Diploma Fitness (sports conditioning)
What is Fitness Studies?
Although the term fitness is often used to refer to an individual's physical health or efficiency and exercise then automatically comes to mind, in the broader sense it also implies proper nutrition, sufficient rest and emotional well-being. Personal trainers are therefore not only taught how to improve a person's physical fitness by means of exercise and sporting activities, but also to address their nutritional habits, stress management and lifestyle choices. Students would learn how to design and implement exercise and dietary programmes, whilst at the same time motivating and mentoring individuals or groups to attain overall wellness. Thus, the job of a personal trainer is very people-orientated, while students have the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise regarding exercise.
The Diploma Fitness (sports conditioning) builds on the knowledge obtained in Certificate Fitness, which means that at Diploma Level, the content is much more focused and goes into more detail than at Certificate Level. Closer attention is given to ways in which athletes could be helped to improve their performance in sport, so this Diploma is aimed at students who wish to specialise in field fitness and training professional athletes. At first year level, students qualify as personal trainers and can also choose to specialise in Pilates mat, aerobics and spinning, while at second year level they specialise in identifying talent, developing sport tactics and skills, fitness conditioning and periodisation.
Why should I study Diploma Fitness (sports conditioning)?
In the modern era, people have become much more conscious of their health and wellness, and therefore the demand for qualified professionals to advise in this regard has grown immensely. Weight management is only a small part of total wellness, as other aspects such as stress, lifestyle and fitness also have a huge impact on a person's wellness. By obtaining a qualification in fitness you would be able to provide sound advice that speaks to all of these aspects, and by targeting wellness as a whole, you would be able to help people achieve this objective. It is often assumed that personal trainers only work in gyms or fitness facilities, but the job opportunities are much wider. Students could, for instance, consider starting their own health practice, or apply for positions at private institutions that offer wellness programmes to their employees.
