How To Be A Group Fitness Instructor

How do I become an aerobics instructor?

Good question!  Here are the steps to becoming an aerobics instructor:

  1. Contact Lori Cowan 615-34(3-6576) for an information packet. Or download forms to the side.
  2. READ the material and practice. (Attend some aerobics classes, observe the instructors, ask questions concerning the material, teaching, the audition, combinations, how awesome it is to teach at Vandy, etc.)
  3. Develop a routine for your audition.
  4. Once you’re feeling comfortable with the routine, call Lori to set up an audition time.
  5. Pass the Audition! (If you don’t pass the first time, look over the comments on the audition checklist, make adjustments, and schedule another audition time. Re-audition as many times as you need to.)
  6. Congratulations! You’re on the Vanderbilt Group Fitness Team!

Pay Rate

All instructors must be certified. Pay rate is $15.00 per hour (student) and between $22 and $30 per hour (non-student) depending on experience and certifications.
