Rachel Vickhouse and Chelsea Mozel were searching for a way to get back to their pre-baby shape after kids. As avid hip hop lovers, they didn’t just want to get fit again, they wanted to make it fun. So they launched SWERK, a newest dance fitness routine.
“Our upbeat routines are paired with the hottest pop and hip hop songs to make you sweat, work, and twerk your way to weight loss and toned bodies,” says Mozel. “SWERK focuses on slimming your core and rounding your glutes while building your confidence and self-esteem!”
The two were inspired to launch SWERK through their love of dance and hip hop music. “We channeled our inner college club nights and feelings of letting loose and really getting down in a format that is easy and fun to follow,” explains Vickhouse.
The routines include a hint of high intensity interval training that’s developed into the playlists they use in order to help maximize your workout experience and burn calories.
SWERK isn’t just any group fitness class, the duo says, adding that it is an experience. “It’s an hour of kid-free, judgement-free, me time while reliving the glory days,” says Mozel. “We pride ourselves on providing an environment that will make you feel good about working out, and make you excited to keep doing it!”
The two say their ultimate goal is to help you build your confidence while building and shaping your booty as well.
SWERK classes vary by price depending on where you are attending, with most drop-in rates ranging between $5 and $10. To sign up or find a class near you, visit www.sweatworktwerk.com.
When you attend a SWERK class, you’ll sweat, laugh, and shake things you’ve never shaken before. Vickhouse says that students will get a high cardio workout without realizing how many calories they burn. She also prides SWERK as a place where everyone is welcome. “You will never feel out of place and you will make new friends,” she says. “It’s honestly booty-ful!”
SWERK is currently located in six different cities around the Dayton and Cincinnati areas, with the main hub being located at MVP Dance Fit in Kettering.
Vickhouse and Mozel hope to continue expanding SWERK throughout 2017. They’re currently certifying new instructors in order to offer SWERK at gyms, studios, events, and fundraisers throughout the area. “We are working hard to build our SWERK Squad so we can deliver the exact same sweaty, awesome experience all over the world,” says Mozel.
