W.O.W. Fitness’s certified personal trainers and instructors shimmy alongside students during high-intensity Zumba dance classes that melt away unwelcome calories. As a medley of Latin-inspired music sets off internal metronomes, attendees learn intuitive dance steps that blend into a dynamic cardio workout. The instructors follow the gym’s motto and declare a “war on weight” in the classes, which set tickers pumping while patrons whittle waists, tone calves, and strengthen cores. The mirrors lining the lime-green walls of the facility help patrons ensure that their kicks are high, their frames are strong, and their hair isn’t on fire. Classes are Monday–Thursday at 6 p.m.
Certified trainer and W.O.W. Fitness founder Kameelah Harris was never into athletics. But she did want to live a long and healthy life, so she enlisted the services of a personal trainer. The transformation she witnessed was beyond anything she ever imagined. It was this intense personal experience that opened her eyes to a greater social epidemic: obesity. That’s when she decided to begin her war on excess weight, and W.O.W. was born.
Kameelah’s fitness programs emphasize functional strength training with a focus on proper form and stability. These principles are carried out in personal-training sessions and Zumba classes performed with a host of free weights, stability balls, ellipticals, and heavy bagpipes. In addition to fitness training, Kameelah and her team assist students with diet plans and lifestyle coaching.
