You’ve almost certainly come to us because you’ve heard about our reputation as providers of ‘Gold Standard’ training for the dynamic and exciting fitness industry, but where did it all begin?
YMCAfit is a registered charity and began life as YMCA Training and Development, within the famous Tottenham Court Road Central YMCA Club, in London in 1984. It was there that a small group of visionary educators became inspired by a new exercise phenomenon sweeping the country, the use of music in exercise classes. Despite the massive growth in Exercise to Music (Aerobics) at that time, there was little or no opportunity for individuals to learn how to instruct classes which were creative, safe and effective. It was in answer to this demand that YMCA Training and Development was born.
