“So we’re just going to run through a simple combination and then put it to some music, ok?”
It was more of a statement rather than a question as the instructor turned around and started counting us in, but yes, that seemed simple enough.
However, what started off as a simple two-step and turn combination quickly turned in to body-popping and twerking and it wasn’t long before I discovered that I was no Miley Cyrus.
In a bid to keep myself entertained whilst on doctors’ orders to rest a running injury I made the impulsive decision that I was going to try something new every week. This was week one and my first Street Fit class.
I’ve long been envious of people who can street dance so when I saw that there was a class at the new gym I had joined it seemed like the perfect excuse to give it a go.
With classes across the country I was excited to try it and if you love dancing then I would definitely suggest giving this class a go if you’re looking for fun ways to get fit.
The instructor walked us through the choreography and then chose Beyonce’s Crazy In Love to put the steps to music. Fast paced, it definitely requires concentration but once we had run through it a few times we were looking like a ready-made street dance crew…kind of.
Because it’s such a fun workout, for me it actually felt like I wasn’t working-out, which if you’re like me and sometimes struggle to motivate yourself to get to the gym, is perfect. It offers all the benefits of a good cardio work out, toning and of course having fun. I wasn’t achey the next day which was a bonus and if anything it even fuelled my desire to have proper street dance lessons.
