Are you looking for a certified instructor to teach you outdoor fitness activities? If so, you're in luck! The National Commission of Certification Agencies (NCCA) regulates certifications and educational material for personal trainers, group exercise instructors, fitness trainers, and health professionals. Tulane students have the opportunity to enroll in an accredited outdoor fitness certification program and learn from the fitness staff at Tulane Campus Rec. The outdoor fitness certification program is an intensive online workshop that teaches you how to create, structure, package, and present your own outdoor fitness sessions for personal training and group fitness classes. The program provides you with the tools to develop your outdoor fitness practice with useful information and specific methodologies, all science-based, that you can put into practice right away.
You'll learn the scientifically proven benefits of outdoor physical training, the components of outdoor fitness, the design of dynamic programs, training and sessions, specific exercises, their implementation and progression, the appropriate technique in terms of form and function, adaptations to the outdoor environment, teaching methods and signs, safety and injury prevention, as well as how to use any environment for training. Group fitness classes are a great way to get fit. Working in small groups helps develop trust between members, commitment to an exercise routine, and fitness goals. The ACE Group's fitness instructor certification combines the evidence-based foundations of group fitness with the behavioral change philosophy characteristic of ACE. This will differentiate you as a compassionate group fitness instructor who allows class participants to take the initiative on their own journey.
From indoor strength training to outdoor dance-based workouts to online classes for the mind and body, ACE Group's fitness instructor certification gives you the versatility needed to keep your career and community moving.
