Dance Fit

  • What is Dance Fit?

Dance Fit is a fitness class with a dance element using easy to follow routines to up to date chart music. Dance Fit is a fun, high intensity, all over body workout incorporating dance moves as well as traditional aerobic exercises. 

 

  • Can Dance Fit help me lose weight and get fitter?

Most definitely. The key to burning calories is moving the whole body which is why dance is so effective as your doing just that. Some of my dance fit routines focus on cardio and others focus on toning legs, bums and tums!

 

“I recently started attending Dance Fit with Helen on the recommendation of a friend and thoroughly enjoy it. I’m already dropping weight and my fitness level has improved so much in a short space of time, which is vital to me as I’m on and off medications for an inflammatory disease. I already feel stronger and fitter. Love it!” Sam

 

  • Do I need to be any good at dancing?

No! The aim of the class is to turn exercise from a chore into something to look forward to. Does it matter if you end up on the wrong foot or go the wrong way? NO! Just keep moving, follow me and you’ll keep sweating which is the important bit! Just like hitting the dance floor at a party, you don’t have to be a trained dancer to do it.

 

“This is the only exercise I’ve ever stuck to. I’m in my forties, can’t dance and very unfit but I go every week. I’ve lost over a stone in weight and feel much better for it. It’s great fun – give it a try. Helen is fab, and we all have a good laugh together.” Steph

 

  • Do I need to be young and fit?

I get this question a lot! I have women in my classes who are in their teens, twenties, thirties, forties, fifties and sixties. Dance Fit is for all ages and the great thing is you can tailor the routines to your ability. You don’t have to be fit to start out, the idea is you will get fitter by coming to class!

 

“I was really nervous about going as I don’t have much confidence and thought I wouldn’t fit in! Now I look forward to going every week!! I would highly recommend” Fiona

 

  • How would you describe your classes?

If I were to describe my classes in a few words I would say fun, friendly, energetic, vibrant, and young at heart. At Dance Fit we definitely don’t take ourselves too seriously! Every class has a great sense of camaraderie and is full of lovely and supportive people. Everybody there has the same struggles and goals! Everybody is in the same boat and is there for the same reason – to get fitter, healthier and enjoy themselves. 

 

  • What are the benefits of dance compared to others forms of exercise?

We’ve all been to the gym and know that 10 minutes on one of the machines can feel like forever. It’s no wonder people fall out with such repetitive forms of exercise and lose interest in it all together. Dance Fit is more fun and more social, you can bring friends and make new friends. The benefits of dancing are well known:

 

  • Diminishes depression

  • Reduces Stress

  • Helps your heart

  • Improves flexibility

  • Boosts memory

  • Increases energy

  • Aids weight loss
