We offer the perfect opportunity for anyone who has experience with Group Fitness, Aerobics and/or Zumba and who would love to experience life in a tropical island community!
Situated in the Lhaviyani Atoll, our beautiful island community on Naifaru Island needs passionate fitness instructors to run a group fitness programme.
Fitness volunteers who come to our island can expect to find a fully equipped aerobics centre where women of the island go to daily training sessions.
Being a community where women are often the ones burdened by household work as well as looking after the children as well as any job they may have, expect to see the daily group fitness as a welcome break from the daily chores. Join our community as a group fitness instructor and you will be very warmly received by the women in your classes. Guaranteed!
As this is an isolated and conservative community, one goal of the programme is to empower our women to be more active in society. The group fitness programme is one way to break the daily routine and offer an alternative to a life of household chores.
Normally the group fitness classes are run by local volunteers who are very enthusiastic and determined. However, they are untrained and relatively inexperienced. By joining our team of volunteers, you would not only mean a great deal in the life of the women of the island, but by training local volunteers, you are sure to leave a lasting impression!
- Coordinate and conduct fitness / Zumba classes for the island's women
- Conducting training sessions for our local trainers
- Conducting men's fitness classes
- Participating in the organization's community events when needed.
The only thing we need before you are ready to sign up is that you are;
- A qualified instructor in aerobics, zumba or any other low-impact exercises
- Passionate about teaching and empowering women
- A person with an open mind towards other cultures
- Willing to commit yourself to helping our community!
What's in it for you?
Apart from the opportunity to be part of building our community, with everything that brings; the gratitude of our community, a chance to teach and learn more about that which you are most passionate about, we offer our staff a variety of special experiences. These range from island excursions, reef snorkelling, swimming, beach BBQ, to community events that will allow you to get an inside view of life in a remote Maldivian community!
As our group fitness instructor you will be given FREE accommodation in our volunteer house which has all the modern amenities you could wish for: WiFi, DVD, ceiling fans in every room and bathrooms attached to every room and a lot more!
We do not require a fee for this position
Minimum commitment for this position is 3 months. Applicants who can commit more than three months will be preferred.
