  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Stripping to be thin

The growing trend at select fitness centers is for members to not only shed pounds, but also shed clothes.

Exercising and taking off clothing are usually not put together, but with the introduction of strip aerobics, it fits hand and hand.

Strip aerobics is a new fitness class that teaches the basic moves of stripping, which creates a workout of sexy dance moves.

The suggestive workout mostly focuses on movement of the hips and complete body rolls.

To resemble stripping even more, participants are encouraged to use a stripper pole while taking the class.

Along with stripping and dancing, this trendy class does combine essential aerobic elements.

It adheres to fitness guidelines by following the proper format of a short warm-up, creative workout and relaxing cool-down.

This break-through class gets people in shape while improving their private sex life and confidence.

Some individuals may get the wrong impression when the word strip is used, but according to the CHealth webpage, this workout class does not promote or accept nudity.

Although, instructors do encourage participants to dress in layers, in order to take off outer articles of clothing during the workout.

Because this class is new to the exercise market, it is mostly offered in big cities such as Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

With this in mind, it may be a while before the fad hits the small college town of Bowling Green, Ohio.

Dana McCaw, head aerobic instructor at Bowling Green State University (BGSU), said, “Strip aerobics may be too racy for a college campus to offer, but we are not opposed to something of a similar nature.”

When asked about the new workout, Jenna Perrotto, a BGSU student, was also skeptical of strip aerobics coming to BGSU campus.

Perrotto said, “Stripping while exercising wouldn’t fly with the University.” She went on and said, “It’s a shame that it isn’t offered though; a lot of girls would take it and even more boys would watch it.”

In the BGSU group exercise program, the most similar class to strip aerobics is called Funk Aerobics, a dance-based class incorporating rhythmic limbering, dynamic stretches and hip-hop chorography.

Even though BGSU does not have strip aerobics, the group exercise program is willing to try new, trendy classes.

Starting this January, the BGSU aerobic instructors are adding a new class called Bootcamp Express.

The key components for this class include agility, balance, stability, endurance and power training.

In regards to this new class, Cathy Swick, associated director at the BGSU recreational center, said, “This new class will focus on conditioning drills that provide students with a greater variety in their training and a new choice in workouts.”

However, if Bootcamp Express is not exciting enough for some individual, it is possible to do strip aerobics, regardless of where one may live.

This exercise trend now offers DVDs, making it possible to join the craze at home. This option is also ideal for individuals who are too shy to attend an actual strip aerobics class.

Carmen Electra, an entertainer, has her own strip-workout system called Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease.

With help from fitness expert Michael Carson and chorographer Robin Antin, Electra has created a five-disk exercise collection.

The set, including Aerobic Striptease, Fit to Strip, Advanced Aerobic Striptease, The Lap Dance and Hip Hop, is available to order at

According to the website, “It is the hot, new workout that’s sweeping the nation.”
