That's because the Hot Seat workout class combines jazz, hip-hop, and ballet dance moves that students perform behind, in front of, and even on top of a chair. This is just one of several adrenaline-boosting classes that add sultry twists to fitness routines. All the while, the instructors work to instill self esteem and confidence in women of all ages and body types.
