Bloom Fitness Volunteer Instructor- Accessible Fitness for Everyone!
Physical fitness should be accessible to everyone! If you believe in this statement, consider becoming a volunteer Bloom Fitness Instructor at A-B Tech Community College.
Bloom Fitness offers classes to improve the health and wellness of our students with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD).
Classes offer participants an inviting and safe environment to exercise and learn about healthy lifestyle choices. Classes include cycling, dance, yoga, and nutrition and are a fun way to promote health, build self-esteem, and be part of a fitness community. Bloom Fitness’s priorities are Safety, Fun, Community, Encouragement, health, wellness, and fitness.
Volunteer Role: Volunteer instructors for the Bloom Fitness program will be leading 30-minute fitness classes in yoga, strength, Pilates, dance, and indoor cycle. Volunteers need a passion for physical fitness, experience, and enjoyment of working with intellectual and developmentally disabled individuals, and teaching/coaching experience is preferred. In addition, the Coordinator of Adult Basic Education will provide training.
Volunteer Commitment: Volunteers are needed to commit to one class once a week, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to noon. Bloom volunteers need only be present during the exercise portion of the class/classes. The schedule of the exercise sessions is dependent on the number of participants in attendance that day.
