Welcome to Retrosweat – the authentic 1980s freestyle aerobic workout! Inspired by the original VHS workouts made famous by Retro fitness queens such as Jane Fonda, Denise Austin, Patti Sorenson and Cher, founder Shannon Dooley fuses the iconic moves from the classic era with her own unique retro-styled choreography, and smashes them out to a soundtrack of 12 classic ‘80s grooves that changes every week to keep you on your toes. The result? Litres of sweat, loads of laughter, buns of steel and a core to die for.

Shannon’s workout is for anyone who wants to have fun and get a sizzlin’ hot bod simultaneously. Retrosweat burns calories and tones your entire body. It strengthens your heart, improves posture, flexibility, co-ordination and confidence. Working out is a pleasure when you’re getting hot ‘n’ heavy with Michael Jackson, The Pointer Sisters, Prince or The Police and looking bodacious while you’re doing it. Retrosweat is more than a workout. It’s an experience.



Retrosweat’s chilled out sister, Retroflow is the ultimate romantic night out with your fabulous self. It’s a freestyle vinyasa flow yoga class set to a gently played soundtrack of 1980s torch songs. We turn the lights down low, and with the help of George Michael, the Pretenders, Foreigner, Whitney Houston and Lionel Richie, our heart chakras are caressed and our bodies enjoy 60 minutes of big love. This class is soul soothing, flexibility enhancing, heart healing, highly cathartic and appropriate for any fitness level.
