"A really enjoyable course to do – with lots of valuable tips for new instructors and helpful reminders for those who have been “in the game” for longer. Converting a “doubter” into a “regular” is one of the greatest victories a group fitness instructor can have – and as this course shows, it’s all done within the first 10 minutes of the class. Get participants hooked early with simple moves that they feel successful executing. They won’t even realise they’ve moved on to the more complex stuff and they’ll be back next week."
