If you didn't score a spot in tomorrow's bridal bootcamp class, here's yet another option for sweating your way to wedding season. Adding to LA's already-inventive list of creative calorie burners is the Vixen Workout, a ladies-only fitness class that's transforming North Hollywood studio Basement Dance Center into a self-encouraged, "safe twerk zone" every Monday and Wednesday evening starting today.

"Los Angeles is a city where everyone goes to fulfill a dream. So now I'm going to LA to fulfill mine," founder/former Miami Heat dancer Janet Jones tells us of her move to bring her hip-hop-fueled circuit class to the City of Angels. Already a hit in the Big Apple and Miami, the club-style workout involves such signature moves like the Milkshake, Ridin' Round & Gettin' It and of course, the Twerkalator, resulting in an hour-long sweat sesh designed to burn between 500 to 1,000 calories.

Taking place at 7pm Monday and Wednesday, the 60-minute classes are $15 each or $130 for a 10-class package. Ready to join Jones' #vixenarmy? Learn more about its inspiring leader here and click here to check out the full sched and book your spot.
