Is Your Hot Girl Summer Body Ready? Feat No Waist Gang

No Waist Gang Owners Tyler (left) and DJ (right)

Ladies are you partaking in this hot girl summer? Well if your anything like me then you need to get that summer body together before the fun begins. I know the best workout class in Cleveland that will not only get you in shape but teach you the moves to be able to hang with Meg the Stallion forreal. Best friends and founders D’Andrea Rander aka DJ and Tyler Stevens created No Waist Gang  (NWG) which is Cleveland’s hottest new work out class located in South Euclid.

I had the pleasure of not only attending a couple of NWG classes but also having them host a private event for my cousin. LIT is the best way to describe their classes. Let me tell you! The lights are flashing and trap music is blasting and ladies are bouncing, shaking and drenched in sweat! Sounds like a good time right? Well it is! NWG does a great job of offering a fun environment for women of all ages, shapes and sizes to work out.

This is not your average boring work out class that you attend at the local YMCA (no shade). NWG is a non-stop party with good energy, great music and positive vibes from the moment you walk in until you leave. I mean I was in there twerking, squatting and jamming to the music so much the time flew. It reminds me of a Zumba class for Hip Hop millennial’s because twerking is OUR thing! Did you know an hour of twerking can burn anywhere from 300 to 480 calories?  Ladies I know working out seems more like a chore than a hobby, something we have to do to stay in shape rather than something we enjoy.  Well this is not true for NWG these ladies are helping women make working out a routine.

WHAT IS THE MEANING BEHIND “NO WAIST GANG”?

“No waist” is the goal! It started off as just a saying while working on our own body goals but it had a nice ring to it, it’s catchy and gives us something to work towards. 

IN A WORLD THAT ENCOURAGES COSMETIC BODY SURGERY HOW DO YOU PERSUADE WOMEN TO PURSUE A MORE NATURAL APPROACH TO ACHIEVING THEIR BODY GOALS?

While supporting women’s choices and rights, we always reassure women that they can obtain the body that they desire by just consistently working out. We try our best to support our clients and other women on their fitness journey by congratulating them, giving them nice comments and just showing we recognize their hard work. By boosting their confidence and supporting it helps them to continue. We also encourage our clients to take pictures throughout their journey so that they can see their own progress.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE CONCEPT BEHIND YOUR WORKOUT CLASS AND WHAT MAKES YOUR CLASS DIFFERENT FROM THE REST?

We really wanted to reach out to the Millennial’s (ages 13+ are welcomed) and help our peers get into shape with us. We have tried so many different classes and its usually older people who are overweight with health issues. So we figured why not help our peers get fit now rather than later. We can prevent all these health conditions that we are at a higher risk for just by being African American by exercising and eating healthy. We know most people do not exercise because they cannot afford it. Our classes are only $5 which makes it affordable because we do not require a membership to join. We make keep our classes interesting and fun by teaching new routines every class.

DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER NATURAL HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS YOU WOULD GIVE TO SOMEONE LOOKING TO LOSE WEIGHT?

Yes, we created our all natural detox tea for $15. Our detox tea is recommended with our work out classes, healthier choices and clean eating to obtain maximum weight loss. Also stay physically active even if you don’t come to our classes. Drink water!!! And Stay on top of your health.
