What if you could enable clients to make lasting behaviour change?

With obesity, diabetes and depression on the rise, health and fitness professionals have realised that a shift in mindset is necessary to achieve lasting behaviour change. In a time of short-term body transformation programs and highly accessible information, people are still struggling with mental and physical roadblocks, which get in the way of living the lives they want.

In response, Network has partnered with FireUp Coaching to deliver the fitness industry’s first nationally and internationally accredited Diploma of Leadership, Coaching and Mentoring (22233VIC).

This face-to-face course gives learners knowledge, tools and practical experience in leadership, coaching and mentoring to apply the current science around thinking and human behaviours to clients’ lives. Participants can increase earning potential, gain a competitive edge and progress their career in fitness and beyond.

Until now, an official fitness industry-specific Coaching qualification has not existed, with choices of further education for trainers and instructors mainly in the tertiary field.

Nigel Champion, executive director of Network, said ‘Mindset and behaviour change have been widely recognised as the missing link in education for fitness professionals. Network’s Diploma of Leadership, Coaching and Mentoring addresses this, equipping our industry’s leading professionals with the skills to empower lasting change in their clients and in themselves.’

The first round of courses will be available in Sydney and Melbourne, with the inaugural student intake commencing in September 2015.
