Feel like some Morning Glory? 
It’s a fitness class that started at 6:30 a.m. at London’s Shoreditch, burning calories to the beat of DJ’s before going to work. 
Kind of like raving, without the drugs and alcohol at midnight. And the classes are unstructured where participants don’t follow a set routine, making up their own moves. 
Judging by the response, it was a raving success!
