STRONG by Zumba launches!

Join me in STRONG by Zumba! I’m super excited about this class: it’s not a dance class but a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) class. The moves are synced to music, which means you have to keep up—so you have to work hard.

Class meets at the UMF FRC on Mondays and Wednesdays, 9:15–10a, and Saturday mornings at 9:15–10:15a. The Tuesday night class was canceled.

The class is made up of quadrants, each of which escalates in intensity. The moves progress: you start out with a burpee prep, then a slow burpee, then a fast burpee. Need to stay back a layer? Do so. Want to up your intensity? I can help you out with that!

You’ll do jabs, uppercuts, punches, knee lifts, core rotations, football rumbles, planks, lunges… get the idea? The choreography is simple and progressive. The fourth quadrant is floor work.

More info is available on the official STRONG by Zumba Web site.
