I'm really excited to have started the first SwingTrain class in Edinburgh!
SwingTrain is the brainchild of Scott Cupit, of Swing Patrol fame. Here's what the original press release says about it:
'SwingTrain is an elating exercise experience accompanied by the vintage vibes of swing, gospel, rhythm & blues and jazz – a marked difference to the electronica that accompanies the majority of cardio exercise classes.
The SwingTrain total body workouts are inclusive and suitable for all levels of fitness and coordination. No dance or fitness class experience is required whatsoever. SwingTrain fitness instructors lead participants through a series of fun, follow-along moves inspired by the vintage street dances of Charleston, lindy hop, and shag. The full body cardio workouts exercise legs, arms and core, as well as developing coordination and mental agility through memorable routines. Each SwingTrain session lasts for an hour, including warm-up and warm-down time.'
I'm having a break from Swing Train classes right now, but will keep you posted when they resume.
