Q & A on Training Workshop
Hey there Party Starter! Want to join in on our mission to energize and move the world? Awesome! – we’d love to have you on the team! Whether you’ve been teaching for years or are starting fresh, we’ll give you the tools you need to be successful. Join the movement of powerful, energetic and positive workouts that changes you from the inside out.
We want to be upfront and avoid surprises down the line. There are (2) options on beginning your journey as an EDM BODY FITNESS™ Instructor, you can register for the online training or an in-person training. So, before we dive into detail, here’s the bottom line on what’s required to become certified and stay certified with us:
– You will need access to a computer & internet to download your training materials.
1. Attending training does not guarantee certification.
2. After passing training, you need to submit an assessment video within 90 days to show that you are teaching a safe and effective class.
a. Please understand that submitting the video also does not guarantee certification, although feedback, tips and next steps are always provided.
b. You must receive an outcome of ‘PASS’ to complete the certification and be able to teach classes. There is no guarantee that all instructors will ‘PASS’ the assessment video.
c. If you have any questions about this prior to attending training, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Are there any requirements needed to become an EDM BODY FITNESS™ Instructor?
No, however it helps if you’ve already taken an EDM BODY FITNESS™ class before, or if you have previous experience in teaching group exercise classes.
Q: Do I need any special equipment for the online instructor training?
To participate in the EDM BODY FITNESS™ online training, you must have access to a computer with internet access, plus a space to dance in!
Q: May I videotape or record during training?
Still image cameras are allowed. Video or motion pictures are not allowed.
Q: What should I bring to the instructor training?
You should bring plenty of water, a sweatshirt/jacket, a towel, healthy snacks and lunch. The right type of shoe is key to easy-flowing movement. We highly recommend wearing good and supportive shoes such as cross-trainers or dance-specific sneakers. Stay away from shoes that have a lot of tread at the bottom, as those are not meant for lateral/twisting motion. Although we provide an instructor manual, have a notebook and pen to take additional notes.
Q: What happens after the instructor certification? When can I start teaching?
After completing the Instructor Training, and receiving a PASS after submitting your assessment video, you can begin teaching whenever you feel ready and comfortable. You are your own boss! Every instructor is an independent contractor, which gives you the flexibility and freedom to set your own schedule, rates, terms, agreements, etc. at any facility you choose. Although the Instructor Training shows you how to teach as well as how to create an instructor plan for an EDM BODY FITNESS™ class, you may need to practice on your own, partner with a fellow instructor and take time to choose the right selection of music for your class. Consider borrowing from the video collection you receive at the Instructor Training to get started.
Q: Where can I begin to teach EDM BODY FITNESS™ classes?
The list is endless so get creative! Consider teaching online virtual workouts, at a park or outdoor space, dance studio, gym facilities, even partner with health and wellness events. Note that some fitness facilities require their instructors to have a general group exercise certification. The EDM BODY FITNESS™ program is considered a specialty certificate, just like spin or yoga. Ask your local fitness facility what their requirements are in order for you to teach at their facility. You can always obtain an EDM BODY FITNESS™ certificate first and then obtain a general certification. Some facilities may allow you to start teaching EDM BODY FITNESS™ classes as long as you have a EDM BODY FITNESS™ certificate and evidence that you are working to obtain a general certification. Two highly recognized certifications are ACE and AFAA. For details, go to acefitness.org or afaa.com.
Q. Can I share my materials and training information with anyone else?
All of our Instructor materials are just for you. Please do not share your materials with anyone else. Your EDM BODY FITNESS™ instructor materials have copyrighted material on it that is not sharable.
