Group Fitness Instructor Training

You will learn how the body works through basic anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology; the components of a group fitness class by learning proper cueing, form and technique, music selection, and choreography. The Group Fitness Instructor Training workshop will give you the basic tools and knowledge to prepare for not only a national certification but will be essential for your audition to become an IM-REC Group Fitness Instructor.
