What a great idea!!

'Skinny jeans' class aims to aid your zip - CNN.com
Quote:
The Skinny Jeans Workout concentrates on core muscles, balance and posture. A cross between ballet, butt-burning stretches and light weight lifting, the workout involves the entire body.

The hourlong class is taught twice a week. Regulars swear they've dropped a jeans size or two since the class began four months ago. They say it not only tightens the tush, but the workout also helps develop the flexibility and strength to hold the back straight.

Sorry, but that just sounds like such a gimmick. Any class that incorporates cardio and weightlifting is going to help get you in shape (and lose jeans sizes) IF you do it regularly and eat right. It sounds like an okay class, but really it's just a marketing thing to imply that that class in particular will help you fit into skinny jeans. I suppose maybe the name helps to motivate people to go, but people should know that you can't just focus on spot training to get in shape or lose weight.
