The instructors at Pole Dance Moves motivate students to build muscle and burn fat, but unlike most gyms, each class comes with a sassy twist—in the form of exotic climbing, suspending, and spinning from free-standing platinum poles. Instructors tailor the fun, laid back lessons to accommodate beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of experience. For more individualized training, the studio hosts private sessions and group classes, ideal for bachelorette and birthday parties. Additionally, students can break out the red lipstick and corsets during burlesque and pinup parties. In the comfortable setting, ladies get together to channel the spirit of Betty Boop, which is usually done by hiring a psychic that draws good.
Like a trip to the all-you-can-dance buffet, Jazzercise incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, and air-busting kickboxing. In 60 minutes of class, participants of all ages and levels will benefit from improving their cardio, strength, and flexibility while burning off up to 500 calories and improving their chances of impressing Kevin Bacon at a celebrity dance-a-thon. Dancing with the Stars two-time champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise’s improvisational workouts, but clients won’t need her encyclopedic knowledge of flashy footwork and spirit-fingered dance moves to get the most out of each class. Those prone to first-class jitters can review the basic moves before their shimmy session.
East Valley Bootcamp challenges exercisers with an ever-changing workout routine, centered around moves that are easily adaptable to all levels of fitness. Health-centric trainers whittle the widths of coed pupils over four weeks, instilling motivation through group camaraderie and staged readings of the wartime speeches from Winston Churchill. Each outdoor class presents a new routine, but aspiring athletes can expect to face a myriad of styles incorporated, including weight training, circuit training, stretching, and military-inspired drills. Designed to prevent the body from adapting to the workout, the varied regimen helps students plow through the plateaus and muscle-blocking mesas that plague other traditional exercise programs.
