However it should be stressed that F2F HQ recommend that all instructors utilise Soulful House, Funk and similar genres of dance music as this groove and feeling is the essence of FIT2FITE, Fighting Moves To Funky Grooves. The “four to the floor” beat indicative of these genres of music is paramount for the training system to flow and feel right. Soulful house with this its steady beat, uplifting vocals and musical dexterity fits the Four Step Format perfectly. Remember you don’t have to like it to learn to love it!

Music: FIT2FITE believes that with Exercise to Music the music comes first, not the routine. If Instructors are not playing the music for their classes in their cars, on their IPod’s and through their headphones then they should not be subjecting their classes to it. The F2F 4S4 was constructed around Funky Grooves, namely Soulful House Music and Funk. If the Fighting Move does not fit or feel right fo your selected track then do not use it. F2F creator Greg Francis believes that pre-choreographed routines inhibit Instructor interpretation of the music, restricts teaching development, compromise class fluidity and in many cases musically fails to stimulate both the class and the Instructor. FIT2FITE provides a structured template (4s4) for technical development and musical interpretation that provides flexibility and alternative techniques and combinations to layer that template.

Music System: FIT2FITE is a Music based class. The sound system utilised must be able to reproduce sound in a clean and effective manner so that the class are stimulated by both the music and the sound quality. Advice can be provided by F2F HQ on appropriate systems free of charge.
