Purpose

This qualification covers particular skills and knowledge relating directly to the role of an exercise consultant (also called a gym instructor or fitness instructor) working within the New Zealand fitness industry. Competencies covered include inducting clients into a fitness enterprise, completing assessments, designing and implementing individual exercise programmes, monitoring and motivating clients, and reviewing and adapting exercise programmes. The certificate also covers general knowledge and skills related to operating safely and effectively in a fitness enterprise such as customer service and communication, safety and first aid skills, and an understanding of fitness enterprises as communities and businesses.


This qualification focuses on developing the candidate’s understanding and skill to a level where they can operate independently and effectively within the fitness environment, and builds on the foundation skills and knowledge recognised by the National Certificate in Fitness (Foundation Skills) (Level 2) [Ref: 1239]. This qualification can lead to the National Diploma in Fitness (Applied) (Level 5) [Ref: 1240] and/or the National Certificate in Fitness (Personal Training Business Skills) (Level 4) [Ref: 1320].
Holders of this qualification will likely be working or seek to work in the fitness industry as exercise consultants possibly moving into personal training or facility management or specialist fields (such as musculoskeletal rehabilitation, cardiac rehabilitation, or services to specific populations – diabetics, stroke patients, the obese).

Special Notes

While not a direct replacement, this qualification and the National Certificate in Fitness (Group Fitness Instruction) (Level 3) [Ref: 1319] were developed following review of the National Certificate in Fitness (Level 3) with strands in Group Fitness Instruction, and Individual Fitness Instruction [Ref: 0447].
