Fitness Institute offer the SISSS00113 – Group Exercise Leader (GEL) skillset online.
If you are looking to become a Group Exercise Leader delivering pre-choreographed classes designed for you and don’t want or need to design your own fitness classes or become a Gym Supervisor, this is the perfect course for you to do.
Combining 4 specific units of competency with a recognised pre-choreographed training provider certification (i.e. MOSSA, Les Mills, Radical or Zumba) enables you to become a Registered Group Exercise Leader with organisations like National Peak Fitness Registration Body, Fitness Australia.
As registration, insurance and employment requirements differ between organisations, we recommend contacting professional registration organisations, employers and/or insurers directly for their specific requirements.
If you do want to design your own fitness classes and obtain a greater knowledge of anatomy, physiology, group instruction and exercise prescription in the near future, you should consider the Certificate III & IV in Fitness which is a pathway to becoming a qualified Gym Supervisor and Personal Trainer.

We also recommend completing CPR and First Aid externally as this is an important qualification to obtain and may be required when registering as a Group Exercise Leader.
