Taught by qualified Fitness Alberta trainers, topics covered include: leadership and professionalism, the basic components of a fitness class, cueing, how to use music and legal responsibility and accountability.  You'll learn how to develop movement combinations, analyze exercises for their applications and benefits, and you will also learn considerations for special populations.
