The purpose of a fitness instructor is to build fitness participation of new and existing members through fitness experiences that meet their needs. An Instructor delivers fitness instruction to individuals with the use of& equipment (Fitness Instructor) or to a group through fitness classes (Group Fitness Instructor). Both types of the occupation have the same purpose and require the same level of knowledge, skills and competences. Therefore, most of the requirements are the same for both occupation types. However, to be able to fulfil this purpose, each of the occupation types may require additional knowledge, skills and competences specific for that type.
