FitSteps dance fitness programme in Westbury

FITNESS instructors Debbie Bailey and Alison Jacobs  have teamed up to start a new class of FitSteps.

FitSteps takes place on Wednesday evenings at 7.15pm at Leigh Park Community Centre. In preparation they have recently undergone Fitsteps training with Ian Waite and Natalie Lowe from Strictly Come Dancing.

FitSteps® came to life in 2013 as the result of a collaboration between two of the UK’s most famous ballroom dancers and Britain’s most successful swimmer, Mark Foster!

They decided to mix the graceful steps of ballroom and the up tempo steps of the Latin dances together to create a really fun, energetic and effective way to stay fit and keep trim that would appeal to everyone, even if they couldn’t dance.

A dance fitness programme that is ‘so much fun you don’t even realise you’re getting fit!’

Debbie and Alison said, “FitSteps® is a fitness class, delivered through dance. So, the emphasis is on helping people towards fitness; structuring the classes to deliver real, measurable, fitness results.

“The first class that we’ve launched has elements of six dances: Jive, Cha Cha, Samba, Tango, Waltz and Quickstep. The dances are broken down into easily learnable sections and each section is capable of being delivered at varying levels of effort, accommodating people of varying levels of fitness.

“They are suitable for everyone and classes can be run for mixed age groups with ease. We’re proud to say that we have had people from all ages participating, all of whom loved the experience.”
