I have worked with teams, groups and individuals for several years in the role of educator, trainer, and instructor. With large or small groups, I have the ability to bring people together to develop:
These skills are not only needed to accomplish physical tasks, but are used daily in work, school, and team settings. I can meet with your organization, group, team, or business to customize and define objectives for team-building events. We can work together to ensure that the physical aspects of yoga, Standup Paddleboarding, or other fitness modality parallel work situations that require collaboration and relationships to move initiatives forward. No prior experience with yoga or standup paddleboarding (SUP) is required. The physical expectations and group goals can be customized for the group attending.

Instructor Training Course - UPDATE We are half-way through our first-ever Maria Finnegan Fitness Instructor Training Program! (MFFITP)
Drawing on over 16 years of experience in the fitness profession, I offer workshops and training for current and aspiring fitness trainers. I help instructors elevate their teaching through word choice, actions, and behaviors that are proven to be effective, beneficial and impactful on the individual client and in the group setting.
Many certifications are offered these days but few provide practical training and assistance AFTER we pass the written exam. For aspiring instructors, I provide training and mentorship that will prepare you not only for a certification exam but also for actual in-person teaching. Through my one-time and multi-session workshops, I assist the novice instructor in learning what to do when we turn that microphone on and face our class for the first time. For the experienced instructor, I assist with fine-tuning existing skills to turn your teaching from "decent" to "AMAZING!" Topics included in my trainings:
Opening and closing a class
Word choice and cueing
Exercise selection and safety
