Active IQ Skills Hub helps fitness professionals boost skills in post-Covid market

Suffice to say that the pandemic has completely changed the way fitness professionals work and the way consumers work out – and therein lies opportunity.

We’re delighted to see fitness facilities opening back up to full capacity. There is a renewed sense of energy as fit and focused individuals resume their much-loved gym routines and group exercise sessions.

It’s also clear to see both excitement and trepidation among people starting out on their fitness journey post-pandemic.

Without a doubt, operators are seeing many people looking to gain or regain their fitness after being impacted mentally or physically by Covid-19 and lockdown.

So, as a fitness professional are you feeling ready?

It would be completely understandable to feel a little apprehensive having not been in the gym environment or studio for a while.

Continued Professional Development (CPD) is a great way to keep your skills up-to-date and ensures you can offer new services and insight to clients.

Active IQ has a diverse choice of CPD ranging from Kettlebells to Ketogenic Dieting, Mental Health First Aid to Boot Camp Success and Functional Ageing to Online Training.

All are available to see at the Active IQ Skills Hub, which is exclusively available to Active IQ approved centres and their learners.

Active IQ has over 500 approved training providers throughout the UK and internationally, so why not check out the choice today and book yourself onto a course to boost your knowledge, skills and confidence?

This is how James Luscombe, managing director of Study Active – one of Active IQ’s providers of Personal Training and Fitness Instructor qualifications – describes Skills Hub.

“Skills Hub sets Active IQ apart by offering this unmatchable resource to bring us up to speed on new qualifications and standards, industry knowledge and essential updates. It’s an excellent start point for our centres and graduates to take industry information onboard and a lean, efficient way for us to access and cascade knowledge and information updates.”

If you’d like more information on your nearest Active IQ approved training centre contact the team for more information by emailing [email protected].
