With 15 instructional DVDs and a slew of international workshops on his resume, Eric ?El Cubanito? Freeman is a master of salsa dancing. But what really sets him apart is his passion. He is constantly on the go learning new techniques, whether jetting off to Cuba to master their style of salsa, taking ballet lessons to approach salsa from a different angle, or writing a thesis on why the Macarena is so popular at weddings. Throughout his busy schedule, he always manages to lead his full roster of salsa classes, which range from beginner?s steps and learning the rhythm to advanced classes which cover a new style of salsa with every new class. If clients want help with the moves of his New York, Los Angeles, Cuban Casino, or Cumbia style moves, he also leads private lessons that speed up the learning process.
Nobody should have to suffer through a workout, say the fitness pros who helm Studio Thrive. So, to make exercise as enjoyable as possible, they design group classes that are fun, social, and suitable for all skill levels. Most instructors bring an extensive dance background to the classroom, filling classes such as Zumba and TRX. Personal-training sessions often center on functional-training tools such as TRX suspension straps and kettlebells, both of which foster flexibility and core strength. In addition to designing highly customized workouts, certified personal trainers perform body-composition analyses and fitness assessments to track their clients' progress.
When they're not leading classes or personal-training sessions, Studio Thrive's staffers host private Zumba parties in the spacious studio, lined with oversize mirrors, a polished wooden floor, and a cobalt-blue ceiling. Upon request, they can also bring Zumba sessions to offices, apartment buildings, or painfully quiet libraries.
