Fitness That's "Strictly" Fun! Strictly Come Dancing's Natalie Lowe, Mark Foster, and Ian Waite had a great idea 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 described as " so much fun you don't even realise you are getting fit!"
Fitsteps is a fitness class, delivered through dance. So, the emphasis is on helping people towards fitness; structuring the class to deliver real, measurable, fitness results.
