Introduction

The Outdoor Fitness Instructor Award is the ultimate in instructor training. This module takes you beyond the boundaries of a conventional gym and gym equipment. The outdoor fitness award will challenge you to think out of the box. 

On the outdoor fitness instructor award module you will learn how to teach different styles of fitness circuits in the outdoors. From military style fitness to urban, park and playground fitness. You will learn how to apply the latest physiological, anatomical and metabolic scientific research to training outdoors using small equipment, body weight and just your enrvironment.  The course will teach you how to plan and risk assess for teaching outdoors and how to use the space around you to motivate and inspire your clients to workout.  If you want to teach any form of bootcamp this is the course for you. You will only be limited by your imagination. Suitable for fitness instructors and advanced trainers.

The scope for different exercises outdoors is vast. From HIIT training to functional everyday movement you can use the environment or equipment to strengthen, stretch or load an exercise.  

The combined Outdoor Fitness Award is internationally accepted and recognised by CIMSPA.
