Fitness and Personal Training with Placement

Love sport and want to make a difference to the health and fitness of others? Southampton Solent’s fitness and personal training degree will help provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to make an impact in this growing industry. This practical, career-focused degree has given previous students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience to complement their studies. Students work with real-life clients, including exercise referral patients, disabled users, and older adults. This experience aims to give students a rounded knowledge of client goals, as well as developing their professional skills ready to embark on their chosen career. Students are also able to apply their knowledge gained in the University’s industry-standard fitness labs which include a range of modern, high-tech fitness training and testing equipment. Students also have access to specialised physiology and psychology labs. Another important element of the course is our accreditation from the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs), SkillsActive Group and ukactive. These accreditations show potential employers that the course is dedicated to promoting excellence in fitness promotion. Students will be given the opportunity to gain entry to REPs - essential for any qualified fitness professional - as well as the opportunity to work towards other industry qualifications. Past students have been able to build their practical experience by working with real-life clients. Students are encouraged to gain the professional qualifications sought after by the fitness industry. Course graduates have gone on to work for large fitness chains such as David Lloyd, and niche organisations including Wiltshire Golf and Country Club, as well as becoming personal trainers on a freelance basis. Southampton Solent’s highly-practical fitness and personal training degree is perfect for those with a keen interest in health and fitness and who wish to pursue a career as a personal trainer, PE teacher or strength and conditioning coach.
