Zumba!
Aug 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

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.

Benefits

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.

$5 a class or free with Wellness Membership
