Central YMCA has joined forces with Nike to re-launch the ‘YMCA Fitness Training Academy - Powered by Nike’, which is a free, two year Personal Training course and alternative to A-Levels or college. Together, they’re breaking barriers to empower and support even more 16 to 18 year olds into the fitness industry.
Two great brands, one common goal – to make the fitness industry as accessible as possible for young people. This sector still has barriers to entry, which prevent the next generation from fulfilling their potential and having successful careers.
Central YMCA and Nike want to create more sustainable employment opportunities in an industry which young people are passionate about. ‘YMCA Fitness Training Academy – Powered by Nike’ embodies Central YMCA’s mission to change lives through education and wellbeing and Nike’s vision of empowering young people through sport.
