3 ways to instantly upgrade your outdoor workout

Watch 3 Well+Good editors try this 60-minute shortcut to self confidence


Ever need a quick boost of confidence, let’s say, before asking your boss for a well-deserved promotion or before a first date? Turns out, you can dip into your inner well of self esteem during your lunch break (intrigued?).

It all comes down to a workout. Specifically, DanceBody’s upbeat 60-minute cardio class, held in a plant-filled studio in New York City (and streamed online to legions of dance-obsessed fans).

To test out if beat-induced endorphins really can put a pep in your (inner and outer) step, we teamed up with New Balance—the athletic go-to for fitness essentials and street style kicks that’s always rocked an independent vibe—to have three Well+Good staffers try it, IRL.

“You gain this amazing amount of self-confidence that you only get by attempting something new and nailing it.”

But what does fancy footwork have to do with self-love? “I’m pushing people to the brink of their comfort zone, and asking them to go 10 yards beyond that,” says Katia Pryce, founder and CEO of DanceBody. “As you progress, you gain this amazing amount of self-confidence that you only get by attempting something new and nailing it.”

Watch the video above to see whether they manage to lose their inhibitions with a few heart-pumping sets—and shop their footwear picks below.
