I have a lot of regard for group fitness teachers (butreally, I have respect for any fitness expert), and I think the enthusiasm andsupport you provide class after class is amazing. Group fitness managers candetermine that an instructor has further training if they see a group fitnessteacher certification on a résumé, particularly when it is listed with a specialistcredential. I believe that social media has done a great job of glamorizing thefitness industry, and it appears like everyone is now an "Instagramfitness model."
