First Floor Dance Studio
Zumba, affectionately called a "dance fitness party", mixes low- and high-intensity moves in an interval-style class set to music. Filled with Latin and World rhythms, Zumba classes are a total body workout, including cardio, muscle conditioning, balance, and flexibility. No dance experience necessary; Zumba meets you where you are and provides the workout you need!
This is a 30 minute spin class followed by a gentle cool down on and off the bike. The class is designed to push your physical and mental limits in order to reach your fitness goals. It combines short bursts of high intensity training with periods of rest in between. This will get your heart racing, body sweating, and have you feeling the burn during and even hours following.
