‘IF YOU CAN CLAP IT, YOU CAN DANCE IT!’

– LOUIS VAN AMSTEL, LABLAST® CREATOR

LaBlast® Fitness, created by Emmy-nominated choreographer & DWTS pro, Louis van Amstel, is a dance fitness program based on all of the ballroom dances you see on Dancing with the Stars. It is partner-free, includes all components of fitness, and uses music from every era & genre.

Louis’ well-known saying is ‘if you can clap it, you can dance it’, and the LaBlast program is modeled exactly after that.  Clapping the timing of the dance is the first step in understanding the rhythms and being able to execute them correctly. From there, you choose your own intensity by adding optional plyometric movements, light weights, heavy weights, or simply keeping your workout low impact.  This is a program that is truly for every BODY at any stage of your fitness journey.

HERE’S WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE LABLAST® FITNESS PROGRAM!

My name is Laura Johnson, and I have been a Group Fitness Instructor and Group Fitness Manager for 30 years in the fitness industry. I am certified in numerous programs and have taught
every dance program that is currently on the market. After becoming certified by Louis Van Amstel in his dance fitness program “LaBlast®“, I now ONLY teach and endorse his dance fitness program. Louis and his team provide excellent instructor support. It has withstood the test of time which is crucial in a fitness facility.

I brought Louis’s program to Galaxy Fitness two years ago and it is a successful thriving class that continues to grow, prosper, and inspire members of all ages. LaBlast® is a top
producing dance fitness program that has proven to be a lucrative addition to our group fitness schedule. Men and women of all ages benefit from the classes.
Each time I finish I class I have participants who rush up to me and tell me how LaBlast® has made an impact on their lives. It is a program that grows with the progress of students. My ability to offer any genre of music and level of choreography inspires them on a physical as well as emotional level.

I would encourage every group fitness instructor/Gym owner to bring LaBlast® to their facility. They won’t be sorry. LaBlast® is simply “The Best”!

Thanks so much Louis for creating LaBlast® and for giving me something to help regain my confidence and love for dance. Before we met I had found myself getting older and that younger cuter teachers were getting the new students. Adding to that I was forced to leave competing. I felt so lost and depressed, put on weight and just really didn’t know where to go anymore. I attempted trying to do other dance fitness formats, but really hated it. Nothing about them filled my love for dance or even wanting to teach it. Louis, you and LaBlast® have helped me regain my love for teaching and dancing.

This had been the biggest confidence building program for me personally. Because the LaBlast teacher website has choreograph and songs for you to use in your class, I feel that I am not left on my own to figure it out all by myself. The teacher website also gives playlist which are invaluable!! Now I am given tools to help me teach each Lablast class with confidence! Also it feels like I am part of a family
