GX day 2019 FAQ


What is GX day?

GX DAY is a live face-to-face event, with 4 workshops in one day. This event is for any group fitness instructor and members of the public (potential instructors) where we will learn, network and support each other. Developed by MY GROUP MOVE co-founders Marietta Mehanni and Maria Teresa Stone.

Why attend GX day?

The dual purpose is:

  1. To educate and provide support to current group fitness instructors, whether they be freestyle or pre-choreographed. The up-skilling will be generic so that regardless of modality of instruction, there will be benefit from attending the day. There will also be value for personal trainers that teach group classes to appreciate the unique skills that are required to deliver a positive exercise experience to a group of people.
  2. To provide an insight and introduction to members of the public that would be interested in becoming group fitness instructors. The idea is to demonstrate the appeal in teaching and provide some basic skills that would encourage them to consider this as a career opportunity. There is currently a massive skill shortage in group fitness and MY GROUP MOVE has a solution for this crisis.
