WHY STUDY AT TAV COLLEGE?
Instructors in this program bring their personal success stories and experiences to the classroom and guide students towards a successful career as a fitness instructor, personal trainer, health and fitness consultant, and/or entrepreneur of a small business.
As of Fall 2021, students in this program will be able to immerse themselves in our brand-new “fitness labs,” which have been designed to replicate a professional health and fitness setting and contain the most up-to-date equipment for most fitness programs.
Fitness instructors work in facilities that offer individual or group fitness activities, or they are provided with infrastructures that facilitate the organization of such activities.
The presence of fitness centers, as well as recreational and tourist complexes, municipal centers, and residential establishments, are constantly rising. Fitness instructors and personal trainers may work within these facilities or they can also work within businesses and organizations that are seeking to promote increased physical activity.
The sectors covered by this certification are bound by the type of clientele involved:
Individuals: Any individual seeking advice, coaching, and/or support in their fitness goal(s).
Public groups or businesses: Any business or community group seeking to support its staff in their approach to fitness and physical health.
