‘I’ve Helped Thousands of Women Get in Shape—Here’s My Secret’

I’ve been a trainer for nearly a decade. I’ve taught everything—boot camp, TRX, indoor cycling (I’m a SoulCycle instructor, natch)—and yet I see the same problem in every setting: Women forget how to move.

Hear me out! It’s not that we’re not putting in the time running outside, lifting weights, or squatting at the gym; it’s that we’re not putting enough time into all the other movements outside of those fitness activities. We get stiff, physically and mentally, and our progress—building strength, losing weight—goes stagnant.

That’s why I love turning people on to dance. My own style, called Socanomics, is rooted in traditional Caribbean dance, which uses low-to-the-ground rhythmic movements that blast your core, legs, and butt. The beauty of Socanomics—and the conditioning workouts I’ve created around it on my High-Intensity Dance Cardio DVD—is that it trains your body to move in multiple planes of motion, not just the up-and-down and forward-and-backward orbits we’re used to. Even if you aren’t a great dancer, this 360-degree movement boosts stability and mobility in your hips, setting you up for a strong, sculpted booty and flat, functional abs.

And the best part is, the routines featured on High-Intensity Dance Cardio are so fun and addictive, you won’t even feel like you’re working out. Since you’re always moving, always matching the beat and energy of the music (think Reggaeton), you’ll burn calories and blast fat without wanting to stop. I’m serious! It’s actually addictive. You see, with dance, there is always room for refinement, for gracefulness, if you will. You’ll find yourself itching to do the routines from High-Intensity Dance Cardio again and again until the muscle memory takes over and, as cheesy as it sounds, you’re moving straight from the heart.

I encourage even the choreo-challenged to give Socanomics a shot, because those are the ladies who need it most. When you’re comfortable in your body—something that comes from feeling your body move, feeling it come to life—you gain a type of confidence that nothing can touch.
