        • You also need public indemnity and professional liability insurance, this is sometimes provided by your employer, though sometimes it’s for you to look after this sort of things.

    To be a fitness instructor is it true that you need to have a CPR certificate? I thought that a qualification in fitness and exercise instruction was all that was necessary…

    • To the best of my knowledge you need a CPR cert, fitness qualifications and knowledge in physiology and nutrition.

    • From a practical perspective you have to be a very perceptive person and have good people skills to identify the needs and attainable objectives for each of your clients, so that they don’t get frustrated and give up. You’ve got to be able to keep them motivated over time.

    • The most important skills: Starting out as a apprentice with a real and genuine passion for the work involved and the lifestyle of the fitness industry. And not motivated by 'talking the talk and money'.
