The team at ReggaeFit has more in common than the fact that they're all experienced instructors. Each woman has been dancing her entire life. A co-owner of ReggaeFit, Rachel has studied everything from ballet and tap to hip-hop and jazz. Now, she finds herself uniting exercisers under a banner of red, yellow, and green.
The instructors lead ReggaeFit workouts that get bodies moving to the infectious rhythms of reggae and soca music. During every class, they combine light, high-energy aerobics with Caribbean dance moves, motivating women and men alike to shake, shimmy, and groove along with the beats. The facility doesn't forget about younger visitors, either. Kids' classes take groups through a range of slower ska tunes and faster soca rhythms so kids can keep up at school dances when the DJ loses control of the tempo button.
