Deciding on which fitness college to attend is a life-changing decision. It could make or break your career in health, fitness and sports management. Some institutions will give you a head start that you can truly benefit from. There are those that simply cannot provide you with the support and expertise that you need. They cannot give you the assurance that you will get the most you can out of your fitness instructor training.

So, you need to make the right decision before embarking on any fitness training course. Here are a few qualities that you should look out for in your prospective fitness college.

Fitness College Qualities and Attributes

Fitness Community Must Know All About the Fitness College

Any fitness college that is worth its salt has likely been around for a while. They would have done so by moving from strength to strength.

An institution that enjoys a successful reputation will have the resources necessary to prepare you for a career in fitness thanks to state-of-the-art instruction methods, continuous research as well as relationships with various working fitness coaches and institutions. So, if neither you nor anyone else has heard of the academy, there is likely a good reason.

The Fitness College Must Be Locally and Internationally Accredited

One of the most important questions you should ask your prospective fitness college is about what type of accreditation they will award you at the end of the course. To this end, you want to make sure that you are studying with a college that can offer you both local and international accreditation which will give you room to begin your career as a fitness instructor – from anywhere in the world.

Trifocus Fitness Academy is one such fitness college. We hold both local and international accreditations:

  • We are local accredited through the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) as well as the Culture, Art, Tourism, Hospitality, and Sport Sector Education and Training Authority (CATHSSETA).
  • All our students have access to international job opportunities through the Register of Exercise Professionals South Africa (REPPSA). The Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) in the United States has also bestowed one of their very prestigious accreditations on us. (Learn more about us here.)

The College Needs to Provide Student Support

Studying is difficult. This is especially true when you have to handle administration on top of all of your workload. Because of this, it is essential for any educational or training institution to provide each of their students with comprehensive student support services. If the college you are looking at doesn’t provide support, they are likely not your best bet.

It Should Be Easy To Pay The Fitness College

Payment is always a factor to consider when deciding who to enrol with. Price is but a tip of the iceberg. Look for a college that offers easy-to-understand, simple, flexible and convenient payment options. This is to ensure that your studies will never be interrupted by issues with your accounts. Flexibility also allows you to complete your course and begin your adventure as a fitness instructor at a budget and scheme that works for you.

Roy Padayachy Q&A Testimonial

 Trifocus graduate Roy Padayachy

Why did you choose Trifocus Fitness Academy for your college?

I always wanted to become a boxing coach and Trifocus Fitness Academy gladly accepted me with opened arms, other institutions turned me away as I do not meet their requirements, despite being a professional football coach and having completed my studies in Sports Management through UNISA.

What Course did you just complete?

The Boxing Certification Course, for now … until I enrol again 🙂

What did you enjoy best about this course?

From start to finish everything was fantastic from getting the ball rolling with registration and payments, the course itself and the facilitation.Massive respect to Coach Colin Nathan and a big shout out to all the boxers and facilitators at The Hot Box Gym, as well as all of those who attended the class, great people, great environment, we all helped each other.

(I don’t know if I am allowed to mention the staff at Trifocus, but also a very big thank you to Joshua and Marilie)

How did you like the online learning material what parts of the online experience did you enjoy the most? (if the question is applicable)

This was a practical course so there was no online material.

Would you recommend Trifocus to your colleagues and why?

I would highly recommend Trifocus Fitness Academy to everyone, from inception you are treated very well, support is always available, the facilitation of the course material is user friendly and easy to navigate through.

How has becoming qualified with Trifocus improved your Life Style and Wellness out look?

I used to box in high school, but was not introduced to the sport correctly which led to unnecessary injury from incorrect training, all that changed with Trifocus and Coach Colin and The Hot Box Gym, so going forward, I will be able to spread the knowledge gained, also create a safer and more user friendly environment for anybody that would be interested in taking up boxing. I am also able to incorporate the training methods and techniques in my own training, working smarter … and harder when necessary.
