With 20 years+ of experience in group fitness (I passed my Exercise to Music Course in 2000), I want to do more to make exercise fun for everyone!
Do it! Befriend personal trainers and instructors - ask them about their experiences or do some taster sessions with them. Immerse yourself with those people, and you won't go far wrong.Darren J Sage
I knew I could be well-suited to working in the fitness industry when I saw other instructors and thought, “I could do a better job than them”. Their heart wasn’t in it – they wanted to be anywhere but where they were. That shows.
