Varying one's workouts often proves more motivating than the tedium of always jogging on a treadmill or always sprinting away from bears. Mix it up with today's Groupon: for $32, you get five Zumba classes at M Dance & Fitness (a $65 value), valid at six participating New York locations. This Groupon may also be redeemed for any other classes on the schedule.
Armed with decades of dance experience each, the instructors at M Dance & Fitness lead classes in heart-pumping Zumba routines that sculpt physiques with dance-party attitude. Salsa, pop, reggaeton, and other international moves combine as students of all fitness levels sweat during easy-to-follow routines in high-energy sessions. As hips swivel and abs tango with obliques, bodies can potentially burn more than 500 calories during one-hour lessons, scheduled multiple times weekly. With other classes such as Hip Hop Fitness, Be Ballet Buff, and Rhythm Core, the studio welcomes fit-seekers of all levels, and, as Melissa Davison of NBC's Go Healthy New York reported, "egos are checked at the door and you will learn as you go," after a shimmy session with M Dance & Fitness.
M Dance & Fitness
Zumba classes at M Dance & Fitness provide a hip-shaking workout so engrossing that, according to Time Out New York, students barely notice its rigor until they’re sore the next day. Set to music that ranges from pop to reggaeton, classes work the whole body through simple dance steps from schools such as salsa and merengue.
The studio’s Masala Bhangra class replaces Zumba’s Latin flair with Indian moves. Masala means “spicy” in Hindi; the routines are thus a “spicy,” or Bollywood-inflected, take on Bhangra, a traditional Indian folkdance. Studio founder Misty Clark and her team of instructors helm other dance fitness classes as well, with focuses such as ballet, kick-box dance, hip-hop, and ab work.
