1. Am I fit enough to attend a BurleX Fitness Class?
BurleX Fitness classes provide a low/medium level of cardio fitness in the form of interval training. Everyone is encouraged to work at a pace that is comfortable for them. We offer various adaptations of core moves too, so no matter what shape or size, the moment you begin, you’re building up your own personal fitness level.
2. How do I find a BurleX Fitness instructor training day in my area?
Visit our ‘instructor courses’ page or alternatively send us an email stating your interest and we will help find the closest course to you. If we don’t have any training days in your area, please contact us with your details and we will inform you when a nearby course is available.
3. Are there any prerequisites?
There are no formal prerequisites to attend a one day BurleX Fitness instructor course other than being over the age of 18 years. We do recommend you have a dance or fitness background with some teaching experience. If you enjoy motivating and supporting others then this is the perfect job for you. If you have no teaching experience, we may recommended that you sit a minimum qualification of Level 2 Exercise to Music. For our home learning students, we ask that you to already teach other styles of dance or fitness and can provide evidence of relevant teaching qualifications.
4. What is the difference between a one day BurleX instructor course and the home study course?
The home study option allows you the same working opportunities as the one day course although you have 6 months to complete. With the home study course you can choose your own days and hours you wish to study and learn around your current work schedule. The contents of the course are split into five sections consisting of four theory and one practical element. You will be provided with a range of BurleX Fitness choreographed routines showing a mix of prop and core steps through video links. Video chats are also available with home study trainees and a lead BurleX instructor is always at hand to discuss any questions you may have regarding your training.

6. How much is a training course?
Our certified one day instructor course costs £180.00. Our instructor home study course costs £200.00.
7. What happens after I sign up?

8. What is the instructor licence and how long does it last?
The instructor licence is an agreement between the instructor and BurleX Fitness Ltd. It allows the instructor to use BurleX Fitness marketing material, brand logo name, receive new monthly choreographed routines and have access to free advertising through the website and BurleX social media sites. You will become part of the BurleX instructor network and have continual support from our team, with choreography tips from our instructor trainers as well as invitations to workshops and masterclasses.
The licence fee costs £120.00 (the first year is paid in advance). This subscription is an automatic recurring fee through Paypal and needs to be activated within a fortnight of qualifying from your course. Ongoing subscriptions after the first year can continue annually or purchased on a monthly basis priced at £15.00 per month. Our prices can’t be beat and there are no other hidden costs or fees.
