Description

The Group Strength Program Design Certificate is one of two tracks in our powerful streaming video-based home study program that will help you develop critical foundational skills. Created for group exercise instructors, but also valuable for personal trainers who are making the leap to teach group strength and boot camps. This education is valuable for the individual instructor or personal trainer hoping to sharpen or layer skills onto their existing base, but also invaluable for program directors who are trying to grow and train their staffs. Program Features:

  • Covers the essentials of group exercise, group strength foundations and group strength training program design.
  • Presented by IDEA’s elite presenters this certificate program will progress your instructors through up to 8 hours of material to prepare them for homework and exams that accompany the video curriculum.
  • Successful completion of the program is rewarded with an IDEA Certificate of Completion.
  • Includes up to 7 hours of CECs/CEUs from ACE, ACSM, NASM, NFPT, NCCPT, and WITS, and a bonus streaming video on how to become and extraordinary teacher.

    I've already completeted Powerful Teaching: Group Ex Essentials Course Course as part as the choreography certificate. Can I just apply it to group strength program design? How would I do that?

  • by Stephanie Graham on Jan 21, 2015

    Thank you for your questions! Our home study courses do not have AAFA credit because AAFA does not accept correspondence courses (including home study courses) from third party providers.

    Good question, Kimberly. Are there AFAA credits offered?
