FAQs

From entry requirements to learner support, we've answered the most frequently asked questions about our exercise to music courses.

What prior qualifications do I need for exercise to music?

You don't need any prior fitness qualifications to enrol on our exercise to music courses, but some experience taking part in ETM classes would be beneficial - unbranded programmes tend to work best. To get off on the best foot, an understanding of basic exercise to music steps and choreography is also important.

If you're looking to know more about the qualities needed to succeed in exercise to music, international fitness presenter Kardy Laguda has offered his top tips.

What will I learn on your exercise to music courses?

In summary, you'll learn everything you need to become a world-class group exercise instructor. This includes: concepts of using music for exercise; teaching and evaluating classes; MSE (muscular strength and endurance) concepts, and effective choreography for your chosen discipline. You’ll also develop a working knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology.

Once qualified, what types of classes will I be able to teach?

The options are almost limitless once you're a qualified instructor. Work is available on a freelance basis in gyms and health clubs, or you can create your own programmes and hire out private facilities. You'll also have the option to teach branded programmes like Les Mills, Bowka and Beachbody, or even pole/hoop fitness - in these cases extra training and licensing fees may apply.

How will I be supported on my course?

As with every course and qualification we deliver, unlimited student support comes as standard. We have some of the very support tutors and assessors in the industry, the majority of whom deliver exercise to music classes of their own.

This is coupled with cutting-edge learning resources which include: bespoke manuals, video lectures and access to digital manuals via the HFE app. Also available is exclusive choreography from international instructor Kardy Laguda.

What are progression options after I qualify?

Many of our graduates look to branch out into other forms of group exercise, with yoga and Pilates proving the most popular. As personal training is such a big part of the fitness industry, this is also a very rewarding career path worth considering.

Are these recognised exercise to music courses?

100%, yes. YMCA Awards, the industry's original awarding body, provide certification for our various exercise to music courses. They're also accredited by the Register of Exercise Professionals (REPs) and endorsed by CIMSPA.

    Everyone was really friendly and helpful. I found that they would give as much or as little support as needed - I was worried that the course would be too much for me but there was no pressure.

  • Rating: 5 out of 5

    Really impressed with the HFE course. Although it was hard work, with help from my online tutor I passed and I am now teaching regular classes. It was great that I could do online learning and grasp things in my own time without the computer.

  • Rating: 5 out of 5

    The level 2 ETM course provided by HFE was fantastic, the period of time to get everything done was just right and the weekends that we had to attend were fun-filled and extremely helpful.
