In a case of what is old is new again, throwback workouts are hot, and the latest craze for helping people get into shape while having fun is TAProbics, a play on tap and aerobics created by actress and tap dancer Hillary Ayn Ryan, reports CBS Los Angeles.
“I always tell everyone, ‘For this hour, you just have this one hour to not think about anything, just have fun, listen to the music, move your body,” said Ryan, a tapper since she was a toddler. Clients can rent shoes for this workout; no tap experience is required.
“I love what it brings to everyone else, because I get emails from people saying, ‘Thank you! I had such a great time and I never laughed during a workout class before.’ To get emails after a workout class I think is pretty big,” Ryan said.
Classes are held at Evolution Studios, 4200 Lankershim Boulevard, North Hollywood. For more information on TAProbics, visit www.tapaholictapclasses.com. To see the story and a video report on the class, visit http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/09/20/tap-dance-and-aerobics-meet-in-a-fun-workout/.
