How Do I Become a Vixen Instructor?

Are There Prerequisites?

Any Woman 18 years or older may attend a Vixen Instructor Training. There are no prerequisites for taking the Vixen Instructor Training. However, it helps if you’ve already taken a Vixen class before or if you have previous experience in dance or teaching group exercise classes.

It’s okay! You just need to make sure you study your home

What Is Vixen Phase 1

The Vixen Workout Phase 1 Instructor Training prepares you with the foundation and content you need to teach a Vixen Workout. With a Phase 1 certification, you may teach a P1 Vixen Workout and a Vixen 101. After completing your home-study guide, you should have knowledge of our brand, fitness philosophy, the science behind Vixen, mission, technique, basic moves, and 4 routines. During training, you will learn the additional routines that are taught in our Phase 1 classes, along with movement styling, teaching methods, dialogues, and tools on how to emulate the choreography provided.

Does Everyone Receive a Vixen Instructor Certification after Completing the Training?

No, not everyone who attends will receive a certification to teach. It is important for us to have the same Vixen experience everywhere it is taught. We will need to see that you can execute Vixen workout moves clearly and represent the brand effectively in your city. Don’t worry, you have 3 whole weeks to practice your Vixen combinations prior to attending training and we will be reviewing them during the training day. Remember, our best instructors were our clients, not dancers. If you have no experience, you’ll just have to spend more time preparing prior to your training and more time practicing before you begin teaching.

I Registered for Training, Now What?

After submitting your registration, you will receive an email confirming that the registration is complete. Expect a second email about 3 weeks before the Instructor Training to gain access to your study guide and Vixen combinations that you need to come prepared with.
