Teyana Taylor’s creating a dance workout program — prepare to be obsessed

There is nothing more retro than a celebrity workout program. OK, there are some things more retro, but when was the last time you heard about people going crazy for a workout craze that you didn’t have to book months in advance and could just do in the privacy of your own home? Well, they’re back because Teyana Taylor’s launching a dance workout program, so you should be very excited. You can pre-register now, and although I want to tell you to go and sign up right this minute, once you see the teaser video on Taylor’s website, I’m not sure you’ll make it back here.

Because how can you not watch this woman over and over and over again? The teaser video is basically the same idea, sans sheep, as the video for Kanye’s “Fade,” and it’s one glorious minute of Taylor dancing in a thong and sports bra. If that doesn’t convince you to be just like her by doing the Fade 2 Fit workout program, what will? According to her website, the videos will show you how to dance your way to Taylor’s crazy fit bod in the storied tradition of Tracey Anderson and MTV’s The Grind Workout (please tell me you did these, because I did, and I need to not feel alone right now).

Her announcement for the program came via Instagram last week.


Taylor has been signed to West’s label, G.O.O.D, since 2012 and she’s been making music since way before then. But it was the premiere of “Fade” and her killer everything that got people’s attention. What’s cool about this obsession with Taylor (and her cashing in on everyone’s interest) is that it has nothing to do with being skinny or “hot” — this woman is all power. Who doesn’t want that?

Plus, she swears that all she does is dance and eat macaroni and cheese to achieve this strength, which is something I can get behind all the way.

Right now, there’s not a lot of info about when exactly the program will be available or what a subscription will cost. According to the email they send when you pre-register (which you can do here), there’s behind-the-scenes footage included in the package and you get “weekly updates on [their] latest product releases and the progress of your personal program.”

I think I might sign up just to watch Taylor dance — maybe it will inspire me to put down my chips and salsa and get some muscle definition. Or I will just watch Taylor gyrate and try to count her abdominal muscles from my couch. It’s anyone’s guess how I’ll feel when the videos are released.
