  • Designing a fitness program
  • Educating and motivating the client
  • Offering advice on health, nutrition and lifestyle changes
  • Monitoring and recording progress
Entry into this field requires a high level of experience and at least a level 3 certificate which is recognized by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs).
