Clubbers tend to burn between 500 and 600 calories per hour dancing non-stop – the same number you would during a high-impact aerobics class.
And now a team of music-mad exercise fanatics in London have combined the two, creating an aerobic rave workout that will leave you feeling energised the next day – as opposed to hungover.
Fitness Freak’s pop-up rave class is an intensely choreographed aerobic session with a live DJ spinning 90s dance classics. All you need to do is turn up in your finest neon gym gear clutching a handful of glo-sticks.

Nighttime clubbing is SO 2012… now it’s all about the morning rave
In a room in east London at 6.30am,
200 people are dancing to deep house club anthems, waving their arms
about, whooping and cheering, and generally getting pretty excited.
It’s a rave, yes, but not as you know them.

from a club to an underground bunker in which to continue their
slcohol-soaked merriment. These people are stone-cold sober, have just
woken up and are about to go to work.
Welcome to the world of early morning raving. Welcome to Morning Glory.
Morning Glory partygoers dance to music by The Loose Cannons from 6am in Shoreditch… before going to work
Wake up…. stretch…. put your trainers on…. head to Morning Glory for a pre-breakfast rave before going to work
The premise of the monthly event –
whose subhead is ‘rave your way into the day’ – is to turn clubbing on

everyone really started getting into the music.
‘It’s clubbing with a good, happy vibe, and none of that dark edge. People were genuinely happy.’

was free-form exercise. It came from the idea that people go to
aerobics or the gym in the morning, and this is like that without it
like clubbing, but instead of crawling out into the darkness afterwards
feeling horrible, you go to work feeling great. And instead of having a
beer you have coffee, a croissant and a massage.’
The next drop-in event is scheduled for Wednesday 4 September.
Is an early-morning rave exactly what you need to feel energised in the morning?
