The first SwingTrain class in Edinburgh is up and running!
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 really excited to be involved in this venture and you can join me for classes at North Merchiston Club, 48 Watson Crescent, Edinburgh, EH11 1EP, between 6.30 and 7.30pm on Tuesdays for some swing-inspired fitness!
£6/£5 concessions per class or buy a 5-class card and save £1 per class (£25/£20). No need to book, just pay on the door. Come and join the fun.
