Fluidride Instructor Training (FIT) - Level 1 – April 14 & 15
Whether you are aiming to teach for a living, help your friends, or wanting to transform your own riding – our FIT Level 1 Certification will get you started with powerful tools for evaluating and improving rider form.
Teaching people in groups or in private sessions is all about individual connection. Instructors in training will learn how to see each rider as an individual, and to learn to connect with positivity with each rider within their group. Instructors in training will also learn to use video analysis as a powerful tool for teaching and rapidly improving their riding, and that of others.
This is our best instructional value with 16 hours of class.

Fluidride Instructor Training (FIT) - Level 2 – April 16
For those of you who have already taken or signed up for FIT Level 1 training, FIT Level 2 is the next step. Learn the ins and outs of advanced riding practices and how to keep riders engaged as they progress. Not only will you vastly improve your own riding – you will also have more to offer your students when teaching. Most of the FIT 2 class revolves around teaching jumping and other air skills, as well as combining what you learned in FIT 1 with what you learn in FIT 2. I call this 'layering' techniques. We'll learn to create layered skills drills. It's important to note that this is about teaching. You don't need to be an advanced jumper to learn to understand how it all works and to be able to explain it. Some riders will ride more of the terrain than others, but we'll all learn!
Techniques Being Taught:
- Featuring to turns and featuring to a landing
- Drops to turns
- Advanced techniques for drops – 'squashing' or 'racer style'
- Jumping - basics to gaps (You DON'T have to be able to ride everything to learn how to teach it).
NOTE: FIT Level 1 is a prerequisite for this class
