I have experience instructing dance class: I used to teach hip hop and African dancing and currently I conduct circuit training with a total of 5-7 women in at my friends house. Other than that I have never taught in a gym or have experience training one with in one. I am planning on moving out to California and I want to know , what to do and say as I apply for health clubs!
I recommend finding a Mentor that will allow you to Shadow at their Facility. Although you are not getting paid for your time you are still learning. I was blessed to find mentor that allows me to spend time training his clients as he shadows me and gives me valuable feedback. This gives me the experience I need working with clients.He has also introduced me to several other trainers that I can network with.
