Gym workout inspired by 'Motown: The Musical'

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

From the Supremes to the Jackson Five, nothing gets me moving like the infectious music of Motown. That's exactly what happened when I hit the gym with the cast of Broadway's "Motown: The Musical."

The soul of Motown is alive and well on Broadway. "Motown: The Musical" flashes back to Detroit's glory days, featuring over 50 everlasting melodies from hit machines like The Temptation.

The immortal music that broke down barriers and shaped modern pop charts is helping New Yorkers get in shape today.

Lashawn teaches an aerobics class inspired by "Motown: The Musical" at Crunch Gym on 54th Street.

I'm not going to lie and say it was easy as one, two, three but I can honestly say I've never had more fun in the name of fitness.

The Motown class is part of Crunch Gym's ongoing Broadway series and will be running until March 30, 2014.

    Believe it or not this, some say New York's outdoor basketball courts are a dying entity. Even Rucker Park in Harlem -- where Dr. J and countless others honed their skills -- used to be standing room only all times of the day. Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.
