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 circuit instructor.

Below is an overview of what to expect:

Attendance day 1:

On the first day of your Level 2 Circuit Training Instructor course, we'll dive into diverse approaches for structuring circuit workouts. You'll learn various circuit layouts and delivery styles, including a commander-style (HIIT) workout, satellite circuits, and call-out circuits plus more.

Learn how to make group classes fun and inspiring by adding game play and challenges. Understand how to plan a safe and effective circuit session. Throughout day 1 you'll practice coaching in small groups and build your confidence gradually. There are no assessments on day 1.

Attendance day 2:

On the second day we'll boost your coaching confidence and supercharge your circuit planning. You'll learn how to plan, adapt and deliver circuit sessions in a variety of environments including the outdoors, studios, gyms and community spaces. More so, you'll discover how to achieve a full-body circuit workout with minimal to no equipment.

The afternoon culminates with your practical assessment... You'll deliver a planned circuit session to a small group of your peers on course. This will consist of a warm-up, main section and cool down. You wont start your pracitcal assessment without a clear plan and it's our job to get you ready, competent and confident. We gaurantee you to pass and the group comradery on course is electric.

We've qualified over 1000 circuit instructors since 2010. We look forward to you being the next one.

Entry Requirements

To complete this course, you must already hold a Level 2 Gym 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 Circuits 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 Circuit instructor you will be.

What will you learn

How to plan a circuit

It might seem straight forwards to plan a circuit.. after all, it's just a series of exercises? or is it.

You'll learn the intricacies of planning, including:

✔ Warm Ups for small and large groups
✔ Main section layouts and designs
✔ Exercise order and training systems
✔ Approaches to timings
✔ Monitoring group intensity
✔ How to challenge individuals in a groups setting
✔ How to adapt, progress and regress circuit sessions and exercises.
✔ How to periodise a circuit

A circuit may look like a series of exercise to the client. However, to the trained circuit instructor they know otherwise.

How to progress a circuit

You'll learn how to logically progress a circuit across a series of weeks.

Often a circuit is considered to be a random choice of exercises and wildly different every session. Whilst this is necessarily wrong its not 100% effective. You'll learn how to add variety and change the style of the workout whilst keeping logical progression. Meaning your clients love every session, you feel confident that the client isn't bored and everyone sees a result.

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

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

Planning circuits for different environments

Circuits is a fully fledged training system in it's own right... just like superset or pyramid system.

As a training system it has a clear set of principles which can be applied to any environment or equipment.

That could be a sports hall, community hall, studio, gym, park or at home for example.

You'll learn how to apply circuits in a variety of environments meaning you can train clients safely and effectively anywhere.

If you're wanting to train clients outside of a traditional gym setting this group based qualification will allow you to do just that.

Each environment comes with its own risks and during the course, you'll learn how to mitigate each risk to ensure each circuit session is safe and effective.

How to deliver a circuit

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

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

Plus learn the intricacies of voice projection, voice control, and pitch so you don't appear like a Sargent Major in the Army and just shout.

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

What's more, you'll learn numerous ways of how to inject fun-based gameplay into any circuit. This helps build client rapport and a strong circuit tribe that comes back week after week.

Circuits 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 workshops on how to incorporate circuits into your current fitness business and 'How to start a circuit fresh out the gates'

Many of our learners complete the circuit course whilst on their level 2 gym instructor or shortly after their level 3 personal trainer qualification.

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

How you'll be assessed

The course is split into multiple units which are assessed in a variety of theoretical and practical ways.

You will receive a learner achievement portfolio containing all the necessary worksheets, coursework, and programme card templates. You have the option to fill it out using pen and pencil or complete it online. Here's a list of your 4 assessments to qualify as a Level 2 Circuit Instructor:

Circuit Planning and Instructing Worksheet comprising of 1 to 8 mark answers

Circuit Programme Card

Delivery of a circuit - Practical Assessment

Evaluation form based on your practical assessment

You can complete some of the assessments prior to the attendance weekend. Some learners choose to focus on the studying before-hand and complete all the assessments on course.

All practical assesments are completed on the attendance weekend.

*NOTE: There are no additional assessment days or video submissions required for this course.
