Training Course Requirements

• Formal fitness qualifications, or the online Fitness Hoop Foundations Training Course (included in the training package). You do not need a license to teach aerobic-type exercise classes in the U.S.; however, many fitness centers and gyms only hire certified instructors. Certification requires learning about anatomy, body mechanics and teaching methods, as well as CPR and first aid. For the safety of your participants, we do recommend that you look into gaining these credentials before teaching fitness classes. 

 

• Facility with weighted fitness hoops and the ability to use the hoop comfortably, and with proficiency in both directions. To avoid discomfort, we recommend that beginners gradually build up to hooping for several minutes at a time.
