Adult Dance Fitness
FitSteps® is the first dance fusion of its kind. It blends the elegant movements of Ballroom and the up-tempo pace of Latin dances, with a series of tried and tested fitness methods into a simple, easy to follow class. It works, tones, and sculpts the whole body. Just one 45 minute session can burn up to a staggering 700 calories. It's a dance fitness programme that is "so much fun, you don’t even realise you’re getting fit!"
The energetic classes combine interval training through a series of dance moves from the Jive, Cha Cha Cha, and Samba. They keep the heart rate raised with a range of slower movements and postures from the Waltz and the Rumba that use muscular strength to tone the torso, arms, and legs. This creates a unique series of movements that when grouped together have the greatest effect on the body.
The dances are broken down into easily learnable sections. Each section can be delivered at varying levels of effort, making it suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
FitSteps® came to life in 2013 as the result of a collaboration between two of the UK’s most famous ballroom dancers, Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite, and British Olympic swimmer and World Record holder, Mark Foster, when they all took part in the hugely popular BBC show "Strictly Come Dancing".
The important point to note is the distinction between the plethora of dance classes that exist and FitSteps®: a fitness class, delivered through dance. So, our emphasis is on helping people towards their fitness goals. We structure the classes to deliver real, measurable, fitness results.
