Body Fun Fitness’s owners, Melanie Hendershot and Debbie Mann, are passionate about fitness, a passion that manifests itself in a roster of high-energy classes that disguise heart-pumping exercise in fun alternative workouts. Melanie, Debbie, and their troupe of certified instructors demonstrate easy-to-follow latin dance moves during Zumba classes. Or, the team and its students shake hips along to live polynesian drumbeats during Hot Hula fitness classes. Since Melanie also believes in infusing exercise with joy early on in life, she leads a variety of kids' fitness classes that mask workouts in playtime like wearing no makeup masks the work of being a clown.
