Amac offer a two entry-level qualifications to allow you to gain employment in a fitness role and a gym instructor. You should consider your personal competencies and your future goals.

Gym Instructor

Level 2 Gym Instructor

This is the more popular of the two L2 fitness qualifications as it is the prerequisite to anyone looking to become a Personal Trainer and progress on to the L3 Certificate in Personal Training. If this is your goal we usually suggest gaining your L2 and L3 qualifications together as a Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training (Includes Gym Instructor) especially if you wish to fast-track your progress. Amac’s Personal Trainer Career Package is the most cost-effective way to gain this Diploma and includes courses from Amac’s PROfusion Range, which will enhance your PT portfolio, as well as a free NUS Extra discount card and free annual CIMSPA membership.

With a L2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (Gym) you can gain work in a gym environment as a Gym Instructor. To increase your employability you can then complete ‘add on’ CPD certificates. Options include High Intensity Interval Training, Combat Fitness, Kettlebell Training, Circuit Design & Delivery, Rope Training and Sandbag Training. You can then run your own group exercise classes and have a competitive portfolio.
