Masquerade balls, secret societies, even today’s modern Halloween, all invoke a feeling of excitement and mystery, and all have something in common…. We feel safe expressing ourselves behind a mask. This has dated back centuries. Even some of our most loved folk tales involve some character or another wearing a mask. When our faces are “hidden” or shrouded in darkness we feel a sense of freedom to express ourselves in ways we normally would think twice about for fear of being judged. In my opinion, it’s the same reason raves gained such popularity in the 90’s. The freedom to walk into a dark space, only illuminated by magical lights and sounds that play on the senses and suddenly one was free to dance for hours on end with complete strangers.
This is possibly the reason behind one of the hottest new trends at house parties, fraternity ragers, birthday bashes and even fitness facilities, the return of the glow party. Who doesn’t love the allure of being in the dark? Add black lights, iridescent glow paint, neon clothing, and heart thumping rhythms and it’s like magic. Even the fitness industry is getting on board with glow spin classes, and even Rave fitness. In the dark, suddenly even the idea of working out doesn’t seem as intimidating. At Wicked Fitness, we strive to bring our clients new, cutting edge, out of the box fitness experiences, so yes, of course we are jumping on this band wagon too, of course with a wicked twist.
Tribal Glow will be an all-out feast for the senses all while feeling the safety net of being unrecognizable in the dark. Tribal costumes, glow attire, tribal glow in the dark painting, and mesmerizing rhythms will not only have you feeling like you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole, but you can feel free to let your inner self dance freely amongst a sisterhood of other women there to encourage and have fun! Why should kids get to have all the fun? Glow fitness makes you forget how truly hard you are working your muscles. I hope you come hide in the dark with us and at the same time be set free!
