Excellent customer service; from Sarah, to Jaimee, to Kristine, the team members have been supportive, friendly, consistent and professional in every step of my journey with Fitness Institute.
Consider that I had a terrible urgency in getting my GEL qualification, and I admit - I bothered them MANY times.
Did they react nervously or lose their patience? No!
They've been amazing all the time, super-patient, super-helpful.
I have experience in teaching customer service, and let me tell you: EXCELLENT JOB!
(this was the first time I heard about them, it's not a fake review! 😉 )
can i run freestyle classes?
No, the GEL skillset will only qualify you for pre-choreographed group fitness classes.
If you want to run freestyle classes, you will need to complete at minimum the Certificate III in Fitness.
If you do want to design your own fitness classes and obtain a greater knowledge of anatomy, physiology, group instruction and exercise prescription in the near future, you should consider the Certificate III & IV in Fitness which is a pathway to becoming a qualified Gym Supervisor and Personal Trainer.
