Denise likes to remain healthy by engaging in dance classes at the Midtown dance classes in New York City. She is particularly fond of ballroom dancing sessions. In case, there is a fashion week around the corner, she goes in for private dance classes as well to take the intensity of the workout a notch higher.
During fashion weeks, her choice of pre-workout food is a shrimp cocktail, which gives her the necessary energy before the exercise. She replenishes her energy levels after the workout with a good old cup of coffee.
