Fitness Pilates is a training option that focuses on the body as a human kinetic chain.

The aim is to identify basic postural imbalances such as feet rolling in or out, elevated hip or shoulder, rounded back and miss alignment. Then to focus on strengthening the center by relearning the mind and body to recruit core muscles. By doing this we can increase muscular balance, strength and posture.

  What You Will Learn

In these 30 minute lunch time sessions, you will learn;

- Contraction of the core muscles and pelvic floor

- maintaining core stability whilst being challenged by movement

- increased flexibility and strength of the spine

- taking posture and core strength knowledge and applying it in to everyday life

I originally enrolled on the Level 2 course purely to gain the qualification to become a reputable health and fitness journalist (after graduating with a journalism degree). But the course was so interesting, informative and fun that I couldn't resist staying on to complete the Level 3! I didn't even want to leave after that!

The qualifications enabled me to spend a few years working as a personal trainer and gym instructor alongside my writing work. And I know for certain that the knowledge and experience I gained from both the courses and my time spent working as a trainer has enabled me to write content at a much higher standard. It's also helped when interviewing high-level fitness professionals for articles as I can actually understand what they're talking about, which has given me a distinct advantage when pitching articles within the fitness industry. The knowledge has also improved my own training, so it's a win-win!

Level 3 • Part-time • Cornwall College Camborne

The role of an exercise referral instructor is one of the most important in the industry. With health conditions such as obesity, depression and type 2 diabetes on the rise, using exercise to reduce the implications of these conditions is becoming an essential intervention and supported by medical professionals worldwide. If having a rewarding career where you positively improve the health of an individual is for you then this course could be your next step.

In addition to this you will have the opportunity to gain experience with real clients in collaboration with other referral schemes in the community where partnerships have been made to enhance your learning experience. This will allow you to get the most out of your learning by directly applying theory into practice with the guidance of not only your college tutor but other industry experts. Our industry experienced lecturers are fully qualified and practicing fitness professionals themselves and will guide you towards a career as an exercise referral instructor. You will learn about a variety of medical conditions and how to prescribe safe and effective exercise. You will gain knowledge on the exercise referral process and how the fitness professional is involved as well as risk stratification ensuring that the benefit of exercise for the client outweighs the risk it may pose. This course is perfect for qualified personal trainers who are looking to develop their breadth of clients to those who have more complex medical conditions. In addition to this the NHS long term plan envisages that by 2023 nearly 1 million people will be referred to schemes involving exercise referral meaning that specific job roles in the NHS will be more readily available than they are already.
