fun, interactive, and informative way.  You will learn how the body works through basic anatomy, physiology,

muscle selection, and choreography.  The Group Fitness Instructor Training workshop will give the basic

tools and knowledge to prepare for not only a national certification but will be essential for your audition

instructor not to teach within the TSU REC.  Track (1) will be prepared to take the national certification

under FITOUR.  the (2) track is a 5- week program that is designed to meet once or twice a week to
