September 30, 2020
Fitness Instructor Offers New Fitness Solution to Help Fitness Industry Impacted by COVID-19
(Park City, Utah) – Retreat facilitator and author Melanie Webb announces the release of her new fitness education course Mother Nature’s Gym Outdoor Fitness Retreat Guide Certification and supporting Jump-start Workshop. The course will be kicked-off with a live jump-start workshop in Park City, Utah. The course combines functional exercises with guided outdoor recreational and mindfulness activities, applied in a natural setting where nature can play its role in supporting health and wellbeing. The remote learning course is available online, and the Park City Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center (PC MARC) is set to host the first in-person workshop on Saturday, October 24, 2020, from 9am – 1pm.
The timely new fitness solution was created for Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors, Health and Mind-Body Coaches who have a passion for the outdoor lifestyle. The release coincides with a fitness industry hit hard by the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Estimates reported by the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) indicated that the fitness industry had lost $5.6 billion dollars between mid-March and June 1 of this year and would continue to lose $350 million per week through the end of 2020.
“Fitness professionals across all disciplines are uniquely positioned to play a key role in maintaining and restoring the health of their communities with outdoor exercise, but first they need to be equipped with the right skills.” says author Melanie Webb. “Mother Nature’s Gym provides everything a fitness instructor or organization needs to educate their staff to safely lead clients and members on outdoor fitness retreats in their own neighborhoods.”
Fitness professionals who successfully complete Webb’s course will be eligible to receive 1.3 Continuing Education Credits (CEC’s) from the American Council on Exercise (ACE).
The in-person jump-start workshop combines course materials and classroom instruction with first-hand outdoor fitness retreat experience, giving attendees the opportunity to practice essential outdoor fitness guiding skills before applying the method with guests and clients this fall.
