Teacher Training at the StretchFit Academy
At StretchFit, we take the training of teachers seriously. Our training academy provides substantial anatomy studies along with experiential and supervised teaching practice. Through our teachers portal, we provide ongoing professional development.
Our training academy provides 3 types of teacher training certification.
Full studio training on the StretchFit combination station and StretchFit splitter.
Full studio certification is for franchise owners and has three levels. Each level includes 7 days of training with ongoing mentoring and supervision.
Subjects include "Stretching with special populations, injuries & pathologies," "Stretching and anatomy," "basic and advanced assessment skills," "mind-body techniques & relaxation strategies."
StretchFit “tabletop” practitioner training (including mat/floor alternatives)
Practitioner training is for teachers and trainers who want to work one-on-one with clients and patients.
The hands-on assisted stretching techniques can be used on our specially designed practitioner table or on a massage table or floor.
StretchFit TableTop has 2 levels, one called Tabletop trainer, the second called TableTop therapist. Each certification takes 7 days.
Stretchfit circuit training
SF circuit training is a two-day course (with online exams) with a one-day online update every 2 years. Circuit certification is specifically for trainers and gym owners who purchase our 12 station "StretchFit circuit " program.
