Key Elements of the B4H Instructor Training Program

  1. The instructor training program is offered over two weeks to allow candidates to familiarize themselves with the specific population (Parkinson’s Disease). The duration of the training may differ between candidates based on experience and qualifications.

  2. Candidates will shadow both high functioning and low functioning classes to observe and understand the differences in symptoms and stages of the disease progression.

  3. Each candidate will have the opportunity to design and teach warm ups as well as teach classes in full.

  4. Learn the basics of proper Boxing Technique for our clientele (one on one direction)

  5. Learn how to complete an assessment of new students

  6. The B4H Instructor Training program is customized to each individual, recognizing that everyone has different backgrounds and qualifications. This is a key element that differentiates the B4H training program from other fitness training programs. Our experience has determined that, by taking this approach, the Instructors are more apt to feel confident and comfortable in teaching their own classes.
