The Press Box: BollyX Fitness
Though BollyX Fitness’ total-body workout is designed to shred calories, it’s just as much about having fun. After all, the workouts consist of the very same moves that bring to life Bollywood’s vivacious dance numbers. And you can be sure that they’re the right moves, because the program was designed by Bollywood-fitness choreographers Mayuri Bhandari and Shahil Patel, whose Bollywood dance team wowed the America’s Got Talent judges in 2009. Read on to see what others are saying about the infectious dance-fitness workout:
“Between the upbeat energy of the class, the motivating instructor, the unique fusion of cultures and music, it’s easy to forget you’re getting a great workout.” — Boston magazine
“Dance to the hottest music from around the world with BollyX, inspired by the energetic vibes of India and Bollywood.” — American Fitness magazine
“ … the instructors assure newbies that ‘no prior dance experience or coordination is required — just a positive attitude and a willingness to try something new.’ So, even those of us with two left feet can find common ground and burn some calories all in the name of dance.” — Refinery 29
