This is a semester long program that provides UWM Students the opportunity to gain knowledge and practical experience in teaching the basic components of a group exercise class. This experience is designed to allow students to learn from and be mentored by current instructors, program assistants and the Program Director.
What our Program Participants have said:
“Group X instructor is the best job I’ve had. I love seeing participants come back to my class weekly, as well as seeing them improve. The training process wasn’t a “competition for the job”, instead everyone was accepting, friendly, and wanted me to succeed. The training process effectively eased you into teaching a diverse, modifiable class for all participants. All in all, I highly recommend becoming a group x instructor!”
– Danielle, Sophomore in Industrial Engineering
“From the Group X Instructor program, I learned how to illustrate the importance of fitness and how it can be achieved through a variety of diverse ways. While instructing, I’ve learned to adapt quickly, provide the understanding for why form and technique is important, and on top of all, let my personality shine through to make my class empowering, high-spirited, and fun.”
-Claire, Sophomore in Psychology
