What if we said there was a workout that didn’t feel like a workout at all? There is, and it’s called 305 Fitness. Somewhat of a unicorn of the fitness world, this 55-minute black lit cardio dance party strikes that perfect balance between high intensity conditioning and having a total blast. Inspired by Miami nightlife, a live DJ spins in every class — but don’t let that fool you, it’s still one of the most physically demanding workouts you’ll try this Fall. Complete with interval training, dedicated arm and core work, and more, you’ll feel the burn for days. Even if there’s no 305 in your locale, just start a dance party of your own. All it takes is a good playlist, the right mindset, and some moves.
Dance is all about self expression, so your outfit options for this class are truly endless. What we will say, however, is that a good sports bra can go a long way when you’re doing so much jumping, twisting, and twirling. If you’re the more bold type, take a nod from the studio’s Miami theme and show up for class in an energy-boosting neon ensemble. But if your style is more minimalist, you may prefer to go the ballerina-inspired route by sporting subdued tones. Finally, your dancing shoes are a pair of breathable sneakers that provide support without any unnecessary weight or rigid structure.
