Study online and become a fully certified Methodology X™ Instructor.
Drawing directly upon Dan’s 24 year international coaching career, 20,000 hours of coaching and a decade of training supermodels, we now offer a comprehensive online qualification so you can teach his breakthrough portfolio of Methodology X™ group classes.
Inspired by the popularity of our 28 day online workout Methodology X, the classes help women of all ages firm, tone and sculpt their bodies. They teach women to think like athletes, move with grace and achieve real body confidence. Known as “the fitness bible for models” the classes utilise a mix of pilates, athletic conditioning, core work, combat, mindfulness, ballet and strength training.
Methodology X Classes have been tested and refined since our London launch in 2016. We are excited to now offer you a complete and comprehensive learning experience with ongoing support, to help you teach the Methodology X Classes, grow as a coach and make your classes a commercial success. This course is suited to fitness professionals who want to take their business further by offering a popular new class to their services. More importantly however, you need to share our philosophy that one can achieve an athletic mind/body connection with the desire to empower women by helping them achieve a healthy and positive body image.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the class for? Individuals who wish to sculpt and tone their bodies. They prefer the form, toned, athletic and ‘Victoria Secret’ aesthetic rather than a fitness model/bodybuilder look. It is also for women who want to do a scientifically designed workout that achieves real results; is fun, interesting and works the class goer hard making them sweat and tired but empowered. It is designed mainly for women in their 20’s and 30’s who exercise regularly. Due to its origins and results gained, it has proved popular with 20-something fashion models, but we do NOT market it as an exclusive model only class. We are an inclusive brand and all women (and men if you want) are welcome. Please note, due to the advanced nature of many exercises, it is not suited to individuals who are extremely unfit, or very under/over weight.
What equipment do the classes use? Gym balls and yoga mats. Some classes also use boxes/blocks, and some are 100% equipment free designed for versatility of location, such as the park or beach. As an Instructor you also need a stopwatch or timer app on your phone. Our certification course details exactly what you need to set up each class depending on expected class numbers.
What are your certification pre-requisites? Our qualification is open to all certified Fitness Instructors, Group Instructors, Strenth Coaches and Personal Trainers. As the Methodology X programme is a speciality qualification, you may need a general group exercise certificate for insurance. Be sure to check with your national governing body or local guidelines to see what the requirements are in order for you to teach.
What exactly will I learn? The course is split into 40 lessons that cover all you need to teach the varied suite of HIIT style Methodology X Classes. These include Signature, Gaga, Elle Express, Vanity Flair, Core Secrets and more. Every exercise is explained in detail with positioning, movement, tempo (eccentric, concentric and intra-rep rest) common mistakes, modifications, with the functional and aesthetic benefits clearly explained. You will also learn the art of advanced communication, gain Marketing and PR knowledge along with key business lessons and personal insights from fellow Instructors. Methodology X is a small but growing family, and we are all here to help each other teach these classes so we can help more women all over the world train right and feel body confident.
Is there an examination? Yes. On many of the lessons, we require you to pass a multiple choice exam. Only by passing these exams can you progress through the course and eventually qualify.
It is REP’s certified? No. Dan has previously created, lectured and assessed REP’s approved qualifications. He feels rather than adding value to you as a coach, adapting the course to standardised REP’s protocols would dilute the content and make the course less practical, less insightful, less enjoyable and more expensive. One of the key long-term objectives at the Dan Roberts Group is to improve coaching standards and our Methodology X qualification is one of the ways we hope to achieve this.
Do you take a percentage of my class fees? No and we never will. We want to empower Instructors. Coaches remain enthusiastic, commit to high coaching standards and consistently and constantly market the class, so they are the most financially successful.
Is this just for UK based coaches? No. Our HQ is in London, so this is where we launched the first Methodology X Class (in summer 2016 with our friends, Blok in East London). The success of the class amongst trainers, the public and the visiting media, has confirmed our belief that Methodology X Classes should be available everywhere! We have created a 100% online qualification and online live support programme to allow Instructors from all over the world, be part of our family, teach Methodology X™ and grow as trainers develop themselves as fitness professionals. Our Methodology X 28-day workout has been sold in over 42 countries and the Methodology X brand has already enjoyed national press exposure in UK, France, Germany, Spain, Australia and USA.
What happens after my 12-month licence runs out? Only students that have passed the entire course will obtain a licence to hold Methodology X Classes and use our copyrighted logo and promotional content. A 12-month licence is included in the initial course fees of £275. To maintain high standards, after year one you will be given additional material and a new online exam that you must pass to continue representing Methodology X. From year 2 we will charge £65 per annum (or £6.50 pcm) as an Instructor membership fee. This allows you to get another 12-month licence from us with support.
How exactly do I access the course? The course is on this website. Upon pressing ‘ENROL NOW’, you will be taken to our secure shop where you enter your payment information. Within 60 seconds of submitting this, you will be sent an email asking you to set your password. Once this is done, (and from now onwards, whenever you need access) look for the LOGIN link at the top left of any page or the LOGIN TO METHODOLOGY X on the footer menu. Follow the links to Instructor page and type in your username, email and password. You will have access to the course for 12 months (see above). The course was written to be useful to you long after you qualify as it is full of practical insights and tips.
