As we all know fitness professionals don’t make a lot of money. We do it because we love it! However, I don’t think that should mean that we end up paying over $100/month for cert fees..With that said what do you think about taking a well known fitness class (For ex. Zumba and calling it a “Latin cardio dance class”?) Most licensed fitness programs charge at least $10/month so if you have multiple certs it can really add up quickly. I know taking these trainings can be very valuable for learning more, but to have multiple certs and maintaing the fees each month seems a little crazy. Do any of you take branded fitness classes and changed the name, but use the same concepts to avoid paying hefty fees each month?
Been a while since this was answered but it’s something I’ve been pondering myself recently. There’s a fitness program I do that is branded and actually quite unique. I’ve been addicted to this system for over 4 years now and people keep telling me to get my cert. Problem is the politics of this company sucks. However it has also dawned on me that nobody can copyright how someone moves. That’s what freedom is about (or one aspect of it at least) So basically what’s stopping me from taking the system, putting my own spin on it and re-branding it under a different name
