Burlexercise, a medium to high intensity burlesque-inspired class, is the brain child of both Katie Hardwickie and Sarah Lou Buckle (both professional dancers at London West End), and is said to target your whole body. The class commences with cardio-blasting workout that combines showgirl dance moves, and continues with strength and resistance workout using the weighted boas (2kg each). The great music, fun atmosphere and showgirl sassiness promise a class that is energising and entertaining as well as a good workout!   Fellow Sisters, ditch your shyness (stop practising showgirls move in the comfort of room!), and shake your booty with Burlexercise in the New Year!

[Calories Torch- O Meter]: 600 calories per hour

[Compatibility Meter]: For those who want to avoid “gymtimidation’’, or add a touch of glamour to your resistance training (imagine sassy feather weighted boas! Shrieks!)
