Fitness Instructor Training

Price: $75.00

Our in-house Fitness Instructor Training (FIT) course is your first step to teaching group fitness classes for Campus Recreation Services and inspiring active, healthy living. This 8-week course is a combination of lectures on ACE fundamentals and practical applications that will cover the basics of group exercise instruction including format options, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, injury prevention, cueing, effective class planning and more! This is not a for-credit class and does not result in a national certificate, rather, it is a first step for participants interested in teaching at the Eccles Student Life Center.


Dates: Fridays, Sept 29-Dec 8
(No meetings during Fall Break/Thanksgiving Break)
Times: 2:00pm-5:00pm each Friday
Instructors: Cairisti, Jazzy, Laura


On top of in-house training, participants are expected to attend 2+ fitness classes a week, as well as light reading, and class prep.
