Group Fitness Instructor Workshop

This unique workshop is specifically geared to the needs of Group Fitness Instructors who teach a specific format, and who need to learn how to modify and coach the pregnant or postpartum clients who attend their classes.  Instead of focusing on how to develop a customized pre/postnatal program, it focuses on how to alter your cues and provide important modifications to provide your pre/postnatal clients a safer and more effective experience, in a way that doesn’t disrupt your groove in class. Get answers to all your “is it safe to…” questions, practice various movements and modifications, learn the biggest mistakes most instructors make, and come away with powerful coaching tips that will benefit ALL your class participants.  Applicable for all group fitness formats (from barre to boot camp, and everything in between).

All workshop attendees receive their specialty certificate, CEUs (ACE: 0.3, NASM: 0.3, AFAA: 3.0), a copy of the presentation.  Post-workshop resources are also available.  Read on to learn more, and register.

Workshop Details

This workshop is targeted to Group Fitness Instructors of nearly all non-aquatic formats, including:

  • Boot Camp
  • HIIT
  • Strength & Conditioning
  • Barre
  • Yoga
  • Pilates (mat & reformer)
  • TRX
  • Cardio/Dance
  • Kickboxing
  • Cycling

This workshop is NOT for professionals seeking to work one-on-one with pregnant and postpartum clients, or who are interested in teaching a dedicated prenatal or postpartum class.  For these educational programs, please refer to our personal training workshop.

The content is simple, intuitive, and structured in a way that makes concepts easy to digest and apply in a group fitness setting. And don’t worry, all your “is it safe to ___” questions will be answered!  There is also plenty of time for discussion and practice.  Topics include:

  • Benefits of Exercise
  • The 5 Key changes of pregnancy you need to know
  • Pre-Class “Checklist”
  • In-Class coaching tips (structured in easy-to-remember ABC format) with distinctions between prenatal and postpartum
  • Signals to look for that could indicate potential injuries or complications, and what to do
  • CEUs (ACE: 0.3, NASM: 0.3, AFAA: 3.0)
  • Printed and electronic tip sheet summarizing key info
  • Opportunity to be promoted on Find a Professional page as a Pre/Postnatal Educated Instructor.

This is a FANTASTIC workshop, and the first course I’ve seen specifically designed for GroupX instructors. Most pre/postnatal education offerings are aimed at Personal Trainers, or people who want much more in-depth information about programming for this population, and therefore it can be difficult for GroupX instructors to apply this level of detail in their classes. I love how this workshop arms instructors with exactly what they need to know (and nothing more) to create a FAR safer and more effective experience for their pre/postnatal participants. I know this translates into fewer cancelled and frozen memberships for us, and endorse this workshop wholeheartedly!

I asked PROnatal to conduct a workshop for our instructors, and got above and beyond what I had expected! The presentation was so informative, but also very easy to understand and apply. I know the entire team felt they learned incredibly valuable information that they could immediately apply to help tailor our workouts for moms-to-be and new moms. Thank you PROnatal team!
