Health and Fitness Workshops

The YMCA of Newfoundland and Labrador offers a multitude of Health & Fitness workshops in order to help facilitate up-to-date certifications for all our fitness instructor volunteers and staff.

Recertification and keeping up-to-date

In order to maintain their YMCA Canada Group Fitness or Personal Trainer certification, instructors of the Y are required to participate in workshops, for a minimum total of 16 hours, over a two-year period. Refer to YMCA Canada Fitness Leadership brochure on our webpage under Volunteer or YMCA Courses for full recertification requirements. Instructors with outside certification must also maintain their certification by attending continuing education workshops if volunteering or employed by our Y.

YMCA Volunteer / YMCA Instructor Workshops

For current YMCA volunteers and instructors there will be 2 workshops for the 2016-2017 year. Each workshop will cover three different topics which can be used towards you continuing education credits. The topics will be based on different class types, nutrition and personal training.
