Frame Academy is the teacher training arm of Frame Health & Fitness studios and is best known for pioneering the modern day specialist studio instructor movement in London. Frame was born in 2009 and Pip Black and Joan Murphy set out to create a more positive approach to health and fitness, and disrupted the fitness industry with a class-based concept based on the idea that moving your body should never feel like a chore, and exercising in a fun yet effective way, will make you feel great!

We believe in the power of sweet endorphins and the magical effects it can have on our mind and bodies, fast forward to today and we now have 7 studios across Central London, and put on 6,000 classes a week on our expansive online and in studio timetable.

We’ve used our experience gained from 12 years in the industry to offer top quality classes, taught by top quality instructors and are now revolutionising the fitness education sector with our Frame Academy.

The mission of the Frame Academy is to improve the quality and consistency of Teacher Training in the Fitness and Pilates industries, with innovative course offerings covering everything you actually need to know to be a successful instructor - from body composition to structuring a class and business. Our courses are taught by current instructing teachers to make everything relevant to real industry and designed carefully to fit around full time employment.

If you’re looking to step away from the humdrum of the standard gym treadmill and add another string to your bow, move into a new career trading in your 9 - 5 for something more rewarding, or you just want your natural performer to shine through and inspire people to be more healthy and happy then Frame Academy could be just for you.


"The lead teachers, Emily and Michael, are fantastic - so lovely, knowledgeable and approachable... On the Frame course we started teaching each other from the get go, getting comfortable talking to a group, instructing others and finding your voice as a teacher." Read the Full Review Here.

"Amazing and transformational... Easy to fit in around having a job... I can't recommend it enough."

Nicola Peters, Yoga

The course was delivered by two knowledgable and passionate women who work with pre and post natal women on a daily basis. There was more practical than theory which is so important when putting your knowledge into practice with clients. Frame also provided their own handbook to go alongside the Active IQ LAP, which goes into further detail than any other course I have been on. I would highly highly recommend!
