About the stay

Strength - both physical and theoretical

Before we get started: Yes, our last name is “Gymnastikhøjskole”. But don’t be nervous. At Health & Fitness, we focus on weights and exercise, and not on trampolines. Instead, you learn how to use exercise equipment, your head and your body so you stay healthy, get ready for health or sports-related studies and can throw yourself directly into a life as a certified personal trainer.

Whether you are already an incarnated training hero, or the opposite with a desire to make a change makes no difference. Here you don’t get a brief explanation about circulation, metabolism and protein powder, and we won’t tell you that you are six months from looking like a marble-carved film hero. In return, we teach you how to achieve your goals – whether aesthetics, strength, technique or health are most important. The reality about training is that it requires both effort and knowledge … But apart from that it’s actually a lot of fun. You get both at Ollerup.

Balance between theory and practice

Our goal with the course is to make you better, stronger and smarter – both inside and outside the gym. You will receive serious and professionally based teaching, practical skills, strong technique and will be able to handle both your and others’ training. You may want to become faster, bigger, stronger, slimmer or healthier, and you may want to be able to pass this knowledge on to others. We will help you with that.

In Health & Fitness you get knowledge, experience and high-quality teaching. We go in depth with your training and we pull the theory out of the classroom and into our unique training facilities. That way, you get the theoretical and practical foundation that enables you to help others achieve their training goals, just as you achieve your own. You develop abilities to motivate and coach, get a thorough grasp of the exercise-related anatomy, become sharp in navigating diet and nutrition and become acquainted with a wide range of different forms of exercise.

 

Train yourself in training others

During the course, you will get – in addition to perhaps the world’s best high school stay – the opportunity to be trained as a certified personal trainer. With a voluntary, final exam, you will receive the recognized Level 4 EREPS certification and a EuropeActive certificate – both recognized industry certificates from multinational umbrella organizations.

With a strong, professional ballast from skilled teachers and hands-on experience in training both yourself, your fellow students and others, you get a broad and thorough preparation for a lot of health-related fields of study. If your dreams draw you to university as a sports teacher, medical student, physiotherapist or chiropractor, Ollerup’s Health & Fitness course is a good start. During your course, we visit personal trainers and other boarding schools and are visited by external instructors with backgrounds such as Olympic weightlifters, lecturers or who have expertise in other niches of the training world.
