FitSteps® came to life in 2013 as the result of a collaboration between two of the UK’s most famous ballroom dancers and Britain’s most successful swimmer, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’s, Natalie Lowe, Ian Waite and World Champion Gold Medallist swimmer, Mark Foster.
They decided 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.
They created FitSteps® - the unique dance fitness programme that is ‘so much fun you don’t even realise you’re getting fit!’
It is the first time that classic Latin and Ballroom dances have been brought together with proven fitness techniques and principles to create not only a programme that can have extraordinarily wide appeal.
But one that also has the potential to make a real and lasting impact on the health of the nation.
