Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get 10 Zumba, Dance Jam, or fitness classes from Dance Jam Fitness at Elevated Dance Project Studio in Eagle (a $70 value).
Elevated Dance Project Studio leader and certified Zumba instructor Kelly Anderson's easy-to-copy torso twists and hip shakes help fit seekers demolish fat in calorie-torching dance-fitness classes. During cardio-focused Zumba sessions, Latin rhythms pound through bodies as dance-party aerobic exercises pump hearts at escalated rates and burn up to 850 calories per sweat session. Kelly's Zumba classes teach the fast-paced twists and turns of salsa, merengue, cumbia, and samba, and how to saucily shimmy your way to the front of the DMV line.
Dancers can also hobnob in the Dance Jam class, which enhances Zumba by including a wider selection of musical stylings and employs props such as scarves, balls, and towels. Two core, strength, and flexibility classes forgo dancing to take advantage of strength-training equipment including dumbbells, balls, and resistance bands. Housed in an intimate dance studio, Elevated Dance Project Studio's personalized instruction and fun, upbeat atmosphere encourage students to loosen up enough that they don't care how they look or that their alter ego is setting fire to their hair.

Dance instructor Kelly Anderson didn't always like to exercise. But 10 years ago, at the behest of a friend, the mother of five attended her first cardio dance class and was thrilled to discover that exercise could be fun—as long as it was treated as though it were a party. Eager to share her passion and weight-loss tips with others, Kelly helms Dance Jam Fitness, where each class she teaches is a fun, energetic shindig complete with hip-shaking tunes plus moves dedicated to sculpting muscles and building one's power to ignore come-hither stares from donuts. In addition to her class schedule, Kelly hosts motivational events throughout the year that help participants lead healthier lifestyles.
