It was designed for the active older adult, the true beginner, and/or people who are not used to exercising, or people who may be limited physically. The main difference between Zumba Gold and Zumba Basic is Zumba Gold is done at a lower (and slower)  intensity, but certainly is as fun. The same great Latin styles of music and dance are used. Interval Challenge: A well-rounded workout that challenges the major muscle groups while allowing for a strong cardio session; moving from cardio to strength including plyometric moves to keep the heart rate from dropping during the strength portions of the class. (2-3) *Cardio Funk: A cardiovascular workout filled with fun dance moves and non-stop action. Bring your attitude and have some “funk”.

This 30-minute sculpting class provides unique multi-joint movements that exercise all the large muscle groups while simultaneously providing a high level of cardiovascular training. Abs Lab: If you want firmer abs and stronger back, this is the class for you. (1-3) Custom Cuts: Learn the secret to permanent fat loss – strength training. Designed not only to boost your caloric expenditure but to redefine, reshape and strengthen the body you were born with. May include short cardio “spurts” to increase overall endurance. (1-3) Shape & Flex: A 55-minute vigorous class designed to challenge you to achieve stronger, leaner muscles and a stable core through the use of primarily free weights and the step bench as a weight platform. This class incorporates less complicated compound movements, longer transition time between sets, and limited use of nontraditional weight training equipment.

We also explore primal animal locomotion using dynamic plyometric movements and contralateral stabilization to build incredible core strength and explosive power. Power Yoga: This yoga class focuses on using the power of the mind, body and breath to build strength and endurance while practicing yoga postures. The class will integrate vinyasa flows with “power” holds of yoga postures that allow the student time to breath, sink into, and explore his/her mind, body and spirit while in a particular yoga asana. (2-3) Yin Yoga: Targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Yin postures are held 3 to 5 minutes at a time. This practice helps joints stay moist and supple.
