DC yelpers know how to eat. DC yelpers know how to drink. But did you know that DC yelpers know how to shake lies from their hips, pop it like Pringles and then bring it down low?
Last Thursday, members of the DC Elite Squad were lucky enough to have the studios of Jordin's Paradise all to themselves for Socacize – the only workout in Canada and the U.S. with soca cardio jam, wind & tone, and a groovy stretch that is set to music fit for Carnival in Trinidad.
Decked in hip bangles and festive floral necklaces yelpers danced, screamed, moaned, grimaced and laughed while they broke a sweat and learned a few new dynamic soca dance moves, thanks to Jordin's Paradise soca dance instructor, Neki.
After burning nearly 1,000 calories during the 60 minute workout, yelpers were invited to hang out in the studios to gain back all of those calories with massive burritos, tortilla chips, salsa and salad courtesy of California Tortilla. As delicious as the food was, it may have been the first time in Yelp DC history that yelpers took their time eating.
A special thank you once again to Jordin's Paradise for making us work so hard while having so much fun that we all slept like babies at night and woke up sore enough to act like babies in the morning. Also, thanks to California Tortilla (Chinatown) for hooking us up with come delicious food, which went perfectly with our post workout glow. Special shout out to Keon D, resident Elite soca king as well as our photographer for the evening. You can check out more buzz on the event here!
Until next time, keep feeling the burn…
