Hello! Welcome to motive8 IQ, if you follow us on social media you may have previously known us as motive8 CPD. We’ve been a bit quiet recently, but have recently rebranded as motive8 IQ so we thought we would say ‘Hi’ and let you know about the exciting plans we have ahead!
When we set up motive8 CPD a few years ago, we focused solely on CPD courses for already qualified personal trainers, but we found that we were missing out on educating and coaching those individuals who were not qualified but were interested in studying health and fitness courses such as their Level 2 Fitness Instructor Qualification and Level 3 Personal Trainer Qualification. So we’ve had a re-brand and are now known as motive8 IQ.
In the last year we have become endorsed by awarding body Active IQ so we can deliver their Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing and Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training, very soon we are hoping to add further workshops and courses such as the Level 2 Award in Kettlebell Training, Level 2 Award in Suspension Training and Level 2 Award in Circuit Training to our portfolio and later this year we will also be offering the Level 3 Award in Education & Training.
We’ve also spent a lot of time training our personal training team to become Tutors and Assessors. For us, this is really important. We don’t want any Tom, Dick or Harry delivering our courses! We want to not only reward our loyal team with career progression, but we also want to employ a team of enthusiastic tutors who we know are passionate about sharing their knowledge and experiences with the learners on their courses. And we know our team of personal trainers definitely fit this bill!
We’ve partnered up with Leeds University to offer our Level 2 Fitness Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer courses at their amazing sports facility, The Edge, and our first course launches this September! We’re also in the process of securing a venue to use in London. How exciting, we can’t wait! We’ve decided to take a ‘blended learning’ approach to the courses we offer so that people have the flexibility of still working or studying whilst completing one of our courses.
Between them, the directors of motive8 IQ have a hell of a lot of experience of working in the fitness industry. One of the things we can get a tad frustrated by is hearing about other people who work in the fitness industry and their frustration about the substandard fitness instructor and personal trainer courses which are around. Our mission is to help to raise industry standards and become a recognised provider of fitness courses in the UK by using those enthusiastic tutors we talked about early to inspire the learners on their courses to become the best trainers they can be!
