Swoove© Classes…..

Swoove Mumma

For “yummy mummies” who would like to do a gentler version of Swoove©.  The class will consist of a 10 minute warm up, a 25 minute workout & a 10 minute cool down.  The benefits are wonderful for both baby & mumma as the little one listens to the singing & soft whooping of his mumma.  Start bonding with your bump & keep fit at the same time.  Dads to be are very welcome as we love the lower dulcet tones in class, plus it’s a lovely thing to do with your partner….very memorable!  This is also a great place to meet new mums & dads that have similar interests to you.

Suitable for blooming mums up to 37 weeks pregnant, as long as your doctor has given you clearance to exercise.

Class duration: 45 minutes, term time only

Swoove baby

A perfect follow on from Swoove Mumma© & a lovely way to stay in touch with your friends and their babes.  If you are new to Swoove© then it’s a lovely way to meet new mums…..we are not clicky…..we love new faces!  The class will help you lose that dreaded baby weight right form the word go & consists of a 15 minute warm up, a 20 minute workout and a 10 minute cool down.  You can wear your babe in a sling if you feel more comfortable, but they are not a necessity.  Dads are encouraged to come & bond with their little bundle of newness! If you’re struggling with establishing a good sleep pattern this class will help relax your baby.  It also helps with bonding & creating a fun & playful environment for your little family.  Not only will you have 45 minutes to sing, gently whoop & move with your little one, but you can take these routines home to help with a calmer bedtime. The instructor will adapt the class for the older babies (as they get heavier!) Don’t worry you won’t end up with massive bicep muscles!!

If you’re a flying solo mum please speak to your instructor about bringing pre school age siblings to the class.  We appreciate child care is expensive so we’d like you to be able to bring them if you want to.

Suitable from birth – 1 year

There are two separate courses birth – 6 months & 6 months – 1 year.  Please contact your local instructor to find out more information.

Class duration: 45 minutes, term time only

Swoove X

This class is not for the faint hearted.  Swoove is extreme.  Weights are worn on the wrists (& on the ankles if you really want to push yourself).  The music is high energy & the whooping intense.  If you like insane fitness classes you’ll LOVE Swoove X©.  The first 10 minutes is spent warming up….then it goes mad!  The 40 minute workout will push you to the limits, but we guarantee it will fly by.  Tracks will include Maverick Sabre’s latest hit “Walk Into The Sun” & classic dance tracks from the likes of Prodigy & Fat Boy Slim.  You will then desperately want the 10 minute cool down to think about what you’ve just done!!!

This is Swoove Fitness founder Esther Featherstone’s favourite class…..in fact if you keep your eye out you may well share a sweaty Swoove moment with her!  Be sure to blog about it if you do……!

Suitable for the crazy folk/very fit (!)

The history behind Swoove©…..

One wintery afternoon…..

It was during one of Esther’s dance fitness classes on a wintery afternoon on Sunday 28th December 2014 when “singercise” was created. Whilst merrily dancing to Ricky Martin’s “Ay,ay,ay it’s christmas” she began singing the catchy lyrics. Being more out of puff than normal, she quickly realised that singing and dancing burnt more calories……and more importantly it was more fun. The class were beaming back at her (more than usual!) and from then on singing was firmly introduced to all classes.

During the January of 2015 Esther introduced numbers to her class that involved more singing just to gauge the response….everyone loved it.

She quickly realised that singing for the whole hour was nearly impossible however fit you are! She introduced whooping as this takes less puff, but is still makng you work harder than not vocalising at all.

February 2015:

On a road trip down to Eastbourne (to see her family) Esther was brainstorming ideas for the class name as “Singercise” wasn’t catchy enough. Suddenly she came up with the word “Swoove©” a combination of the words; sing, whoop & move.

March 2015:

The hook song “I like to Swoove it” is coined:

I like to sing it, sing it
I like to whoop it, whoop it
I like to move it, move it
You like to swoove it

I like to sing it, sing it
