I am lucky enough to have been involved in the fitness industry in a number of different capacities over the years. One of the roles I have found most rewarding, but challenging has been that of being a fitness tutor.
As a course designer (instructional designer) I have, I feel had a more natural flow with the processes that I follow in the development of a new course.
As a tutor and assessor one of the main factors that drives me is seeing the development of the learners I have contact with.
We are all constantly learning new skills and adding to our levels of knowledge.
When we deliver our training course it is vital to use some form of assessment or evaluation as to the effectiveness of our training.
I have been involved in the creation and design of courses for the fitness and personal training industry for some time.
Over the last few months I have been talking to a fair few people involved in fitness education with regard to the new Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF).
I am sat on a train after a fabulous day in London teaching a level 4 Low Back Pain course for Train.Fitness.
I have been toying around with setting up a group aimed at Fitness/Leisure educators for a while now.
