Best Workout Group San Francisco 2006 - Get in Shape, Bitch!
What with everything '80s in full revival, there's no better time than the present to bring back the workout jams of yore. Hence, Get in Shape, Bitch!, a collection of kooks willing to don fluorescent one-piece bathing suits and headbands and sweat to classics like Olivia Newton-John's "Let's Get Physical." The group's manifesto, according to its leader, Unitard (aka local singer Uni of Uni & Her Ukulele), is, "It's our duty to be America's choice for fitness. ... We just want to make you sweat 'til you bleed." While that statement may sound a tad intense, there's no need to worry: Get in Shape, Bitch! works the funny bone as much as any other body part. Throughout the shows, DJ Sweat spins synthtastic numbers like "Footloose" while Unitard, Shasta, Wendy, and Rex deliver more bounce to lose that ounce, occasionally grabbing the mike for some righteous sing-alongs. Richard Simmons, eat your heart out, bitch.
