Outdoor Fitness Coach Course
This qualification will arm you with the ability to add variety and creativity to your fitness sessions, effectively utilising the outdoor environment, portable equipment and body weight to keep your clients coming back for more.
If you are looking to provide any form of outdoor training to your clients, this course is essential. Once you have completed this course, you can offer outdoor running clubs, outdoor exercise classes, fitness boot camps, and your standard personal training courses.
Simply working out in the gym and having your Personal Training classes in an indoor location is great, but sometimes we all need a change of scenery, and your clients will be the same. You can do this by mixing up your sessions with the help of the Focus Training Outdoor fitness course.
Along with the help of mother nature, there are proven benefits to exercising outdoors, including lowering blood pressure and helping with sleeping disorders. In addition to these, your clients get to improve their mood and increase self-esteem.
Trainers who run courses outside often find that their clients are more engaged and motivated if they are in an outdoor location due to the changing scenery and fresh air.
When you exercise outside, not only are you improving your fitness levels and benefiting from all of the usual aspects of exercise, but you are getting access to natural vitamin D that helps with the maintenance of healthy bones, teeth, and muscles.
This course is a distance learning course, where you will learn about the equipment you’ll be using, and the best way to set up exercise programs outdoors.
