I am a “mentor” trainer for the Exercise Safety Association.  ​This is a very unique program offered exclusively by ESA whereby I can facilitate individuals in one-on-one training to become Certified GF Instructors!

ESA Info: ESA is a NATIONAL Group Fitness Certification Organization established in 1978 and headquartered in Orlando, FL.  ESA publishes newsletters with current exercise information throughout the year, conducts educational research, and establishes safety guidelines and standards for exercise.  ESA has a STAR America program for members that obtain 3 or more Specialty Certifications.  Phone:  407-246-5090    Address:  PO Box 547916 Orlando, FL 32854, www.exercisesafety.com

Why ESA??

ESA's goal is to make it EASY and AFFORDABLE for individuals to become instructors and spread the educational training on health and fitness!  In this ESA “mentor” program you will receive the study materials and be doing the program in a self-study fashion with me as your personal trainer to answer questions and help with the practical application of the training.  With ESA you NEVER lose your extra continuing education credits.  They can be “saved” for your next renewal or can be put toward a “multi-year” certification renewal.  Also, once you have your primary certification, ESA offers SPECIALITY certifications such as:
Kickbox, Pilates, Yoga, Aqua, Step, Personal Training, Lateral Slide and Nutrition One of the most important aspects of ESA to me is the high importance they place on safety!  All their training emphasizes the proper and safest way to teach the exercises! Lastly, I have found that they are a very accessible and nice group of people!
