Group Exercise Opportunity - Richmond, VA

I received this message from an Exercise Science alum:

 I am currently in need of several group fitness instructors for the summer months with potential to be on the group fitness schedule through the following fall, winter and spring.  Specifically, I am interested in those able to instruct indoor cycling classes, senior classes and water aerobics.  There will also be opportunities to sub yoga, boot camp, Barre, and strength training classes.  If you know of any students that will be living in the Richmond area over the summer or moving here after graduation, please pass along this information.  Candidates should have a current group fitness instructor certification, as well as current CPR/AED/First Aid certifications.  Interested students can contact me at
Thank you,
