OUR CLASSES ...
ZUMBA - a dance inspired fitness class with Latin moves and rhythms from around the world (samba, salsa, merengue, belly dance, cumbia etc.) You will move, sweat, burn calories (NOT UNUSUAL TO BURN 600-800 CALORIES), tone your whole body and have a blast! No partner or dance experience needed for this fitness class. This is appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. Wear comfortable, cool clothes and athletic shoes with non marking soles.
STRONG by Zumba - This is NOT dance fitness. It is a H.I.I.T class with strong fitness moves but it is created by Zumba so it is FUN! We do not use weights in this class but body weight moves are incorporated throughout the class for strength and core training along with the cardio intervals. This class is for most levels. Beginner through advanced can participate since there are modifications for all moves. If you have specific physical limitations check with Aimee to see if the modifications for this class will be appropriate for you

POWER-FIT - HIIT class incorporating weights, power moves (plyometrics) and body weight moves. Sometimes we use steps, kettlebells, jump ropes and stability balls. We mix it up week by week for variety.
PILATES –This class is focused on strengthening and sculpting the muscles of the body and especially the core. This class is also great for increasing flexiblility. The purpose of the moves in the class (done on a mat) is to lengthen the muscles while strengthening and toning. This is a workout that many dancers use to keep their bodies strong, toned, yet keep their muscles long and lean. Participants are encouraged to work at their own level and increase strength and stamina as the class progresses.
This class focuses on strength training for all of the major muscle groups including the core. We use weights,bands and body weight moves and also incorporate optional plyometrics and power combo moves. This class also includes a stretching and flexibility segment.
KICKBOXING– This is a cardio kickboxing class that focuses on burning calories while strengthening the heart and cardiovascular system as well as overall strength and toning for the muscles of the body.
CARDIO/STRENGTH/CORE COMBO - Just like it sounds and mixed up in different ways to keep it fresh. There is an element of cardio in each class and will be utilizing either kickboxing, step, jump ropes sometimes all of them and then a strength element as well using weights, tubes and your own body weight.
TOTAL BODY FIT-MIX - This class incorporates traditional fitness moves throughout the class (squats, lunges, burpees, plyometrics etc.) along with kickboxing and interval segments. Also includes core specific movements (vertical Pilates) using light weights and stability balls for added resistance. Heavier weights are sometimes used for strength training along with body weight moves.
POUND - This class is a heart pumping, sweat dripping class using ripstix (lightly weighted drumsticks) to pound out a beat while working all the major muscle groups especially the core and lower body. We usually teach this class as a 30 - 40 minute pound segment paired with Pilates. Check the link on the homepage to view a sample of what POUND is all about.
INTERVAL FUSION - H.I.I.T (high intensity interval training) segments using powerful explosive moves like plyometrics, jump ropes, steps etc. for a set timed interval - along with short periods of active recovery. Active recovery is still moving and working, but at a lower intensity allowing you to recover and go into the next H.I.I.T segment. There are strength and core segments worked into the class also.
ALL CLASSES ARE DESIGNED TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE AND GIVE MAXIMUM RESULTS IN THE TIME ALLOTTED. CLASSES ARE DIFFERENT INTENSITY LEVELS, BUT ALL MOVES CAN BE MODIFIED FOR ALL FITNESS LEVELS AND ABILITIES. WE WANT EVERYONE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE COMING TO ANY CLASS AND SUCCESSFUL AT THE END!
