The need for health, fitness and exercise professionals is evolving.

Central to these national concerns is the concept of healthy lifestyle and within this, the need for appropriate exercise prescription is a frequently repeated theme. You will learn a scientific understanding in anatomy, exercise physiology and nutrition; and how to conduct fitness tests and health screening on a variety of different clients. You will also gain experience in designing exercise programmes for a range of clients and special populations. You will learn the transferable skills to become self-employed or to be an invaluable employee.
