The Bachelor of Applied Fitness combines the theory and practice of the field – motivation and learning, ethics, communication, and administration are each balanced with the ‘hard yard’ demands of practical training

Designed by professional fitness association members, providers of current industry accreditation, and academics with industry experience, the Bachelor of Applied Fitness is divided into four strands.

  1. Fitness Studies
  2. Fitness Science
  3. Vocational Education Training (VET) and Management
  4. Professional Skill Development.

Career Outcomes
This qualification provides a superior gateway to such lucrative growth areas as personal training, corporate health, special needs training, fitness writing, and event presentation. It can also open doors to further study and research in fitness and health related fields.
