Designed to supplement the expertise of instructors who are currently teaching pre-choreographed programs, this instructor training will cover foundational knowledge of exercise and movement science and how it applies to group exercise class design, implementation and modification. Participants will also learn teaching techniques, strategies for improved safety and other essential instructional skills that will enrich their group classes. Fitness professionals who attend this one-day course will leave with time-tested ACE strategies that will help them take their careers to the next level. Following successful completion of a final online assessment to be completed at home, instructors will hold an ACE specialty certification.
"This class was excellent! It enriched my teaching experience and gave me the basic tools I needed to understand fitness at a higher level. I believe every person who is considering teaching Zumba or other formats should take this ACE Group Exercise Leadership Specialty Certification. If this had been offered to me when I first started I would have taken it immediately."

"Given the fact that a certification from ACE is highly recognized in the fitness industry, I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to register for this specialty certification course. The presenter was extremely knowledgeable, and the delivery and presentation were phenomenal. The course really emphasized proper body mechanics during a workout and how movements prepare you for daily life. I feel more confident now as a Zumba instructor, especially since I now know the movements I teach are safe, effective, functional and enjoyable for everyone."
