There are many ways to earn AFAA credit. As a certified group exercise trainer you must earn AFAA credit annually to stay certified to teach. I personally would rather have to earn AFFA credit than go through the group exercise training again. To earn AFAA credit, you must simply find credible workouts that are approved providers. Yes, my friends it’s that easy! Here’s one trick to earn AFAA credit effectively: Pick something you like! The worst thing you could do when trying to earn AFAA credit is to be trained in a skill that doesn’t mesh with what you already teach.
Most trainers dread the two-year mark when they realize they still need to earn AFAA credit; credits must be submitted every two years.
Here are a few ways that you can earn AFFA credit: Take a live AFAA workshop or an online program. Take an AFAA approved workshop like the IDEA Fitness Conference or PlyoJam. You probably don’t know that Health/Medical/Fitness college courses are automatically accepted for AFAA CEUs. There is even state approved programs such as Nursing, Physical Therapy, Athletic Trainer, Massage Therapy, Occupational Therapy, all of which are automatically accepted for AFAA CEUs.
If you are someone who is reading this blog entry, chances are, you are looking to earn AFAA credit. Well, you’re in luck! I happen to be the creator of a fitness concept called PlyoJam that offers AFAA Credit. PlyoJam is a hot, edgy dance fitness format that provides the intensity level comparable to that of P90X or the Insanity workout, but remains the fun, sexy dance party that so many crave. PlyoJam is not your average, follow along dance class like a Zumba or Hip Hop Cardio class. The intensity comes from Plyometric-inspired movements, a form of jump training, that are weaved throughout the routines to maximize calories burned. Additionally, PlyoJam routines are set to the hottest new music, which inspires and excites students and sets classes on fire. No other dance fitness program comes close to delivering the thrill and heart pumping experience of a PlyoJam class. Here comes the best part, by signing up and doing our online program, you can earn AFAA credit!!! 5 CEUs to be exact!!!

So as you can see, there are many ways to earn AFAA credit. I of course am writing this blog to better guide you in making these choices and shamelessly plugging my own product. Find a workshop that is affordable. The money adds up when trying to earn AFAA credit, so choose wisely. The cheapest and most affordable way, aside from PlyoJam’s online program of course, is an at home study course which requires a bit of reading. You can usually find these Home Study courses offered through the AFAA magazine and on their website. Lastly, remember it’s not difficult to earn AFAA credit you just need to put a little bit of research into getting the most bang for your buck.
