Mark and Dorie Wexler—along with a talented staff of multicultural instructors—enthusiastically spread the irresistible rhythm of Latin beats through their signature Zumba fitness and salsa classes, earning their location the title of Best Dance Studio from Colorado Springs Independent in 2013 as well as Best Adult Dance Studio from the Gazette in 2014. The Wexlers view dance as a form of fitness rather than one of competition, allowing students to enjoy themselves and experiment without the fear of being rated or punched in the knees by ornery judges.
At Elevation Fitness, members embrace the center's name by elevating their workout regimen, whether they're enhancing an existing routine or beginning from scratch. Luckily, they can rely on the gym's staff of fitness experts, who are on hand for personal training sessions and group workouts. During one-on-one sessions, a trainer and member create goals, such as losing weight or running a marathon, then tailor a workout to tackle those goals. During Group X classes including yoga, spin, and Zumba, teachers encourage proper form, caloric burn, and camaraderie. Trainers helming Cross Fit workouts encourage the same things thanks to high-intensity workouts that change each day, challenging participants to push both themselves and their cohorts.
The Fitness Factory of Colorado Springs bases its workouts on the simple idea that people can have fun and get a rigorous cardio workout at the same time. Bumping Latin and international tunes set a dance-party rhythm in the studio’s Zumba classes that blend cha-cha, salsa, reggaeton, rumba, and other dance styles to create high-energy routines. The beginner-friendly courses range from traditional Zumba to Zumba Toning sessions, designed to sculpt specific muscles, and Zumba Gold, aimed at exercise newbies. Yoga sessions and hip-hop lessons complement the core of Zumba offerings. Students can sample four different styles at the Saturday Morning Mixer, where they can select their own workouts from 30-minute mini-classes rather than cobbling together an entire gym from used shoes.
By the end of her first Zumba class, Emy Manos was hooked. The fitness enthusiast began to attend as many as three classes a day and eventually went on to earn her Zumba instructor certification. Today she brings her dedication and years of experience to her own studio—Dance Fitness with Emy. She welcomes fitness seekers of all abilities into the colorful space, where she leads her students through lively Latin dance-inspired workouts amid upbeat international tunes. On Fridays, Emy hosts Club Zumba, a party class, complete with dancing and disco lights.
When Dave Solon Kia needed a choreographer to create routines for its touring "Hamstars" mascots, it turned to Joseph Cantu. A master of hip-hop dance—from the pop and lock to krumping—Joseph incorporated some of his freshest moves into the Hamstars show, which was performed on Fox and at several Colorado Springs high schools. At J & J Hip Hop Dance Instruction, Joseph teaches the same dance styles to beginning and intermediate students, who hone skills such as breaking, tutting, and sliding.
