AO Partner VTCT: launch of a new learner gym manual

Gym manual cover
VTCT has launched a new learning resource for students undertaking the Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing (Gym).

The 100-page manual costs just £15 and covers the knowledge, understanding and skills within the Instructing Gym-based Exercise unit of the qualification. This new resource provides guidance and activities to reinforce learning and develop practical skills. It focuses on preparing, instructing and supervising, concluding and reviewing gym-based exercise sessions.  The manual contains full colour photographs and detailed explanations of each exercise that has to be included in this qualification.  These include teachings points, muscle groups, joint actions and alternatives/adaptations.

The role of the instructor is diverse and requires thorough knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of areas (i.e. anatomy and physiology, exercise training principles, client support and motivation, health and safety, programme and session planning and competence in teaching/instructing sessions).
