Group Exercise

Do you love the group exercise environment?


There is nothing like the energy and motivation you can get from a great group fitness class. The music, the movement, the community... all of it makes for a dynamic and fun experience that makes time fly by.


Why not start a new career and inspire others in the environment you love?


If you already are a fitness professional, teaching group fitness classes can provide extra income and serve as a valuable pipeline for new personal training clients!

Group Fitness Instructors need hands-on practice


Many people take the leap and get certified to teach group classes. This usually only requires attending a weekend workshop and maybe passing a multiple choice test; or sometimes not even this much.

However, we don't think two days and a test is enough to teach you everything you need to know to run a fun and engaging class; and you shouldn't either. Unfortunately, many people never start their new careers because they never get the right education and never gain the right experience to get started.

Our comprehensive course gets you AFAA-certified and ready to work FAST!


Make no mistake. This is not a cookie-cutter weekend certification workshop. Our 6-week course is the first of its kind in South Florida. It teaches you the knowledge and skills needed to begin your career as a successful AFAA-certified group fitness instructor.

Included is AFAA’s Group Exercise Instructor (GFI) certification exam, educational modules on anatomy & exercise science, and of course hands-on instruction with designing and presenting group exercise classes.

  Specific topics covered include:

  • Understanding the principles of group fitness instruction

  • Developing the ability to design group fitness classes

  • Effectively teaching a class to motivate and inspire your participants

What is included?

  • AFAA Group Exercise hardcover textbook

  • 24+ hours of live in-class learning

  • Teaching skills and practical experience 

  • Online study modules

  • Practice exams

  • GFI certification exam voucher

  • Teaching skills and practical experience
