I've intended to join one of these "Mommy Groups" in the city, to get Ava & I out of the house so we can meet other Moms & babies. I get the emails everyday, announcing new activities. I've never gone. Until today. The "Lincoln Park Moms" group was hosting a free class at Flirty Girl Fitness called "Yummy Mommy". For those of you that don't know, it's a super cool place where you go to work out... and dance like a stripper. I simply HAD to check it out.
Let me start by saying, the facility was incredible. Super clean. They have a spa, snack bar.. and drum roll please.. a FULL BAR! This place is heaven! I don't want to leave! Ava and I make our way into the class and there they are... the shiny poles. I'm thinking - what the heck is going to happen....?? I envision myself sliding around on it, all sexy and sultry (think Demi Moore).
Sorry to disappoint.. there was no pole dancing. At all. Well except for Ava.... she thought it was fun to hold onto it and go around in circles. I warned her that this would be her one and only time on or near a stripper pole. Instead, the class was how to exercise with your baby. I got a good workout... Ava got to run around and play with the other kids (yes, amongst many stripper poles)... and best of all, it was FREE! Can't beat it.
I'm thinking I'll go back someday... maybe if I drink enough at their bar, I'll get the guts to take a pole dancing class. Boy wouldn't Ken just LOVE that?! :) Now that I think about it, that's probably the reason for the bar. Genius!
Here is the video from their site just so you can see how neat the place is.
