Level 2 Certificate in Fitness

Instructing Exercise to Music


YMCA Awards is the most recognised and sought after qualification in the fitness industry. Our courses are delivered by experienced and qualified tutors to guide you through the course.

The Level 2 Exercise to Music - Fitness Instructor course is designed with flexibility in mind. This course is offered as a full time option consisting of 6 days 9am - 5pm*.
