I have a chance to either get a Group Exercise Certification or Piloxing Certification.
I am wondering which would be more valuable??
What I want to do is format my own class that is some HIIT, dance, and kickboxing. But I know I won’t be able to do that right off the bat because of licensing issues. So I guess my question is, what can you be hired for with JUST a Group Exercise Certification? Wouldn’t you need a specific skill anyway?
And some gyms would hire with just the specific certification of Zumba for example, no group Ex required, so then is there even a point to getting that one?
Answers very much appreciated!!
I would strongly recommend that you get a group exercise certification if you have to make a choice. There are many formats you can teach with group ex, and your idea of HIIT and dance is one of them.
Most gyms I know would not hire you without the group ex certification and would require additional credentials (such as ZUMBA) for other formats.
