Get Your Pom Poms and Get Fit!

November 8, 2013

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.

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!
