Get fit this summer with Burlexercise!

Regular visitors of Rickmansworth Web will have noticed that we recently added fitness company Burlexercise to our health and beauty directory. With a lot of you likely to be going on holiday this summer, we thought it would be a great time to provide you with insight on how Burlexercise can help you get fit, in shape and feel confident in your swimwear!

Firstly, let’s introduce you to the founders:

Burlexercise is a fitness company that incorporates token showgirl elements. The company was established by two women: Katie Ella Hardwicke and Sarah-Lou Buckle.

Katie is a local girl who grew up in Chorleywood, attending St Clement Dances School and now lives here in Rickmansworth. Her career as a professional dancer started after she graduated with a degree in Theatre Dance from London Studio Centre. She performed all over the world and in London’s West End for six years. After, Katie began a career in Burlesque and performed with Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly show for 3 years before joining London’s most ‘electrifying Burlesque troupe’: The Folly Mixtures. To diversify her skills even more, Katie then went on to qualify as a Personal Trainer.

Sarah-Lou is a professional dancer, a fellow ‘Folly Mixture’ and also a qualified fitness instructor. Having worked together for many years, the two women decided to combine their experience and abilities to create a new exciting exercise class.


Now, let’s tell you about the fitness class:

Burlexercise is a medium to high intensity fitness class that is designed for an all over body workout. It is considered a fitness class like no other as not only does it help burn calories and tone your body but it also incorporates hints of Burlesque and showgirl fun!


Classes start with a 30 minute cardio section that involves: aerobics, dance and Burlesque. They then move into Resistance Training, a 25 minute weights session that tones: arms, backs, legs, bottoms, core and abs – all of the parts of your body that you want looking great whilst in the sun! During this weights session you will be using unique ‘weighted boas’, to help add to the glamorous, Burlesque atmosphere.

Why you should attend:

Burlexercise classes are exclusive to Central London and Rickmansworth/Chorleywood, therefore you are in a position to attend and see great results before your friends outside of these areas can. By attending the weekly classes at St Clement Danes School on Monday’s (8-9pm) and enjoying a healthy, balanced diet, you will be in great shape for your upcoming summer holiday!

Classes are only £10 per time and if you book six in advance you can save £12!
