WORKOUTS I LOVED THIS MONTH
Didn’t get to many new class this month. I have to get better at this this year - there are so many new classes popping up and...gotta get on it! I don’t make resolutions really - I would say that I set goals for myself. One of my goals for this year is to dance more - it makes me extremely happy so I am gonna do it more! So here goes:
NW Dance - Nicole Winhoffer
Location: 440 Studios - 151 West 26th Street
Location Perks: Convienient to a few trains. A few good eating places close by. Also if you wanna double up on the exercise for the day Barry’s Bootcamp is across the street (Hey sounds like a good ass combo to me!)
Amenities: Bathroom and vending machine and they provide towels
Cost: $30/class and packages offered.
On her website she says:
“I WANT PEOPLE TO MOVE, TO BE FREE, TO LOOK THEIR BEST, TO FEEL THEIR BEST…I WANT TO INSPIRE THEM. THIS IS MY PURPOSE”
Just reading that was enough for me - SOLD!!! I am all about it. I walk into class and I am greeted by the woman who takes attendance - asks my name, tells me hers and tell me to enjoy. Then Nicole comes over to me and does exactly the same. I think sometimes teachers don’t realize what it feels like to be acknowledged when you are in a group fitness class - it feels wonderful. She turns on the music and all of a sudden the energy in the room went to a place that I absolutely loved. I got lost in the music, the moves and totally let go! Everything about it felt right. I am not a dancer by any means so its nice to feel like you are able. She broke down the moves several times, gave us imagery to help us with certain moves and all the while interjected so many postive phrases to get us to loosen up and move freely. I walked in with a smile just knowing that I was about to take a dance class and left with a smile because I felt absolutely amazing.
