What skills do I need to be a successful gym instructor?

To be a successful gym instructor you will need to have a number of skills, traits and characteristics. You are an instructor, motivator and role model to anyone training in your facility. You are representing the company/brand you are working for so professionalism is a key attribute.

Key Gym Instructor Skills

Effective communication is required to both communicate with gym staff and the general public. Being able to explain and coach effectively in a clear and accurate way is important; our Level 2 Gym Instructor course helps nurture these skills as well as more practical training techniques.

Punctuality is very important knowing that you can be relied upon is a great way to progress in a company. Making sure you are organised and on time is important, get into a good routine and get used to getting up at the same time sleeping at the right times.

Knowledge in the topic area, learning never stops keep reading attending CPD courses, sign up for blogs, podcasts and e-mails to gain as much knowledge as you can. Then share this knowledge show people you know what you are talking about.

Confidence is a key attribute, being approachable understanding the needs of others and encouraging the public in their goals. Confidence in your knowledge can be maintained by continued study and then running classes and group sessions will build confidence in this environment.
