If you are unsure of what adventures to embark on after completing Matric, but you are sure that you love fitness or the idea of coaching, then choosing to study at a fitness training college is not a bad idea.
Preconceptions of those who follow fitness after school
There are many negative preconceptions surrounding those who choose not to go straight to university, study a three to four-year degree, and then enter the job market. We find that society has prescribed this supposedly ‘natural’ progression of events in a young person’s life and we are here to tell them NO – just because they did not follow the most popular route does not mean they aren’t going to be successful! With a fitness training college, such as Physical IQ, we make sure that our students are prepared for all walks of life upon completion of their studies and practice with us.
Benefits of choosing to study at a fitness training college
If you love all things fitness and sport-related, then the huge benefit of studying at somewhere like Physical IQ is that you get to do the things you love EVERY SINGLE DAY. We can’t think of anything better! Sure, like any course you decide to do, there are some aspects you might not enjoy as much, but this is hardly big enough to take away from the fact that you are pursuing your passion.
Additionally, becoming a fitness professional is an awesome and dynamic experience. At Physical IQ, we firmly believe that not all learning should take place in a classroom – the outdoors and the gym are also places to learn and grow. Obviously, there is some theory involved, forming a vital part of our various courses, but it doesn’t get so heavy that you want to bang your head against a wall. Some of the day will be in the classroom, some of it will be in the gym, some of it will be outside. This ensures a dynamic and exciting method of learning so that our students never get bored and are always engaged. In turn, they end up loving what they do and, most importantly, do it well.
