Pulse Fitness Studio's students finesse footwork in daily classes set in a sun-drenched studio built for specifically for dance. As an overhead sound system cues up international tunes, Zumba students step into a party-like class atmosphere where an instructor demonstrates the fat-burning shimmies of Latin-inspired choreography. Pulse's varied Zumba curriculum also includes Zumba Toning, Zumba 101 for first-timers, and Zumba Gold, where instructors take the dance steps' intensity down a peg for those with physical limitations. Using further dance-hall inspiration, hip-hop boot camp coalesces funky cardio with resistance training facilitated by weighted boom boxes. Wind down rhythm-fatigued muscles in yoga or Yoga-lates sessions, which combine the core whittling of Pilates with stretch- and flexibility-centric yoga poses.
For students looking to build muscle and strength, coaches turn fitness routines into fun, engaging workouts that students can look forward to, with everything from high-energy boot camps that build endurance with military exercises to toning, tightening T-n-T courses designed to firm up cores and glutes.
