What is Aerius Fitness Training?

Aerius Fitness Training programs are accredited instructor training and continuing education courses for pole and aerial fitness. Upon course completion, participants receive a certificate signifying that they have successfully completed the 16-hour course, and passed the written and practical exam sections of the training. As the industry grows and changes, continuing education is encouraged to stay up to date. Each new learning experience adds credibility, and students will appreciate that you’ve made an effort to improve your teaching, expand your repertoire, study and grow. The more diverse your education, the more marketable you become as an instructor.


How do I obtain my Continuing Education Credits for ACE and AFAA?

The Aerius Fitness Training program is recognized by ACE (American Council of Exercise) and AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) as a qualified, professional fitness certification. In order to receive your CEUs, you must pass both the written and practical exam administered at the end of the training course. Upon successful passing, you will receive a certificate and a form that includes the qualification numbers for ACE and AFAA certified holders to submit to uphold their certifications with ACE and AFAA.


What can I expect in this 2 day training? Will I be tested?

The Aerius Fitness Training program is a comprehensive 16-hour training that covers anatomy, dance, teaching techniques, choreography, progressions/regressions, strength and flexibility conditioning, as well as beginning and intermediate pole/aerial movement. The trainings focus on safety and effective spotting techniques, as well as class management and formatting. The first day of the training will include lecture and practical sessions. Day 2 will be mostly practical and will conclude with a written and practical exam.
