Jump Start Gold – A New Zumba Training Course!

Jump Start Gold, Zumba Fitness

Jump Start GoldTM… a new training designed for instructors-to-be —

Jump Start Gold is an entry-level training course that combines the Zumba Gold Training with the foundation and formula of a Zumba Basic steps level 1 Training. It addresses the anatomical, physiological and psychological needs crucial to teaching the active, older adult population. It is designed for instructors-to-be who are passionate about teaching Zumba Gold classes (versus basic Zumba classes) and want to “jump start” their Zumba Gold career. This addition to the Instructor Training lineup allows instructors-to-be to become licensed in Zumba® Basic and Zumba Gold® in one extended 10-hour Instructor Training Course.

So, if you have a friend who wants to teach Zumba Gold classes, encourage them to get a “jump start” by attending a Jump Start Gold Instructor Training Course. It is important to note that in order to obtain a license to teach Zumba Gold, attendees must join ZIN* (as of September 1, 2010, Zumba Gold is considered a Specialty Program, which means that the license to teach it is exclusive to ZIN Members). Jump Start Gold Trainings will start popping up soon for 2011.
