Too tired to get up on Sunday morning because you went too hard on Saturday night? Not for the fitness lovers and party rockers who gathered this past Sunday morning at the Denver Coliseum for the 3rd annual OMG! Fitness Concert. Dressed in neon and white, participants were eager to be decorated in glow sticks and body paint before heading into the glow in the dark arena to work on their fitness.
Weekend warriors had the opportunity to break a sweat doing: the fitness challenge obstacle course, Les Mills body combat, or Zumba events. Led by some of the best instructors in Colorado (and nationally) OMG! did not disappoint. Whether you had a spot right up front or in the back, dozens of instructors spread out throughout the venue to lead enthusiastic participants in the guided exercise routines.
The fun did not die down during intermissions between workouts. On stage entertainment was provided by Global DJ Academy, break-dancers from School of Breaking, and pole routines by the lovely ladies of Tease Studio. The whole event had the feel of a really great club atmosphere.
I am so glad that I stuck around for Zumba. With strobe lights and some of the best DJ’ing I have ever heard – it felt like I was at the largest club in the world getting my groove on. The music, strobe lights, and energy in the venue was contagious – 90 minutes of Zumba flew by in the blink of an eye.
Being the nocturnal twin of summer’s Fitness on the Rocks event – I knew that vendors would not disappoint either. Samples of some of Colorado’s best health and fitness products lined the grounds.
Although around 2,000 people came out to the event, the hope is that next year hosting it on a Friday night will bump up participation even more.
OMG! that fitness concert was awesome…literally.
