2 Days Face-To-Face

You'll join us for 2 days in our Milton Keynes Academy.

Each face-to-face day has 4 workshops where we'll go between the classroom and the gym.

There's very little sitting around with 80% of each day being practical based.

The practial workshops are not a test of your own fitness or what you can do.

Rather it's a time to practice coaching and learn how to be an outstanding Childen's fitness instructor.

Below is an overview of what to expect:

Attendance Day 1:

On the first day of your Level 2 Childen's Fitness Instructor course, we'll learn the how to structure safe and effective sessions for 5-11 and 12-16 years olds. We'll explore the various risks that come with each session, how planning differs from training adults and provide a simple planning format that takes no-time at all and removes any overwhelm.

What's more we'll experience dozens of games and exercise ideas for both age groups. Here you'll break down any barriers to engaging in your children's fitness classes and have a go at introducing and coaching them.

Attendance Day 2:

On the second day we'll boost your coaching confidence and supercharge your children's fitness planning. You'll learn how to plan, adapt and deliver safe sessions in a variety of environments including the outdoors, studios, classrooms and community spaces. What's more we'll cover all the legalisties, rules and regulation that must be considered when working with younger age-groups.

We also deep dive into "Children's considerations" including childhood obesity, growth related condiditons, and the various learning needs that a child could have, such as dyspraxia and autism.

The afternoon culminates with lots more practical and coaching. This way you leave the 2-day course confident and competant to complete your post course practical assessment. The details of your practical are below.

We've qualified over 1000 Children's Fitness Instructors since 2010. We look forward to you being the next one.
