Scott Cupit, well-known Australian entrepreneur has launched SwingTrain in Australia which combines swing dancing with a vigorous, high-intensity, dance cardio exercise program, perfect for anyone interested keeping fit in a fun way.
SwingTrain was inspired by the global swing dance group Swing Patrol. With many people all over the world currently enjoying swing dancing, SwingTrain mixes this with swing moves and music to bring a whole new fitness trend to Australia.
SwingTrain is tipped to help the everyday Australian lose up to 500 calories in just one hour.
The exercise regime is entertaining and interactive with the first-rate instructors leading participants through a series of fun, flowing moves and interactive choreography guaranteed to provide sweat and smiles.
Providing a joyful mix of some of the classic dance moves like the Charleston, Swing, Gospel, Electro Swing and Hot Jazz – it delivers a brand new exciting fitness trend here in Australia that is already taking off across the country.
Targeting those that perhaps don’t typically attend the gym, a SwingTrain session that provides a total body workout with emphasis on legs, arms and core is something that people really enjoy and a workout that is a lot of fun and gets you fit.
“In the United Kingdom, swing dancing has really taken off with many people enjoying lessons with their partners or even just for fun on their weekends and this got me thinking, dance is probably some of the most physically exerting exercise we could ever do so why not utilise these fantastic swing moves to get people fit,” said Mr Cupit.
“We don’t want to scare anyone off, it is for all fitness levels and it’s just about having a fun time while exercising. Many participants have no idea quite how much exercise they are doing until we explain that you can burn up to 500 calories in just one session.
SwingTrain takes some of the individual dance steps of traditional swing and turns them into choreographed routines that are easy for anybody to jump in and follow.
Red Bull has voted SwingTrain one of the top ten fitness things to do in the UK and it’s hoped it will achieve the same rating in Australia.
