Are you a barre student who takes classes on the regular? A group fitness instructor looking to add barre to your teaching repertoire? Already teaching barre and hoping for a fresh perspective? If you've answered YES to any of these questions, we're certain our Barre Intensity barre training program is for you. Read on to see what you can expect from our live or online barre certification options depending on your fitness experience.
New to group fitness instruction
WHAT TO EXPECT
Be ready to learn it ALL. In 10 - 14 hours you will learn the foundations of barre, alignment, cuing, choreography, transitions, flow, musicality and more. It will be information overload, but don't fret! Our manual is easy to follow, organized section by section, exercise by exercise and it's yours to keep to refer back to anytime you need a refresher. Our Master Trainers come from all walks of life and fitness backgrounds. They have the ability to relate and guide you into the ease of becoming a Barre Intensity Instructor sooner than later. And if that isn't enough, We have BarreNow where you access live classes, playlists and handouts for you to use in practice and while teaching!
We're going to give it to you straight, it will take a while. We estimate anywhere from 2-3 months of committed practicing before you're ready to begin teaching a room full of paying clients. You may even find yourself benefiting from a general group fitness certification in addition to our barre training & certification program. Looking for a blueprint on how to program your classes and practice? We've got one for you here.
The Group Fitness instructor
Teaching other class formats but not barre
WHAT TO EXPECT
Because of your experience in group fitness already, you'll absorb the most from our trainings. More than likely you'll come already knowing alignment, how to put together a playlist and even some of the baseline choreography we present. You'll leave with the understanding of what makes barre, in particular Barre Intensity, truly different from other genres of fitness. Class programming will be another big takeaway as we hammer home our class outline and how to layer & build our low impact exercises to truly make this a workout for all fitness levels.
Expect about 3-6 weeks of practice time before introducing this class to your regulars. If you love creating your own choreography, fantastic! You're welcome to do so. If you're hoping for more turnkey choreography, because really who has time to prep another class, we've got you covered. With Barre Now you'll find an easy way to gain instant access to current class videos, written choreography and trending music. We all should have that "little black dress" as a staple in our closets and Barre Intensity should become that "little black dress" in your fitness armoire!
The Barre Instuctor
Currently teaching barre fitness classes
WHAT TO EXPECT
You may know most of what we present but we promise you this, our trainings will give you those "aha" moments you may have been in need of finding! Learning those precious nuggets of information that you can implement into your classrooms the next day are part of what makes our trainings even better for the most experienced!
Two of the main things we teach in a Barre Intensity training focus on: transitions and flow and how to layer and build within a barre class. We help you bring the intensity into your barre class if you're looking for more of a challenge and we help you build on to those combinations that maybe needed an extra umph you've been hoping to give to your clients!
You'll begin implementing what you've learned the very next class and have your clients saying "that was the best class you've taught yet"! Who doesn't love hearing that?!
