Dance workout puts moves on women’s self-esteem

NEW YORK (AP) — When Janet Jones was laid off from her job as a financial assistant two years ago and hit rock bottom, inspiration struck. The former Miami Heat dancer decided to create a women’s only workout with a safe space to let loose with girlfriends, listen to hip-hop and rap music, curse and even scream. She called it the “Vixen Workout.” As a woman “you need some type of release,” says Jones, who has a 5-year-old daughter. “And you’re not a bad mother for thinking that, you’re not a bad wife, you’re not a bad anything,” said the 33-year-old Jones, who is based in Miami but also leads workouts in New York and other cities. “You’re gonna be a better person, in turn, to your family, if you are the best version of yourself.”
