Clubbercise



Have you tried Clubbercise yet? Here Chrissy writes about her first Clubbercise class... “I'd heard people rave about Clubbercise (unintentional pun) so, as part of my latest attempt at being healthier, I decided to try out this new fitness class. A few people I know had tried it and said how much fun it was. Now before I go any further I think it's important to stress that I really don’t like fitness classes! To be honest, I've been a bit lazy of late my exercise regime has mostly consisted of walking the dog! So I was up for giving this new Clubbercise concept a shot - despite the fact I’m really, really uncoordinated! Arriving, I first noticed the hall was darkened and strobe lights were in play. Then we were given an impressive pair of glow sticks! I was expecting the ones you have to bend to activate, but these were posh LED ones with buttons to change the settings to different flashing modes - ­ imagine mini light sabres… except with wrist straps for health and safety reasons in case you got a bit overexcited! I had to fill in a form before the class to make sure we were fit and healthy to take the class. I'm certainly not fit or healthy but I have no conditions other than lazyitis, which wasn’t listed on the health form! We picked a space in the centre and it was great that it was dark as I didn’t feel self-conscious. It was good to see people of all shapes and sizes and a wide mix of ages too. The routines were aerobic ­based and easy to pick up ­so good for someone like me. What I loved about it was that even when they did the high impact bits you could take the easy route with the low impact. As well as a neon-­clad instructor, the glow sticks, disco lights and the dark is what made it different to your normal aerobics class. There was a great atmosphere and­ everyone seemed to be having fun… and that's coming from someone who doesn't really like aerobics! There were a few breaks to swig a bit of water and before I knew it we were slowing into the cool down track. The time passed quickly but the sweat and reddened face was proof I’d burned lots of calories. Overall it gets a big YES vote from me. I will definitely be heading back to Clubbercise again”
