About ElitePole’s instructor education

We have been educating pole fitness instructors since 2012, and we are the most experienced pole fitness instructor education in Denmark. Our instructor training program includes everything a competent pole instructor needs to learn. The participants often do not only experience to progress into future pole fitness instructors, but also experience to grow on a personal and professional level. The education is working in depth, is intense and developing.

ElitePole’s instructor training program is built around a series of modules that consist of teaching practice, theory, self-study with homework tasks and a final practical and written exam. Each module either consists of theoretical teaching, practical learning, individual assignments or exams. The education is a fundamental instructor training where you will acquire all the basic knowledge and skills within teaching fitness classes in general, as well as learning specific teaching techniques within pole fitness for beginners. Specifically, you will learn exactly how to teach pole fitness beginner classes, and we built the needed foundation to be a competent and professional instructor. Note that the course is not about your own training, but about learning to be able to teach others, where dissemination and communication are the focus.

Everyone who is strong in pole beginner moves and techniques can apply to attend the education. No former teaching experience is necessary to attend. The education will might be in English accordingly after  if there are English speaking participants.

The teaching requires physical attendance and will take place at ElitePole in Vanløse. If you live far away and do not have the opportunity to participate physically, there is also the option of online participation in the entire education. This must be agreed in advance. Contact us to hear more.

Former participants

I can definitely highly recommend ElitePole’s instructor education. As a student you will be guided through a well structured program by competent and sympathetic teachers, where there is both room for challenges, development and socialising. Overall an excellent experience that I definitely can recommend ” – Nynne T.

An intensive and learningfull education, which prepares you well as a future instructor. You learn specific exercises, and how you carefully teach them. You will be teached in anatomy, which gives you a great understanding of how the body works, and you will progress in explaining exercises and prevent injuries. The teachers are competent, and I was in very safe hands ” – Louise J.

I did not only learn to teach and become an instructor, but I actually also learnt new things about myself during the course. The feedback we got from the teachers was very constructive and useful, and my boundaries moved in a positive way, which led to that I now feel ready to have the full responsibility for a class and teach others ” – Nanna H.
