Circuit training is a form of group exercise in which strength, endurance, and cardiovascular exercises are combined in one session. A number of carefully selected stations will be positioned around the facility using a variety of equipment which may include barbells, dumbbells, resistance bands, stability equipment, benches, skipping ropes and mats. Participants are assigned to each station to perform a particular exercise for a set period of time before moving to the next station. There is little or no rest between exercises which typically are performed for 15 to 45 seconds each. Workouts continue until all exercises have been completed or a certain time requirement is achieved
This fun 2-day workshop will broaden your knowledge and skills, helping you to professionally plan and deliver different types of circuit classes. You will learn more about the history and background of circuit training, various examples of circuit layouts including routines requiring minimal equipment, group management techniques and effective instructor skills. Circuit training can be easily adapted to cater for large groups and mixed levels of fitness. Our specialised tutors will help to ensure you are prepared for these real life scenarios.
Achievement of the course will be assessed through completing a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate your knowledge of circuit training and ability to plan a safe and effective routine. You will also be required to deliver a practical assessment, during the 2-days, showing your competency in leading a mini circuit class.
