Yes I’m Sexy, Yes I’m Fierce, Yes I Got This. YASSS!
Not only is this the ending phrase of an intense 60 minute dance cardio class, but this is also the motto of The Vixen Workout.
Now normally I’m never “crazy” about a workout. Heck, I hate working out. Dancing is my only form of cardio and with practice 3 days a week, I felt like that was all I needed (or was willing to do). Many of my other dance mates often have some workout routine outside of dance like spin, soul cycle, zumba, and/or weight training. I’ve tried it all, but didn’t feel the need to want to do it again and again.
One day my dance friends were talking about how much we love to twerk and if it was a workout, we’d sign up right away (especially me). So my curious (and often ADD) mind googled “twerking class in NYC”. First hit was the vixen workout. I begin to watch the video and was immediately ready to sign up!!! How could you resist the club like atmosphere where a room full of women (no men allowed) can let down, drop it low, forget work and personal life and transform into their diva alter-ego?!

The class is set like zumba where you learn routines. But this is no zumba honey, this is what we call “sophistaratchet”. With moves named after sexy and boss like phrases such as “riding ‘round and gettin it” or “booty call” Vixen has you sweating as you squat into position and twerk your butt off. Started by the ever so sexy and talented Janet Jones, the class is a mix of high intensity dance moves and slow sexy stretches choreographed to the music of Rick Ross, Beyonce, Pitbull, Britney and more. Not only can you burn up to 1000 calories a class, but you also leave with a confidence and sexiness like no other.
Needless to say we took that first class and have come back EVERY week. Many women come glammed up with sneaker heels (increases your workout by 40%) makeup and sexy leggings. The class encourages selfies post workout to show that even though you are sweaty, you can still be fierce and have that post workout glow. I encourage you to search the hashtag #vixenarmy to see the many women who pose after class.
I’ve been doing the class for about 3 months now and can tell the difference in my legs and ass! Beyonce legs coming this summer WHOOP WHOOP! You don’t have to be a dancer to do it and I’ve seen women from all shapes and ages come to twerk it out. Join the next class now at http://vixenworkout.com/new-york/.
