Mountain Mayhem: Burn baby, burn

Denise Latousek of Burn Fitness in Basalt hosted a pre-Thanksgiving party at her studio on Saturday, Nov. 19, as a thank you to the community. She welcomed regular clients, friends and family for an evening of “indulgence, inspiration and celebration” with drinks, hors d’oeuvres, mini makeovers and a dance party.

Making way for the festivities, Latousek moved fitness bikes and equipment out of the studio, opening up the space first for Beautycounter products and cosmetic consultations from the California-based start-up that sells non-toxic make-up, hair, baby and skincare products.

Next, she cleared the space once again, turned down the lights and turned up the DJ for a full-blown dance party with, to be expected, scores of fit women and men filling the dance floor. Michael Latousek stopped the music for a moment, surprising his Scorpio wife with a cake for her birthday on Nov. 23. By the time, the party wrapped the hostess was already talking about cementing it as an annual event.
