PHASE II

We’ve developed the secret sauce in balancing “pre-programmed workouts” with “freestyle teaching”. Our Methodology (suggested 6-8 months after Phase I training) ensures program longevity, and student retention. This 2-day workshop guides you to create individually unique willPower experiences based in smart progressions and regressions. You will gain skills that you can apply to all disciplines of exercise – a toolbox to last a lifetime.

  • Technical Cleanup
  • Foot Fitness Skills, Drill Application
  • Sensory Integration Techniques
  • Seasonal Challenges
  • Guided willPower Philosophy

Attendees also receive a manual, a Certificate of Attendance, .8 NASM, .8 ACE, 8.0 AFAA CEUs and upgraded wIN access. The educational process of internship and evaluation is the same as Phase I.  Pre-registration is required for all workshops. Licensed Phase II instructors are given access to our advanced online willPower Method® courses: willPower IGNITE® and willPower Barre-Fusion®.

willpower Interns have use of the willPower & grace® choreography and program trademark for your 90-day internship period. A video evaluation is required after practice-teaching approximately 15 willPower classes to friends, family and other volunteers.  With a minimum passing score of 70%, you’ll receive your Certificate of Completion, become Licensed Instructor, and you’ll be able to teach at any facility you’d like! You can use the licensed classes, marketing material… you can even order willPower branded business cards!
Our evaluation process is comprehensive; you’ll be evaluated in over 50 areas. You’ll  receive a full written evaluation and then engage in a constructive one-on-one Skype consultation with a willPower Development Coach.  This valuable evaluation feedback will make you a better instructor in many other modalities. This constructive experience is your self-investment into your development as a fitness professional.

 

I have become a much more positive and focused instructor, paying closer attention to positive vocal coaching and my music choices. This has affected all the different classes I teach, most notably group cycling.” – Tracy M., Providence, RI

“As a teacher going through the evaluation process:  it was spot-on feedback, done in a professional, kind, and positive manner. The willPower Method® provided me with a valuable tool in becoming a better student and as a result, a better teacher.” – Shila L., Flagstaff AZ
