Finnish term or phrase: menopakkaus
An Yleisradio audiofile (www.wrn.org):
... hyvin pukeutunut, seksikäs, aerobikissa käyvä menopakkaus.

Only one Google hit (http://www.geocities.com/heinis02/valssi.htm):

Valssi oli jo syntyessään melkoinen menopakkaus.. Eli vetoa kyllä riittää eikä energasta ole puutetta! Hidastaminen onkin sitten vähän eri asia. Esteilläkin jarrut ovat vähän hakusessa ja seuraavalle esteelle pidättäminen voi käydä tiukaksi. Mutta jos saat Valssin pidettyä hallitusti, näyttää ratsastus varmasti paljon kauniimalta ja vielä kun muistat olla rento. Valssille on tullut kyllä melko kova suu, joten hieman terдvemmät kuolaimet eivät varmaankaan olisi pahitteeksi :)

The waltz was a good starter right from the outset...

Thanks a lot.
I'm sure many will know that feeling of frustration when a word cannot be found anywhere, no matter how hard you look. And Finnish, regrettably, is less represented on the web than English by a wide margin.

agree  Jyri Lehtinen: Go-getter sounds right. In the latter text Valssi is a name of a horse.
