Exercise to Music (ETM) instructors work in fitness centres and health clubs, they also teach in community centres, church halls, schools - in fact, wherever there's a suitable space and a stereo. A majority of ETM instructors work freelance, delivering a number of classes a week, boosting their income and enjoying the flexibility to work around their existing lifestyle. Some decide to teach full-time and they often become involved in the running of the club itself as studio coordinators. Wherever ETM instructors go with their career, one thing they all share is a love of music and a love of fitness.
You will learn to use your personality to inspire groups of people of different ages and abilities. The emphasis on freestyle teaching allows students to express their creativity and imagination confidently when delivering a studio class.
You will be taught by our highly qualified tutors who tailor their delivery to suit your individual learning style. You will achieve a recognised qualification. This qualification can also be used for those wishing to teach Body Training Systems.
