Agonizing tasks, such as working out, waiting in line for the bathroom, and appearing in court, are all more enjoyable when dancing. Zest up an everyday hustle with today's Groupon: for $10, you get three Zumba classes from Zumba with Joanne at The Elliott Community in Guelph (a $30 value).
Licensed instructor Joanne O'Grady of Zumba with Joanne tones torsos with Latin-inspired dance aerobics fit for all body sizes and skill levels. Borrowing beats and steps from salsa and reggaeton, classes (a $10 value/class) burn down calories like a dragon at a snow-cone stand. Each session spans one hour to maximize time spent increasing heart rates, resisting episodes of Degrassi, and exploring accessible dance grooves. The Elliott Community classes hold court Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6–7 p.m., and Saturday mornings from 10:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m. to conveniently de-stress after typing thoughts into Wikipedia.
Zumba with Joanne
On a sprung dance floor, Joanne O'Grady leads groups through a series of Zumba dance moves set to upbeat Latin, international, and pop music. Zumba Toning classes add "toning sticks" or hand weights to the mix, helping students burn extra calories and tone their whole body. The high-octane workouts can burn up to 800 calories per hour, and aim to help students have fun while getting a full-body workout.
