Embrace your inner guru and hoop your way to happiness
Yes, it's prohibition and while Melbournians are cooking 'bone broth' and eating Uber Eats whilst watching Netflix - let's keep our midriffs stacked, love handles in check and avoid a muffin top. This is a six-week challenge and together we can build a six-pack and 'dance like no one is watching'!
Let's harness that latent energy and get active with these online alternative workouts to raise your endorphins and keep you laughing during captivity.

For the love of the 1980s, take a deep dive into the bowels of your wardrobe and resurrect those hot pink leg warmers, lycra tights and a headband and join Jane Fondle in your loungeroom for Booty Camp.
Release your inhibitions, bust out your booty and WERQ those curves with Jane Fondle's Werqouts and a can of beans to get COVID-fit.
For the more adventurous and 'Lovelorn in Lockdown', head to BottomsUp online dance classes which include 'Floor Flow', 'Bumps and Grinds', 'Russian Floor Work' and 'Burlexercise' every night of the week. Bust out your fishnets, fans, and feathers and make isolation sexy and outrageous like The Moulin Rouge in Paris at the turn of the century.
