Dance-fitness fusions have been all the rage since the early ‘60s, when Beatlemania Ab Blaster took America by storm. Energize with the fusion of the future and today's Groupon: for $25, you get five Zumba classes from Studio Fit in Kemah (a $50 value).
Studio Fit grooves clients toward fitness goals with Zumba, an invigorating, Latin-inspired dance workout. Led by certified fitness professional Marcy Jo Taylor, Studio Fit's Zumba burns calories while pleasing the dance-inexperienced with simple, easy-to-follow moves. Zumba borrows strengthening and body-leaning moves from the likes of salsa, meringue, samba, tango, and other dance styles, targeting every major muscle group for a peerless cardio workout.
Pounding beats, a party-like atmosphere, and the motivation received from sweating it out in a small-class setting—five to 10 people per class—keep the sessions fun. Giant, mounted mirrors reflect smooth moves, and the brand-new studio with popping red walls provides plenty of space for clients to shake hips, shoulders, and giant fruit hats with abandon.
