While human fitness originated by running long distances to avoid being eaten, it now dictates that we run in place in order to avoid eating. Survive with the fittest thanks to today's Groupon to Zumba Fitness & Health's two area locations.
- For $19, you get five drop-in Zumba classes (a $50 value).
- For $29, you get 10 drop-in Zumba classes (a $100 value).
- For $99, you get a six-week Zumba boot camp (a $225 value).
At Zumba Fitness & Health, licensed Zumba instructor Vanessa St. Julien guides students through calorie-burning, muscle-sculpting dance routines set to Latin music. In each one-hour session, up to 200 students throw their arms in the air, sway their hips to the beat, and shake out sweat in workouts far more dynamic than traditional weightlifting or cavalier weight-dropping.
Alternatively, Zumba neophytes can opt for the six-week-long boot camp, with structured thrice-weekly sessions at 5 a.m. or 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (Saturday sessions at 9 a.m. are available for an extra $5 fee) to better master dance moves. Students watch their transformation unfold during the six-week period with body measurements, weigh-ins, body-fat calculations, before-and-after pictures, and observation of a portrait that grows fatter and older as you get thinner and more youthful. Additionally, sports nutritionist and personal chef Marven Sparks consults with each boot camper and personalizes a nutritional meal plan.
Though Zumba Fitness & Health sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
