Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon for Zumba classes at Christine’s Cardio Fitness, held in the basement of the Battery Park Senior Apartments. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get 10 Zumba classes (a $70 value).
- For $49, you get 20 Zumba classes (a $140 value).<p>
The spirited instructors at Christine’s Cardio Fitness melt calories and stress at more than 20 weekly Zumba classes. Inspired by the salsa, merengue, and cumbia, each 60-minute cardio-dance routine raises heart rates with joyful hip swivels and music more rhythmic than a drum kit preparing popcorn. To tone thighs and calves, many sessions incorporate strength-training exercises such as squats and lunges. Unlike a movie with Klingon subtitles, Zumba choreography is easy to follow, making the workouts accessible to students of all levels.
Today’s Groupon may be used for any type of Zumba class, including gently paced Gold classes for older adults and fun-filled Toning sessions, which sculpt muscles with maraca-shaped toning sticks. Aqua-blue paint energizes Christine’s 2,200-square-foot workout space, and mirror-free walls dissolve inhibitions. Students should wear athletic shoes to each class along with comfy duds such as T-shirts, shorts, and sweatbands made of freshly laundered clouds.
Christine’s Cardio Fitness
While Christine smiles every time a client announces another drop in pant size, she is more proud of helping people lower their blood pressure levels and stabilize their blood sugar levels. Motivating people to transform their health on the inside versus how they look on the outside is why Christine opened her own fitness studio, Christine’s Cardio Fitness. She and a crew of certified Zumba instructors help students dance their way into better health with easy-to-follow routines set to high-energy tunes and yodelers in classes like Zumba Fitness, Zumba Toning, Zumba Sentao, Zumba Step, and Zumba Gold. Not wanting anyone to miss out on the fun of Zumba, Christine also offers a free class on Saturdays for kids during the summer months.
