Curves offering Zumba
Posted: Wednesday, January 26, 2011 8:01 pm
Curves® and the new fitness craze Zumba Fitness® are joining forces to offer the only 30-minute class that mixes the moves of Zumba with the proven strength training of Curves for one wildly effective workout.
Curves of Union City is willing to let you try it free for a week to find out for yourself.
The local Curves will begin offering Zumba classes Feb. 1.
Classes will be offered three times a week, with morning classes scheduled to begin at 8 on Tuesdays. Evening classes will begin at 5:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The local Curves is located in the Reelfoot Shopping Center.
“Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness is an amazing workout that will really help people stick to their New Year’s resolutions,” local Curves owner Teneia Little said.
“It combines Curves’ proven strength-training program — where you can burn up to 500 calories in just 30 minutes—with the Latin and international inspired music and exhilarating, simple dance moves that have made Zumba so popular. We want you to experience it for yourself to see what an incredible workout it is, so we’re inviting Obion County residents to try it free for one week,” she said.
“This is definitely a boredom-busting workout,” Curves director of Exercise and Research Katie Mitchell said. “There’s a lot going on to keep your attention and keep you motivated. You’re listening to high-energy music that just makes you want to move, watching to make sure you’re meeting your goals on the strength machines, and training your body and your brain by learning new dance moves.”
All ages, fitness levels and dance abilities can participate in and benefit from Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness classes, according to Ms. Mitchell.
During the 30-minute class, participants work out on each Curves strength machine for one minute, alternating upper, lower and core muscles.
After one minute, the music cues participants to change stations on the circuit, and participants move to an area between machines to do Zumba moves, which tone and sculpt the body while burning fat.
At the end of 30 minutes, participants have completed one trip around the entire circuit, worked every major muscle group and achieved a fun, energetic cardio workout ending with a group stretch led by the Zumba instructor, according to Mrs. Little.
