With great joy, we announce the collaboration between HERC and Spartan Fitness, the largest fitness club in Bahrain.
Within the development strategy of our Education Department, after successfully testing our teaching system for a couple of years in the UAE, we are expanding our influence in other geographical areas of the Middle East. Furthermore, as our so-called ”360 degrees” system relies on the simultaneous development of all three departments, further expansion of the teaching system is expected to be followed by collaborations in the exercise and sport science research domain.
The agreement with Spartan Fitness is based on the education of Exercise Professionals in the Kingdom of Bahrain, with the first visit planned for October 2022. Aside from entry-level courses, there will also be a few specializations courses aiming to support the growth and further specialization of Bahrain’s Fitness and sporting sector. In addition, coaches will earn Internationally recognized diplomas accredited by UK’s OFQUAL. Equally important, they will be able to upgrade their knowledge with the latest, evidence-based tools and techniques to help them excel in their profession. David Erdelyi, Spartan Fitness manager, and Dragan Stankic, head of HERC’s Education Department, played key roles in achieving this agreement.
It’s a great moment to be reminded of a well-known saying ”science to practice.” Based on the vast international experience of our team members, we created a back-loop with a ”practice to science” approach that gives excellent results. Therefore, we look forward to showcasing it to the Exercise Professionals in Bahrain.
