Growing up, I took dance lessons where I was known as ‘Wrong Way Megan’.
When everyone went left, I went right.
So when I was invited to try out the latest work-out craze in Toronto, Cheer Body by Brigitte Grenier, I was intimidated. But I love a challenge so I packed up my two left feet and went to get my ‘sweat on’ at the Byfield Dance Experience on Yonge Street.
The studio made me feel like I was in a scene from ‘Fame’. So New Yorky, I immediately wished I had brought my leg warmers.
Entering, I was greeted by Brigitte; her warm and incredibly friendly smile immediately let me know I was going to have a great time, coordination be damned!
First up, learning to pose like a Cheerleader and B’ was there to give me a little 1-on-1!
Now this girl is so cute you want to mash her up and put her on toast.
And that butt. Insane.
With a list of qualifications as long as your arm, she’s not only a brain in fitness but a legit pro! Her past speaks volumes as she was a part of the Argonauts Cheerleading team from 2006-2012, the Captain for four of those years.
Cheer Body’s mission is to energize and inspire in a supportive environment… and did I mention you get Pom Poms?!
A combination of Cheerleading, Dance, Yoga and Pilates, this workout leaves you dripping and wanting more. A great mix of cardio, strength, flexibility, stability and endurance.
I have never smiled so much while working out.
It is SO MUCH FUN!!
My two left feet wreaked havoc but it didn’t matter, I was too busy working out my ‘boom boom’ and shaking what my momma gave me.
I loved the energized group environment, the music, shaking it with abandon and how I felt when I left.
I also love how Cheer Body believes in teaming up with local, healthy-living-focused businesses, creating a community of healthy, happy women (and men ) who motivate each other in and out of the dance studio.
I am hooked.
And I have a few months until Argo try-outs, so I best get to WERK!
M. Fab rah rah!
