What Options are There?

YMCAfit training courses offer a range of options to suit almost any fitness training needs, from beginners taking their first steps through to advanced practitioners looking to specialize.

YMCAfit certifications are so well-recognised in the UK fitness industry that many other providers' training courses lead to CYQ (Central YMCA Qualification) certification.

Whether you are thinking of starting a career in exercise and fitness, or moving upwards into more advanced levels, they will have a course for you.

What Course Levels Do You Offer?

There are three levels of courses, Entry Level, Professional Level, and Advanced Development Days, for each of the following disciplines:

  • Personal Trainer
  • Gym Training
  • Studio Aerobics

That means that personal trainers can choose a route that best suits their skills and interests.

Personal trainers need to acquire a variety of skills in order to meet the different needs of their clients. Two of the best courses are:

YMCAfit Client Lifestyle and Fitness Assessment:

This 4 day program will help you to figure out what makes a client tick and what they want to achieve through exercise.

YMCAfit Advanced Gym Instructor:

This course is an essential background for most personal trainers. It lasts 12 days, and aims to give you the in-depth knowledge to develop individualised, varied and effective exercise plans to meet your clients' specific goals.
