A health and physical fitness course for physical instructors and keep-fit club instructors has ended at the National Sports College (NSC), Winneba in the Central region.
The training course was organised by the NSC in collaboration with the National Sports for All Association of Ghana (NASFAAG).
The session was officially opened by Mr. Noah Bagerbaseh, the Technical Director of the College.
He said, as a home of sports development in the country, they would continue to work towards the development of the human resources in the sports industry.
Mr. Bagerbaseh thanked the participants and resource persons for making the course a reality and encouraged the participants to put into practice the knowledge they acquired from the resource persons.
Dr. Emmanuel Sarpong, a lecturer at the University of Education, Winneba and Mr. Emmanuel Assasie of the University of Ghana were the resource persons.
According to the instructors, most fitness instructors across the country have been using the wrong training methods and have over the years created problems for individuals.
That explains why the course had been designed to help instructors to acquire new trends in fitness training.
They admonished the participants to go out and give their best after the course to ensure Ghana becomes healthy.
Dr Emmanuel Owusu Ansah, Technical Advisor at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, commended the college for coming up with the training course which falls within their mandate.
He also advised the participants to replicate whatever they have achieved in their communities so that it would be of benefit to their colleagues who were not able to attend the training course.
Nana Adu Mankata, President of NASFAAG, advised the participants to implement whatever they learnt in their various fields and sectors. –GNA
