Fancy some fetish with your fitness?! CLEO Magazine asks me how!
Friday 6th March 2015
Danni from CLEO Magazine came to watch my Boot Campers 'work out' during one of my Forced Fitness sessions. The boys had started to sweat but it wasnt from the exercise...
Like your reverse lunge with a side of paddleboard to the buttocks? No?
Ok, what about being forcefully encouraged along on the rowing machine by a set of nipple clamps attached to your lady lumps?
We're guessing that's probably a no but PT cum domanatrix Mistress Anna runs a bootcamp with plenty of willing and eager victims clients.
Catching onto the fitness trend two years ago after some of her bondage and discipline (BD), dominance and submission (DS) and sadism and masochism (SM) clients were discussing their desire to get fit, Mistress Anna opened The Rose Centre in Sydney’s Woolloomooloo. The studio is the first of it’s kind in Australia, a fetish boot camp, with circuit style training.
Mistress Anna, who’s been in the industry for over 10 years including five years as a professional dominatrix, takes the health and fitness aspect of the classes seriously. “They’re working out and getting fit, but being rewarded too,” she says. “It’s great motivation.”
When we arrive to check out a class, it kicks off unlike any circuit training we’ve been to before.
For starters, clients are dressed in an array of nappies and PVC gimp masks. Mistress Anna orders them to take a position of submission, like a yoga child’s pose with their hands facing to the sky, and answer her questions with “Yes Mistress Anna, no Mistress Anna.”
“Did you keep to your food diary this week?” she asks. Already we’re thinking as we sit watching – “if this statuesque woman dressed in latex and army print and holding a whip asked us the same question every week, we’d probs look like Candice Swanepoel in a month.”
Once the clients have their dick and balls tied with rope, or their nipple clamps attached it turns into a standard-ishboot camp training. There’s squats (butt whippings – literally), rows (with nipple clamps) and push-ups (with toe kissing). With a full 45-minute program it’s obvious she has a health and fitness background!
Mistress Anna’s plan is to start yoga classes this year and eventually run wellness weekends with a BDSM, DS, MS tweak of course.
While you might not be sold on the kink-factor, maybe Mistress Anna is onto something? Picture this ladies, boot camp rewarded with whatever your poison might be (chocolate, oral?) -we’ll leave that one for you to conger.
Mistress Anna will be on the HOUSEWIVES on Fire float featuring Madame Lash (another famed Sydney Dominatrix) at the Sydney Mardi Gras this weekend. They’ll be raising money for Twenty 10 (http://www.twenty10.org.au) – a community based, non-profit, statewide organisations who support people with diverse genders, sexes and sexualities and their families.
