OVERVIEW

According to ‘Public Health England’ a remarkable 62% of adults were overweight or obese in England in 2012, and 6% of people aged 17 years or older had diagnosed diabetes in England in 2013. Rates of Obesity and Diabetes are also increasing both in the UK and overseas. Both these health conditions are massively affected by exercise and diet, and therefore Dr’s tend to recommend that most individuals classified as obese or diabetic try to lead a more active lifestyle and to adhere to a health promoting diet. Consequently there are a number of individuals who require specialised fitness guidance and support, which takes into account their unique physiology and psychology, in order to initiate and adhere to an exercise regime and diet that is safe and effective.

The Level 4 Certificate in Exercise and Nutritional interventions for Obesity and Diabetes provides learners with the knowledge and skills to be able to safely and effectively prescribe exercise sessions specifically designed for individuals suffering with Obesity and Diabetes. Successful achievement of this qualification will enable the fitness professional to exercise such clients, whether that’s working individually within a gym or other fitness environment, or perhaps within a group-exercise setting. Those fitness professionals who possess The Level 4 Certificate in Exercise and Nutritional interventions for Obesity and Diabetes are the ideal candidates to train these ‘higher-risk’ clients in  gym-environments when working as a Fitness Instructor or Personal Trainer.

Achievement of the Level 4 Certificate in Exercise and Nutritional interventions for Obesity and Diabetes provides entry onto the Register of Exercise Professionals at Level 4. The qualification is ideal for individuals who have already obtained the Level 3 Diploma in Exercise Referral as a means to increase the specialist nature of their knowledge and skills, raise their REPS status, progress their careers, and potentially increase their employability and earning potential.
