Zumba Fitness New Jersey's licensed head instructor Melissa Marcketta and her enthusiastic staff lead over thirty light-hearted, hip-swiveling Latin dance workouts per week across five locations. During one-hour Zumba with Zumba Toning classes, students become acquainted with pulse-pounding dance moves and strength training exercises that create physiques as tight and toned as a bass drum crafted from recycled Tarzan posters. The calorie-crushing combination of aerobic gyrations and shimmy-infused strength training is accessible for all ability levels. The studio employs multiple instructors to ensure varied workouts, eclectic soundtracks, and a spectrum of opinions surrounding the optimal peanut-butter-to-broccoli ratio for a postworkout sandwich.

Image 2000 isn’t kidding around with its goal to have the best programs for women's fitness. A tour of the gym reveals an advanced cardio fitness room where each machine has its own LCD TV, a huge calendar of aerobics classes taught by professionals, and a diverse selection of classes ranging from Pilates and yoga to Zumba and free-weight sessions. An onsite kids’ area is equipped with video games and entertainment to occupy little minds while their parents work out.
For clients who need a break after a workout, Image 2000's spa has a menu of relaxing massages, soothing facials, and professional makeup services to make faces look as toned as quads and vestigial underbiceps.
Rather than exercise alone on a cardio machine, students at Zumba With Chrissy & Gina torch calories together as they follow a Latin-inspired dance routine. Chrissy and Gina set their choreography to fast-paced international tracks, creating a fiesta-like atmosphere that spurs participants through each workout. The energetic duo leads Zumba lessons up to four days a week, even holding sessions outdoors whenever meteorologists request a rain dance.
At Viva Z Club, Z stands for Zumba. The dance fitness class that pairs easy-to-follow moves with Latin rhythms feels more like a night out on the town than a workout, like doing squats in a strobe-lit room. That's because it encourages students to sway, shimmy, and jump to catchy music as they also burn calories and tighten core muscles. And although Viva Z Club's main focus is Zumba, it's not the only class type offered. Barre-Lates blends a ballet barre workout with Pilates to strengthen and tone, and Nia creates a medley of martial arts, dance, and yoga for a gentle but effective workout.
No Body Denied—that’s what the NBD in NBD Training Zone for Women stands for. An offshoot of NBD Fitness in Springfield, the facility was started as a place where ladies could come to transform their lifestyles, improve their physique, or boost their confidence amongst a community of like-minded people. The instructors lead 60 group fitness classes each week, a diverse array of exercise methods that includes everything from TRX and spinning to yoga and Pilates. The Pilates reformer sessions are designated for small groups; if you need some personal attention or are afraid you’ll yell your ATM pin number during exercise, the studio offers private personal training sessions.
