The Halo® Training program is designed for fitness instructors teaching group classes and individual clients. More than just a prop, the Halo Trainer Plus is featured as the basis for a complete training program that allows instructors to manipulate exercise attributes and intensity in individual training plans. Incorporating the basic science behind core-integrated bodyweight training, the unique design of the Halo® Trainer Plus and the use of a Stability Ball™ and additional small props, gives fitness trainers extensive and highly applicable tools.
The Halo Instructor Foundation Course presents the concepts of interval training principles and variables, the theories of both timed and repetition-based programs, and exercise sequences that progress through the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels (Level 1–4 Halo Training).
Note to course or workshop participants, Halo Instructor Training is a unique, high-intensity interval training program that requires a high level of fitness, and is not suitable for those recovering from injury, pre-natal/post-natal participants or those unused to cardio-based exercise. Halo Training workshops are also a great way to get introduced to the program. Intro to Interval Training, Intro to Integrated Bodyweight Training and Building Intensive Interval Programs are all excellent ways to experience Halo Training and the levels of intensity this program offers. For more information on whether Halo Training is right for you, please contact an Education Advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon completion of one or both Instructor Foundation Course(s), participants will be able to teach the Halo Training method of exercise. Only upon the receipt of their certificate will they be entitled to identify themselves as a Halo Qualified Instructor.
The Halo Training System is applicable to all levels of clients and the workouts are designated in levels:
Level 1 – Entry level to fitness. This client is healthy but new to Halo training and has engaged in some physical activity. Exercises are used for foundational training to build proper biomechanics and begin building muscular strength and endurance
Level 2 – Moderate fitness level. This client has been working out regularly at least 2–3 times week for 3–6 months with bodyweight training or resistance training or has progressed from the Level 1 Halo training and can apply the principles of core stabilization effectively
Level 3 – Good fitness level. This client has been working out consistently at least 4–6 times a week for 8–12 months and is ready for additional challenge in a workout. These exercises are very challenging and require greater core stabilization and upper and lower body strength
Level 4 – Experienced exerciser or competitive athlete. This client has mastered all three previous levels and can perform expert level exercises
