Zumba Gold is a low-impact version of Zumba dance fitness that keeps all of the fun. Plan to dance, sweat, and have a ton of fun. Zumba Gold is geared to active older adults but everyone is welcome. You can expect a variety of music including both Pop and K-Pop. The Friday Zumba Gold EZ class is a little slower, less complex and shorter (45 min).
Why try it? I do dance walk-throughs and even put up videos of some dances so that everyone can do them.
Zumba Gold Toning is similar to Zumba but we use 1lb Zumba Toning Sticks that also act as maracas. Don't have any? No problem, come anyway! Our combo class mixes regular Zumba Gold with Zumba Gold Toning. You can do the whole class or part of it with or without toning sticks.
Senior Strong is a functional fitness class that will help your body do what you want it to do in your daily life. We focus on strength, toning, flexibility and balance. We use 2, 3, or 5 pound dumbbells. Don't have any? Try a water bottle (preferably full) or a few cans of soup. We do exercises sitting or standing. So a chair without wheels is recommended. You'll also want to have a hand towel and some water to drink.
Tabata for Active Older Adults is a low-impact interval training class. A movement or exercise is done for 20 seconds followed by a rest for 10 seconds. It's repeated eight times, often with optional progressions or modifications. That constitutes a tabata. We rest for 30 seconds then move to the next Tabata. Classes are constructed with 10 Tabatas alternating between cardio and strength. Supportive shoes, light weights, and a bottle of water are recommended. The magic of this class is that crossing between aerobic and anaerobic intervals results in your body continuing to burn calories after the class has ended. If you have a kid or grandkid who does Tabata and is exhausted and wrecked, don't worry. We won't be doing intense plyometric moves. This is something YOU can do!
Barre is a class that focuses on strength, toning, flexibility and balance. It is not a ballet or dance class. You'll need a chair without wheels to act as your barre during the class. If you have a set of 2, 3, or 5lb dumbbells and a 6 or 9 inch pilates ball, bring them. If not, we'll make do with whatever you have around the house.
Pop Music Pilates Core & Stretch is a beginner's Mat Pilates class. What makes this class different? Music! We finish the class with great stretching and myofascial message. No experience is necessary. A mat, a towel and a bottle of water are recommended.
Recover, Stretch, Thrive a class to recover from exercising or from life in general. We'll do some range of motion, stretching, and Myofascial release. Everything on our body has a container, a thin layer of tissue. It's called 'fascia'. It covers our organs, bones, muscles and nerves. Its purpose is to keep everything in the right place. We'll be using a tennis ball to aid in Myofascial release.
Please discuss these class formats with your doctor prior to attending classes. If you have questions or need accomodations, feel free to email me at FitnessIsForever@mail.com.
