My recently developed 3-credit hour elective course, KIN 422: Advanced Principles of Group Exercise Leadership, will be available again for enrollment in the Fall 2013 semester.
Course description: Theories, principles and procedures involved with leading group fitness classes. Students will gain knowledge and experience in class design and choreography development. Programming for children, older adults, pregnancy and aquatic exercise will be included. Practical and written assessments will occur throughout the semester. Participation in group exercise classes outside of class is a requirement. Students will have the opportunity to enroll in the AFAA Primary Group Exercise Certification hosted in Godwin Hall in December 2013.
