Latin dance was a standard battle tactic in the ancient Roman military, whose soldiers would shimmy, merengue, and cha-cha with booty-shaking abandon until their terrified foes fled for their lives. Get in similar fighting form with today's deal: for $39, you get one month of unlimited Zumba classes (an $80 value) from b.fab.fitness (formerly Zumba with Rebecca). Classes are available at the Nashville Dance Center in Green Hills and the A-Game Sportsplex in Franklin. This Groupon is only valid through May 31, meaning you must begin your month by May 1.
Zumba is a raging fitness megasaurus that unites Latin dance rhythms with high-energy movements—creating a fitness program that exiles calories, perks up listless muscles, and scandalizes dull exercise routines. Instructor Rebecca Hinton has been teaching Zumba since 2008; her classes have since grown so popular that she expanded into b.fab.fitness and formed a veritable coven of Zumba fanatics with four other instructors. Their dance-inspired routines work every major body muscle and keep hearts thumping to the beat, all without the monotonous drudgery of treadmills, stationary bikes, and boulder-stacking.
Sloughing off stress and excess body weight to the quick beat of Latin dance tunes is an excellent way for existing friends to bond, while the camaraderie and cheer found in Rebecca's Zumba classes inspire new friendships to flourish with the speed of a German-engineered time machine. Check the b.fab.fitness schedule for class times, including convenient morning and evening sessions.
