Possibly one of the most random to date, tonight’s GoodGym Brent consisted of…….. Running through dark parks, furious hip wiggling, booty shaking, burpees, jump squats, swagger and lots of sweat!!!!

Thanking the universe for one of the mildest nights of the year so far, the team set off into the night, Hot Footing it to our new friends Roundwood Youth Centre who were eagerly awaiting our arrival.

Our tango-tastic task this eve was to lead a Latin flavor dance class for the Down Syndrome Community Youth Group, who had recently lost their funding to have an instructor.

Dusting off her old aerobics instructor’s moves Brent lead Ellie stuck on the tunes and led from the front. Leaving egos at the door, every single GoodGymer got totally stuck in and gave it everything they had, twerking, twisting, spinning and shimmying, BUTT it was a proud moment when the synchronised booty shake was achieved.

After 30mins of Zumba fit and the team are Hot to Trot. Running through the dark , Adam, Irwin and Ravi the group bodyguards bringing up the rear, while flying the flag for International Women's day (all be it a day late), Claire and Laura showing us how it's done, storming up the hills for tempo sprints home.

Arriving back at Willesden Ellie has one more treat in store for the gang……. 30 second circuit challenge, 3 rounds for time!!! Burpees, speed-bounce, jump squats, tricep dips. No complaints just grit and hardcore determination.

GoodGym Brent transformed from Shakira to Schwarzenegger in 30 seconds flat.

An evening of twerks, hurts and definitely a lot of laughs, this is GoodGym Brent signing off – “hasta la vista baby”
