Get a 'Hair'-raising Broadway workout

July 1, 2009 3:20:36 PM PDT
It's the new way to work up a sweat with the stars of a hit Broadway revival. And it's quite a Hair-raising experience. Crunch has partnered with Broadway shows for nine years, and this summer, you can let your Hair down in class on Monday nights. It's an hour and a half workout inspired by the musical "Hair."

Six nights a week, Jackie Burns performs in the musical Hair. But on her off night, you might find her in a class at Crunch. It's part of the Broadway series, her musical is this summer's gym feature.

Which means you'll pedal along to the music you probably know. Expect to see some tie-dye in the class as students channel their inner peace. Once the bike ride portion is over, it's on to yoga. It's very 60s and very appropriate to the musical.

Three cast members lead the chanting portion. It's kind of like having your own personal mini musical.

And it's fun for the performers, because the class is set to the show's newly released soundtrack.

And it's cool for the students, who get to be up close to the Broadway performers. And they might just want to head to the Great White Way to see the revival that it's still very timely.

And one other plus, aside from the workout, is that at the end of the Hair class, they give away two free tickets to the show.

ABC7 viewers can try the class for free. Go to Crunch.com to print out a guest pass and see complete class schedules.
