A good workout regimen provides the courage needed to march back into the office, take the clown nose off, and demand a smaller, funnier car. Fill oversized shoes with self-confidence with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a five-class pass for Zumba or yoga classes at ZFit Studio in Fenton (a $40 value).
ZFit Studios' committed, licensed instructors give women of all ages and fitness levels an opportunity to both sweat and spice up stale exercise regimens with fun and energetic workouts. By blending hypnotic Latin rhythms with easy-to-follow moves, Zumba motivates students to booty-shake away as many as 700 calories in each 60-minute session. Intervals of fast and slow movements keep dancers engaged as they tone their bodies until they're able to roundhouse kick through a telephone pole. Meanwhile, 60-minute hot yoga classes guide students through assorted poses that boast the flexing benefits of yoga with the added fat-melting power of the heated space. As the room warms up to a sweltering 85 to 90 degrees, benders will be able to move deeper into postures, lengthening muscles, improving range of motion, and clearing minds of old Sega cheat codes.
There are generally about 15–40 people per class, so peruse the class schedule to plan ahead. First-timers need to print out the waiver and registration forms found here before showing up a few minutes early to their classes. Some classes require students to bring items such as a mat, towel, or crowd of adoring fans.
The sound of thumping bass greets guests at ZFit Studio, where instructors lead a slew of high-energy fitness classes. Sessions are overseen by a diverse staff of experienced instructors who boast backgrounds in dancing, yoga, and Zumba instruction. Outdoors or on their gleaming studio's hardwood floors, instructors lead a variety of heart-pumping classes, including Latin-dance-infused Zumba workouts and energizing yoga sessions. To keep their patrons engaged in exercising, they strive to develop workouts that are both fitness enhancing and exciting, much like doing arm curls while skydiving.
