with FEET-NESS™ Instructor Training Program

The feet are the foundations. Every day we are on our feet standing, walking or running. There is no athletic or functional movement that doesn’t involve our feet. Their health and movement affect our calves, hips, spine and posture with every step we take. But all too often the feet are overlooked.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
How much time will it take to go through the Feet-ness™ Instructor Training Program?
There is not one answer to this question! The length of time taken to complete the program depends entirely on the amount of time you can dedicate each week. It will also vary according to your initial level of knowledge and learning style. That said, with dedicated and committed study you can expect to complete the program in 10 weeks.
How should I approach the study?
The very first time you approach the program make sure you have a few hours available so that you can take your time to skim the manuals, see what you already know and what you will need to learn. Then, begin to review the e-books and the many videos with the exercises and don't forget to start playing with Rescue LOOP®! After this general overview you will be more aware of where you'll need to spend your study time.
How many hours per week should I carve?
I highly recommend, to cover 2 hours of theory and 2-2.5 hours of practice each week. If possible, it would be ideal to spread the practice over multiple days: 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. After you get more familiar with the exercise it's advisable to just add them to your workout routine so that you'll soon be able to execute all the exercises without the video support or having to look into the e-books.
Should I learn all the exercises?
Yes! Some will be more specific for certain pathologies or needs but as a trainer you should "play with" and experiment with them all! One day you will happen to work with a client that needs some specific exercise for Morton's neuroma and if you know about the pathology and the best exercises for it, you will be able to give your clients what he/she needs.
How many times a week minimum should I log into my account?
Minimum once a week. Ideally 5 times a week! As always consistency and repetition are the best ingredients to make something part of who you are as a fitness professional. Dive into it and make it yours - don't hold back!
Do I need to purchase Rescue LOOP®?
No. A Rescue LOOP® will be sent to you once you enroll in the program. After that, if you decide to purchase more for your studio or students you'll be able to access discounted prices and wholesale packages. Contact us for more information.
When will I receive my FEET-NESS™ Instructor Diploma?
After you complete all the tests.
What does the test focus on?
You will have to complete all the Quizzes that you find in the different sections of the program. These are simple questions about the anatomy, the most common pathologies, the movements and how to structure a class. The quizzes will consist of True/False and multiple-choice questions. Everything that is included in the quizzes, is in the manuals, no tricky questions. You will also have to send us an outline for a possible workout class: "My plan for the class". Pick a theme (general, bunion, toe conditions, achy feet, restorative, for athletes, etc), define the audience and the type of class. If you want you can film the class, send us the video and we would love to give you feedback on it (THE OUTLINE IS MANDATORY, THE VIDEO IS NON-MANDATORY, just an opportunity) IMPORTANT: If you do NOT answer the quizzes and/or send us the class outline we won't be able to send you either the diploma or the PMA CEC's (9).
What happens after I test and receive the Diploma?
Congratulations!!! Welcome to our community of FEET-NESS™ Trained Instructors! You won't be left alone, we'll follow up with you and be in touch to make sure you feel strong and ready to go!
Will you help me get started with a FEET-NESS™ Class in my Studio and town?
Sure! In the marketing section of the Program you will find IG and Facebook posts (both images and hashtags) that will help you get started on promoting the class. We'll be delighted to help you promote it within our community and through our social media channels and also list your class with all the details on our website ( www.feet-ness.com/calendar )
