aboutBallet Blast

“I have drawn from my wonderful ballet education, training and working alongside some of the best athletes in the world to create a workout that sculpts the strong and supple body of a ballerina”

– Sassy, Founder of Ballet Blast by Sassy

Ballet Blast makes the ballerina physique accessible to all, fusing strength and conditioning training with ballet principles. Unlike many fitness classes that feel like you’re clenching and shortening the body to feel the effect, this whole-body approach to movement uses your body as resistance to burn fat and create long, lean, sculpted muscle.

The Ballet Blast online studio is designed to make your training accessible wherever you are, streamed directly to your device. With 10-15 minute targeted workouts for you to pair up and create a powerful program for yourself.

about Sassy

Sassy (Saskia) Gregson-Williams is a professionally trained ballerina and qualified personal trainer. She founded the award winning online Health & Fitness website Naturally Sassy and released her debut cookbook published by Penguin-Random House in August 2015.

Sassy created Ballet Blast after a recurring injury left her spending more time on the physio bed than on stage. It was then that she started to unknowingly fuse classical ballet with strength and cardio work in an attempt to create a powerful program for her recovery. She started working through these routines on a daily basis, and saw amazing physical results in her own body, which became as lean training 1 hour a day with Ballet Blast as it had been with 6 hours of daily dancing. Her friends and co-workers clocked onto this, and she started to teach them too; It was a hit. Sassy knew this method could go far beyond the studio walls, as she started to train a variety of diverse clients; Women with office jobs, full time mums, elite athletes – all with different goals and equal success. She hung up her pointe shoes, and Ballet Blast by Sassy was born!

Sassy continues to run Naturally Sassy and develop Ballet Blast worldwide.
