Are the instructors teaching for the Parks and Recreation Dept. certified?

I am very happy to say that the Parks and Rec Department here (Gillette, Wyoming) only hires certified staff.  We have to have our current certs on file.  However, no matter where you work out, regardless of the club, you may always inquire about thier specialties.  It never hurts to double check and see if any of your instructors and professionals are certified in what they say they are.  This is not offensive, but proactive toward your health.

Not always. Some of the programs offered by your local parks and recreation may be led by volunteers. If you have any special needs, be sure to contact the program director or the class instructor prior to taking a class.
