In Las Vegas, Clubbing Is My Cardio

People would always tell me, “You go out a lot,” and in my mind, I wanted to explain that I do not go out a lot; I work out a lot. I knew they probably wouldn’t have understood what I was saying so let me explain…

I’ve lived in Las Vegas since birth, and I have to say the lifestyle here has peaked my interest since my minor years. The dancing, the music, the outfits, and the crowd that Las Vegas nightlife draws in is world renowned.
I don’t know about you, but clubbing qualifies as an actual workout in my eyes. Think about it; you’re dancing all night long, pushing through a crowded dance floor, and bending down to adjust your heels, all while holding a drink in your hand! If that’s not working out, I don’t know what is.

There is not much of a difference by saving your cardio workout for the club than getting on your treadmill in the gym. The only differences are the venues being more upscale, socializing is encouraged, and you switch out your sneakers for heels. People are up at all hours working out anyway, so why not do it in a more exciting atmosphere?
In the gym, ladies sign up for free, whereas on The Strip, they gain access to the most glamorous spots in the city. You don’t even need a membership! Being local has its perks when it comes to the Las Vegas nightlife. Most of the time you can get in for free and sometimes a complimentary table will get thrown in as well. Tables are great because you can give your body a break from the crowd and it is nice to have a landing spot. Tables could compare to a locker room, but please keep your clothes on. Nightclubs even keep you hydrated by providing you with bottle service. Granted it’s not water, but the gesture is nice.

Don’t get me wrong; you have to work a little at it. Promoters can be harsh and pushy but so can gym membership sales associates.
The way I see it, this is the best option for those that like to dress up and to go to the gym. If you want to put on some makeup before you hit the treadmill no one should stop you, but I also think other options will put that style to use. Dress up and go to the nightclubs!

To work out, you need to make sure you have the right equipment.


Although, you are not going to a gym, so the same rules do not necessarily apply. When dressing for the gym you look for functionality, but when dressing for the club, style should be a top priority.  Some essentials include clothes, heels, and accessories. Anything beyond that is up to you.

What’s a night out without a little ammunition? You may get in for free, but drinks still cost. Bring your own for beforehand and save yourself the time and trouble later.


No workout is complete if you do not keep hydrated. Water refreshes you and keeps you hydrated so you can keep going or relax. It is entirely versatile. Come hydrated and re-hydrate once you leave. We don’t want any aches the next morning.


Or a few. Groups of girls are better than dynamic duos in this case. One round of hot bods coming right up!

I’ve been trying to fall in love with the gym again, and sometimes I love it, but sometimes I hate it. I love working out if it involves going out. That’s all there is to it.
