So after much investigation it is definitely much harder to be an instructor in Aus than in America..and that is not coming from me as much as it is the top guy in the Fitness Networking Industry here in OZ, they do NOT accept American Certs here as they are not as detailed as they are here.
So I have signed up for an online Group Fitness Instructor course..my final assessment will be done on 2 areas on video that I have to send in. I would rather take a course in person but this is a "little" cheaper and it is through the network that you MUST be registered with to teach in the whole country so I assume then it is worth it. Once I have this though my Les Mills Certs will transfer and I am basically able to teach anything..even outdoor small group classes..then I can take the next step and do personal training if I decide too.
Since I did my initial AFAA cert in 1994, this is going to be almost like starting over :)
I am "starting over" in another area as well...The Supreme 90 workout..ok not starting it over from the beginning but I did start the 2nd segment (or the 2nd month) over again on Tuesday. Last month was just haywire from the weekend of our Wedding celebration forward and my eating and exercise were way out of whack. Also I was having lots of pains in my legs and wrists after our long drive into Melbourne that have just now gone away, I could not run without being in pain..this morning I did a 5k without too much pain..I am thinking that my arthritis was acting up with the change of weather, the long drive and the fact that I had not been practicing my yoga...I really think it makes a HUGE difference, or should say I KNOW it does! I try to practice yoga at least 20 minutes a day if I can..some days longer!
So anyway...hope you all have set your goals for April and are being successful this far!
Have a great day/night!
