This was bound to happen as the craze of "twerking" takes over the youth of North America after the word "Twerk" officially gets added to Oxford Dictionary... oh and Miley Cyrus of course. This is what happens when you twerk without thinking ahead.
It's official, you can now get fit while having a freaking blast, Montreal. Twerk Fit classes are now being offered in Canada (for the very first time, allegedly). How exciting is this? Because we all want to move like Rihanna even if we don't like to admit to it.
Studio Taino invites everyone to try their body isolation and anti-cellulitis work out (a.k.a. the twerkout). Clients are asked not to be shy and explore the power of ABS and legs through the movements of their hips! Introduction class is lead by two twerk goddesses.
If you're wondering - yes, twerking does help you lose weight. In addition, it tones your abs, legs and butt muscles. Not to mention that it doesn't feel like an actual workout, but rather a fun performance. Just imagine being on stage or at a club dancing away to your favourite beats...? Doesn't that sound like a fun workout alternative? Of course it does.
In addition, the moves you learn in class might come in handy in other areas of life *wink wink*. Like teaching your girlfriends how to twerk, for example. You'll be the one who's got the moves among your friends... which basically puts you one step ahead of everyone else.
In case you're still not convinced about how much you need to take this class, watch this video:
We all remember how Miley Cyrus got seriously bad press for twerking on stage back in 2013. Turns out twerking is not as bad as you might think it is. If you look beyond the fact that it basically looks like dry humping, the rest is actually nothing but good news.
Let's look at the obvious first - girls who twerk are more fit. Not only are they more fit, but they're fit in all the right places. Twerking is one of the best exercises out there to shape your luscious booty, says Healthline. So if you want to have nice and round buns, you know what to do, girl!
In addition, according to Women's Health, twerking can burn more calories than a standard workout, i.e. over 1,000 cal in one hour. Not to mention that this kind of work-out is way more fun than usual cardio/weights exercises.
According to an Italian study, dancing can make you feel better about yourself and, generally, help you be happier. A bunch of patients recovering from surgery admitted that dancing made them feel more joyful than a regular gym workout or biking. Another Swedish study showed that young girls who dance have a higher self-esteem than those who don't.
Can twerking make you smarter though? Yes, it can. Dancing increases cognitive acuity at all ages, states the New England Journal of Medicine. In fact, dancing makes your mind more acute than reading, bicycling, swimming, doing crossword puzzles or playing golf does! In other words, if you have an exam you want to ace, for better results, twerk before taking it!
Here's a video that will have you hypnotized for a little while... these girls are obviously exceptionally smart, happy and fit!
Star Wars fans and haters alike will simply love the video below. A group of sharply dressed storm troopers (who look like they've stuffed their crotch guards, IMO) tear it up on the city streets, twerking like its nobody's business. Whoever said nerd don't have rhythm haven't seen these guys bust a move. For real, you'll be shocked by the intense precision of the seamless choreography, on par with the best music videos.
Miley Cyrus eat your heart out, these are the new queens of twerk.
Twerking Around The Ratchet Tree, can it possibly be a new tradition in the making? We can see it now, 20 years from now this video by YouTubers "Avery" will be looked back on as what started the most blasphemous of things to happen during the holidays. We on the other hand approve and so would Miley Cyrus. Check out the video below. Do you think it is great or do you hate?
