Back to the books for Aaron – BCRPA Group Fitness Certification & TFL Status!

bccertThere is one area I have never obtained a formal certification – groups fitness!  This is due to the fact I have 2 left feet and teaching an aerobics / exercise to music class was a sure way to drive away clients! Now don’t misinterpret this – I have instructed groups for circuit training / stretching / teams for years as a kinesiologist, but not formally as a BCRPA Group Fitness Instructor.

So, this month I am working on my BCRPA Group Fitness Instructor & TFL designation (Trainer of Fitness Leaders).  I have a course which is Group Fitness related, but focuses on the trainer who would like to teach bootcamps and not exercise to music.  So, those wanting the BCRPA Group Fitness designation will be able to take it through KINESIOLOGISTS.CA in Langley at Fitness Unlimited in the New Year!  Keep an eye on the website or FB page for upcoming dates and times.
