Fitness Zumba

This is Perfect for Everybody and every body. Each Zumba class is designed to bring people together to get their sweat on. 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 will see why Zumba Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective! Super fun! 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. This class will be held outside at our office. We have installed a privacy screen out back of the office to allow privacy from rt 116. Bathrooms will be accessible. Michelle Lindee Instructor.
