FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION
The Spin City Intermediate Pole Fitness Instructor Course focuses on developing the basic skills taught at the Beginners Level while adding on the next block of moves in the Spin City syllabus. At this point in your instructor training, we start increasing your knowledge of core concepts such as training lifting, execution and clean movement. This will all be beneficial as we will then progress onto considering the basic invert technique in great depth. We will follow this by covering our 50 core intermediate inverts looking at the teaching points, safety points, progressions regressions and problems of each move. Our practical training with finish by bridging to our advanced course and teaching you how to introduce arms only movements to your students. This is supplemented with an extensive look at effective spotting techniques. From a theory perspective, we will expand on the foundation knowledge developed in your beginner’s course, expanding your instructional toolbox to give you a range of teaching methods that work effectively when students are at height and inverted. We will discuss class planning in the context of progress chains and how you can use combinations and sequences to both challenge your students, avoid them hitting move plateaus and also ensure safe progression to an advanced level. You can expect to leave this course with a wealth of new moves, skills and techniques to reinvigorate your pole fitness classes allowing you to take your students to the next level.
