Intro

Step aerobics/step exercise to music is an exciting variation of general aerobic exercise and it continues to be one of the more popular forms of studio-based exercise. Our Level 2 Step Exercise to Music course is an essential addition to any exercise professionals’ repertoire, particularly group exercise instructors. Similarly, if you’ve been informally teaching step classes for years and need to gain the appropriate qualifications to do so, this fully-accredited qualification is the ideal fit.

The qualification is certificated by YMCA Awards (formerly CYQ) and we deliver it via a blend of home study and practical workshop attendance. To ensure you succeed, we provide you with a range of learning materials, including training manuals, comprehensive e-learning materials, and extensive support from our experienced tutors.

On the course itself, you’ll learn a wide-range of choreography that are pitched at varying levels of difficulty, engaging methods of planning and teaching step classes, and important anatomy and physiology considerations.

Course content

Everything you learn from the moment you enrol can be applied on the job, so your time will be fully maximised. After all, that’s why we provide this qualification, to give people the tools and knowledge to advance their career in the industry. The following is just a sampling of what you can expect on course:

  • Basic and advanced step choreography
  • Developing and adapting choreography for different participants
  • Teaching and evaluating step classes
  • Benefits of step exercise
  • Adapting and progressing step exercise to music classes
  • Health and safety considerations
  • Working effectively with music

Assessment

The course is comprised of several assessment elements, designed to test you in a range of ways:

  • Knowledge-based assessments which include theory exams and a written lesson plan
  • Practical workshop where you’ll be assessed on your ability to deliver a step class
  • Self-evaluation of teaching skills

Prerequisites

In order to enrol on this course, you’ll need to possess a Level 2 Fitness Instruction qualification, and this can either be as a gym, or exercise to music instructor. In addition to the academic requirements, it’s recommended that you have a keen interest in group exercise and be able to perform and follow basic choreography.

    I decided to take voluntary redundancy and try something totally different at 57! The HFE course of distance learning suited my needs and pace as I had not done any previous fitness training before.

    I found out about HFE from the colleague and didn't hesitate as it was the cheapest course I've found. Following recommendations I haven't been disappointed. We had a fantastic tutor and the whole communication was very easy.

    The course was brilliantly done over a two day weekend... The tutor was very knowledgeable on the subject and gave lots of support to myself and the students. The exams were multiple choice and the tutor helped us the day before with a review of what we should have learnt for the exam.
