The purpose of this workshop is to provide current and future group fitness instructors the skills to take them to the next level when it comes to leading an invigorating and successful fitness class. All too often instructors are thrown into teaching without ever learning what it takes to be a successful leader. Here, we will hone in on what you don't learn in your training and discuss aspects of being a fitness instructor outside of the actual workout program. We will cover traits that an excellent group fitness leader should have such as humble confidence, professional appearance and inviting personality. Topics ranging from music selection, post class logs, to sales training will also be included in the discussion. This detailed workshop will teach you how to enhance the experience for your clients as well as develop relationships with them.
