A new fitness qualification has been launched combining the Level 2 Fitness Instructor qualification and Les Mills International Instructor certification.

The FitEx qualification, launched by Les Mills UK and Lifetime Training, gives trainees the chance to study Level 2 Anatomy and Physiology, five key elements of training and trainer soft skills.

The qualification also provides the opportunity of studying one or two Les Mills programmes, with courses being completed within two to three months.

FitEx uses a variety of learning methods and tools, including home study, online learning, four days split across a classroom and a gym, plus 10 hours of Les Mills pre-course choreography learning and live training.

The Fitness Instructor course includes entry onto the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) at Level 2 along with 20 CPD points, while each Les Mills programme earns instructors an additional 16 REPs points.

“Fitness Instructors and PTs need more than technical skills and this will become increasingly clear as their roles change and become more demanding in the future,” said Nigel Wallace, Client Services Director at Lifetime Training.

“Whilst we build key practical, communication and commercial skills into our certificate and diploma courses, having the FitEx Award including one or two Les Mills Programmes, really enhances an instructor's employment opportunities and value.”
