Our free masterclasses cover topics – from building a business, to becoming a more effective learner – that will benefit a broad range of people, whether you’re just starting out or have already carved out a career.
MAKE IT STICK
Like reading, cooking and swinging a golf club, learning is a skill. And learning, just like any skill, needs to be learnt. Yet learning isn’t one-dimensional – you can just learn to do something; or you can learn to do something well. In this 60-minute masterclass, our Head of Education, Tom Merriman, addresses common misconceptions around how we learn, to provide effective strategies that will help you maximise your learning potential.
Communication for Leaders
Coaching communication is using communication techniques that help you get more out of people. In a modern workplace, coaching communication, and the ability to create a high-performance coaching culture, is a vital skill for leaders who want to get more out of their teams. In this 60-minute masterclass, Fitness Playground’s Head of Coaching Matt Duncan provides people with the foundations of coaching communication.
Taking the leap
Building a Business that Stands Out
2021 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Justin Ashley is Co-Founder and CEO of Fitness Playground, The Bunker gym and Fitness Playground Academy. From humble beginnings with a local bootcamp, the award-winning company has grown to over 10,000 customers and 200 staff. In this 60-minute masterclass with Q&As, Justin draws upon his successes and countless failures to share valuable insights for current or future entrepreneurs.
What we do
GIVING EVERYONE THE CHANCE TO DO WHAT THEY LOVE
Fitness Playground Academy (FPA) offers free and paid courses that provide future and current fitness professionals with the skills they actually need to enjoy a successful career they love.
FPA developed because, through running gyms with 200 customers and 10,000 members, we’re in the business of education and people development. Our Personal Trainers & Group Fitness Instructors deliver over 22,000 sessions a year. Our average Personal Trainer has 30 clients and delivers 40 sessions per week. They undergo 200 hours of education per year. Now we’re offering that education to you.
Our Masterclasses give you the chance to take insights from industry leaders. Our free Industry Insights workshop will help you decide whether the fitness industry could be the right fit for you. Our nationally recognised Certified Coach (Certificate III & IV) course will give you the qualifications to become a certified PT or Group Fitness Instructor. Our free 8-week Industry Ready Program will help you become a more confident coach and business owner. And our Internship will show you what it really takes to be successful.
It’s time to do what you love.
WE'RE PEOPLE FOCUSED

ARE THESE MASTERCLASSES RIGHT FOR ME?
Are you stuck in a career rut and wondering what’s next for you? Do you love learning and self-development? Do you need a motivation boost? Do you love hearing from inspiring industry leaders? Are you perhaps considering a new career in fitness but not sure if it’s right for you? Then come along to our free events – what have you got to lose?
DO I NEED TO PAY?
No, our Masterclasses are free events, as are our Industry Insights Workshop and Industry Ready Program. We’re able to deliver free education because Fitness Playground Academy isn’t a profit centre, due to the fact that our core business is our Fitness Playground gyms.
WHAT OTHER COURSES DOES FPA OFFER?
Our Certified Coach is our more practical and people-focused version of a Cert III & IV in Fitness. Our Certified Coach Course, which qualifies you to become a Personal Trainer, involves coaching real clients, in real gyms, under the guidance of successful professional trainers.
