So January flew by and the closest you got to your fitness resolutions was a marathon of Making a Murderer? Not to worry: There are still plenty of opportunities to break a sweat this February, whether you want to burn with your bae, your bestie or your bad self.
Zumba just keeps growing. The dance workout, which combines Latin music and dance styles, continues to take over studios and gyms.
When you get invited to take a class that's helped Bey and Solange get their bangin' bods -- you go. Or at least that's what I thought until I was midway through, sweating like a beast, tripping over my own feet, trying to keep up with the moves, regretting that decision.
Whenever I read about people who are in thrall to a dance craze, my world suddenly seems too small. Oh, to dance the mazurka until my footmen are forced to carry me home on a makeshift gurney at dawn; oh, to spurn a dinner invitation to Scott and Zelda's because I literally cannot stop doing the Charleston.
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater does more than just put on a good show; it offers many classes that are open to the public.
Keeping fit is a religion at the city's six hottest workouts. Try one--if you can get in.
The only "exercise" (and I put it in quotation marks because it doesn't feel like exercise) class to which I can be dragged sans the kicking and screaming is Zumba, at The Ailey Extension.
