What happens after the instructor training? When can I start teaching?
After completing the Instructor Training, you can begin teaching whenever you feel comfortable and ready. Every instructor is an independent contractor, which gives you the freedom to set your own schedule, rates, terms, agreements, etc. at any facility you choose.
Although the Instructor Training shows you how to teach, you may need to practice on your own and take time to choose the right selection of music.
Some fitness facilities require their instructors to have a general group exercise certification. Ask your local fitness facility what their requirements are in order for you to teach at their facility.
