after week.

Children's Activity business plan

It's vital you leave any of our courses with a clear route to get a solid return on your investment.

During the course, you'll have 2 lectures on "how to incorporate children's activity into your current fitness business"

and "How to start a children's fitness class fresh out the gates"

Many of our learners complete the children's fitness course whilst on their level 2 gym instructor or after their level 3 personal trainer qualification.

It's crucial you have clarity on your next step on how to get found, get clients and build a solid tribe of your own.

Adaptation and Considerations

You'll learn about the Child specific barriers and considerations you may face in your groups.

We'll teach you how to adapt your sessions to cater for these and also how to keep the sessions inclusive, including:
✔ Dyspraxia
✔ Learning Difficulties
✔ Autism
✔ Asthma
✔ Obesity
✔ Growth related injuries
✔ Gender and identity considerations
✔ and more

How you'll be assessed

The course is split into multiple units which are each assessed in a variety of theory and practical ways. Regardless of your learning style and speed, you’ll receive as much support as you need in order to pass this course.
