During Zumba classes, certified instructor Granita Young cranks up exotic rhythms and leads students through energetic dance movements. Students in Zumba Toning sessions use maraca-like weights to build strength, sculpt muscles, and improve balance.
Certified Bokwa instructor Amy has students draw letters and numbers with their feet while completing an upbeat cardio workout. Pound instructor Dana, on the other hand, gives students a pair of neon drumsticks called Ripstix and encourages them to drum their ways through the class's Pilates, plyometric, and Yoga movements.
You might not have guessed it if you saw the trim, muscular, and infectiously energetic Zumba instructor today, but there was a time when Granita Young was overweight. She enrolled in Zumba classes hoping to get into shape and was immediately grabbed by the lively music and the spirit-lifting dance routines. It wasn’t long before Granita had shed her excess pounds, earned her instructor certification, and began leading Zumba classes of her own.
Nowadays, at NZ Fitness, the seasoned instructor and her staff guide students of all abilities through Zumba and other energy-infused dance fitness classes. To supplement their skills, the team draws on a range of gear that includes maraca-like hand weights and Ripstix to build strength and sculpt muscles. Equally important to Granita and company is maintaining a non-judgmental environment and keeping class sizes personal and not overly crowded.
