Come try Zumba for free. For anyone who hates to exercise, Zumba will feel more like a Salsa party than a workout.
Zumba is not difficult and anyone can, and should, experience it. It’s a Latin-inspired cardio dance fitness class that incorporates many different dance styles and international music rhythms to provide one amazing high calorie burn workout. No dance skills are required to participate in the class. Our classes are created to apply for all fitness levels, whether you are just starting out in finding a healthier life-style or you are already extremely active.
Zumba targets the glutes, legs, arms and abs, all while burning calories through an interval workout of fast and slow movements.
The class will be offered on Mondays and Thursdays, Dec. 10, 13, 20 and 27 from 6 to 7 p.m.   at the Olde Armory.
Call the Recreation Department at 425-6009 for more info.
