Punk Rock Aerobics in Ohio

Forget the legwarmers! In Buckeye Country, aerobics get a punk makeover.

If gettin’ physical makes you want to be sedated, try punk rock aerobics! Last night, Surly Girl Saloon in Columbus, Ohio, hosted its weekly class where attendees pogoed away to a jukebox rotten with classic punk. The session was devoid of fitness freaks (as evidenced by the frequent smoke breaks), and spontaneous sing-a-longs helped put the clampdown on caloric intake. Now bend! And stretch! And gabba-gabba-hey! The lesson learned at last night’s class: You don’t need a needle in your arm in the Chelsea Hotel to lose weight. SILAS RUPPE

We asked: What’s so punk rock about these aerobics? COMMENT
