My name is Mohammad, here in the Australian College of Sport and Fitness I have completed the Certificate 3 and 4 in fitness including a Diploma in Fitness. It has been a wonderful experience with teachers that are up to date with the current and latest trend in the industry. Having a certificate 3 and 4 in fitness would allow me to secure almost any job in the field of fitness. And now with a Diploma in Fitness, I am able to pursue a higher certification of education through the pathway provided by the ACSF and Australian Catholic University (ACU). It is my goal to be able to obtain a degree in Exercise Physiology which would provide a vast range of work within the Health and Fitness industry that includes gyms and clinics or hospitals. This can be obtained by the pathway course of Degree in Exercise Health Science. An excellent way for those like me who are passionate in helping others.
I have recently completed my Certificate III in Fitness at Australian College of Sport and Fitness. I am very thankful that I decided to give a go in ACSF. I have enjoyed every aspect of the course. All my teacher have always made the effort to help me when needed, and have always been enthusiastic and interactive with the students.
I have learnt a lot and became even more passionate about health and helping others achieve goals and overcome obstacles.
I would recommend the College to anyone!
Q: What qualification did you study?
A: I have studied Certificate III and IV in Fitness and I am really looking forward to the Diploma.
Q: What do you think about the teachers at the college?
A: I like the teachers here because they are all so different since they are from different countries and different cultures. They also all have a different way of teaching, so every term it is a new experience.
Q: What do you think about the courses?
A: The best thing about the courses is that in practical and even in theory the teachers make it fun. They keep it interesting and it rarely gets boring. Especially in practical classes you get to go outside and you change gyms every term.
Q: What do you think sets this college apart from others?
A: I have studied with other colleges before and often found it very boring and unorganized. ACSF is the best college so far because you are constantly supported and constantly active.
Q: What do you think about the opportunity to study at 4 different campuses?
A: I think it is a great that you have the choice to study somewhere else. Especially if something changes and you maybe want to work somewhere else. And there are great cities: Melbourne is a littler cheaper, Perth and Brisbane a little warmer and Sydney is just overall awesome.
Q: What would you say to other students?
A: Do it! It is a great experience. If you are an active person and you want keep it that way, want to stay healthy, make sure your family and friends stay healthy and would like to make this your job, go for it!

Fitness Home Study
There are so many options today when it comes to becoming a certified Personal Trainer. Choosing the Australian College of Sport and Fitness (ACSF) was the best choice for me and a decision I am glad I made.
The health and fitness industry has been my passion since I was in high school and a topic on which I recreationally educated myself. The option of their home study course together with my Bachelor of Science degree gave me the opportunity to utilise the knowledge gained to work at my own pace between life, university and work.
The College really focuses on getting you “job ready” as I received a job offer while participating in my practical placement. Thus after boringly only signing up for the Certificate III in Fitness, there really was no other option than to continue on with the Certificate IV of Fitness. They will definitely be in my thoughts should I consider any of their short course options
After 5 months of dedicated study I am now a certified Personal Trainer at FitFast (www.fitfast.net.au) Personal Training Studio, Carlton, VIC and am currently continuing towards my goals of obtaining my doctorate in physiotherapy and opening up my own personal training studio and athletic performance centre.
I am proud to be an ambassador for the Australian College of Sport & Fitness going forward into the health and fitness industry and offer my gratitude to the College, Paul and Alyssa for all your help throughout this journey!
I recently completed my Certificate III and IV in Fitness via distance learning with the Australian College of Sport and Fitness. The flexibility of the course worked perfectly around my hectic schedule. The tutor who was assigned to me was fantastic and answered every concern and query that I had, straight away.
The distance course was thoroughly detailed and easy to follow. Additionally, I really loved how my tutor would go into great detail and elaborate on a question in an assignment, in order for me to not only gain a deeper understanding of the subject at hand, but also to assist me further my knowledge in the health and fitness industry. I completed a Bachelor’s Degree last year, but my passion had always been in health and fitness. To be able to help and encourage society to lead an active, healthy and happy lifestyle is something that drives me.
