What is Funkfit?

FunkFit is a new dance fitness class, where groovin’ and dancing to uplifting Funk, Soul, Disco and Motown tunes will get you fit! The class is suitable for all ages and abilities and there are no choreographies to learn. Groove to timeless classics and party to fresh new sounds. You just have to follow the teacher (Funkmaster)! Songs you grew up with or used to go clubbing to, will have you groovin’, sweating, singing along and having a great time. This is a class where dancing is the priority and through that you will find an improvement in your fitness, stamina, strength and coordination. Above all, it will bring happiness to your soul!


All classes are drop in. No need to book.

Frequently asked questions?

I’ve never done FunkFit before. Can I join your classes?

Yes, our classes are suitable for all abilities and fitness levels.

Do you do trial sessions?

No. Unfortunately we do not offer free trials but we will guarantee that you will LOVE your first session!

Do I need to be fit?

No. You can take the class as easy or as hard as you want depending on your fitness levels. They will improve as you attend more FunkFit classes.

How many calories will I burn in a FunkFit class?

The number of calories each person burns per class varies. Depending on your body parameters (type, composition, intensity, range of motion), you can burn hundreds of calories per class.

How long does a class last?

FunkFit classes usually last an hour, including a warm up, stretching and a cool down at the end at the class.

Can children do this class?

Due to health and safety reasons, it is recommended that only children over 16 years take part in a FunkFit class.

What do I wear?

Normal gym clothes and trainers – anything light and comfortable. Joggers, leggings, shorts with t-shirts or vests are all suitable. And don’t forget to bring some water!

What is suitable footwear?

To support ankles and to get the best experience from the class, we would highly recommend trainers i.e. cross training or aerobic style shoes. They provide the cushion and medial lateral support needed for side-to-side movements. They also have low traction rubber for easy sliding and turning. Please be careful with running shoes since they use a heavy tread on the bottom and are designed for forward movement.

Will I have fun?

As James Brown would say “HELL YEAH!!”
