Group Fitness Experience Specialist

Excellent course, very informative with a lot of effort put it to ensure we understood what was being taught. Love the fact that we could do it online but still work as a group and give comments and feedback. Well done Emma and Vanessa. No matter what level of experience you have this is a course to enroll in.

Group Fitness Experience Specialist

A holistic blend of practical & theoretical learning to expand & enhance the fitness experience for coach & client! Emma & Vanessa deliver extraordinary wealth of knowledge & passion over 2 days that is truly captivating & life changing. Taking on all that was passed on throughout the course has helped breathe more life into the classes I lead.

Group Fitness Experience Specialist

There was a wealth of information and personal experience shared by Vanessa and Emma over the two days. Their passion for the industry transcended any limitations zoom presented, and they were able to expertly communicate complex techniques and give practical applications for every section of content. Being new to the fitness industry, I feel like I am now equipped with an abundance of knowledge, both in the science and experience of group fitness, that I am able to readily implement in my classes. This course has also inspired me to continue my learning in this field and continue to deliver an amazing Group Xperience.

Group Fitness Experience Specialist

Absolutely loved the information provided. As a fairly new instructor I didn’t receive any information on structuring my own freestyle group fitness classes. Emma and Vanessa have helped to simplify things while giving awesome information. I’ve already noticed the improvement in my class formats and my own confidence, knowing I now have so much more knowledge in the area of group fitness.

Meet Our Founders

Emma & Vanessa here. With a collective 25+ years teaching, managing, consulting, internationally presenting & educating everything group exercise, we realised how much we could give back to the industry. With the fitness landscape changing as rapidly as it is, we provide education for the innovative, experience based facility and instructor to ensure they are staying relevant in today’s and tomorrow’s group fitness world.
We believe there is no better way to deliver community, culture and complete life transformation than through exceptional group exercise experiences. This education is essential for anyone delivering group exercise: whether that be big box style, class boutiques or even small group personal training. This education takes the “style” out of what you teach (eg. Pilates, HIIT, Barre) and gives you the fundamental skills that are not taught in Cert III or any other qualification. These skills are transferable to any business and to any class you may want to teach or include.
