$139 for an Eight-Hour Barre Certification Course ($325 Value)
During the single-day BarreVite certification course, budding group-fitness instructors learn how to target different muscle groups with a keen eye on form. They also master how to modify techniques for their students, the proper use of the ballet barre for support, and how to incorporate spinning bikes, bands, weights, and weighted balls into barre workouts. Course participants walk away with a certificate of completion for ACE or AFAA continuing-education units. To complete their certification to become BarreVite instructors, participants must submit a video or perform a live demonstration of the course material with an already certified instructor. See the class schedule here.
BarreVite students may rely upon the ballet barre for support, but that doesn’t mean the workout caters to the meek. Its powerful blend of cardio, strength, balance, and flexibility intensifies ballet exercises and dance to fortify different muscle groups. Continuing education specialist and BarreVite creator Janet Tissot Parks and her protégés also share their expertise with aspiring BarreVite instructors during intensive certification courses.
