We are thrilled to be launching Fit For The Floor to our Para Dance Sport athletes and instructors on Friday 19th February.
We’ve worked in collaboration with disabled and non-disabled practitioners in the fitness, wellbeing and Dance Sport industries to give athletes a unique programme for getting back into Para Dance Sport after a lengthy time away from training and competitions due to Coronavirus. This has been made possible with funding from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Designed to assist athletes in getting active and fit for when they can return to competition training, the super flexible online programme is made up of different mini-courses, including two body and mind fitness courses with videos for athletes to join in with. These videos are to help increase fitness, strength and stamina and also to help athletes focus, unwind and relax. Athletes can go back and do these videos, again and again, to get competition-ready!
To help athletes build their own training plan with these videos, there are also downloadable resources which can be used alongside the whole programme to create tailored journeys, track successes and keep a journal and food diary if athletes wish. And it doesn’t stop there! There will be courses on standard (ballroom), Latin and Freestyle dance specific training too, which will help athletes to be on top form when normal training and competitions resume!
Fit For The Floor is an evolving programme, which means courses will be released gradually and additional courses and modules will be added in the future, so there will be new modules to do or learn from. How exciting?!
Athletes and instructors have received emails on this exciting programme and are counting down to its launch at 10 AM on Friday 19th February. We hope you join us in wishing them well in getting Fit For The Floor!
