The Fitness Studio’s certified instructors shimmy and shake as they lead students through a series of twists, turns, and hops during 45-minute Zumba dance classes and 40-minute Pilates stretch sessions. During a fat-zapping Zumba jam, svelteness-seekers mimic the instructor’s choreography and step and slide to the percolating beats of Latin rhythms like spandexed pros, all while toning muscles and torching calories. Alternatively, waist-wigglers can slink into a Pilates mat class to stretch backs and tone tummies through a series of smooth and controlled movements. After the class, Pilates pupils often feel flexible and energized enough to go to the nearest middle school to dominate the Presidential Challenge fitness test.
The Fitness Studio
Though the 12 instructors come from diverse backgrounds—one is a teacher, one is a choreographer for Bollywood dances, and another is a mother of three—they’re all united by a common passion: fitness. Pulling from certifications in variety of disciplines, including Zumba, PiYo, and yoga, the energetic coaches lead a variety of group fitness classes and personal-training sessions. Vibrant music reverberates against the bamboo floors and mirrored walls of their 3,000-square-foot studio as the instructors conduct Zumba, boot-camp, and Turbo Kick workouts. Other days, they take students to indoor and outdoor pools for aqua Zumba and aqua Fit sessions, only canceling classes on those rare occasions when lightning warnings are issued or the universe collapses in on itself.
