  • What happens once I’m qualified?
    Once qualified as an instructor, you are then self-employed. So it’s up to you where you teach and how many classes. Some instructors teach 5 days a week, some only one morning – it’s up to you and what suits your life. Some of our instructors bring in 30-50 women per class, typically they charge £5 per person – so you can easily make your training fees back! You receive marketing advice and materials as part of your training and we are introducing a Turn’d Up Mentoring scheme, so established instructors can help newcomers.

Must be over 16, no previous qualifications are necessary.

This maintains you as an accredited Turn’d Up Fitness instructor. You will need to complete continued education over one half day session a year, which cost £30.
