Our second annual tryouts are completed. Contact Anne Garrett for more information on the next tryout: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of Washington’s Fitness Instructor Training (F.I.T.) program prepares students to teach group fitness classes. Students learn the fundamentals of anatomy, exercise science, and group fitness instruction in a structured and supportive setting.
The program has a selective admissions process consisting of an application, tryout, and interview. It is a commitment of approximately 5 classroom/practice hours per week for two academic quarters, in addition to independent preparation time. Those who successfully complete the program are hired to teach group exercises classes at the starting rate of $15/hr. All work-eligible UW students, faculty, and staff may apply. While group exercise participation experience is highly encouraged, no teaching experience is necessary.
The next round of tryouts are slated for Autumn 2013. If you have questions or would like to be added to the contact list for the next tryout, please contact Anne Garrett, Fitness Coordinator, at email@example.com.