Upon completion of my qualifications, I gained employment within the first week. Currently I work at Anytime Fitness Labrador on the Gold Coast, and I LOVE IT!
The experience that I have had studying my Certificate IV through the Australian College of Sport and Fitness, has been a truly positive one and I recommend studying through them to anyone!
Sport, fitness and “running around” had always been a part of my life as a child. At age 16, I became a coach through my Little Athletics Centre, took Physical Education as senior subject at school, and later studied an Education degree with Human Movement Studies at university: all driven by my passion to help kids be as fit as they can be. Whilst studying some sports science classes at university and continuing my passion for coaching track events, I also studied Certificate III part time at TAFE, and it was here that I discovered the differences, challenges and a passion in training all populations!
After finishing university, gaining a very full on full time job and unfortunately not enjoying the experience as much as I had hoped, I chose to complete my Certificate IV by distance education. Over a twelve month period, I was able to complete my studies and assignments during school holidays and in what little time I did have to myself between the paperwork at school. From the start, ACSF provided me with the best financial deal to study, within my own terms, provided me with all the materials and information that I needed, and there was always someone there at the end of an email or a phone call if I was stuck. My mentor, Rob, always gave adequate and helpful feedback on my module assignments and case studies – whether the answers were correct or incorrect, which furthered my knowledge and understanding. If Rob was temporarily unavailable to speak to, the staff in the office always had answers or returned calls with the right information in record time! I enjoyed my placement with an excellent personal trainer of 20 years’ experience, enjoyed meeting and learning to train a range of clients with a range of needs and goals, and am now a qualified personal trainer myself!
To anyone who is looking at studying through ACSF, again, everything you need is generously provided. The only thing that is missing from achieving “success”, is the want, the will and the discipline to get it done: which all comes down to YOU! I did it, you can too!
I have always been active and played soccer at a high level in my youth and early 20’s in NSW, and continued an active lifestyle even whilst working full time and moving to the UK.
In my early 30s, I came back to Australia but injured my lower back and stopped training completely due to the strain and fear of aggravating the injury. I wasn’t fit any longer and basically just worked my 9 to 5 job, and lived with the family life of domesticated bliss, and found it incredibly difficult to get back into a regular fitness routine as year after year flew by.
Then in my early 40s, I decided to get back into shape and read up on some techniques that would get me fit without aggravating my back injury. As I got fit, people at work, many much younger than me, asked how I was managing to do it, and I realized that many had similar issues like me with work and family life, as well as various injuries or maybe it was laziness, forcing them to lose motivation and make excuses with the lack of time as to why they couldn’t look after themselves. But I noticed many comments from family, friends and work colleagues saying that I had motivated them to at least make a start to get back into shape. So I started helping people in my own time and thought this could be something I could do at a more professional level.
So I came across ACSF and decided to do the online courses for Certificate III & IV in Fitness, learnt a hell of a lot from them which basically gave me the professional grounding, knowledge and confidence to do what I love, and now, in my mid-40s, I am able to help people of all ages get into shape and motivate them by sharing my experiences and changing their lives.
I highly recommend the courses through ACSF as there’s always support and an answer to any question or query you may have.
I discovered my passion for the industry as a 14 year old cricketer who was prescribed an intensive S&C program (which introduced me to the squat, deadlift, row, etc.) to recover from a number of overuse injuries which were the result of weaknesses. The passion kept growing and growing as I got older and learnt more independently before I decided to pursue a career in fitness. I completed my Certificate III & IV in Fitness with ACSF and have since progressed onto university to study my BSc (Exercise & Sport Science) and as well as complete other course such as: AWF Level 1 Weightlifting, ASC Level 1 Powerlifting and my Level 1 Australian Strength & Conditioning Association Licence which are all on the pathway to my career goal as working as a S&C coach with elite athletes.
