FitReserve Studio Spotlight: DanceBody
“You don’t have to be a dancer to look like one,” say the folks at DanceBody, a workout created by dancers but meant for everybody. These cardio dance classes fit high intensity intervals and body resistance muscle sculpting exercises into their incredibly fun dance routines, which help you build up to that enviable dancer’s bod. Don’t let your inability to Whip and Nae Nae (or even the fact that you have no idea what that term means) keep you from hitting up one of these classes, which are held all over the city. This high-energy class will have you shaking, sweating, and smiling your way into shape!
