Welcome to Dance Fitness Nutrition with Aimee Hurlston! This website will give you all the information you need about my classes and will guide you in working out which fitness program is right for you. I am also a certified Nutritional Therapist and available for consultations. Please contact me directly for further details regarding this.
I have always had a passion for dance and fitness and have worked as a qualified Fitness Instructor for over a decade, specialising in Zumba, their specialty programs STRONG by Zumba & Zumba Sentao, Jungle Body programs Konga
and Jagua and my own freestyle classes including Ikon, Seduto Fitness, Flexure, freestyle dance classes & weight resistance training. Every class is exciting, fun and full of energy - we have the sweat to prove it!
I aim to stay true to ZUMBA with all of my routines, however, with having over 30 years experience in dance; I can't help but add my own style and flavour to keep them fresh and unique. My Zumba classes are suitable for all abilities (believe me... my experience of instructing an adult male rugby team proved that it's not only dancers who can really wiggle their hips!) Classes are truly like a fitness party! You'll leave feeling energised and in the best of moods! These classes are a great way to socialise too and many of the ladies who started out on their own have made so many great new friends!
IKON is an exciting, vibrant and unique workout that combines various cardio and strength exercises from around the world including boxing, kick boxing, HIIT and floor based body conditioning exercises. The moves are simple and repetitive, allowing you to put more effort and energy into each track, increasing the workout intensity on the body which along with a healthy diet and lifestyle is more likely to produce desired results. Ikon is highly addictive with routines accompanied by an awesome ever-changing soundtrack - you'll never get bored in these classes!
WEIGHT RESISTANCE TRAINING Using free weights, this class will lead you through a series of exercises both standing and floor work to focus on creating tone and definition throughout the body. The class is low impact and in addition you'll be accompanied by an awesome 80s soundtrack! This class has produced some fantastic results and has a brilliant atmosphere - not quite as much grunting as you'll find in the gym though!
SEDUTO® FITNESS is a program I designed to improve your overall strength and muscle tone. Combining chair and mat work, you will use your body weight as resistance and work through a series of routines to an awesome soundtrack! This class is low impact and is suitable for a variety of fitness levels.
FLEXURE is a program I designed to strengthen the body and mind by using routines to promote improved flexibility, balance, mobility, posture and wellbeing. Combining both dynamic and static stretches with elements of dance delivered to a calming eclectic playlist, this class will not only help you feel energised but feedback from class members has already shown that they have improved range of movement and reduced pain in joints and muscles. The routines are simple and easy to follow so that you can benefit from your time in class and focus on improving your technique and learning to breathe through the movements. Suitable for a variety of fitness abilities.
STRONG by Zumba is a unique workout that combines your favourite Zumba rhythms with strength, toning and conditioning choreography designed to improve your stamina, physique and overall well-being! This program is completely different to any body conditioning class out there, as the music was created around the steps, not the other way round! This means you'll get the most out of this class, with the movements fluid, effective and easy to follow! This class isn't on the timetable at the moment but if you are interested in a similar workout, then take a look at IKON!
LATIN & BALLROOM FITNESS uses the basic steps of dances including the waltz, jive, cha cha cha, samba, salsa, tango & paso doble to create a dance-fitness workout that's easy to follow and fun to take part in! The awesome soundtrack will take you through decades of great music and will leave you smiling from ear to ear (and a little sweaty too!)
FREESTYLE DANCE CLASSES are great fun! If you have always wanted to learn your favourite routines to music videos from the 90s to now, or there's a song on the radio you just have to move to, then this is the class for you! My dance classes will teach you a mixture of routines that are featured in pop videos and dances I have choreographed myself. No experience is required! Try no to take yourself too seriously and enjoy being a back up dancer for some of your favourite artists! Recently we have danced with NSYNC, The Backstreet Boys, Little Mix and Britney Spears! This class isn't currently on the timetable but will feature throughout the year!
Whether you are just discovering fitness classes or you're an established addict, my classes are for you! The video below will give you a taster of my classes in action!
