About this course

This FitstepsĀ® course in Gravesend has been designed for the active, older adult, but is open to anyone who would like to improve their fitness and health and enjoys group exercise classes.

You will learn dance-based exercise routines to a wide range of music. Lessons include a warm up and a combination of low impact aerobic work with muscle toning exercises and stretches to improve flexibility, stamina, co-ordination and posture.

You will need to be able to follow verbal instructions, observe and copy physical movements and use spatial awareness within a group. By the end of this course you should be able to:
- Perform dance-based strength and endurance exercises
- Locate muscle groups

You will need to be able to follow verbal instructions, observe and copy physical movements and use spatial awareness within a group. Although there is no specific work set outside of the class, students will gain most benefit if exercises are performed regularly and practised between classes

How will I be taught?

You will be taught by a qualified fitness instructor. Our teaching methods include demonstration, explanation, discussion and times for question and answer sessions. Your tutor will demonstrate movements and talk you through all exercises. You will be carefully observed to ensure that you are working safely. At the start of your course you will be asked to complete an Individual Learning Plan which includes your Initial Assessment of your own fitness levels and will be used by you and your tutors to reflect on and monitor your progress. Your tutor will also use this information to ensure that all of your personal goals are achieved and provide individual support where necessary. At the end of the course you and your tutor are asked to assess the progress you have made.
To assist us in providing a safe and healthy environment for you to exercise you will be asked to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire. Your progress will be monitored through a Learning record and your own personal learning diary or fitness log.
