FITTA COURSES

Live the dream and inspire others to do the same!


The fitness industry is one that is ripe for the passionate and dedicated trainer. Our bodies were made to be machines of action and it is this inherent quality that has a large number of people seeking better health through improved eating habits and exercise. The problem is, that although a great percentage of people start healthier living plans at some time in their lives, many ‘fall off the wagon’! This is where YOU come in. As a fitness leader you will take on numerous roles but the main reason people will turn to you, is to be motivated to reach and even exceed their goals.


At Fitness Training Academy (www.fitta.com.au) we have developed a program that allows you to become a qualified Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer by completing your Certificates III and IV in Fitness.


The program is self-paced and can be worked around your own schedule. While much of the work can be done autonomously and in your own home, you will also be provided with a mentor and a gym to work out of. This we believe is important as it is mainly through practical application and experience that real knowledge is gained. 


We have also designed the program to remain affordable without foregoing quality education.


These are just a few of the components that make up our courses.  It is our desire to support potential trainers to gain knowledge and experience in all of these areas and more!



SIS30315 Certificate III in Fitness gives you a fantastic introduction to a career in fitness as a Group Exercise Instructor and Gym Instructor. Imagine having a choice of career opportunities in gymnasiums throughout Australia and maybe even overseas.
