Hi. I was certified by IDEA as an aerobics instructor many years ago. Taught group fitness for 25 years but let the certification expire. I am now certified as an aquatic fitness instructor through both AAAI/ISMA and AEA. I’m wondering if there is a shortcut to a GF certification without starting all over. I am certified as a senior personal trainer with ASFA; I’m also an American Red Cross CPR/First Aid Instructor. I taught Physical Education and Health for 30 years, have a Masters Degree in Public Health, and currently do personal training and teach water fitness in Boulder, CO. I’m also a presenter for Body Bar in a new program which I developed called AquaFLEX (this is the main reason I’d like to update my group fitness cert).
Congratulation on all our success! Unfortunately, you will have to earn a group fitness certification again. Somehow, after all your success, I don’t think you will have any difficulties.
Look into earning your ACE GFI credential. Once you do that your profile will be immediately updated and you will be able to build a more thorough profile on this portal.
I wish you continued success!
