9.30am every Saturday at Purley Sports Club
Created by Strictly stars Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite, together with champion swimmer Mark Foster, FitSteps® is a unique dance-fitness class that’s so much fun you don’t even realise you’re getting fit. It combines steps inspired by 12 of the most popular Latin and Ballroom dances with proven fitness techniques to create a fun, energetic workout that is achievable for everyone, no matter what age, gender or level of experience.
About Gemma – FitSteps Pioneer instructor and Ambassador
As a Level 2 Exercise To Music (ETM) instructor with a long-standing love of dance, in August 2013 I became a Pioneer instructor of FitSteps®. I launched the first class in Purley in October 2013, and have since not only taken the Flair 1 and 2 workshops but also been selected as an Ambassador for the programme. In 2016 I became licensed to teach FitSteps® FAB (For All Bodies).
I am committed to ongoing development, and have undertaken additional training in Latin and Ballroom to bring authenticity to my classes. I continue to work on my own artistry and fitness through a combination of classical ballet and conditioning exercises.
I am a member of FitPro and REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals). I am also qualified to teach DDMIX, the new dance-fitness programme from Darcey Bussell and Nathan Clarke, and PureStretch, a fun and flowing class designed to improve flexibility.
