Fitness Institute offer the online SISSS00113 – Group Exercise Leader online. This skillset course will supplement an additional program for pre-choreographed group fitness classes or a prescribed community fitness program. Completion of both your external classes as well as the 4 units through Fitness Institute will enable you to become a Registered Group Exercise Leader with Fitness Australia. If you just want to become a Group Exercise Leader at this stage, and don’t want to become a Gym Instructor as well, this is a good course for you to do. If you want to become a Personal Trainer in the near future, you should consider the Certificate III & IV in Fitness PT Course.

Note that for insurance purposes, you will still be required to do your CPR and First Aid externally before you can register with Fitness Australia and have the relevant insurances.

Work Placement required:
11 hours in total:
3 hours customer service
5 hours of participation in a pre-choreographed class taught by another instructor
3 hours teaching pre-choreographed classes

An example of a pre-choreographed group fitness class would be Mossa’s Group Power class.

Testimonial from Fitness Institute GEL Graduate and Zumba Instructor Minie Minarelli

“My experience with Fitness Institute has been fantastic! As a Zumba trainer I needed one more qualification in order to start my class at Goodlife Health Clubs Parramatta and I chose the Fitness Institute GEL course. Needless to say: I was a bit impatient, I wanted to activate my class as soon as I could, and I’m terrible with technology and online courses!
Still the Fitness Institute team has gone above and beyond for me: from day one Sarah, Jaimee and Kristine have been awesome in giving me clear and consistent information, in supporting my requests and processing my assessments.
Their emails have always been very polite and friendly…Finally customer service that treats you like a real person and not a number!
Kristine has also taken the time to explain to me where and how I could amend my assessments, which is a great thing because, yes, you want your qualifications as quickly as you can, but you also want the best quality and a course that truly makes the difference (I’m a trainer and assessor myself, and I think she’s done a great job assessing my work).
Now my Zumba class is getting bigger and bigger, and I proudly confirm that the GEL course by Fitness Institute made the difference! Highly recommended!”
