Once you have passed your Beginner Test out you will begin assisting with Group classes. Your focus is to learn and get actual hands on time in a group setting. By assisting you will begin to gain a level of comfort and ease with a group without the pressure of having to make all the decisions and deliver the workout. This is an important stepping stone in your development.
Do’s & Don’t
Choose classes with an approved instructor that fits within your schedule
Classes are limited to just one assistant
Focus on setting up equipment for clients before during and after class
Provide hands on assists only at the instructor’s direction.
Track Your Hours
Assistant hours are part of your total Group Class hourly requirement. Be sure to track your hours. By week 10 you will have your own Group Class to lead. Use this time wisely. You may use up to 10 hours for assistant teaching.
