Australian Institute of Fitness shares student insights

Australian Institute of Fitness shares student insights
March 18, 2016

The Australian Institute of Fitness has, for the first time, shared student insights into what it is really like to be educated at the country’s largest and longest established fitness training organisation.

An insightful and inspiring video contains footage from current students and provides an understanding into the experience and career opportunities future students will obtain while studying at The Institute.

Introducing the video, Australian Institute of Fitness Marketing Manager Jean Posthoorn explains “at the end of our Master Trainer program our students, or ‘Friends’ as we like to call them, do four weeks of Trainer Experience, which is work placement in the fitness industry.

“At the end of this period, they come back on campus for ‘Wrap Day’, their last day on campus where they complete their final assessment and graduate.

“During Wrap Day we have a ‘circle of reflection’ where Friends talk about why they chose to do the course, what they’ve learned and how it’s changed their thinking about the fitness industry.

“It can be very emotional, because often Friends have enrolled to do the course due to fitness somehow changing their life or someone very close to them.

“This year, we really wanted to capture this exciting and emotional journey with our Friends and show why we really are the best choice when it comes to fitness training. Not only because we have an extremely fun and vibrant campus learning environment and some of the most advanced fitness courses available in Australia, but also because we have fantastic placement success post graduating.”

The Institute’s Wrap Day video was filmed at the Parramatta campus in NSW.

With purpose-built campuses located in and around every major Australian city and over 100 expert course coaches nationwide, the Australian Institute of Fitness is the largest and longest established fitness training organisation in Australia.
