Channel your inner Beyoncé at Fit 6-7-8.

The one-hour sweat session – developed in Miami and available in Arizona only at Fit 6-7-8 – incorporates commercial choreography, Top 40 remixes and professional lighting and caters to fitness junkies and newcomers alike.

Those with stage fright don’t have to worry about the bright lights or a roaring audience – the low lighting allows them to dance like no one’s watching.

“Just show up to class in your sneakers and follow along,” Kahn says. “There’s no such things as mistakes, just accidental solos.”

Classes ($15 each) are held six days a week. The first class is free.
