Level 2 Certificate in Improving Personal Exercise, Health and Nutrition

Would any of your employees benefit from completing one of our self-improvement courses?

This qualification aims to equip your employees with a detailed understanding of the concepts of health and well-being, including basic anatomy and physiology. They will learn about the role of nutrition in exercise, including energy requirements and fluid replacement, and then learn about how to measure personal fitness levels and create a personal programme of exercise and nutrition.

Upon completion of this course, your employees could go on to study one of our other self-improvement courses, such as Nutrition, Health and Food Awareness.

Please note: Your employees will be required to complete a fitness test as part of this course. If they become unable to be active and therefore cannot complete the fitness tests (I.e a timed walk) or log anything in their exercise plan (this could be from any fitness level start point such as stretches, walking, a physio plan etc), a pass cannot be given.


Unit 1: Understand health, well-being and exercise

In this unit, your employees will cover the concepts of health and well-being, factors that could have a negative impact on health and well-being, factors that can affect personal motivation, and the basics of anatomy and physiology.

Unit 2: Understand the role of nutrition in exercise

Unit 3: Plan and prepare for personal exercise and nutrition

In the third and final unit of this course, your employees will learn about the importance of exercising safely, how to measure personal fitness levels, how to follow an appropriate personal programme of exercise and nutrition, and how to evaluate a personal programme of exercise and nutrition.
