A BICESTER exercise class that was set up last year has received more support than expected.

Described as 'the new birthday party for seven year olds plus' , Clubbercise is a fitness class where people can do different levels of workouts to music in a darkened room while wearing bright neon clothes and face paint.

Wendy Foster, from Bicester, set up the class last July and is overwhelmed by the amount of people who are interested.

She said: "It was a lot of work to actually get the qualification and I never thought I would be putting on so many classes.

"There are some great quotes on my Facebook Clubbercise pages from people saying how it has changed their lives, given them confidence, got them out of the house, gained energy and lost weight."

Bicester Advertiser:

Ms Foster holds classes at Launton Village Hall on Mondays, the old St Edburg's School on Thursdays and Heyford Park Community Centre on Fridays.

She also holds 'Family Clubbercise' on Mondays at Launton Village Hall.

The instructor takes Clubbercise to Kenya in the summer which is where she used to volunteer.

She said: "Kenyans live on music so you can image their faces when I give them some glow sticks and we dance together."
