It’s Time to Party with 305 Instructor Kelly Ingersoll!

This week we caught up 305 instructor Kelly Ingersoll! Find out how she releases her negative energy with some sweat and constantly keeps her clients twerking.

How do you create a class that caters to both beginners and experts?

Luckily, ((305)) makes it fun for EVERYONE no matter if you’ve been taking class for years, or are brand new. When planning a class, I try to strike the balance of the two age old adages: “Fate favors the prepared,” and “How do you make God laugh? Make a plan.” (Insert “the universe” for “God” if that’s more your thing, I’m about it al! ✌). I go in with a plan, but if a class looks like they need a challenge, we can always kick it up a notch. If I notice people aren’t looking confident, we can always simplify dances! The best classes I take are when I feel like every challenge was attainable, but I still got my ass kicked. No two classes are the same; that’s one of the things that makes ((305)) so special!

What would be your best advice to those of us who have never tried a dance cardio class?

Let go of your inhibitions!” We have a live DJ and we’re air humping and twerking. There’s no room to take yourself seriously, just let go and dance like no one is watching. There are no mistakes, only solos!

Do you have any exercises you like to do to switch up your fitness routine?

Aside from ((305)), I like to take barre and yoga classes. I find that they are the complete opposite of ((305)). The contrast allows me to go inward, work on my strength (both physical and mental), and be at peace with where I’m at in the present moment.

What’s your best fitness tip?

Know your limits, respect them, then push them. Also, HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE!!! Drink so much water, and then drink more.

What’s the most rewarding part of working out for you?

The mental clarity! I’ve found that the best therapy for me is sweating out any negative energy I’m harboring. It truly lets it all go. I also find acknowledging the gratitude I feel that I can move my body grounds me and makes me want to share the love of movement with other people!
