The Level 2 YMCA Certificate in Exercise to Music is designed for those who wish to gain a qualification to further their career aspirations in the fitness industry, or to prepare them for further training or education.

What will I do?

The Exercise to Music course will teach you the skills and knowledge required to plan and prepare a group exercise to music session with apparently healthy adults – both individuals and groups.

  • How to maintain health, safety and welfare in a variety of fitness environments, including the safeguarding of children and vulnerable eating
  • How to programme safe and effective exercise for a range of clients, the health benefits of physical activity and the importance of healthy eating
