We want to springboard graduates into specialist careers.
(PRWEB UK) 13 September 2012
Health and Fitness Education improve sporting infrastructure in Britain from behind the scenes, as Olympic Games cement growing interest in athletics.
Health and Fitness Education (HFE) is a British organisation dedicated to arming new personal trainers with the knowledge and skill to go on and coach clients in much more than workout technique. In light of the heavy focus on athleticism due to the Olympics, HFE are enjoying the sporting hype but are keen to remind budding trainers they ought to be studying health, as much as they study fitness.
This means they want more fledgling trainers to take up nutrition courses alongside their fitness teaching programmes. By providing such courses, HFE are hoping to raise the standard of personal training nationwide. This, combined with the impact of the London Olympics on sporting interest, promises to result in a healthier Britain overall – especially in the long term, as more HFE graduates begin their careers.
A spokesperson for Health and Fitness Education commented:
‘Anybody who wants to become a personal trainer already has the passion for sport and fitness required. What we want to do is educate these up and coming professionals in the areas that are sometimes a little overlooked. Nutrition is a big aspect of personal training now and on top of this, we want to springboard graduates into specialist careers, focusing on things like indoor cycling for example - which is obviously huge in the UK now following the success of Team GB.’
Meanwhile, there is a call from the British Olympic Association for the government to fund sporting infrastructure at a grassroots level. Improved facilities in schools could result in an increase in students aiming to pursue personal training careers after their GCSEs – a notion that is welcomed by HFE, who are optimistic that more pupils will take up a niche fitness programme like their aerobics instructor course.
Beyond their extensive personal training programmes, HFE also offer courses in Business Skills to help graduates who choose to go down the self-employed route. To find out more about Health and Fitness Education or to sign up to an elearning course today, visit http://www.hfe.co.uk.
