In Zumba classes, dancers move to Latin-based rhythms and music, shaking their hips and performing cardiovascular dance moves more fun than the power-walking man.
Core Fusion Fitness models its facility after a day spa, from its chic aesthetic to its mix of private and shared spaces. Instead of manicure stations and private treatment rooms, however, there’s a room with Pilates machines, a space for stationary bikes, an open gym area with punching bags and a boxing ring, and a spacious studio with high ceilings to facilitate dumbbell juggling.
