SocaMotion and The Sweat Party

SocaMovers who have attended our classes know that we sweat – aka “glow” – regularly.

Different classes make us sweat for different reasons – like impact, focused toning, or heat therapy – but we are no strangers to some natural shine.

But what about sweating at a party?

That’s not a foreign concept for us either.   Common attire for your typical soca fetes (parties) is shorts, sneakers, cotton shirts and a flag.   With all of the jumping, waving and wining, sweating is a natural reaction as your body seeks to keep cool in venues packed with people taking their energy to the max.

However, Grae Enterprises has taken things even further with a phenomenon called The Sweat Party.”

The Sweat Party is a unique combination of fitness, wellness and lifetime that is taking over New York.

Changing Tides ~ New Season, New Classes

An integral part of the SocaMotion model is creating classes that change with the season.   It is a concept, created by Onya West, to incorporate different disciplines as well as fight boredom and the plateau effect.    Soca music has so many different flavors that overlap with several musical genres and the people of the Caribbean reflect the entire ethnic spectrum and training.   SocaMotion embraces all of this within its business model.

The classes from the previous two seasons adapted to the activity levels and changes in metabolism for the season.  Here is the lineup for the Summer 2010 Wave and Fall 2010 Wave.

SocaMotion Makes Weight Loss Fun and Tasty!


From its start in  Summer 2010, SocaMotion was created to provide a balanced approach to nutrition and exercise that would be a great benefit for those trying to lose weight.     Just as we developed a variety of classes – such as SocaStetix™ and SocaFlags™ – that embraced different kinds of soca music and offered choices for different tastes and fitness levels, SocaMotion found a way to encourage healthy weight loss with a Caribbean flair.    Hence, the SocaSLIMDOWN Weight Loss Challenge was born as a twist on the Biggest Loser concept and the trend of weight loss challenges that are community-based versions and could be integrated with our fun classes.

Anyone who has tried to lose weight before knows first hand that when it comes to achieving results exercise is  helpful, but diet is essential.

The Caribbean diet features fresh, natural ingredients and tasty ways to lose weight
