As a commitment to training, potential instructors can take 30 days of unlimited classes for $99
Take as many classes as possible to learn the method. We encourage you to try each instructor as each instructor style is very different
The X-CORE Instructor Training is the most thorough training of its kind and includes the following:
Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics
Essential XFormer® exercises including variations, modifications and proper form
Contraindications and special considerations (how to deal with injuries, muscular imbalances, pregnancy, etc)
Teaching presence and microphone technique
Access to the studio for individual practice and mock classes
Personal coaching and support from X-CORE staff throughout the duration of the training
Must be able to attend training dates (3 days, about 6 hours a day) AND take a minimum of 3 X-CORE classes/week
Following training, we cannot emphasize this enough, but practice practice practice will be THE BEST way to become a great instructor. Taking as MANY classes throughout the process as a trainee will benefit you so much as you find your voice and build upon your style.
Before moving onto the schedule, we want everyone;
To be able to create & teach a fun, interactive, inspiring and effective class.
Want to make sure everyone understands alignment, clear cueing, proper hands on corrections, and how to modify your classes for people with injuries and/or limitations.
Pre/post natal knowledge necessary to nurture confident and strong mommies.
Open Studio Hours
For your 1st open studio hour, please let Cora & Elaine know when you’ll be coming in so we can coordinate. We will give you a code to a lockbox at the studio that has the front door key, walk you through how to work the sound system and show you how machines should be set up before leaving. This will also be the time to walk us through your mock routine you plan on teaching your friends/family for your studio ready demo.
During non-scheduled class times, please come in to practice routines on friends/family to get you prepared to teach a 40 min class. Cora and Elaine are always available to sit in on mock classes to give feedback and help work through any roadblocks.
If you don’t have a group fitness background, it is highly recommended you practice a minimum of 6+ times before moving onto a studio ready demo
Remember practice makes perfect and you will be so much more confident and successful when teaching your studio ready demo
Studio Ready Demo (for Elaine/Cora)
Full 40-min routine you will teach friends
Everything must be prepared as if you were to put on a regular class (routine written down, timing on cue, music prepared and know how to work the sound system)
You will be put on the schedule to teach community classes for a maximum of 10 clients (remember some people may have never taken a Lagree class before and this will be a great time to put everything we’ve practiced into real life scenarios)
During every community class, we will evaluate your growth and give you feedback
Minimum of 3 community classes before moving on to the schedule.
If you need more than 10+ community classes, we will re-evaluate and determine next steps
Based on feedback from Community Classes and Cora/Elaine, if we feel you are ready, then you will officially be added to the schedule and be part of Team-X!!! Congrats :)
**Because we are all at different stages of our group fitness background, should you feel you’re ready to progress to the next steps quicker than others, please speak with Elaine and Cora individually. We’ll get you moving on to the next steps.
