Personal Trainer Courses

Masters Fitness Academy

A Fitness Certification, uniquely tailored for mature students!

Why are we different?

We focus on serving two key types of people!

1: Mature age learners! We understand that not everyone who wants to become a Personal Trainer is straight out of high school! Plenty of mature age learners are looking for a career change and want to work in the Fitness Industry and have plenty of life experience - this is who we want to certify!

2: People who want to work with older adults on completion of their certifications! We understand that not everyone wants to become a Personal Trainer to train athletes, body builders and bikini models. Plenty of Personal Trainers prefer to work with older adults - helping them keep their quality of life high - this is who we want to certify!

We believe that both types of people are under represented in the Fitness Industry and we want to change this!

Companion Courses

As the Certificate III and IV in Fitness does not focus heavily on training older adults, we have done two things.

1) We have contextualised the course for people who want to train older adults. Any practical tasks in the course have been tailored so they are suitable for people aged over 50.

2) We have added two companion courses to the Certification.

Along with your Certificate III and IV in Fitness, you also get access to two companion courses

- Training Older Adults (Level 1)

- Training Older Adults (Level 2)

These companion courses cover topics around

- Falls prevention

- Considerations for running an older adults session

- Myths around training older adults

- Common conditions in older adults

- Menopause and exercise

- Osteoporosis and exercise

- Arthritis and exercise

- Brain health and exercise

- Balance training and older adults

- Resistance training and older adults

- Chair based exercise and older adults

This way once you finish your studies, along your Certificate III and IV in Fitness, you'll also have specialised certificates around training older adults.

Why Focus on Training Older Adults?

Focusing on training older adults is important for several reasons. First, as people age, their physical health needs change. Older adults face unique challenges such as reduced muscle mass, decreased bone density, and a higher risk of chronic diseases like arthritis and heart disease. Tailoring fitness programs to address these issues can significantly improve their quality of life, helping them stay healthier and more active as they age.

Second, the population of older adults is growing rapidly. With advancements in healthcare, people are living longer, leading to a higher demand for fitness programs that cater specifically to the needs of the elderly. By focusing on training older adults, fitness professionals can tap into a growing market, offering specialized services that are in high demand. This not only benefits the trainers professionally but also fills a vital need in the community.

Lastly, exercise and physical activity can have a profound impact on the mental health and social well-being of older adults. Regular exercise helps reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, improves cognitive function, and can even foster a sense of community among participants. By creating fitness programs designed for older adults, trainers can help them lead not only healthier but also happier lives, making a significant difference in their overall well-being.
