How To Become a group exercise instructor

Are you interested in becoming a GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR? So happy for you! It’s one of the most exciting and satisfying careers you can have.

A good first step is earning a Group Exercise certification. And NCEP is the right certification company to choose. After all, we’ve been the top choice with fitness pros around the world for more than 20 years, with over 5,000 enrollments and counting. Plus, employers agree that NCEP Certified Group Instructors (NCEP CGIs) are better prepared to actively start their fitness career because of the hands-on workshops and testing.

In as few 4 to 6 weeks you could be an Ncep Certified GROUP EXERCISE INSTRUCTOR— setting your own hours and enjoying the job security of working in an industry that’s expected to grow by 10% each year.


The NCEP Group Exercise Certification is a comprehensive, hands on, one day Group Exercise intensive. A longer single day certification makes getting certified more cost and time efficient. Incorporating the Rezist workout enables you to be proficient in an actual class. Past students have found learning a specific class format to bring back to their community is more valuable than simply obtaining a basic certification. Your day will consist of movement, modifications and music. Focus will be on finding your voice and becoming the most inspiring instructor you can be!

This price includes the NCEP Group Exercise Certification Manual, the one day in-person intensive workshop (taught at a local gym) and the certification exam. Students with passing scores will receive a Rezist Certification that day and NCEP Group Ex certification in approximately 2 weeks.  

Make sure you’re eligible.


To be eligible for the Ncep Group Exercise Certification Exam, you must:

  • Be 16 years of age or older
  • Have a high school degree or GED, or in process

No CPR and AED certifications? No problem. You just need to get them at some point before you start personal training clients. Most gyms provide insurance when training inside their facility.
