Midwest City, Okla. – Twice weekly, a group of co-workers gather for an hour of fun, laughter and sweat as they dance their way to fitness with instructor Emily Fisher. Fisher teaches the newest fitness sensation – Club Fitz. It’s an hour long class filled with hip hop style dancing to the newest music. Created by Edmond residents Lauren Fitzgerald and Kelsi Comer, Club Fitz is about teaching people to love themselves through dance. Most of the choreography is hip hop-Lauren’s specialty and Latin-Kelsi’s love. When Fisher teaches the class at Rose State, she carries a contagious energy that would pump up even the most hesitant of participants.
Donna Harper was searching for a fun class that would give her a great workout when Fisher began teaching the Hip Hop class at Rose State in August 2015. Harper, along with a group of her co-workers registered for the course and have now become regulars in the class. She takes the class for her overall wellness but it also serves as a way to relieve stress during the day. Harper is able to let her hair down and says if she does something goofy during class, she is able to “crack up laughing at herself.” She says, “It helps me personally to take this class during the week. It breaks the monotony for me and I come back to work energized.”
