All of our instructors began as dedicated clients of the studio, and they remain students even after they start teaching!  After taking classes and developing a passion for the method(s), our instructors auditioned and applied for apprenticeships at Novo Fitness. Instructors then attended and completed their certification(s) in their specific method(s) and began an extensive and rigorous apprenticeship consisting of observing, training, workshopping, and co-teaching in the classroom under observation and direction of senior teachers. Even after completing the certification and apprenticeship process, instructors continue to receive education and further training, and are continuously observed by the owners.  

Our instructors are also students, and use their perspectives as both teacher and student to lead clients in challenging workouts while giving attention to individual clients.

All instructors are trained in proper modifications and/or advanced options to accommodate clients of all fitness levels, including those with injuries and pre/post natal needs.

Senior instructors have assisted in training(s) and workshop(s), are certified to teach 7+ class types, teach 5+ classes per week, and have taught a minimum of 500 classes.
