Our Values

At the Exercise Academy we want to ensure everyone’s experience is empowering, and that education is delivered in an encouraging and supportive environment, but still allows for individual accountability.

We promise you an educational journey with challenging and rewarding knowledge which, if embraced, can lead to many opportunities and career paths as an exercise professional.

We value each student's live-journey and endeavour to facilitate this knowledge to booster the overall learning experience. We value not only the quality of the education being delivered, but also how it is being delivered.



Exercise Academy staff are experienced, qualified exercise and tertiary education professionals who have extensive and current exercise and wellbeing industry networks.  They are passionate about delivering safe, effective exercise instruction underpinned by sound science-based principals and concepts.  They understand the power of continual improvement and therefore apply that practice to their own careers and to facilitating learning.

Why should I enrol with the Exercise Academy?

Our definition of success for each student is that they are career-ready. This means our graduates enter the marketplace equipped and prepared with the right attitudes, skills and knowledge. There are no shortcuts when it comes to being an exercise professional, when our graduates commence their careers, their success is a reflection of our education.

We consider Exercise Academy to be big on continuous improvement and creating positive attitudes within our communities.  This is why our students will return time and again for further professional development.
