Become an Instructor

About the training

NEXT COURSE: SEPTEMBER 12 & 13

  • Would you like to change your life and improve the lives of other women? 

    By training as a Turn’d Up Fitness instructor, you’ll become part of a unique community of women, helping others across the UK (and the world!) to improve their fitness and health with our original, fun dance workouts. Our instructor training is suitable for anyone with a love of dance and fitness and a passion for changing people’s lives.

     

    Do you want to inspire and motivate? 

    Leading a class means helping other women to achieve their personal fitness goals, lose weight and learn some killer dance moves. As an instructor you’ll create a supportive, nurturing environment where you can connect with your class and inspire them to become the best version of themselves – there’s no better feeling!

     

    Want to work when it suits you and fits in around your life commitments? 

    We pride ourselves in providing a flexible approach, enabling women to work with us regardless of their commitments and circumstances. You can work as an instructor alongside your existing full or part-time job. If you’re a mum, or carer, you can timetable your classes so that they fit in around your family.

    Some of the instructors teach Turn’d Up full time and can earn up to £1000 a day. Others teach one or two classes per week and use their TUF earnings to supplement their income.

     

    Are you tired of working in a job that doesn’t make you happy and bring you fulfilment? 

    Only you have the power to change your destination in life. Work is where you’ll spend the majority of your waking hours. If you feel stuck in a rut and uninspired by your current job and you love Turn’d Up, you know what to do! Take control of your destiny and switch to a career with the scope to make you feel happier and more energised, with every session you lead.

    Am I fit / young / thin enough to be an instructor?

    We welcome ALL women to train as instructors. You don’t need any previous experience in dance or fitness, you just need to love our vibe. Women of all ages, shapes and sizes are qualified Turn’d Up instructors.

     

    Do you long to feel valued and that your contribution and hard work is making a difference?

    Our culture promotes raising women up and giving them the support they need to go all the way. We will hold your hand and stick with you for the long haul, long after you’ve completed your initial training course. We want you to reach your full potential and believe in offering the praise and recognition our instructors deserve for their hard work and all that they give to the TUF movement.

    Whoever you are and whatever you do, if you love dance and fitness, our Training Course will offer you the skills and foundation to offer the Turn’d Up experience to groups of all levels.

    Here are just some of the testimonials that we’ve received from graduates of the course:
