I just released one of the most fun dance warmups I’ve ever taught! You know the Cha Cha Slide? The song the DJ plays at every party? Well I thought it’d be fun to do a fitness version that turns every lyric into an exercise move!
Clap your hands = Plie Squat Clapping Combo
Slide to the left = Side Lunge L
Slide to the right = Side Lunge R
Take it back now y’all = Plie Squat 3 Walks
Back One hop this time = Jumping Jack
Right foot lets stomp = Forward Stepping
Lunge R Left foot lets stomp = Forward
Stepping Lunge L Cha cha real smooth = Cha Cha Cha
Hands on your knees= Squat Reach
Reverse= Disco Roll fwd and back
Invite your friends to try this with you…and PRACTICE. You know why?
Because I want you to try it live! POP Pilates is hosting a super fun POP Throwback Party with 24 Hour Fitness all over the US this month! This means you can head into your local 24 Hour Fitness on Saturday February 24th and take a POP Pilates class for FREE – and show off everything you learned in this video! It will be your first number!
If you want to see if your local 24 Hour Fitness is hosting a POP Throwback Party, just click here, type in your zip code, and find a POP Pilates Class scheduled on 2/24. If you see one, that’s a POP Throwback Party! There will be free POP scrunchies and POP chokers for those that come early! They are really cute…FYI…
Also, you may spot me and some of our POP Army instructors in the in-club posters wearing the costumes you see in the video! Hehehehe – so cool! I still can’t believe it sometimes.
Anyway, let me know what you think of the fitness version of the Cha Cha Slide!
