The Aboriginal Sport, Recreation and Physical Activity Partners Council (Partners Council) is pleased to announce the application launch for the 2014/15 FitNation Leader Training. Entering into its second year, FitNation has developed a strong following and this year’s leader training has been highly anticipated.
FitNation incorporates a series of dynamic stretching exercises that are fun, adaptable to any fitness level, and presented in an easy-to-use workout format specifically designed to increase physical activity in Aboriginal communities and Friendship Centres across BC. FitNation is for all ages, scalable to any size group, and requires no specialized facilities or equipment.
1. Are you a certified Fitness Instructor?
2. Do you have experience as a personal trainer or coach, or have a background in delivering physical activity or recreation programs in a First Nation, Friendship Centre, or Métis Chartered Community?
If so, you may be interested in this unique opportunity.
The Partners Council will be selecting 12 volunteer Aboriginal fitness and physical activity leaders to be trained in the FitNation program. Under the guidance of Dwayne Roberts, a certified Nike Sparq Instructor, participants will undertake an intensive two-day training process. After the training is completed, the 12 FitNation leaders become eligible to apply for a $1,000 grant to plan and deliver their own 8 week FitNation program (2-3 FitNation classes per week) in their community/Friendship Centre.
Training will take place in Richmond December 2-3, 2014 at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport. Those selected to attend will have all travel costs covered by the Partners Council.
