Demand for talented, versatile group fitness instructors has exploded, making this the perfect time to get started on your professional journey.
If you are planning to start a career in the fitness industry, then this article is for you.
We recently spoke to BFY’s Student Diwali Patel, and she agreed to share her experience at BFY, with us.
Diwali is a fitness enthusiast. She loves aerobics and she has been learning it for 2 years now. She joined the fitness industry to get in shape and she used aerobics to do that, but soon her interest in coaching, peaked and she decides to become a group fitness instructor. With an aim to start a career as a GFI, she got enrolled for BFY’s Group Fitness Instructor Program.
She said that she picked BFY because when she was looking for an institute to get certified, an instructor friend of hers, recommended BFY to her which offers a GFI Program.
Diwali learned about, all the aspects of aerobics and how to train clients as a GFI from the program, at BFY.
She had only good things to say about the program and BFY’s Faculty.
“The program definitely helped me a lot. I really liked the level of teaching at BFY. I learned many positive points from the faculty. The Faculty at BFY is quite experienced and knowledgeable. They help us at every stage of the program.” Says Diwali.
“I now find myself much better and confident in the field of group fitness. I feel like, I have the confidence to open an aerobics class, run by me because, I am now qualified for it.” She adds.
Diwali plans to keep learning more about group fitness and plans to gain more experience in this field. She wants to open an aerobics class in Thane. She is currently learning more about aerobics from a friend who is into this field from over 5 years.
She urges the newcomers to join the fitness industry. She says, “I think everyone who wants to take up fitness as career, should make sure, they themselves are fit first. Also, try to have a clear idea about what you want to focus on, because, the fitness industry is rather dynamic and finding your niche is key, to survive in the long run”
“Once you are fit and certified, I think one must focus on their communication skills to get through to their clients well. These qualities will definitely help you go a long way in the fitness industry, according to me.” She adds.
That said, we are very glad to be a part of the process that helps passionate and determined students like Diwali achieve their dreams and fitness goals. We wish her all the best for her future endeavours.
