we are unique

Our individuality sparks from two different aspects of the business…

Firstly, we provide a business model to allow likeminded people to train to become ChiChi Fit instructors – getting paid to dance and keep fit all whilst living their Broadway dream!

Secondly, we come from theatrical training backgrounds so are able to provide the very BEST training and choreography. ChiChi Fit have created fabulous, ready-to-go routines and playlists to save you valuable time and hard work.

craig revel horwood – Ambassador

For such a showbiz-centric workout, I made it my mission to find someone I felt embodied the fun and sparkle of my unique offering, to endorse it and eventually become the Ambassador of ChiChi Fit.

Enter Craig Revel Horwood! Craig loved the idea of a Musical Theatre inspired fitness class and was instrumental in setting up and developing the ChiChi Fit programme, acting as a valued mentor and inspiration. He’s been unbelievably kind and supportive. Together, we developed ChiChi Fit’s first class along with the huge vision for ChiChi Fit’s future…all over the country and worldwide!

It is such an honour to have BBC Strictly’s favourite judge, proudly spreading ChiChi’s message of fun and fabulous dance fitness!

Today, with a larger supporting team at ChiChi HQ, we have newly-trained instructors spreading ChiChi joy everywhere they go, including Australia, USA and Ireland.

“Look at me, can’t you see I’m FABULOUS baby” Sister Act

We recently received an email enquiry from a lady considering training as a ChiChi Fit instructor. After referencing everything she loves about ChiChi Fit, along with her reason’s for wanting to become an instructor, she asked,

“What does it feel like to be a ChiChi Fit instructor?” 

This picture sums it up perfectly! You feel like you’re taking your class on an exciting, glamorous adventure into the dazzling, theatrical world that is Musical Theatre.

Dancing along to the best showtunes takes you on a journey to FEEL happier, to FEEL more positive, to FEEL healthier, to FEEL stronger and to dazzle like the star of your own Broadway show. You leave each class FEELING FABULOUS! (and a little sweaty!) 

We’re so excited to be opening our studio doors once again and welcoming new instructors to our LIVE in-person trainings. AND, we’re keeping our ONLINE trainings on offer too so there’s something to suit everyone.
