Zumba at the park!

The weather is finally warming up and it means it's time for our Zumba at the Park class!  The class will take place on Saturday, June 4, 9-10 am at the Flat Iron Mesa Park in Sandy (8600 S 1700 E) - watch for the Zumba signs!  This class is FREE and everyone is invited to attend.  Bring your family, friends and neighbors - let's spread Zumba Love!  Zumba is a fun, calorie-burning, energy-boosting workout and it's a perfect way to start your day!   I am preparing a great playlist for the class with new original choreographies and some old favorites.  Your kids will have fun too dancing to Zumbatomic songs with Karine and Nadia at the end of the class!  Wear comfortable workout clothes and shoes, and bring a bottle of water.  After class enjoy healthy snacks, browse through Zumbawear, and sign your kids up for Zumbatomic camp coming up June 13-14 at TLC Dance, located just around the corner from the park.
I'd like to hear from you!  Post your song suggestions, comments, questions! 
Zumba Love!

Have you tried Zumba Toning yet?

While I do a lot of toning exercises/steps in my regular Zumba® classes, I felt like I wanted to push my body a bit further and add that extra boost to my workouts.  So when I learned about Zumba® Toning last year, I decided to get certified and add a separate toning class to my schedule.  It soon became one of our most popular classes and my students' favorite.

When it comes to body sculpting, Zumba® Toning raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick). It combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba moves to create a calorie-torching, strength-training dance fitness-party. Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs and thighs. Zumba Toning is the perfect way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.
These are the toning sticks!  The yellow ones on the left weigh 1.5 lb each.  These are the ones we work out with in class.  Some of my students have recently started using heavier, 2.5 lb toning sticks (on the right) to add an extra boost.  Give it a try and see what works best for you!

Zumba Toning classes:
WED @ FUEGO at 5:30 pm
SAT @ TLC Dance @ 9 am (will be switching to Monday nights in June).
