HFE & Qmotion

In order to meet the ever-rising demand for indoor-cycling classes, we have once again reached out to HFE, our long-term partner and preferred training provider, to upskill several members of our staff in Level 2 Group Indoor Cycling.

Indoor cycling continues to rise in popularity year-on-year, with Cycle classes repeatedly reported as the most popular gym classes across the UK. Due to this, many health club operators are struggling to keep up with the demand for instructors, but with the help of HFE, we’re taking action to meet the needs of our community.

HFE’s Level 2 Group Indoor Cycling will provide our instructors with an Ofqual-regulated, internationally recognised qualification, issued by YMCA awards. This qualification, also recognised by CIMSPA, will allow our instructors to motivate participants and deliver fun and engaging group cycling sessions.

Why indoor cycling?

Indoor cycling’s continuous increase in popularity may be due to the health benefits that it boasts, including weight loss and the ability to improve cardiovascular health and muscle endurance. Although it is an intense workout, indoor cycling is non-weight-bearing, so it is ideal for people who want to participate in cardio without putting too much stress on their joints. Cycle classes are typically 30-45 minutes in duration, providing a highly-effective training solution for those with busy schedules. Take a look at our class timetable on our Cycle page.

Our facilities

The course will be held at our own state-of-the-art studio which is equipped with 12 bikes and an abundance of other equipment. We take pride in the fact that our facilities are primed and ready to support our members in achieving their fitness goals.

It is also important to us to provide a venue which enables all to work out in a safe and comfortable environment. We offer inclusive spaces which accommodate a diverse set of needs and workout routines, including access to free weights, cardio equipment, resistance machines, female-only facilities and a broad selection of classes to suit everyone’s tastes.

Who are HFE?

HFE are an industry-leading training provider to the health and fitness sector, with an outstanding reputation for excellence. We are delighted to upskill our staff through HFE as we know that the quality of the training will be second to none, and our instructors will gain lifelong qualifications that will enable them to teach freestyle group cycling sessions using their own imagination and creativity.

For those looking to develop their skills and progress to Level 3 qualifications, HFE also offers a number of different accredited group exercise courses including yoga teacher training and Pilates teacher training. These courses grant students the opportunity to teach strengthening and holistic group classes to those who may prefer a different challenge from the fast pace of indoor cycling.

Additionally, a qualification in personal training may be a preferred route for students to take. HFE’s personal trainer courses are ideal for those looking to work on a more personal level with clients, and courses are delivered at our very own venue here at Qmotion.

Whether it is indoor cycling, Pilates, personal training or yoga, HFE offers a varied selection of first-rate courses which equip individuals with the skills needed to pursue a career in fitness. With their focus on freestyle group exercise classes, qualified instructors are given the freedom to deliver classes in their own style, while also avoiding the hefty license fees often associated with branded and pre-choreographed programmes.

Rick Gardiner, Head of Operations at HFE said, “We’re delighted to continue working alongside Qmotion Sports and Fitness Centre. Terry, Daniel and the Team at Qmotion run a fantastic facility for the students and wider membership, with a strong ethos for staff training and high-quality service provision.”

HFE have been a pleasure to work with, they have proven to be efficient and well organized and their variety of delivery options have allowed our staff to undertake courses, at a variety of times and cost options all while enhancing their skills. – Daniel Crooks - May, Qmotion Fitness Manager

Our partnership will allow us to keep up with the increasing demand for indoor cycling and will allow our staff to further expand the offering to our members, by providing engaging and exhilarating group exercise classes to all who are interested.
