RCCC to offer fitness instructor preparation class

RCCC to offer fitness instructor preparation class

This fall, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College will offer a Fitness Instructor Prep class to provide students with the necessary knowledge to pass the American Council on Exercise (ACE) Group Fitness Instructor Certification Exam.

The course, offered Oct. 26 through Dec. 16 at the North Campus in Salisbury, will cover the various topics needed to pass the exam and train students as effective group fitness instructors.

“During this class, students will learn the essential skills and subjects required to be a group fitness instructor,” said Mary Rosser, who will be leading the course. “These topics include human anatomy, exercise and pregnancy, emergency procedures, as well as the business behind being an instructor.”

Upon successful completion of the class and exam, students will possess the credentials to lead their own group fitness classes.

In recent years, group fitness has increased in popularity and demand with exercise classes such as Zumba, CrossFit and yoga.

“The Fitness Instructor Prep class is an exciting opportunity to provide students with what they will need to not only pass the exam, but to pursue their passion in the healthcare industry,” said Sherie Neely, program manager of training services at RCCC. “This is a unique course — it’s unlike anything offered in the area and we look forward to the positive impact it will have on the community.”

Spots are still open, however, class size is limited. Registration cost is $180.

  • Core Conditioning — Tuesdays, 9 a.m.-10 a.m. and noon-1 p.m., Oct. 20- Dec. 8, North Campus
