Personal Training Courses: Full-Time or Part-Time?

At Sage Institute of Fitness, you can choose to study a Diploma of Fitness full-time or part-time, whatever suits you best. Both options have their pros and cons, so let’s examine them further so you can see which study mode would suit you best.

Full-Time Study
Studying full-time can be a lot of fun: you can totally immerse yourself in student life, surround yourself with like-minded peers and totally devote yourself to learning, living and breathing all things fitness! For a concentrated period of time, you can stay totally focused, taking in all the theoretical and practical information you need to qualify yourself in the fast growing fitness industry.

Your period of study will be shorter: the sooner you finish your studies and qualify, the sooner your new and exciting career in the fitness industry can begin. If you can’t wait to get started as a fitness professional, a full-time fitness course will set you on your way to your new career in half the time of a part-time fitness course.

Start earning! The sooner you qualify, the sooner you can start to earn good money, which, let’s face it, is always appealing! Studying full-time means that you will be learning in a shorter time frame, fast-tracking your way to maximise your earnings as a fitness professional.

Part-Time Study
For those of you that have dependents, financial obligations or lifestyle commitments limiting your available time, part-time study could be the way to go. You can still earn an income or meet your family obligations while attending classes on weeknights or weekends.  This way, you are able to complete your course and transition into the fitness industry when it suits you.

Feel a bit timid about launching yourself into the world of full-time study? Most people find that as soon as they commence a personal training course, a lot of their anxieties melt away. However, if it’s been some time since you’ve been a student – or you’ve never been a student before – part-time study may be a nice way to ‘break the ice’.

If you are already working in a related field, but you are interested in studying to become a fitness professional, part-time study may be the solution. It will enable you to absorb the course work slowly, possibly applying it to your current job or helping you transition into this new field with a greater understanding of what’s involved.

Remember, if you have any anxieties or concerns about what’s involved in any of our courses at Sage or you would simply like to find out more, feel free to call one of our friendly career advisors at any time, that’s what they’re here for!
