Dancing with Ann Rushing our Zumba instructor – Monday –Tuesday-Thursday and Fridays @ 6 pm
Perfect For: Everybody and everybody! Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.
How It Works:
We take the “work” out of the 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 an exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
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.
Why? Because when it’s fun, it doesn’t feel like any work.
Our Facility Features:
When you’re looking to lose weight, the primary exercise you need to engage in to accomplish your goal is cardio training. If you devote yourself exclusively to strength training, you’ll likely end up getting even bigger and weighing more, especially in the beginning, which might serve to de-motivate you. You want to build muscle, but it’s much more important initially to cut fat through cardio training. You will also become healthier overall through increased cardiovascular exercise, which can only aid you in your weight loss efforts. Cardio training is your current and future key to success when it comes to winning the battle of the bulge. Not only will you improve your capacity to burn fat, but you will also become leaner. This is the formula for not only weight loss, but for sustained weight loss, as well.
Our full-length Basketball Court is the ideal place where Basketball players will find pick-up games in action on our basketball court. Players also have access to a half court which is used during field trips and group fitness classes as well. These courts and other rooms in our facility can be rented out for corporate and other special events.
Fully equipped weight room has everything you need for a complete workout. You will find the racks, benches, dumbbells, barbells, pulleys, and medicine balls to suit any lifting style. Surround sound music adds to the energy in the room.
Our locker room facilities are clean, spacious and comfortable (bring your own lock). Our private showers enhance the workout experience making it easy for you to get dressed for your next event.
