Get sweaty with Cheryl and Chardee.


It's time to meet Cheryl and Chardee.

Fitness queens. Aerobics enthusiasts. Wine addicts.

These two flirtatious and fun-loving ladies were born in the early 90s, but choose to live life like they're in the 80s.

We're talkin' bright tights, unflattering leotards and funky leg warmers.

When you step into their high-energy aerobics class, you're sure to get more than you bargained for. While they are sweating from dynamic dance routines, you'll be tearing up with laughter over their ridiculous antics and absurd tales.

Between high kicks, powerful thrusts and talk of camel toe, this lively duo will unveil the heartache and challenges of gaining fame in the aerobics industry. Cue: tragic story of Cheryl attending rehab to get over her grapevine-itis.

There's sure to be awkward moments. There's bound to be the occasion 'pause' for a sip of wine. Plus, there's guaranteed to be a mention of their ex-aerobics partner, Dallen, who enhanced his manly bits with a pair of socks.

Throughout the whole show, there will be an informative exploration of d-floor moves that are perfect to perform at Red Square or HQ. The 'washing machine' and 'chair' are my personal favourites. Though, they didn't go down so well when I performed them later on in the night. Cheryl and Chardee, please explain?

Mikayla Lynch and Alicia Norton, the performers behind the act, present an unordinary and relatable view to the world of fitness and health.

After I had left the Raj House and was 500 metres down Flinders street, I could still hear the women singing their hit theme song at the top of their lungs: "aerobics are really fun and good."

Wait... does that sentence even make sense?
