Communication and connection
No matter what kind of instructor you are, we can all agree that teaching an exercise class is a lot like having a conversation. You have to be able to read the room and adapt to a variety of situations, so you can make sure that everyone is feeling challenged, engaged and safe while they exercise. In this module we'll help you identify some key verbal and non-verbal cues that will let your participants know exactly what you want them to do.
How to connect with participants so that they feel welcomed and comfortable with you and the workout that they are about to partake in.
How to provide non-verbal cues used for orientation, clarification, direction, feedback and adjustments.
How to use verbal cues to help your group move more safely.
