After considering that the traditional health club model doesn't really work for many people, a group of fitness industry veterans decided to do something about it. They started Fitness 19. It's a simple concept—a gym with cardio, strength, and free weight equipment—but in a family-friendly atmosphere without the traditional high costs of many gyms. Members get in shape using state-of-the-art equipment or working one-on-one with Fitness 19's personal trainers. Meanwhile, parents can work out peacefully as the kids play in the Kids Room, staffed by professionals who keep kiddos aged 3 months to 11 years entertained and safe.
After 700 hours of training, the instructors of Bikram's Yoga College at Westminster and Longmont each received their certification from Bikram Yoga's founder, Bikram Choudhury. The team's collective expertise ensures students can safely execute Bikram's 26 circulation-boosting poses and two breathing exercises. During group or private classes, they'll help each student to transition from one stance to another as the studio's heating system incites greater flexibility and a detoxifying sweat. They cultivate a judgment-free atmosphere, welcoming participation from those with no prior yoga or volcano-spelunking experience.
The two Colorado studios host their sessions beneath 10- and 11.5-foot ceilings to foster a spaciously steamy setting. An onsite retail store equips patrons with gear, and a board-certified massage therapist ousts any lingering limb tension with a massage.

Pro Tip: If you are new to Zumba, please arrive 10 minutes early so you can get acclimated.
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We keep clients motivated by providing a fun, party-like environment and by changing our routines every three weeks, so there is always something new.
Do you believe in the maxim, "No pain, no gain”? Why or why not?
No, because Zumba is exercising in disguise. No one suffers because it's a party, but at the same time, we're getting an intense workout. People come for the party at first, but they keep coming back for the results they get.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
In Zumba, the music motivates and inspires participants. My class mixes all kinds of rhythms from all over the world to keep everyone exited and to keep them coming back.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We offer a Zumba Beginners Workshop once a month. It is designed for new students who have never done Zumba before, or for those who have come to class and felt lost. You will learn basic steps and combinations for various Latin rhythms, including salsa, cumbia, merengue, reggaeton, and cha cha. We break down each style so that you can get comfortable with the movement, and then we put it all together. The cost os $15 in advance, or $20 at the door.
