I hope you had an amazing weekend! I know I did 🙂 If you follow me on IG or Snapchat you probably got a glimpse of the highlight of my weekend, which was attending the Wotless Fit Festival on Saturday. If you didn’t see my social media this past weekend, you are probably thinking what in the world is that lol! Think dance, meets zumba, meets Soca music, meets wining yuh waist gyal. Can we say fun, fun, fun! Whoever came up with this idea is a genius 🙂
I must admit I am fairly new to Soca music. Needless to say I was very unsure about how I would feel about going to an event where most if not all of the music would be Soca. But a few of my girls were going so I thought, why not give it a try.
The WFF (Wotless Fit Festival) took place for the first time at Karma nightclub in the NE part of Washington DC. The previous WFF took place in NY. It was such a hit they decided to bring it to DC. During the city/ state roll call, it seemed that there were a good number of participants from NY who came along to show their support. Which was cool.
Although this festival did not start on time, the duration was approximately 3 hours long with approximately 7 different instructors. Each instructor definitely had their own style, which was evident in the way they lead their session in this festival. Can you imagine how many calories were burned in those 3 hours of working out? I’m talking wining your waist, jumping, lunging, squatting, and moving your body for all those hours. Yes the next day I was sore in places, I guess I have not worked out in a while. But overall I don’t regret it one bit.
Since Karma is a nightclub, there were drinks available at the bar. Free samples of a premixed fruit drink were also available at the bar. There were also a few local vendors at this festival.
My favorite part of the event was the live DJ. This really brought the festival to life. My least favorite part was that you didn’t really have a clear view of the stage if you were in the back which made it difficult to follow the routine. So the instructors that came into the crowd to demonstrate routines got extra points in my book because those who couldn’t fully see them before got a better view. Eventually, my friends and I had to keep squeezing our way towards the front of the stage through the crowd to get a better view especially with the instructors that stayed on stage. I would hope by the next festival, the organizers would get a projector with 2 screens so it would be easier for everyone to follow the instructor.
Overall this was a great event to enjoy with friends. Hopefully the next time WFF or something similar is near your town you will check it out.
