About ElitePole’s instructor course

We have been educating pole fitness instructors since 2012, and we are the most experienced pole fitness instructor education in Denmark. This course 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 course is working in depth, is intense and developing.

ElitePole’s instructor course is based on a series of modules, which each is based on an intense teaching weekend. On top of this there will be self practice with homework and a written and a practical exam. Each module consists of theory, practical practice, individual tasks or exams.  This is a basic instructor course, where you will acquire all the knowledge and skills it takes to be a class instructor in general, and you will learn all the basic and necessary teaching techniques it takes to become a pole fitness instructor for beginners. We will create the foundation you need to be a competent and professional instructor. Please note that the course is not about your own training, but about learning how to teach others and communication is the focus.

Everyone who is strong in beginner moves and techniques can attend the course. No former teaching experience is necessary to attend. Parts of the course will be in English, and you will get the possibility to learn to teach in both Danish and English, if you wish this yourself. There is no requirement to your english / danish level (but you must be able to understand and speak one of the two languages fully)

Parts of the course are online, but the primary form of teaching demands physical attendance. However, in case you live far away and don’t have the option to attend physically it is possible to join the full course by online attendance only. This must be agreed in advance when you sign up to the course. Please contact us to hear more.

Private classes are not included the total price for the course but must be paid separately if necessary. If there are more people who have missed the same part of the course, you can share the private classes with no extra costs.
  • If you are not passing the exam, you can schedule to do the exam again with an instructor. Every time you are taking the exam again you will be charged for 1 private class pr. exam.

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.
