FitnessFest Stories: Erin
I was the biggest group fitness junkie. I was at all the classes, knew the entire schedule at the gym, and could never get enough. When my favorite instructor encouraged me to get certified to teach R.I.P.P.E.D., I was so incredibly pumped to be entering the fitness professional industry. I was getting paid to do my dream job! I wanted more, though. I went through certification for group fitness and aqua with AFAA, and the CEU requirement freaked me out. I wasn't interested in any of the certification workshops around me, and the cost to take them all individually seemed impossible. I'm a fitness instructor, get real. I do this because I love it, not because it's making me rich! My gym's group fitness director gave me a brochure for FitnessFest, and I couldn't believe what it offered for both land AND aqua classes. The best part -- totally affordable for me. Not only is FitnessFest the only way I earn CEUs, but every time I go I realize how much I have to learn. The instructors, the workshops, the lessons, and the workouts are all so incredibly educational. I walk away with a year's worth of new material for my classes and crazy anticipation for next year's fitness party! I can't thank Janice Jaicks and her crew enough for holding live conferences for fitness professionals. If you want to learn more or if you just want to get started, FitnessFest is a MUST for every single fit pro out there!
