So Long 2015 and Hello 2016!

Happy New Year #teamwukkout!  I hope 2016 has gotten off to a great start for you all.  I wanted to take this time to thank you for all of the support you have shown me and Wukkout!® over this past year; your constant presence in class and at events means so much to me and I am truly grateful.  To Filecellia Sampson, Public Relations and Zahra Siddiqui, photographer, thank you for your dedication and talent.  To all of the ladies and gentlemen who consistently show up and jump up, there would be no "teamwukkout" without YOU.

This past year was an exciting one for us; we launched our online shop, participated in many events and several new partnerships were formed.  I'd like to give a special shout out to those who featured Wukkout!® in 2015 - ClassPass Queen, DNA Info and Womeneur - you guys are awesome!  To VROU, Emmy's Organics and Nothin' But, thank you for keeping us hydrated and eating healthy during our events.  To the studios/gyms who continue to host Wukkout!® classes - the Coney Island YMCA, MAC Brooklyn and Aspire 2 Dance - thank you for your constant support.  Let's keep this thing going!

We have many exciting things in store for 2016 including a free class series at Athleta Flatiron's new studio and the Wukkout!® Master Class at the Empower! Fusion Fitness Conference in Chicago!  The thing I am most excited about though has to be the Wukkout!® Instructor Training and Certification Program.  If you'd like to stay in the loop about instructor training or any of these events, be sure to subscribe to the email list and follow Wukkout!® on Instagram and as always, you can find the current class schedule here.

Thank you again for all of your continued support - let's make this year even better than the last!  Check out the pictures below for a visual recap of 2015.

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Fitness buffs looking for a little spring in their step will find some Caribbean-inspired moves at a Bed-Stuy studio this March.

Dancer and choreographer Krista Martins brings her Wukkout! class to Bedford Avenue, where students can learn to “wine,” “juk” and “wuk” to soca, calypso and chutney tunes.

The 55-minute sessions are meant to invoke the feeling of a Caribbean carnival, where revelers dance freely in weeklong parades and festivities.

“I grew up loving carnival and going as a young child,” Martins said. “I always wanted to find a way to share the culture with the masses.

“It’s kind of euphoric, like an out of body experience when you’re not even thinking and it’s almost as if the spirit is moving me when I hear a particular song.”
