Holistic Group Fitness Instructor
The Stress Management Institute for Health and Fitness Professionals™ has updated the group fitness instructor's role in the 21st century to meet the needs of today's society. Many times, individuals at a gym will only take group fitness classes. In this case, the group fitness instructor may be the only fitness professional the individual regularly comes into contact with. This is why we needed to evolve the Holistic Group Fitness Instructor™ into more of a practitioner role. This new generation of group fitness instructors is called upon to work more closely with Mind/Body Medicine Specialists™, Holistic Stress Management Consultants™, and the medical community. Holistic Group Fitness Instructors™ will offer our mind/body group fitness classes and other mind/body modalities to their class participants in either a group or private setting.
We have incorporated a Mind/Body Zone assessment™ so the Holistic group fitness instructor™ can better understand their class participant's quality of life and stress levels. We also give you access to some of the DNA tests through Toolbox Genomics so you can work with class participants on a deeper level. Only certified fitness professionals can conduct our full fitness assessment. Knowing your class participant's stress levels and disease history before taking classes can help you know how to create specialized classes for your students. Once you have this information, we teach you how to choose exercises and techniques that can specifically help each individual while instructing in a group or private setting.
Holistic Group Fitness Instructors™ will learn how to incorporate eastern and western modalities and techniques into their group classes and private sessions such as Mind/Body Myofascial Release™, AccuRolling™, Neuroll Calm™, Mindful Stretch™, health promotion, Mind/Body Art™, aromatherapy, and somatic exercises that use qi or energy that flows through the meridians of the body. The picture above demonstrates the meridians of the body and the flow of energy that may help to create homeostasis. The Holistic Group Fitness Instructor ™ will be using their new skill set within their group fitness classes and private sessions.
