New street style dancing classes in Tamworth
New street style dancing classes are going down a storm at the Fitness Junction in Tamworth, where people are krumping their way to fitness without even realising it.
The new street style dancing sessions with Helen Martin provide all the benefits of intensive interval training, but with lots of fun, laughter and music thrown in for a great overall workout.
Helen is currently running a series of 30-minute taster sessions to give people a flavour of dancefit, before a full one-hour set is added to the amazing timetable of group gym classes at the Fitness Junction.
Dancefit classes open to non-members
While existing members of the Fitness Junction can take advantage of the new classes as part of their membership packages, everyone is invited to join the party. The street style dancing sessions are also open to non-members at a cost of £7 per session, to enable as many people as possible to enjoy this fun workout set in one of the best alternative gyms in Tamworth.
Helen said: “We all know that interval training is considered the best kind of exercise to get results and that’s exactly what dance is. However, it has so many other benefits thrown in. We get to enjoy music, embrace creativity, laugh, smile and generally have a great time. You will work out without even realising you’re working out.
“No experience is required. As long as you have a heartbeat, you have rhythm. There’s no need to feel self-conscious or worry that I will have you spinning on your head! We all work together and everyone’s welcome. You just have to embrace your inner child!”
