    Hey J here punk rock aerobics. A punk workout from Maura Jasper in Boston.

    People go free form pogo during Freakscene I took money at the door for saturdays 2pm class at the middle east in cambridge. They play Freakscene at every workout and have gotten tons of tv and newspaper press in Boston check out punkrockaerobics.com

    later J



    What? No video available? I have tried a lot of video workouts and the most unbearable thing about them is the music. Usually the cheesiest in the world. I actually just donated every one I had bought to charity cause I just couldn’t take the tunes.

    Punk rock aerobics is just what I’ve been looking for and never finding! Maybe since they are getting lots of press, there will be a video or Florida franchise coming my way!!



    Sounds cool as long as Richard Simmons does`nt get into it and releases a video like"slamming to the Pistols".



    Kool idea indeed. Working out to the Stooges’ Funhouse sure as hell would whip me into shape in no time [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]



    Soon they’ll be teaching line dancing to the "take a run at the sun.



    that video is cool when evan dando smacks the boom box with the brick

    …pogo!" Boston punks give Richard Simmons’s Sweating to the Oldies a DIY makeover. J. Mascis gives it a thumbs-up

    TWO AGING PUNKS have started a punk-rock aerobics class held in Boston-area nightclubs. The class, aptly, is called "Punk Rock Aerobics."

    The class encouarges attendees to throw themselves around to songs by the Sex Pistols and the Stooges. But pint glasses are filled with water, cigarettes are temporarily stashed, and people lying on the floor are totally conscious.

    Since August, Hilken Mancini, 31, of the Boston band Fuzzy, and Maura Jasper, 35, a visual artist, have led growing numbers of tattooed clubgoers through a one-hour regiment of Pete Townshend air-guitar windmills, quad-building pogoing, and muscle toning lat pumps using cinder block bricks as weights.

    "I used to go to the Y, and people stared at me like I was a freak," Mancini explains. "I’d much rather dance around to a Dinosaur Jr. song than some techno shit."

    To that end, while Mancini uses the music of blondie as a cool-down, Dinosaur Jr.’s "Freak Scene" comes at the class’s sweaty climax.

    "They’ll probably equate the song with the pain they felt after the aerobics class," groans Dinosaur Jr. honcho J. Mascis. Still, the veteran guitar hero, who is also dating Mancini, is amused by the track’s new use. "I’ll have to consider the aerobic possibilities of my other songs." – Nina Willdorf

    there is also a picture of J and Maura (for those of you not in the know Maura did the artwork for lots of the early dino stuff) with punk rock aerobics shirts and a picture of Hilken with cinderblocks in her hands.
    and what’s with this other stuff are J and Hilken really dating?



    Cool, thanks for posting that Bob! They is also a brief snippit in Rolling Stone this month (with Alecia Keys on the cover)
