Group Fitness Online
Our online Group Fitness course allows you to gain your Group Fitness certification from anywhere around the world. Being a Group Fitness Instructor is a fun way to get your workout at the same time as getting paid for it! It can be anything from a part-time hobby and source of supplementary income to a full career, depending on how much time you'd like to put into it.
Group Fitness may include classic aerobics, boot camp, group strength training, and more, and is often required in order to specialize in Spin, Zumba, and other group fitness specialty classes.
You are given 4 months to complete the Group Fitness course online from your time of purchase, but it's designed to take about 20 hours total.
Note that if you wish to be a Personal Trainer and train small groups of 4 or more, you must also have your Group Fitness certification.
The Online Group Fitness course provides you with the digital Group Fitness manual (and the hard copy if you choose that version) and a video and access to contacting us throughout for help and any questions you have. You will be required to complete and submit 11 short written assignments plus a final assignment, 8 video assignments, and 3 observation reports (meaning you must attend 3 Group Fitness classes). We will mark your assignments thoroughly and give you the feedback you need to feel confident you will be the best instructor you can be
When you complete all of your assignments for this course, we will send you a Group Fitness certificate (provided you have the prerequisites). After that, if you wish to gain BCRPA certification, you are required to teach an 8 hour practicum. To do this, it's important to get to know Group Fitness Instructors now, you can find mentors who will allow you to teach parts of their classes with them to gradually work up to your 8 hours. Once you've finished this, you can complete your Instructor Competency Evaluation (ICE), which we can mark for you over video.
If you wish to become an Older Adult Instructor, you can take the Older Adult course once your Group Fitness ICE has been approved by BCRPA.
