Native Fitness Training

About the Training

The Native Fitness Training is an innovative health promotion program designed to train individuals to become community fitness leaders and instructors. Upon completing this three-day intensive training, participants will be prepared to implement and instruct aerobic exercise classes in their Native communities. Please note: This training does not provide the 'Personal Trainer Certification'.

This is an introductory level training designed for anyone interested in fitness, those who have never had any fitness training, and for those who work in tribal wellness programs. Topics covered during the training include anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, nutrition, exercise and weight management, instructional skills, class development, marketing, injury prevention and safety, special populations, choreography, and legal considerations.
