Taboo Fitness’s team of trainers empowers ladies of all body types to shimmy and shake their inner sexy to the surface during all-girl aerobic sessions. Classes like Quick and Dirty pack a routine-free cardio set into a 60-minute block of sultry moves and carefree littering designed to strengthen and tone. Ladies can partake in Pussycat Doll cardio classes by donning their celebrity heels for a burlesque-style workout inspired by the popular singing group or sashay through a set of easy to follow Latin dance moves in a Zumba session. During the course of their 12 visits, patrons attend three coaching sessions to zone in on fitness goals and nurture accountability with regular check-ins and stern looks from high-school principals.
To complement newly tightened and toned physiques, the package also lavishes guests with a hair-styling session performed by stage and wedding makeover artist Jenny Rhodes. While their ‘dos undergo a voguish transformation, Jenny will advise on future cuts, colouring options, and the best portable fans for maintaining that wind-blown look.
Moving in a straight line across Taboo Fitness’s studio space that’s studded with floor-to-ceiling poles might seem difficult, but that’s just because the instructors haven’t started teaching any moves yet. Minutes into class, instructors with nicknames such as JRock, B, and Ash encourage students to perform twirls, lifts, and slides, strengthening limbs to the rhythm of upbeat music. They supplement the pole-dance workout with burlesque-inspired cardio classes such as Pussycat Dolls—titled after the pop stars—or Quick and Dirty, which is named after Clint Eastwood’s burlesque routine.
