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.
