ZUMBA

Zumba is an energizing fitness class that combines dance and fitness moves. Inspired by Latin dance and music, Zumba uses a variety of styles in its routines, including Cumbia, Merengue, Salsa, Reggaeton, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco, and a Hip Hop.

Music selections include both fast and slow rhythms to help tone and sculpt the body.  A fun filled hour giving you everything you need to help you feel great and look good. Add to that a super boost of motivation, positivity and friendship and your week is sorted. It’s for everyone! All shapes sizes, ages and abilities. 

What is Piloxing?

Piloxing is a group exercise class that blends Pilates, boxing and dance. It’s a high-energy interval workout that involves heart-pumping, powerful boxing combinations and sculpting and lengthening Pilates-influenced movements. In classes you wear weighted gloves to add extra resistance.

What is the appeal?

It’s a highly motivating workout with fast-paced music and fun moves. The fusion of boxing, Pilates and dance means that you are never stuck doing any exercise for long as the class keeps flowing. All moves can be tailored to accommodate people of different fitness levels, so everyone gets a great workout. As the instructor, I change the choreography and music regularly, helping to keep the class fresh. As with most forms of exercise, the endorphin rush following a class is huge. Many of my participants have been coming to Piloxing for years and find that it still continues to improve their fitness and stamina.

Why is it good for you?

The benefits of Pilates include longer, leaner muscles, improved flexibility and strength, better control, coordination, and endurance throughout the entire body. The benefits of boxing are chiselled arms, a defined back and a fabulous sense of letting off steam and releasing tension. And who doesn’t love the emotional high that comes from moving to the rhythm with others while torching calories?

It’s for everyone! All shapes sizes, ages and abilities.
