Fitness equips you with the skills you need for a successful, long-term
career in fitness.

CERTIFIED COACH COURSE

Take our nationally recognized SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness to become qualified as a Group Fitness Instructor, or use it as a foundation to go on and continue into our SIS40215 Certificate IV in Fitness.

CERTIFICATE III IN FITNESS

SIS30315

In our SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness, you’ll develop the skills required to plan, prepare and deliver incredible group fitness classes, while broadening your knowledge in other key coaching areas, including nutrition and customer service.

CERTIFICATE IV IN FITNESS

SIS40215

In our SIS40215 Certificate IV in Fitness, you gain not only the fitness and exercise expertise that PTs need – you also develop the coaching skills required to influence clients’ behavior, as well as the business and marketing skills to set you up for success.

CERTIFICATE III & IV IN FITNESS

SIS30315 & SIS40215

Both in one go! You need to have done a SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness to qualify for a SIS40215 Certificate IV in Fitness, so the majority of our students do the combined course, unless they already have a SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness for previous study.

Faqs

IS THIS WORKSHOP RIGHT FOR ME?

If you have a passion for fitness and helping others, yes for sure! It doesn’t matter your age or stage, if you care about these two things you can make a great coach. We get a lot of career-changers studying with us because they want a new, active career in which they can set their own hours and control how much they earn. This program will give you all the skills you need to be a career coach set for long-term success.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

As well as the fitness and exercise expertise that personal trainers require, you will learn how to coach people to influence their behaviours, as well as the business, sales and marketing skills that you usually need to be a PT.

WHAT ARE YOUR PAYMENT OPTIONS?

We take a small deposit when you begin, then a payment won’t be taken for 7 days, so if you decide the course isn’t for you within that time, you can withdraw your enrollment free of charge (and have the deposit refunded). We like to provide flexibility when it comes to payment options, to make the course accessible. We have payment plans that range across 10 weeks to up to 35 weeks, giving you access to the course for less than $150 per week.

WHY IS THIS PROGRAM IS THE BEST WAY TO GET STARTED AS A TRAINER?
We equip students with the practical skills they actually need to be great coaches, not just theoretical fitness knowledge. Studying at Fitness Playground Academy also guarantees you a job interview with Fitness Playground, which is continuously recognised as being one of the best places to work in Australia.
