Beat your feet at Go-Go fitness

There is a new fitness class that will help you with your New Year’s resolution. It’s called Go-Go Fitness. Provided by GoGo Fitness LLC, this class is a comprehensive 60-minute, high cardio dance fitness workout that incorporates various dance styles and toning moves as well as the classic call and response of a live Go-Go music workout set.

Go-Go Fitness was the creation of Danette Tucker (a.k.a. Dani) in February 2012. Her reason for starting this class was to give families the opportunity to work out together. She wanted to create the same “Family Affair” that was the vision of the legendary Chuck Brown. Dani says, “Our classes are one hour long and provide a great cardio workout with several toning moves incorporated throughout each routine.”

Go-Go Fitness has 15 instructors and is offered at various recreation/community centers throughout the Washington Metropolitan area. It is now offered at our own Takoma Park Recreation Center on Saturdays at 12:00 noon.

Go-Go Fitness was just featured at the NBC4 Fitness Expo at the Washington Convention Center last month. It was the absolute hit of the event with more 200 people participating in the demonstration.

Dani has a very simple goal. She wants Go-Go Fitness to continue to be a “family affair” and to be an accepted genre in the music and dance/fitness industry. Don’t miss out on a fun way to get in shape. For more information, contact Takoma Park Recreation Center at 301-891-7289.
