Recent reports suggest that around 4.86 million people participate in group exercise classes each week. Given the year-on-year growth the fitness industry has experienced over the last decade or so, this figure is only set to increase as more and more people discover the fun, health and social benefits of studio-based exercise.
Our Level 2 Exercise to Music course is an entry-level qualification that has been expertly designed to help you to get your foot in the studio door and kick start your career as a group exercise to music instructor.
This qualification will not only equip you with the skills and confidence to teach your own group exercise classes that are choreographed to the beat, phrase and style of the music. It’s also an entry-requirement for branded programmes like pole fitness, Bokwa, Insanity and, of course, Les Mills.
This ETM course is fully accredited by YMCA Awards and recognised by leading employers across the world. It’s also fully endorsed by CIMSPA.
There are no formal entry requirements for this course, although you will need some experience of taking part in exercise to music classes as a participant. Ideally, these will be classes that involve freestyle choreography rather than pre-choreographed sessions.
Throughout the distance-learning phase of the course, we strongly recommend that you attend 2-3 classes per week to learn the choreography and develop your ability to work to the music.
Our ETM course is designed with your long-term success in mind. During your studies, you’ll experience world-class teaching and learning resources and highly engaging and energetic practical delivery at one of our leading nationwide venues.
