Megan’s Story: Clubbercise has completely changed my life, both mentally and physically

Megan Topping Clubbercise Instructor

Growing up I was extremely shy and completely lacking in self confidence. I always believed that I wasn’t good enough, or that I wasn’t capable of doing what I wanted to do.

When I was 19 I came across an ad for a Clubbercise class near me. I was intrigued to see that it had glow sticks, disco lights and club anthems but most importantly it was taught in a darkened room where no one could see what I was doing. I thought “I’M IN!”

I was nervous about going to a class where I knew nobody but a week later I turned up, on my own, and stood as close to the back as possible. Before I knew it, I felt totally at ease.

I’d finally found a class that I absolutely loved and it felt like nobody was judging me or watching what I was doing.

I went home after that class on such a high, and straight away booked to go back the week after. As the weeks went by I made my way closer and closer to the front of the class. My confidence started to grow and I enjoyed it more and more each time. 

One week, after class, my instructor suggested that I look into doing the Clubbercise instructor training. At first laughed it off... me, do the training course, absolutely not! But the more I thought about doing it, the more I fell in love with the idea.

I booked onto the Clubbercise instructor training just four months after starting my first class, super nervous and not knowing what to expect, and I found something I loved to do.

 Inspired to do more, I also booked onto the ‘Kids Combo’ training so I could teach Clubbercise to children and families.

For me, it just felt like the more courses I took part in, the more my love for Clubbercise and fitness in general grew. Within 18 months, I qualified in Level 2 Exercise to Music, Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Training.

I went from being shy and quiet and too scared to get up in front of a class, to teaching ten fitness classes a week, working in a gym full time and running my own personal training business.

If anyone had asked me four years ago what I would be doing now, I would definitely not have believed that I would be where I am now.

Attending my first Clubbercise class four years ago has completely changed my life, both mentally and physically.

 I’ve also met other amazing instructors along the way who are a great support network.

If you have a dream, go for it! Don’t give up and remember that absolutely anything is possible.

Andy's Story: I've lost 6 stone and feel much more confident

BlogImage Andy2

My Journey first started just over 2 years ago when I went through a breakup with my wife.

I decided that I wanted to make a positive change in both how I looked and how I felt.

I experimented with different types of fitness such as boxing and circuit training. Whilst I went the classes and learnt a lot about my body I wasn’t really enjoying what I was doing. 

Once of my friends recommended Clubbercise to me due to the type of physical workout involved as well as the great atmosphere and tunes. I can honestly say that from my first class I instantly fell in love.

When I started going to my classes in Crewe I was the only man who went to the class. Some people may find it daunting however my teacher Emma is so motivating, welcoming and is always looking to get everyone involved. I go 2-3 times a week and cannot get enough! 

I've now lost 6 stone and feel much more confident about myself as well as meeting some amazing people along the way

Clubbercise has helped me so much and for anyone who has doubts about it my message would be to go for it. I can guarantee after one session you will want to go back for more!!!

Emma's story: Clubbercise changed my life after my arthritis diagnosis

Emma’s Story

In 2016 I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune disease. My left hip, back, pelvis, neck and hands get affected the most.

Due to the chronic inflammation in my joints, I struggled with pain management and I became extremely depressed, I couldn’t exercise as every time I tried the pain was so bad I’d want to cry. That caused me to comfort eat, I put on weight and got even more depressed. This was psychologically challenging for me as I’ve always exercised and kept relatively fit and healthy.

Towards the end of 2018, my friend Lisa told me she’d started Clubbercise with Mel. She said I should go with her and after a couple of months of her insisting, I thought why not!

What happened after the first class I can’t even put into words, I totally fell in love with Clubbercise! The music, the dancing, the atmosphere and the people, it was such an adrenaline rush and I loved it. I took it at my own pace and with every class that passed I became happier and could do a little more every time.

Clubbercise is my medicine and although it can never cure my condition, and I will still have flare ups and challenging periods of time, it is helping me manage not only my physical but mental health too.

Unfortunately I had to have an operation which meant I couldn’t go to class for 6 weeks in April and I felt lost and sad. I was so motivated to get better to get back to Clubbercise.

When I went back after my operation, Mel checked in with me and gave me some great advice; soon I started to feel fitter and healthier. I’ve lost weight, and I’m motivated to make better lifestyle choices. My partner and I try to go twice a week now when we can, I even find myself dancing to the songs at home.



I’ve met the most amazing people at classes who make Clubbercise so much fun, they inspire me so very much and I’ve made some great friends.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays are now my favourite days of the week!

Mel is such a wonderful instructor, she not only makes the classes so much fun, but she has been so caring and compassionate to me in my journey.

I’ve stopped needing to take my methotrexate which was the medication I was on and my mental health is in a very good place.

Mel asked me if I’d like to share my story; we’re hoping it’ll help anybody suffering with a similar condition to me to believe that there is hope amidst the pain and sadness.

Clubbercise has changed my life and I’d recommend everybody to try it, you’ll love it!

Clubbercise goes down a storm at WellFest, Dublin

The wellness event of the year in Ireland returned to Dublin on 11th and 12th May 2019 and featured over 150 of the best health, fitness and wellness experts and brands from all over the world.

It was the first time Clubbercise had appeared on the timetable and the sessions, presented by Sonique Smith and Scott James were packed out!

There were three Clubbercise classes each day on the Naked Juice stage with hundreds of people taking part, many of them experiencing Clubbercise for the first time.

Newbie Sarah said afterwards "Clubbercise was the highlight of my weekend, it reminded me of what exercise should be. Not something purely focused on aesthetics or performance... not something to punish your body. First and foremost it should be something fun. Clubbercise epitomizes this... It doesn't matter if you have two left feet (like me!) what matters is that you're moving in a way that invigorates your SOUL as well as your heart and your muscles!"
