Rock your work-out like a star
Thursday 30 October 2008
Hands up who doesn't get some serious body- envy whilst watching the likes of Rihanna or Beyonce shake their super-toned booties in the latest music videos - Closer certainly does!
And it's no surprise that the Hip Hop beauties have figures that are simply to-die-for: all these strenuous dance routines make for an excellent top-to-toe work out.
Thanks to the brand-new Nike 'NU SOUL' Rockstar work out, now you can shape up like Queen B whilst learning some slick dance moves at the same time!
Launching at selected Virgin Active Health Clubs nationwide in November, participants will experience a work-out featuring moves based in the foundations of hip-hop: waving, popping, gliding, and b-boying. Other moves draw from tap and jazz dance and range from strong, smooth and sharp to match the soulful lyrics and funky beats.
The workout was created by Nike along with award winning female choreographers Cicely Bradley and Olisa Thompson, who have worked with leading names in the hip hop industry such as Missy Elliot and Eve, to build rhythmic coordination, muscular strength and cardio endurance in a fresh and innovative way.
The Nu Soul soundtrack mixes tracks of up-and-coming independent Hip Hop, Soul and R&B artists from New York and many of the tracks draw upon Motown, Soul and Classic R&B ,blending old school influences with modern beats and lyrics.
Best of all, you will have so much fun doing it you hardly notice you're actually working out! So if you are a bit of a dancefloor diva this one's for you - Closer loved it so much we have even been practising the moves at home! And we swear our bum looks almost looks like Beyonce's now...
