FIS Practical portion for your exam. Some of this is on the Theory as well
What I look for: Introduce yourself give a quick description of the class, what to expect, level, options (ask if anyone has taken the class before – address any questions or concerns. Begin and end on time.
Balance of all major muscle groups from beginning to end.
Warm-up explaining benefits of the warm – up as it applies to the class some things participants need to pay attention to i.e. breathing, heart rate etc. approximately 10 – 12minutes (heart rate)
Four primary Functions of the warm—up
Phases of Warm-up
CARDIO Component – explaining the benefits Approximately 20 – 35 minutes (heart rate)
Primary Function of Cardiovascular training
Phases of Cardio (how these may apply with an interval class if you are teaching a Boot Camp or HITT – give options for all levels if multilevel class & or variations from impact to non-impact, easy to hardest
Muscle conditioning – explain benefits of muscle conditioning give options approximately 5 – 20 minutes
Primary Function of muscle conditioning
Phases of Muscle conditioning
Structure of Muscle conditioning
Varies depending on
Training emphasis (function)
Targeted body parts
Symmetrical with respect to body parts, muscle groups and function
Final Cool down approximately 5 – 10 minutes in length explaining benefits – how everyone will feel, awareness of depth of stretch, how dynamic is different than static, breathing
Primary Function of muscle conditioning
Phases of muscle conditioning
How are you transitioning from: standing to sitting, lying, from one stretch to the next? All major muscle groups.
Ending on Time – Q&A being available after class. If there is another class after where will you meet everyone.
Thank all for coming!
I will also look at how you use the music from beginning to end. Is there a time the music needs to be turned off? What transitions you use to create movement? Complete at lease one song within the 32-count phrasing. Use examples in your book & DVD pick 1 that you can comfortably teach. Starting on the down beat and working in the 4 / 4 x.
Be yourself having fun, get people laughing. If you mess up adlib keep a nice momentum going.
Incorporating encouraging Breathing – Motivate, Communicate & Educate throughout. Show your LOVE!
Very important heart rate checks. Use a variety of ways to ask, get response (Are their heart rates up? What %? What formula are you using or do they know ask? Than quickly teach the formula so they understand and can quickly give you a response - teaching people so they learn what intensity they are working at or should be at parts of the class. Coaching, verbal & Non-verbal cuing.
What and how you are adjusting to make all individual do their best and experience an awesome workout.
Some may have to be pushed to work harder longer some may need to be brought down or given options from impact to no impact. Check posture and alignment, breathing techniques etc. throughout.
What: - teaching formulas you will be using? Linear, linking, pyramids etc. Cueing, coaching techniques etc. The more you use the better. Give water and heart rate check breaks – ask and get response.
