Are group fitness instructors at your facility being paid for the time it take to prepare their group fitness classes?

8 Answers | Asked by User on Sep 17, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 20, 2015

I've worked in the field for decades and have never been paid for prep time. It is kind of like when you own a studio or training business and there are the hours you are actually with clients/students, like the tip of the iceberg you see, and all the other time that is below the surface you do not...

Burn out! What's next??

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 15, 2015

Before you make any changes, perhaps it might be of use to take a vacation.... not just to vacate or play, but to take an inward trip. My favorite place to go is a yoga center in the Berkshire mountains.... I am sure there are places like that near you..... go someplace, take a notebook and do some...

How often do you change your routine/choreography for fitness classes?

6 Answers | Asked by Christy Sanchez on Sep 06, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 13, 2015

All of your answers are really interesting. I think this is something we all grapple with... too much change and they can't adapt, not enough and they get bored. Yoga is a completely different animal, but with the other classes I teach, like most of the others I add and build on to what came befor...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 13, 2015

I had a really interesting workshop at the 2014 Idea conference about doing Pilates with an older population with bone density issues. It was really interesting, and of course, we are likely to see more of this in our aging population. I suspect it is frustrating that rather than a list that wil...

What is the best way to increase leg flexibility?

6 Answers | Asked by Kate Henrichson on Sep 10, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 13, 2015

I work on this all the time. It is one of the things that many people come into yoga looking for. Obviously the first thing, which I would imagine you have already done as this is an existing client, is to make sure there are no underlying issues that would affect how stretching can be done. T...

Do your newly certified instructors take other instructors classes?

7 Answers | Asked by Deborah Kulmer on Sep 12, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Sep 13, 2015

I love taking other instructor's classes. When I was first working in fitness I did it a lot. These days, as I work part time, and am always struggling for enough time to teach, do what is needed for my family, prep for teaching, and maintain my own meditative and physical practices I don't alway...

To produce a fitness dvd and sell it at fairs such as ideafit or supermarkets what documents do you need? Or do you have any tip

2 Answers | Asked by Julie Rammal on Aug 24, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 28, 2015

You have asked two questions, one about a clothing line, and one about producing DVDs. The starting point will be similar in either case. You need a good business plan. It might be easier to start with one thing, as that way you can put your resources (time, energy, funds) in one place and build ...

is The Health Sciences Academy a trustworthy source for a certification?

2 Answers | Asked by Ginger Poling on Aug 25, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 28, 2015

I had a look at them, but find it a little difficult to judge, as this is is a UK organization, and I do not know what the standards of professional credentialing are there. If you are planning to use this in the states there are a couple of things to think about. This may be true in the UK as w...

NASM acquired AFAA

5 Answers | Asked by Nancy Korf on Aug 26, 2015

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 28, 2015

That is very interesting. I can find nothing on the web site of either one about this. AFAA has been around for a long time, but I always found the decision not to set themselves up for NCCA accreditation as a little counterintuitive. One large place I worked actually stated in their employee han...

Answered by Ariadne Greenberg on Aug 22, 2015

I am posting a link to a helpful site, in case you haven't seen it. The academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is a professional association (kind of like Idea is for fitness professionals). The short video I am sending is about the importance of hydration for kids, especially when they are physicall...
