how do I become a certified instructor?

7 Answers | Asked by K.O. Onufry on Jun 24, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 26, 2015

I would just add that in yoga what is considered 'certified' follows a somewhat different model than in the other areas you mention. It used to be much more fluid, but in the past couple of decades it has become usual for people to take a training that covers specified basic material. Yoga, unle...

Thoughts about taking a branded fitness class and making your own class?

6 Answers | Asked by Christy Sanchez on Jun 24, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 24, 2015

Whether one would consider this an act of civil disobedience in the face of an unjust system or intellectual theft probably varies. Certainly knock offs exist in many areas of commerce.... store brands for example, pirated movies are another. Sometimes things are clearly legal, sometimes clearly n...

i think i have a class format worth Patenting, can anyone give me your experience with such a thing?

3 Answers | Asked by Andrea Bowden on Jun 22, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 24, 2015

Patents, as I recall from a friend who worked in this field, can not be taken for a process that is done entirely with just the human body. I suspect what you want is trademarking, but Harris is right... even a fitness pro who has engaged in this arena will not be able to give you better advice tha...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 23, 2015

If you need to renew a personal trainer certification you should contact the agency with whom you certified, e.g. ACE, or ACSM, or so on. If you need to get CECs to renew a certification you can do that through Ideafit by clicking on the CECs/CEUs at the top. You just need to make sure your cert...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 20, 2015

It would probably make sense for you to call the company and ask what the rate would be for your combination of work. This is particularly true as you do both land and water. If you are an RYT you could also ask for a quote from the company through which they offer insurance, making sure it cove...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 19, 2015

I am less familiar with the girl scouts than with the boy scouts, but I am assuming the camp focuses a lot on outdoor activities, with gross motor skills, as well as crafting and social skills. Certainly yoga is a big go to for mind body exploration. Having props is great, but are in no way nece...

are there any courses in motor skills learning?

2 Answers | Asked by Velda Dingle-Jones on Jun 18, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 19, 2015

Are you asking whether on the IDEA site any of the online CECs or CEUs cover that topic? Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be possible to search through the available CECs with a specific term, but only through certain categories they provide. I suspect if you try the topic "sports conditioning" yo...

I think this page gives you the answer to the question you are asking, but it would make sense to call the company and talk to them before you sign up, just to make sure all your questions are answered. http://www.ideafit.com/fitness-insurance/group-fitness-instructor-liability-insurance

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 13, 2015

I am sure you will get a number of good ideas. I am not sure there is one 'best' idea, because location, size, competition, available mass transit, type of offerings, focus, etc.... there are so many variables. One general thing I would say is that with the people I have seen succeed there are s...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Jun 12, 2015

When you use the word 'therapist' do you mean 'physical therapist'? And are you looking to hire someone to work for you as a therapist (physical or otherwise) and also to teach the class? Or are you looking to hire someone just to teach twice a week? Or are you looking for a volunteer? You cou...
