Forget toiling away at a sweaty treadmill for half an hour each day whilst you try not to think about that chocolate bar you left in the bottom of your gym bag. It’s time to get your glow sticks out and slap on some neon paint. Glow stick raves are the latest fitness craze!
What is glow stick fitness?
Think 90’s club minus the Alcopops. Glow stick fitness classes are energetic dance aerobic workouts to (mainly) club hits from the 90’s in a darkened room with disco lights. And the best bit… everyone gets glow-sticks.
It’s an exercise class that feels more like a night out. Or as one glow stick fitness enthusiast described it: “You know on a night out when your favourite song comes on and you think it’s the BEST THING EVER. It was like that, but for a whole hour”.

And if that’s not enough to get you sprinting down to your nearest gym, check out these reasons why glow fitness is better than a night out clubbing.
What’s so appealing about these classes is not just the way they make exercising fun (you can burn up to 500 calories in an hour-long class), but also they way they allow people to really go for it. Exercising in the dark makes you feel a lot less self-conscious than being surrounded by Elle MacPherson lookalikes in a brightly-lit room.
Plus you can take it at your own pace. Whether you do all the moves full-out like a sweaty rave junkie hyped-up on caffeine, or take it easy, it’s up to you… No one will see you; you’re in a dark room.
Launching your own glow stick fitness class?
Glow stick fitness classes are popping up all over the country. And they’re insanely popular. If you’re starting your own glow fitness class, take a look at some of our most popular glow stick fitness products:
Premium 6” Glow Sticks – Our premium glow sticks provide an ultra-bright glow, which makes them perfect for when the lights go out, and the music starts going. Each glow stick comes with a lanyard so it can hang around your neck and cost as low as 28p each (when ordering a 2000 pack).
8” Glow Stick Bracelet – Our quality glow bracelet is easy to assemble and wrap around your wrist. It’s a great excuse to wave-your-hands-in-the-air-like-you-just-don’t-care.
22” Glow stick necklace – Get your head round this. Or rather, get this around your head. Our glow necklaces are made-up of three colours and come in packs of 50+. People have also been known to wrap these around their thighs, but it’s totally up to you.
Neon UV and Glow Body Paints – make sure your class can see you. Get creative with some glow-in-the-dark face paint or run some UV streaks through your hair. Our UV cosmetics glow intensely under a blacklight, and our glow paints are charged by natural light to glow in the dark.
