NS Municipal Elections 2020
Only 3 weeks to go before the municipal elections, and the candidates are starting to get around! If you're talking to any candidates in you area, please bring up a few fitness-related talking points:
1. municipalities don't have any official rules or policy to hire certified fitness instructors for classes or fitness facilities
2. having certified staff keeps everyone safer while working out; our exams and evaluations prove we've met safety & quality standards
3. as there is no legislation around qualifications to be a fitness instructor (*they likely don't know this, btw*) it is up to the municipalities to protect themselves and their citizens by making policies to hire certified instructors.
Please feel free to share my name & email address, and the NSFA website link, with any candidates who want more information.

In order to better understand how NSFA contributes to the Nova Scotia and how our certified fitness educators are compensated for their services, NSFA is conducted our first wage survey. This wage survey not only allows us to determine if our members are being adequately compensated for their work but also allows us to demonstrate to the province how much of an impact the fitness industry has.
We constructed two surveys below for our members to complete by the end of August 2018, one for group exercise leaders (GEL) and one for resistance and personal trainers (RT & PT).
