Exercising in the dark is typically a recipe for bruises. However, on one day of the year at the Denver Coliseum, the lights shut off, the music turns on, and the workout begins. OMG Fitness Concert decks out its guests in glow sticks, glow necklaces, and washable glow paint as they arrive on the floor, their bodies illuminated by black lights and the concert's vibrant displays.
This year, the festivities kick off with a glow-in-the-dark obstacle course. Bright tires, stairs, and other pieces of obtrusive terrain, all of which are in keeping with the theme "Neon Everything," stand between challengers and the finish line. Next is a LesMills Body Combat course led by onstage instructors. As they guide the group through strikes from martial arts such as tae kwan do and kickboxing, invigorating music follows the pace of the action. Lastly, a jungle-themed Zumba session teaches participants to groove to a celebratory cardio-dance routine. The event also hosts vendors of gym apparel and accessories, enabling visitors to bring home a more practical memento than a vial of their own forehead sweat.
