BYU-Idaho held its wellness instructor tryouts in the John W. Hart Building April 23 through April 31.
According to BYU-I’s website, the tryouts are for the people who are going to be instructors for the wellness classes that began May 5.
Fitness classes will be held in various rooms located in the Hart building, according to BYU-I’s website.
The schedule was completed around May 3 and was posted online to the master calendar onthe website.
The calendar is also now posted on the doors of the classrooms in the Hart Building.
“The goals for the instructors are to provide opportunities for them to share their talents with others,” said Lisa Robison, a Wellness Activities and Competitive Sports advisor this semester.
Chelsea Centinaro, a sophomore studying early childhood special education, said instructors have to be students and have to go through a process of auditions with a fitness routine they came with.
“This is something I knew how to do, and I like to share it with people,” Centinaro said. “I was able to make friends [this] way.”
Robison said the purpose of wellness activities is to invite and to motivate a healthy lifestyle.
“They provide wholesome activities to help create healthy habits for life,” Robison said.
Classes are offered every week at various times and include activities such as water aerobics, yoga for beginners, Abs That Rock, Zumba, cycling, cardio jam, hip hop, kick boxing and Variety class.
