  • New Class Alert: STRONG by Zumba

    Starting in 2018

    STRONG by Zumba is a revolutionary high-intensity workout where every move is synced to a beat, pushing you harder to give it everything you’ve got, and then some.

    During class, you’ll burn calories and tone your muscles using plyometric movements (high knees, burpees and jumping jacks) and isometric movements (lunges, squats and kickboxing).


    STRONG by Zumba will make its official debut during Winter 1, but you can be one of the first to try it ahead of time.

    Thursday, December 21
    4:30-5:20 p.m.
    Instructor: Brittany
