Started in the UK in 2014, Clubbercise® has grown from a single class started by three friends to one of the biggest concepts to hit the fitness industry!.
As a result there are roughly 80,000 people taking regular classes. With more than 2,000 instructors across the UK, Europe and Asia.
Founder Claire Burlison Green says
“Like many people work and family commitments mean we don’t go clubbing as much as we used to and we like finding fun ways to keep fit. Therefore we decided to combined all of the highs of a night out with a healthy workout.”
So Clubbercise, a UK founded company, is changing the game in the fitness industry. By combining fitness and clubbing in one fun, easy-to-follow workout. Classes are a fusion of dance, toning and combat moves taught with nightclub-style lighting and flashing LED glow sticks. For those who love to dance the night away clubbing or are too shy to dance under the spotlight. The darkened room combined with pumping 90’s and recent smash hits, strip away all inhibition, offering a fun way to stay healthy and exercise.
Over Christmas drinks in 2012, Claire Burlison Green and her friends were discussing that there weren’t any dance fitness classes that played the kind of music enjoyed in clubs on a night out. Always looking for a creative way to keep fit, Claire and her friends started putting together routines and playlists. Their ‘healthy clubbing’ classes started in mid-2013 and in 2014, Clubbercise training officially launched in the UK. Clubbercise rapidly became popular and within three years over 2,000 instructors from gyms, health clubs and dance studios were trained. In 2016 Clubbercise was introduced to Virgin Active clubs in Thailand and Singapore.
Arriving in Australia
In 2018, Clubbercise classes will be sweeping the nation with the first Sydney training course delivered on 26th November at Virgin Active Frenchs Forest. The UK Lead Master Trainer, Sonique Smith, travelled to Australia for the Sydney course. She was joined by Australia-based Master Trainer Jade Purdie. Together they trained fitness professionals from Virgin Active clubs, Fernwood Fitness gyms and freelancers.
Clubbercise is open to people of all ages, shapes and sizes. For those feeling disheartened after the Christmas holidays, Clubbercise is a great way to get back into the swing of things in the New Year.
