NEW YORK, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Sports Clubs' (NYSC) top
fitness advisers will introduce a new way to burn calories and motivate
members to get into the political spirit with a new revolutionary election-
themed workout called Voterobics later this month. As the final preparations
for the Republican National Convention get underway, NYSC will offer members a
unique way to battle the added stress brought on by the Convention.
Led by NYSC's own 'George W. Bush' look-a-like, Voterobics will combine a
myriad of exercises such as boxing, step, basic calisthenics and strength and
conditioning. Workout stations will all have politically-skewed names such as
Balancing the Budget (finding your balance on a wobble board) step), Get On
Your Soapbox (step-ups onto a step), Swapping Parties (running laterally from
a cone marked Democrat to a cone marked Republican) and Voter TKO (taking a
jab at punching bags with Kerry/Bush masks). Select New York Sports Clubs,
Boston Sports Clubs, Washington Sports Clubs and Philadelphia Sports Clubs
will offer Voterobics beginning August 26 through the November elections. For
specific locations and schedules, please visit
Jessica Smith, a master trainer and class instructor at New York Sports
Clubs, developed the workout to popular songs which were previously used by
presidential hopefuls. Some campaign songs include: "Keep Cool and Keep
Coolidge," "Roosevelt the Cry" and Bill Clinton's 1992 pick "Don't Stop
(Thinking About Tomorrow)."
"It's a fun way for New Yorkers to mix up their usual workout routine and
get in better shape, while also giving some more thought to the upcoming
election," said Smith. "We made sure to keep the class bi-partisan - we don't
lean to the left or to the right, although we are moving to the left and the
right throughout the entire class."
As part of New York Sports Clubs' efforts to raise members' awareness and
to encourage voter turn out this November, Rock the Vote Registration Events
will coincide with Voterobics classes across the City.
