This is a picture of Nathalie Lacombe (middle back row), Vice President of canfitpro, welcoming us as new PRO TRAINERS.
The training camp took place last Sunday and it was a huge success. I want to thank all of you for your encouragement this past week. I made the decision to take my career to the next level after much consideration but once I accepted the challenge, I had very little time to get a presentation in order so that I could attend the training. With Peter’s help I prepared a wooden puzzle challenge that demonstrated the importance of solid program design. It was so much fun to build and demonstrate and it was very well received.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to be able to use my teaching skills from McGill once again. I had forgotten how much I enjoy preparing lesson plans and now I will get to do this for the entire Fitness Instructor Specialist course. This is an exciting challenge that will force me to be creative and engaging to a different type of student.
I will ask one more favor of you though. In the coming days and weeks I will be sharing my course information all over my social media sites. Please share it with your friends and family because you never know who might be interested in learning how to teach fitness. I am responsible for finding my students. So I need to spread the word and what better way to do this than through my amazing students who know me so well.
And keep in mind that you are never too old to think about becoming a fitness leader, especially if you are passionate about fitness. The industry needs new leaders with energy and enthusiasm.
Have a great day.
