It is a AUD$89 service. You simply need to film yourself completing 2 routine and upload to Dropbox or Vimeo. Then complete the Professional Development Form and pay the AUD$89.

Please allow 30 days to recieve your Feedback. 
Can anybody do The Jungle Body classes?
Absolutely! The Jungle Body is designed for anybody to be able to effectively workout at any age, weight, fitness or skill level. We offer a low intensity and kids program separately and in each normal class there are a range of options for you to go at your own pace. Speak to your instructor about your individual needs and ask them what options are available to you.
Will I lose weight with The Jungle Body?
The Jungle Body provides you with a range of movements that will shape, tone & sculpt your body as well as burn fat! Research has shown that KONGA® burns between 400 and 700 calories per 60 minute class. The exact expenditure during a class depends on a number of different variables, including exact weight, muscle content, fitness level and more. The more vigorously you do KONGA®, the more calories you will use. For example, fast plyometric routines that lead to a high heart rate will burn more calories than a KONGA® Cool Down.  Therefore, it is important that you follow The Jungle Body structure and choreography to ensure your class is given the right routines to achieve their goals.

Each Class is run independantly at a range of locations including Gyms, Halls, Rec Centres & Schools. Prices are generally AUD$10 Per class casually. A week of classes is worth $70.

Most of our music is clean or the Radio Edit, however, in some cases songs may have offensive language and subject matter. It is up to the Instructor what routines they deliver and therefore instructors can easily choose to not use routines that have any offensive language or subject matter. With over 1000 routines in our Workout Library there is never an issue finding new material for classes. 
Why are Jungle Body workouts so addictive?
The music is amazing with chart-topping beats plus the latest & greatest tunes! The movements are simplistic so that you can actually master the workout & get a fulfilling workout! The instructors are welcoming & the vibe is fierce!

The Jungle Body has no pre-requisites & we take Instructors on board from all over the Globe. However it is not for everyone. You will only be successful if you master Choreography & Technique, Correct Communication & you have the Passion & Drive. In terms of Insurance & Qualifications – this is looked at on a Personal Basis due to different Country requirements.
How long will it take to get qualified ?
Your E-Training takes roughly 8 hours to complete and then you need to film yourself completing two 4 minute routines. The filming of the routines may take you 10 minutes or a few days. It is totally dependant on your abilities. It is then a 14 day turnaround to get your Assessment marked by Head Office.

How many programs should I purchase? What are the benefits of teaching more than one Jungle Body Program?
You can purchase just one program like KONGA® however most Instructors purchase more than one program so that they have the ability to get more Choreography every month and offer more programming to their clients. You can mix up programs, such as teaching a KONGA® & BURN! fusion workout. This is a great way to get more out of your career. The License Fee only changes by a few dollars each month to teach more programs, so it is totally worth getting qualified in more programs.

ASSESSMENTS

What do I do once I film myself for my assessment?
Once you film yourself completing two routines, you need to upload the video to Dropbox, Vimeo or a similar online tool. Videos via email, WhatsApp, USB or other will not be accepted. You must ensure the video is made public and has no passwords, otherwise this will cause delays of up to 30 days. If you have trouble uploading your video please request assistance. 
What will I be assessed on?

You will be assessed on 18 elements. You must pass 10 elements to get your qualification. If you do not get 10 or more elements you will have 12 weeks to resubmit. You have unlimited opportunities to resubmit. Over the page you will see the Assessment sheet that will be used to assess you so you can ensure you cover every element. You will receive the Assessment sheet & feedback once we assess you. We will be assessing you on:
4 Steps & Cueing – We will be looking at how you flow through the steps, the amount of times you repeat a movement, the way you cue (verbally & non verbally) plus the quality of transitioning between movements.
Breakdown – We will be assessing your breakdown by reviewing how loud you speak, what you say, the length of time you take to breakdown, the way you move & the movements you choose to breakdown.
Technical Ability – We will be assessing your technical ability including dance technique, fitness technique, energy levels, intensity of movement & the way your body isolates/moves. We also will be looking at how well you mimic the Choreography video.
Musicality – You will be assessed on your ability to be on beat, to attach certain moves to particular parts of a song, the way you move to certain elements of the music & the way you express musicality.
Acting Ability, Creativity & Confidence – You will be assessed on your body language, ability to connect with your participants, your confidence & attitude plus your verbal communication throughout the routines.

Can you fail the training?
  • PASS – A pass means you are a Qualified Jungle Body Instructor in the Program of your choice & can teach immediately.
  • CONDITIONAL PASS – A conditional pass means that you have not successfully achieved all the elements in the Practical Assessment but we STRONGLY feel with a resubmit and our feedback - you can achieve it. You have 3 months to resubmit your Videos as many times as you like until you pass all the elements. We work with you to ensure you are successful.
  • FAIL – You have not achieved all the elements in the Practical and/or Written Assessment. 
Can I just submit the Written Assessment?
  • No, you must submit the Practical Assessment at the same time as the Written. The Practical Assessment gets uploaded to the internet and the link is pasted into the Written Assessment. 
Where is my Certificate?
  • Go to DOWNLOADS and then click on My Certifications. It will be uploaded there. 
What happens if I get an extention on my training and I still don't get it done in time? 

We offer 12 week extensions on your training. This means you get a total of 6 months to complete your training. If you do not get your assessment completed after the extra 12 week extension you will need to repurchase the training again.

What happens if I cannot get the assessment done within 12 weeks?

You have 12 weeks from the day of purchase to complete your KONGA® training. If you require longer you may request an extension for another 12 weeks. If you do not request an extension your training will expire & you will need to purchase the Training again. You can request a 12 week extension by completing this Extension Online Form.
