Steps to get certified
WHO CREATED THE PROGRAM
Bombay Jam® has been created by Bollywood dancers, choreographers and nationally certified fitness instructors with years of experience in the industry. Safety, effectiveness and loads of fun are essential ingredients of this cutting edge program. Also, the program has been personally reviewed by Master Trainers from national certification organizations like AFAA.
Our core team of choreographers was born and raised in Mumbai, India, the heart of the Indian film industry. We’re authentic, original and the real deal.

WHAT INSTRUCTORS ARE SAYING
I was overjoyed with first the existence of Bombay Jam®, not to mention the training! As a huge lover of Indian music and dance, I was ecstatic to learn from some of the most beautiful and energetic dancers of the industry! Today, there are many fitness programs that claim they can do “Bollywood”, but they lack the authenticity and correct form of the art. Bombay jam® is actually taught by dancers from India! I felt like I learned so much about the Indian culture, the meaning behind the movements, the translation of song lyrics, and detailed information of the human anatomy! It was the most fun certification I have ever been a part of!Olga
The Bombay Jam® Instructor Training is a blast! Not to mention, you sweat…A LOT! The program is designed so well. It gives you all the tools and skills that you need to be successful a group fitness instructor. The content is delivered in such a fun and active way you don’t even realize you are learning cause it’s so fun! The instructors who conduct the training are so explosive and amazing that you can’t help but dance your heart out and push your limits!Roma
I have trained in several other programs but this program definitely is my favorite. I say this because it taught me right forms/techniques mentally and physically to become a good instructor rather than just an instructor. Another important thing I have learned is knowing what and where its working when I do the moves, which I think is important to understand as an instructor.Sandhya
Bombay Jam® Instructor Training and Certification gave me the tools I needed to become a successful instructor, from the philosophy and vision through to the mechanics of the program. The team is amazing and provides an excellent interactive forum to learn everything you need to know.Laura
Bombay jam® instructor training program was fun filled and informative. They used innovative teaching styles to tackle the different segments of the curriculum. I loved the way the program and the trainers emphasized on the importance of total body conditioning and having fun at the same time. Overall a great program run by an equally amazing set of trainers and teachers who provide a very welcoming environment.Neelu
