The idea which became FitSteps was born during the long, arduous dance training sessions that are an integral part of Britain’s most successful entertainment show, Strictly Come Dancing. FitSteps is the result of a collaboration between two of the UKs most famous ballroom dancers and Britain’s most successful swimmer, Mark Foster, so when you try the classes, you know that you will be getting fit and having lots of fun.
The FitSteps dance fitness programme is based around twelve of the most popular ballroom and Latin dances starting with the waltz, quickstep, jive and cha-cha. The dances have been designed to work for all age groups and all levels of ability and fitness.
Director Pete Farnell says, “FitSteps is a very young business and it’s a huge boost to us to be working alongside Champneys with its long-standing traditions and its total commitment to the health, fitness and wellbeing of its clients. We hope, over time, to make a significant
contribution to the health of the nation (and get them to have a load of fun while we’re at it) and Champneys is a perfect place for us to put our vision into action.”
Classes will be held at all Champneys resorts as part of the weekly activity schedule and therefore can be enjoyed on your visit or as a club member. Check out our Activity Schedules to find out the days FitSteps is being held for the health spa nearest to you.
