Animal Flow Level 1
Animal Flow® is an innovative new fitness program that combines quadrupedal and ground based movements with elements from various bodyweight training disciplines to create a fun, challenging, multi-planar workout.
By reconnecting to their bodies through movement training, Animal Flow® enthusiasts gain a better understanding of their bodies while enjoying increased mobility, flexibility, stability, power, endurance, skill and neuromuscular communication.
Whether you’re a personal trainer, a group fitness instructor, a coach, or other fitness professional, Animal Flow’s six components have maximal functional translation to client performance at every level.
Combine the elements for a complete, stand-alone workout, or use select components for dynamic warm-up, conditioning drills, or high intensity interval training; integrate themovements into resistance and strength training using circuits or supersets; or focus on the flows in your skills-based practice.
Animal Flow® is designed to fit into your existing training program and will complement and supplement what you already do, giving you another tool in your training arsenal.
Fitness professionals can teach and use Animal Flow® in a wide range of settings and formats:
Small Group Training
MMA and Sport Specific Training
L1 is an intensive two-day workshop (13 hours total) where you’ll learn all 30 Level 1 moves, including regressions, progressions, and variations for all skill levels. You’ll explore how and when to use each movement individually, as well as how to link them together into flows of your own design.
The workshop is open to fitness professionals and non-professionals, as we welcome everyone interested in becoming a better mover.
Fitness professionals are eligible to become Certified AF Instructors, who are allowed to teach AF in personal training, group fitness classes, or other fitness programs.
Becoming certified requires completing the test process after the workshop.
Non-professionals all welcome to take the course for their own benefit, but are not authorized to teach it without first attaining an appropriate fitness credential.
Level 1 Certified
Certified Level 1 Instructor
Examples of approved credentials would include:
If your credentials aren’t current or you aren’t sure if yours qualifies, contact Animal Flow.
While we aim to be flexible in recognizing that different fitness disciplines have different types of credentialing, we do require that you have some sort of other formal fitness training before you can become one of our Instructors. We are not a program where you can become a certified instructor simply by completing the 2-day workshop. If you intend to utilize Animal Flow as part of a fitness education/training program, it should be a supplement to, and not a substitute for, your regular fitness education.
You must complete a written exam, which is a 20-question multiple choice test you’ll take online after the workshop.
You must complete the live practical assessment. This is usually submitted on video 30-90 days after the workshop. This includes two parts: demonstrate that you can correctly perform the Level 1 moves; demonstrate that you can design a 90 second flow and coach somebody else through it. If you cannot submit within 90 days, you can request an extension with your stated reason. In some cities we also offer Live Group Test outs. You will receive detailed feedback on your test submission, and can resubmit if you don’t pass the first time.
