  • GFM Concepts, methodology and philosophy behind the system

What are the benefits of becoming a Ground Force Method Certified Instructor?

  • Advertise your classes, programs or facility with the GFM name and logo.
  • Receive a vast amount of information, videos and other supporting materials to help you design programs, training protocols and flows, workshops, and marketing efforts

The GFM Level 1 Instructor Certification is a very practical and immediately usable course and includes a great deal of supplementary reading materials and marketing information for instructors.

Testing

  • The skills test is on the last day of the course in order to successfully complete your GFM Level I Certification. If unsuccessful on the testing day you will have 30 days to send your course instructor a retest video.

GFM LEVEL 2  (GFM2)

The GFM Level 2 Instructor Certification is a 12-hour course where you will learn how to use and teach the following:

  • Bodyweight progressions
  • Object training
  • Partner body progressions
  • Mixed challenges and how to program them
  • More games!

GFM2 is the logical next step for GFM1 coaches. We use the same movement patterns, but we organize them differently. Our goal is to progress from bodyweight mobility, integrated and playful movement, toward using tools we can find either in nature or in the functional gyms of today.

GFM2 presents a logical progression using more advanced bodyweight skills with more partner exercises – while adding games and creating the FLOW in the training session.

GFM Instructor Certification comes with an Instructor Manual and access to instructor only downloadable video and educational content for review and further study.

YOU MUST BE A CERTIFIED GFM1 INSTRUCTOR in order to enroll in a GFM 2 Instructor Certification.

With the successful completion of your GFM2 certification, your GFM1 Instructor diploma will be renewed for two years.

Testing

  • There is no skills test for the GFM Level 2 Certification.

 

GFM JUNIOR (GFMJ)

The GFM Junior Instructor Certification is a 12-hour course where you will learn how to use and teach the following:

  • The GFM Junior Exploration and GAIT patterns
  • The 9-Elements of a GFM Junior lesson
  • Dealing with disciplinary issues
  • Lesson plans and games
  • Pre-instructor/Young leadership training
  • Intensity levels and diversity within sessions

GFM Junior is Ground Force Method’s way to teach movement to children, naturally, creatively, and reflexively. We use many of the same movement patterns as we do with adults, but we organize them differently and add shorter more dynamic sections, tailored to the specific age group.

GFM Junior presents logical progressions from the ground up, using exciting games and short flows, while adding games, GAIT patterning, and attending to the emotional and social needs of children and adolescents.

GFM Instructor Certification comes with an Instructor Manual and access to instructor only downloadable video and educational content for review and further study.

YOU MUST BE A CERTIFIED GFM1 INSTRUCTOR in order to enroll in a GFMJ Instructor Certification.
