Support change and influence decisions

The Voice of Group Exercise campaign has been set up to provide a channel for group exercise instructors to feed into the decision making process of EMD UK

EMD UK’s mission is to support instructors to be the best they can be. This means we put instructors at the heart of the decisions we make.

To make these decisions truly representative of the instructors who #StandAtTheFront, we need your help.

We are looking for a diverse group of instructors who care about the future of group exercise

As a Voice of Group Exercise Councillor, you’ll be passionate about:

  • Instructor support
  • Industry standards
  • Promoting quality through teaching
  • Inclusive delivery through support, information and CPD

You’ll believe that participants should get the very best experience in every class they go to. This belief will drive the support and change you want to see for group exercise instructors.

  • Attend two virtual and two in person council meetings in an advisory capacity to provide views, comments, and insight to EMD UK’s senior management team and board of directors per year
  • Be part of the changing landscape of group exercise with the opportunity to shape new projects and campaigns
  • Attend an EMD UK event if/when possible
  • Appropriately represent the EMD UK brand and champion our vision and mission

Your opinions and experience can make a true difference to representation of group exercise and the workforce across the sector and beyond!

  • Recognition of working with the national governing body, by supplying you with a logo and confirmation of agreement in writing
