EVERYBODY AND EVERY BODY! EACH ZUMBA® CLASS IS DESIGNED TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER TO SWEAT IT ON.
HOW IT WORKS:
We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
No dance experience necessary, all levels of fitness welcome! Just come out and have some fun! Please bring indoor shoes and a water bottle.
A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.
