TEMPE, Ariz. – Do workouts ever make you feel trapped?

Well don’t worry, you won’t feel that way at a dance studio in Tempe.

When you’re looking to get that summer body right, why not get down to some hip hop and try some Trap Step Cardio. When you step into the Z Room Dance and Fitness with lead dancer Nyla Berrie, come prepared to shake your money maker.

“Trap Step Cardio is an aerobics cardio class, but we use trap music only which is hip hop rap music, most of the songs I select are about hustling grinding doing what you gotta do to get it done”, says Berrie.

Nyla runs “Body by Berrie” in Tempe, helping you lose weight in a nontraditional way.

With a grin on her face, Berrie says, “I created excitement in the class, I do twerk outs, I do the step class, the pole dancing classes, things that make you wanna call your girls and say hey let’s go, let’s work out”.

Berrie was bored with regular workouts and wanted to exercise with her friends while busting a move.

“With Phoenix on the rise, we’re constantly looking for new things. I feel like this is perfect if you need a little spin or a little bit more motivation”, says Berrie.

She is bringing her hometown, St. Louis flavor to the Valley. Berrie was terrified when she started the journey, but after a leap of faith, her dance shoes kept her moving.

“My first class was sold out so that’s when I knew demand was here we just got to give the supply”, said Berrie.
