Congrats to the 2021 Virtual Instructor Competition Winners!

Last week, 15 fitness instructor professionals joined us at our annual franchise convention in San Antonio to participate in the Final Round of the 2021 Virtual Instructor Competition and we were blown away by their enthusiasm, performance, and motivation!

The Final Round began with a Combine that included one-on-one interviews and short, choreographed isometric style workouts. Each competitor was evaluated on mental readiness, technical form, and workout queuing by judges Stephen P. Smith, CEO & HOTWORX Creator; Kasie Banks, Executive Marketing Director; Laura Valenti, Marketing Director- Franchise Performance; Carla Pesono, Assistant Marketing Director; and Victoria Price, Marketing Consultant & Franchisee. The following day, convention attendees were invited to participate in an Outdoor Workout where each of the Top 15 competitors led a portion of the workout to showcase their instructing skills.

The Virtual Instructor Competition Championship was held on Wednesday, July 21st. The competitors participated in an "Earn the Burn Posture/InterviewChallenge" and one on-stage final interview question answered in front of attendees at the annual HOTWORX & Planet Beach franchise convention.

We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2021 HOTWORX Virtual Instructor Competition-

5 Virtual Instructors: Maria Barr, Ashlee Buchert, Danica Kempinski, Tyler Kirkpatrick, and Kiki Searcy

2 Virtual Personal Trainers: Anthony Sciscento and Alexandra Sempek

Social Media Award: Danica Kempinski

2021 Virtual Instructor Competition MVP: Kiki Searcy

According to Banks, "What an incredible group for this year's Top 15 competitors! I'm confident that the 5 Virtual Instructors and 2 Virtual Personal Trainers we selected share the same passion we have in helping create positive change in the lives of others through our virtually instructed, infrared sauna workouts. We can't wait to work with this group and already consider them part of the HOTWORX family!"

Please join us in congratulating this year's winners! You'll be seeing them on social media and in a HOTWORX studio near you! Thank you to the fifteen competitors that joined us for the Final Round- we consider you part of the HOTWORX family as well and hope to work with you in the future!
