Online Certification to Live Course ValidationAug 20, 2019
In January of 2018 I decided to make a change in my life and dive back into fitness. As a lifelong athlete, I knew what I had to do. I walked into a local gym and gave it my all. I enrolled in the boxing program and fell in love with all it. The fundamentals, the mental and the physical part of boxing made me come alive.
I saw so many people that had so much potential. I also saw so many people that just needed a little push to get going because life had gotten in the way. That is something that I could relate too. That is when I knew this was something I wanted to do. I have always been involved in coaching and I felt like this was my time to really help other people. I obtained my personal training certification and was given an opportunity to help build and grow a boxing program at Freestyle Fitness in Guilderland, NY.
In March of 2019 after much research with certification programs, I enrolled in the Online Level 1 certification. Many of the live locations were located in places I could not attend. That being said the online course did not disappoint. I was able to communicate freely and openly with Tony and Glenn. Being that you submit videos for grading and you receive video feedback in return from the instructors really made all the difference. It showed how much they cared about your form, your delivery and just getting to know you as a student. The quizzes at the end of each segment were very helpful and really helped you to understand the important parts of each section. The ability to take the course at your own pace is also very helpful if you work a full time job like I do. The availability of material on your trainer dashboard is instant and so vital to have as an instructor for your classes.
In August of 2019 I was able to attend the live course for Level 2 Certification in Southampton! The entire day for part 2 was incredible. I walked in knowing how to hold mitts but what I left with was an understanding as to WHY mitt work is done the way it is and how important it is to understand the mitts for you and your client. I watched Tony and Glenn assist and speak to every single person in the room. It was awesome. The marketing and social media portion of the class really opened my eyes. There are things Tony and Glenn spoke about that had never even crossed my mind. I took so much home from this course and am looking forward to implementing this into our program at Freestyle Fitness to stand out from the rest.
There are programs out there that exist to simply get you credits you need. This course goes above and beyond that criteria. The energy and education provided by the instructors for the online course and the live course is what makes this program a cut above the rest. I left with a better understanding of fundamentals to implement into my class, an edge in social media and a wonderful professional network.
Tony, Glenn and the entire Box N Burn crew, Thank you for all that you have done for myself and the future programming at Freestyle Fitness. You all are a class act and best wishes always!
