This past Thursday I completed Bucket List Goal #21 by attending the “Dance Party” workout class at the Oklahoma State University Colvin center. I’ve been wanting to branch out and attend more classes, and while this one was not completely “new” to me because I attended it once a year ago, it was new to two of my friends that attended as well. Three of us have been wanting to find a work out class to attend together and decided to try three different ones for three weeks in a row. Last week we tried Dance Party at 7:30pm, and the goal was to try Barre at 5:30 pm this week and Pop Pilates at 6:30pm the week after.
The thing is, Dance Party was amazing. It was a really intense workout that included cardio, abs, and legs; it was fun and encouraged us to be silly, and we loved it so much I think we will end up going to this class from now on. The timing is not great, as all three of us would prefer the 5:30pm class right after work, but the class is worth the inconvenience. It was a packed room with fun hip hop music, fun moves, and some sneakily incorporated squats and lunges. Within that class I logged over 4,000 steps on my fitbit, and increased my heart rate significantly! It also made for a good excuse to stretch and hit the sauna afterwards. As someone trying to get a consistent workout routine down, I am excited to see where this class (and other exercise classes) take us!
