Stepilicious isn’t your mom’s step class!”
We all get in our routines of taking the same group fitness classes, at the same times every week. Last week, I decided to switch it up a bit and look for something new. While looking at the Group Fitness Schedule, one class caught my eye.. Stepilicious!
I have to admit, I was a little nervous about what I was getting myself into. But after speaking with the instructor, Emmy Richards, I soon realized I was in for an hour of fun and calorie burning too.
“Stepilicious isn’t your mom’s step class! With fun and sassy dance moves like the Britney, Flamingo and Sexy Salsa, you’ll shake your way into shape! Easy to master choreography and dance club music mixes make this class an exciting and challenging cardio workout,” said Emmy.
Don’t be afraid if you don’t have any dance experience. First, Emmy starts the one-hour class by teaching you the basic step moves. Gradually, arm motions are incorporated in, then the amount of dance moves multiplies and before you know it you have an entire step routine going in the blink of an eye.
My favorite move was the Britney.. A little take off of our favorite pop-star Britney Spears. And of course who doesn’t love doing the Cha-Cha? When you’re having fun dancing to your favorite music, you don’t even realize that you’re getting a workout too. But don’t worry you’ll leave the class in a sweat, feeling energized and ready to take on the rest of the week.
“I hope to see everyone next Wednesday at Stepilicious- just step up, and shake it!” said Emmy.
Stepilicious is held every Wednesday at 5:30pm in the Group Fitness Room.
With that in mind, I would also like to mention a program with an awesome cause. Pilates 4 Pink! Come out on October 11th from 5:30 – 6:45 pm and 7:00 – 8:15 pm in the Multipurpose room of the RAC. If you have questions please visit : http://services.georgiasouthern.edu/cri/fitness/pilatesForPink
