Part 1: Silver Certification

Part 2: Gold Certification

———-initial certification———-

Part 3: After initial certification, you will be required to maintain your certification with ongoing continuing education. This is industry standard and required of fitness certifications globally.

Note: Your first re-certification deadline is 2 years from your Silver Start up date. This will be your Gold-Recertification deadline. Re-certify every 2 years by doing Continuing Education in the “Trainer Area.”

What to expect from the WholyFit Certification program:

You will initially be professionally equipped as a group exercise instructor and personal trainer.

After initial certification, it is our emphasis to encourage you to offer Gentle Body Power group exercise classes in your church. Our support emphasis is ministry, but you are free, of course, to offer your services in any capacity you choose, for ministry or business or both.   Train others physically, emotionally and spiritually. Help people build strength and flexibility with the Gentle Body POWER system and teach them Biblical stress management too. After you register, we will walk you through the certification step by step at your convenience. During WholyFit Certification you will get an in-depth knowledge about fitness principles, exercise technique, form and safety. You will learn how to be an effective leader and get encouragement to live a Biblical lifestyle. You will download everything you need including teacher’s manuals, photos, videos, your texts and anatomy programs, etc… You will not get a better certification anywhere, and you will be blessed throughout the process as you learn about mind-body health, wellness and fitness from a Biblically Christian perspective that takes into account the WHOLE YOU: body, soul and spirit.

What does Gold Certification include?

Gold Certification is completed in person with the WholyFit staff and includes hands-on intensive training. We will help you in a hands-on fashion, to properly execute WholyFit exercises and get an introduction to Layer 2 & 3 exercises with proper technique, form & safety. In addition to Silver online training, actual hands-on practice cueing and demonstrating to real people (“practicum and teaching methodology”) is essential to complete your initial training. Therefore Gold training is required training to be taken within a two year period or the instructor is no longer certified and is no longer authorized to teach WholyFit classes. If Gold Training is not completed within two years of Silver Certification, a Silver Refresher must be taken to restart the process in addition to the Gold Training. Go for the Gold! It is a wonderful experience and you will enjoy practicing with the WholyFit team and meeting other WholyFit Instructors from around the world.

Your Gold certification will continue to be active for two years from your Silver Start up date. By your Silver “anniversary date,” you are required to complete your Gold Re-certification training.

You will take continuing education every 2 years to grow in your practice and receive the advanced certification levels like, “Platinum, Plutonium, etc…” Optionally, you also have the opportunity to learn new WholyFit Fusion Classes online.
