There are some workout classes that make me want to run screaming from the building. Some make me watch every cruel second tick by on the clock. But precious few - and I mean really, like practically none - make me want to stay on for a second hour.

Which is why I was so surprised when, 45 minutes into cardio barre at Anatomy L.A. in Highland Park, I found myself having so much dang fun that the following words escaped my lips: "Yes, I would like to stay another hour for Exotic Dance."

That's right: I had signed on willingly for two full hours of exercise, and it wasn't even cause I wanted to be polite. I meant it.
