"Instructors are the most important part of any group exercise program. They give life to the program, help develop the skills required to use equipment correctly and help to create the culture in a fitness club. Quality instructor training is, therefore, vital to the success of any group fitness class and overall program. This is an area that I am passionate about and it has been the driving force in my presenting and lecturing career. 'Train instructors well and they will look after your customers' is my motto for program coordinating"
Having taught group exercise classes as a full time career, Marietta understands what it takes to make classes fun, effective and inspiring. Attention to detail is her strength and she applies her knowledge in her workouts to assist and educate participants in how to get the most out of every session.
“I love having different abilities and skill levels in my classes. It challenges me as an instructor to provide a workout that is achievable and FUN! Everyone works out at different levels and have different reasons for coming along to the gym. My wish is to guide and instruct a group of people through a class that will hopefully achieve their individual goals."
"Group fitness is such a great career, because there is so much diversity - teaching classes which vary from club to club, different music, different abilities and then there is the lecturing, examining, presenting courses and workshops, and let's not forget the traveling to conventions and networking with amazing people whose own experiences vastly differ to mine. The only other thing that I have a passion for that is not group fitness is food - I love to eat (and when you have a job that pays you to burn calories - why not!)"
