Here you can find everything you need to deliver a fitness/dance based session at your school.

We have resource cards and videos to expand your knowledge and confidence, as well as training opportunities and exciting competitions that your class can get involved with. You will also find all the resources that you will need to be part of the School Games dance competition.

Guidance for Beginners

Support for organisations

Especially if you are a new instructor, it is easy to forget that some of your class attendees may also be completely new to the world of group exercise fitness.

We provide a simple set of guidelines for class beginners so that you can provide similar information to your own attendees or potential attendees.

A-Z of Group Exercise Styles

Endorsement and Development

Group exercise offers a fantastic variety of classes to suit every age, ability and interest.

With so many to choose from we’ve put together a helpful A-Z of each style to give you all the information you need to decide which one you’re going to try first.

Health and Fitness for Active Aging

Professional development

This has been one of our key driving principles since we first formed in 2006, when our founding organisations – The Medau SocietyFLexercise, and the Keep Fit Association (KFA) – joined forces to form an umbrella body for exercise, movement and dance. Our founder organisations are some of the most established experts in group exercise offering a range of exercises suitable for all ages, particularly older adults looking for a challenging yet safe and fun exercise experience.

Let’s Get Started…

Group exercise is an exciting and diverse mix of styles and activities that caters to ‘someone like me’ and everyone should have the opportunity to take part. EMD UK is committed to driving positive change within the industry and we believe that through cooperation and collaboration with industry bodies, understanding and removing the barriers that prevent people from taking part and by supporting instructors to deliver excellence, we can achieve a healthier nation through exercise.
