As well as a genuine love and passion for studio based health and fitness and the determination to learn, are the right ingredients for becoming a student on the Frame Fitness Teacher Training course.


Frame has been on a mission since 2009 to offer an alternative way to keep fit and stay active and crucially to make fitness fun, inclusive and for every-body and our educational arm Frame Academy, underpins these beliefs.

Students at the Frame Academy will benefit from a practical approach from tutors who bring this fun ethos into the classroom to ensure learners come away feeling confident and enthused about teaching. They are also shown how the impact of the group instructor can have a significant positive impact on the lives of their participants.

Frame really cares about the quality of exercise class instructing; from the technical aspect to the choreography, the music and how to ‘entertain’ your class and we feel like we’re in the best position with our experience to raise the standard of instructing across the industry.

Our passion, focus on quality and commitment to improving the level of group studio exercise offering across the industry make us an excellent educational choice.

We have purposefully designed  this training to equip people like you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to lead group exercise classes both within and outside of Frame. 

Upon completion of the course, there will be an opportunity for students to apply and trial to become an Instructor at Frame, 6-9 months after certifying. 



"What drew me to this course in particular is the amount of teaching/contact hours you receive, which I know some other courses out there don't include. The days are designed so well to give you the practical skills and theoretical knowledge needed for teaching in real life classes. The tutors on the course also made it such a great experience, they are all professionals working within the industry and all are so passionate and knowledgeable so could help out with whatever questions I had. I went into the course not so confident in my own skill set to teach group fitness, however on completing the course I have now been teaching professionally for 3 years and I love it! If you are thinking of becoming a group fitness instructor or even just want to further your knowledge and confidence, this is definitely the course to take!"
