    Upcoming Courses

    Level 2 Fitness Instructor

    The YMCA Awards Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing is the essential qualification you need to join the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and practice as a fitness instructor. It's ideal if you don't have any prior qualifications or experience in the industry.

    You'll learn about the principles of exercise, fitness and health; anatomy and physiology for exercise; supporting clients; and health, safety and welfare in a gym environment. You’ll also learn how to communicate with your clients effectively and how motivate them to stick to an exercise programme.

    The Level 2 course provides the perfect foundation for moving on to the Level 3 Personal Trainer course.

    Course dates:

    • First Term: 23 November - 17 December 2017
    • Christmas break
    • Second Term: 11 January – 25 February 2018

    Price

    • Student / Staff £450
    • General Public £600
    • £100 deposit (payment plans available)

    Teaching days will be Thursday 6.00pm-10.00pm and Sunday 9.00am - 5.00pm.

    The course takes place at The Fitness Pod, Middlesex University, The Burroughs, Hendon London NW4 4BT. Contact d.norville@mdx.ac.uk or 020 8411 4235

    Level 2 Exercise to Music

    The Level 2 Exercise to Music course allows you to use your personality to inspire different ages and ability by either working in a gym or freelance, delivering a number of classes a week, boosting your income and enjoying the flexibility to work around your existing lifestyle. The emphasis on freestyle teaching allows you to express your creativity and imagination confidently when delivering a studio class.

    This course means that wherever you go with your career, one thing you'll get to share is your love of music and fitness. Once qualified you could also teach classes at fitness events and conventions and possibly become a fitness presenter, you could learn to deliver popular choreography.

    Volunteering

    About sports volunteering

    The sports team at Middlesex University have a variety of volunteering opportunities available for you to get involved in. Whether it be helping out at our Holiday Kids Camps during school holidays or helping out at larger events like the London Marathon.

    We can help you become a qualified sports coach and even arrange volunteering opportunities for you. Sports coaching is a great way to learn new skills, and many students gain paid employment whilst studying at University through starting out as a volunteer sports coach. Our Coach Education programme can provide you with the opportunity to undertake a coaching course for free and then arrange a placement for you to practice your newfound skills.

    If you like travel and really want to put your coaching skills to the test you may want to consider our overseas volunteering opportunities to Gambia, China and other destinations with our Wellbeing Foundation.
