Intro

Our Level 2 Exercise to Music qualification provides an exciting entry-level route into the fitness industry. It’s perfectly tailored for those looking to become an ETM or group exercise instructor, particularly if you’re interested teaching private classes. The course has also proved incredibly popular for those looking to teach lucrative pre-choreographed programmes like Zumba, Bokwa, Insanity, and Les Mills. If any of those areas interest you then this qualification is a must-have to advance your career.

YMCA Awards (formerly CYQ) provide certification for this course, while REPs award 20 CPD points for this qualification. As there are no formal prerequisites, besides some basic experience of exercise to music, it really is a rewarding way to get into the industry.

The course is delivered using blended learning, which our a tried and tested method for delivering the best education experience possible. You’ll initially complete a period of home study, supported by our experienced tutors and comprehensive online resources. The practical elements of the course require four days of attendance, split over two weekends. Finally, there are a series of assessments which allow you to demonstrate everything you’ve learned up to that point.

Group exercise tutors, particularly ETM, are the backbone of studio-based exercise. The popularity of this field continues to grow and this provides near limitless employment opportunities. The most popular route is becoming a freelance instructor, teaching either your own classes, or pre-choreographed ones (e.g. Les Mills). There’s an immense amount of freedom and creativity to be found in exercise to music, and we frequently hear about past students establishing themselves in the industry without ever teaching a class in a gym. This qualification also provides an easy to progression route to Level 3 group exercise such as Pilates and yoga.

Course content

As this is a nationally-recognised qualification, and not just a workshop, the course will prepare you for a career in the industry. Everything we teach can be directly applied and utilised when you’re working. In addition to exercise to music/group exercise elements, you’ll also learn Level 2 Anatomy and Physiology.

The following is by no means an exhaustive list, but it will give you a good grasp of what lies ahead:

Lesson planning:

  • Adapting programmes to client ability, and utilising space and equipment available
  • Developing short, medium and long term goal systems
  • Adaptations, alternatives, and progressions

Utilising music for exercise

  • Selecting and structuring music
  • Ideal speeds for various phases/exercises (pulse raiser, prep-stretches, aerobic build-up etc)
  • Music legalities

Warming up and cooling down

  • Pulse raisers
  • Preparation stretches
  • Developmental stretches

Other units include:

  • MSE concepts and exercises
  • Body conditioning concepts and exercises
  • Aerobic training concepts
  • Critical evaluating skills

Assessment

We design our assessments to bring out the best in your abilities, both in terms of theory and practical elements. Throughout the course you’ll be required to complete:

  • Worksheets – including: health and safety, and supporting and managing clients
  • Multiple choice theory exams – anatomy and physiology, and principles of exercise and fitness
  • Group exercise lesson plan
  • Summative assessment – here you’ll complete a practical group exercise session which lasts 45-60 minutes and is observed directly by an assessor

All students are required to bring along two healthy participants for day four, the practical assessment day. They will participate in the assessment as class members.

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites in order to enrol on this course, though students need experience of partaking in exercise to music programmes. A grasp of basic ETM steps and choreography is also important. Our recommendation is for all students to attend at least 2-3 choreography-led group exercise classes during the distance learning period.
