A few years back, Trudy Marchetti watched a loved one struggle with a serious heart condition and the difficult recovery that followed. The experience changed Trudy's views on fitness, and led her to reexamine her own exercise habits. In 2008, Trudy became a certified Zumba instructor. Today, she owns e'Studio Z Fitness, where she leads groups through Zumba's exotic dance moves set to Latin and international beats. But Trudy makes sure e'Studio Z Fitness isn't limited to just Zumba. Exercisers can also keep their workout routines fresh by using the facility's TRX suspension training or by teaming up with a personal trainer.
Certified personal trainers at dlux Training flex their mental muscles to devise one-on-one workout programs that maximize results, economize time, and protect joints and muscles from injury. Each 20-minute workout combines slow cadences with a high-intensity range of strength-training exercises to deliver results regardless of one’s age, fitness level, or sports-team preference. Trainers design each exercise to pose a deep challenge to the body’s muscles, forcing them to shake off their somnolence and add kindling to the steadily growing muscle fire.
