Sweatin’ yourself into shape! Yala Fitness creator Laurent Amzallag and the Yala Fitness teamtransformed a defunked nightclub into a once-again DC hotspot. The first of several Hot Yala Nights event took place at the Zanzibar located on the SW Waterfront.
After the guests settled into the club, the floor show began, giving patrons a truly unique and entertaining fitness experience. Firstpatrons were given lessons in hair maintenance by celebrity stylist JohnnyWright and New4 guest life stylist Rachel Strisik offered quick-tip advice about organizing our lives. Urban Evolution wowed the audience with everythingfrom old school break dancing to stupefying aerial feats like vaulting overrailings and hanging on suspended satin ropes. The show climaxed with Laurent’s signature high-energy dance workout. At the end, Laurent did a nimpromptu gift to his favorite charity, Children’s Hospital, auctioning his coveted private sessions to the highest bidder.
