HOW TO BECOME A BODYPUMP INSTRUCTOR AUSTRALIA

Australia has a rather awesome Fitness Industry we have a world standard training package that has several career options within it from Fitness to Sports Coaching. The package endorsed nationally and has Certificate 1 - Diplomas in the Fitness Industry.

With this in mind we have a National Code of Practice that was placed into effect from January 2005. Essentially anyone working in a gym must have the following in place:

Senior First Aid CPR/EAR
Certificate 3 in Fitness or Equiv.
Specialisation - Gym - Group Fitness - Aqua.
Insurance Coverage.

With this in mind Les Mills Australia requires all its instructors to be registered via Fitness Australia and this is now become the norm in Australia.


So what else do you need?

Have a passion for the program being taught. Attend at least 30 classes before the training over a number of weeks. This gives you the preparation for the training that you are about to undertake.

Obtain permission from a gym to do the training (Licensed Facility.) who is licensed to teach the program being sought training in.

Do the training Modules 1 - 2 over 2 weekends.

At the training’s systems are in place to make sure you are able to Instruct Classes. You must pass these systems to be able to teach your program trained in.

Then you are able to teach the program you are trained in. In 12 weeks from the very first class, you are recommend to send in a video for Certification. You can ask for a review assessment prior to this, when this is in gear then you can film your video and send it.

Contact Les Mills Australia and ask them for a list of training dates and places where these are held. The trainers are International Master Trainers.

Have a great time and enjoy your training. :)
