What started as a single Bollywood-style fitness class at UC Berkeley quickly grew to 150-plus regular attendees, with award-winning choreographer Mayuri Bhandari leading the way. Throw in a Harvard Business grad and an America's Got Talent alum, and you've got the founders — and occasional teachers — of BollyX. The program launched in 2013 with just one location and has since grown to six, including one in New York.
Want to try out the new fitness trend? BollyX is offered at the Stepping Out Studios in Flatiron and Pearl Studios in Midtown West. Space is limited though, so if you want to release your inner swagger while burning some major calories (500 to 800 per class), sign up early.
