"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with today's Groupon: for $20, you get eight drop-in Zumba classes at Zumba with Carmen at Plex Indoor Sports on Fashion Drive (a $43 value).
One-hour Zumba classes tone bodies to the dynamic rhythms of Latin-inspired dance beats, enticing students of all skill levels to swing their hips and shrug off sluggish calories during the easy-to-master foot-flinging fiesta. Carmen pumps up dance routines, which borrow from styles such as salsa and merengue, with a pulsing pop soundtrack designed to drown out inhibitions and encourage dynamic, exciting workouts. Two-stepping across the fine line that separates exercise from all-out merrymaking, Carmen’s routine can burn up to 1,000 calories in a single session of hip-hopping and boot-scooting. A convenient schedule and supportive group environment make getting in shape as simple as threading a hula hoop.
Zumba with Carmen
The upbeat sounds of Latin and pop music can regularly be heard inside the Killian Recreation Center. That's because certified Zumba instructor Carmen stages Zumba classes there three times a week, creating a lively atmosphere by using tunes from artists like Beyonce, Rihanna, and Pitbull along with Latin, salsa, and merengue jams. The fun, high-energy sessions combine elements of fitness and dance to create a workout that burns calories and melts them down into commemorative coins.
