Sport & Exercise
If you are into sport and exercise and want to know more about how your body responds and adapts to exercise, then this is the programme for you.
Find out how your body reacts to training and what things you should be including in your training to improve your sports performance and fitness. Have a look at some of the common training tools, fitness methods and models and apply these to yourself and others. Train in a different environment with up-to-date instructors and get a feel for the other options you could go on to study to be able to work in the sport, health and fitness industry.
As the saying goes ‘without your health you don’t have wealth’, take the time to explore this widely growing career option while getting to know more about yourself and your training.

Shayla is really enjoying her Sport & Exercise class where she puts the theory of exercise she has learnt into action. She says the course is packed with action and variety and is never boring as it relates to future job opportunities in the health and fitness area. Shayla is considering a future career as either a personal trainer or a physiotherapist and she says that the course is “real life, focused learning.”
Course highlights for Shayla were the day the class spent paddle boarding out to Haulashore Island and learning about biomechanics and how different groups of muscles within the body work.
Shayla would recommend the course to students who have an interest in sports and a healthy lifestyle. She enjoys interacting with the fulltime NMIT students in the Diploma course. “We have the chance to learn from watching the older students.”
Although she attends Trades Academy every Friday, Shayla manages to keeps up to date with her other school work with the support of her teachers at Nayland and Google Classroom.
