“I can’t thank the Vibe Exercise to Music team enough. Catherine and Olivia were very helpful and have a fantastic wealth of knowledge and experience! I would recommend the Exercise to Music Course through Vibe. I was made to feel very welcome and the tutors went above and beyond my expectations.” Clare Jordan

“Studying my ETM with the Vibe qualified tutors was a smooth and informative process. For me personally learning, I like to theorize then carry out practically and that is just how this course is carried out. We were provided with a learning structure and timetable that was more that manageable. The qualifier’s knowledge and personal support was second to one. There was passion and care throughout all of the learning and thanks to this I was passed with the knowledge skills and confidence to take my own classes” Laura McDyer

“I was warned that this would be tough and it was – I had to get my learning head on! However, I met a lovely group of people that were so supportive and made the process so much fun. The knowledge Catherine, Mary and Olivia have is incredible; ask as many questions as you can, prepare to eat, sleep, live ETM and remember to count to 32! I am so pleased that I’ve achieved my ETM and am excited to learn new concepts to take to my Vibe clients. ETM has opened up so many avenues and given me more confidence. Good luck”! Caite Antrobus

” The qualification requires alot of hard work especially if you have never taken this kind of course before and even though I have two left feet and a total lack or coordination I was successfully and patiently coached to achieve a positive result. There is plenty of support and help at hand and you are encouraged, motivated and mentored all the way through the course programme and beyond. I would definitely recommend the course, I have learnt so much in the short time I have been instructing and have gained so much valuable experience from all the incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and professional people that were involved. This course definitely unlocks your potential and provides you with all the tools you need to become an fitness instructor, im definitely looking forward to taking more vibe courses in the very near future”. Tim Sargent

“ETM is not like any other course I’ve done, it’s tough, fast and fun, am I pleased to be done?! Yes, such a great feeling! Thank you to all the Vibers for making this Zumbarista feel welcome and for giving me the support I needed to smash it!” Scott Aldridge

“If you are looking to further your education into the fitness industry I would highly recommend doing your ETM as most gyms and clubs require this to teach in their clubs. For me personally after a lot of research I’m glad I did mine through VIBE as all the paperwork and practical sessions where all planned out and easy to follow. The help and support you get is second to none.” Lee Hemming
