What to Expect / How to Plan: 

The audition is only 3-minutes, on stage, filled with creativity and inspiration. No set choreography or overly rehearsed presentation is required – it’s just you and the stage! Whether it’s cardio, strength or some other choreography, the key is motivation and confidence. Your presentation can include movement, lecture or a combination and equipment isn’t required. The judges are looking for quality verbal and visual cuing techniques plus the ability to lead the group and connect with the participants. It’s that simple!

Bring your students, friends, and family along to support you during the Fitness Idol Contest. These individuals can follow you on the ground in a simulated class while you teach from the stage! SCW can help you with your music and if special equipment is required just let us know.

All entries are accepted! WALK-INS WELCOME!
