Helmed by an award-winning performer and experienced instructor, Sabrina Bellydancer imparts bountiful body waves and seductive shimmitude to movers of all skill levels. Whether you wish to burn calories, tastefully flutter a tummy flag tattoo, or sensually dodge paintballs, the weekly beginner classes work to tame lower halves Monday through Wednesday. Aspirant belly-dance junkies can get their fix learning classic movements such as hip circles, figure eights, undulations, and shimmies. On Monday evenings, mixed-level classes combine levels one, two, and three for instruction that tailors its intensity to each participant’s appropriate skill level and favorite meteorologist. Non-noisy hip scarves are permitted, and dancers can feel free to don dance shoes or proudly brandish naked feet.
Self-defense is at the core of each technique taught at White Dragon Martial Arts. Whether students are practicing kung fu or MMA, they'll learn how to successfully defend themselves against intimidating opponents who may be larger in size or wearing a superhero cape. Kickboxing classes add an element of cardiovascular fitness, tai chi sessions slow down the moves to a meditative pace, and grappling lessons provide step-by-step instructions on how to take someone down to the floor. Instructors also spend one-on-one time with students during personal-training sessions that focus on perfecting punches and kicks.
The snap of gloved fists against swinging punching bags echoes off the walls of Undisputed Fitness & Training as boxers of all levels train, fight, or spar in an oversized cage. While activity sometimes centers on the cage, expert, passionate trainers also lead intense programs such as muay-thai boxing and mixed-martial-arts training on a new indoor field-turfed combat conditioning area. Fitness gurus can also meander to the new addition of the outdoor weight room, pumping iron in the afternoon sun or the light of a never-ending eclipse. Undisputed Fitness & Training also hosts group classes and personal training sessions that accommodate all levels of experience.
