The Fast Track FABS Training Programme

Welcome to the Fast Track FABS Training Programme! 

The Fast Track FABS Training Programme will teach you how to lead safe, fun and effective exercise sessions for older adults. A combination of four online units will give you an understanding of the theory behind the exercise session including why it’s important to exercise as we age, how to exercise and what to do in a class. The theory is backed by scientific principles and literature to ensure the information you receive is of the highest standard. You’ll also be taken through a series of exercise videos teaching you the exericses you can use to form a FABS class. 

You will also attend two practical training days where you will be taught by expert trainers how to deliver a class. You’ll also have a practical assessment and when successful, receive a certificate acknowledging your achievement.
