The instructors of Cherise’s Heavenly Fitness structure their lessons to adhere to the club slogan, “Where friendships are made and bodies are changed.” Instructors, including AFAA-certified Kelli Durrance, believe that when people have fun at the gym, they're more likely to continue their fitness regime (plus a little fun during exercise never hurt anyone). Whether sweating in a Zumba class, strengthening in a yoga session, or bench-pressing legal documents in a boot-camp class, students are surrounded by like-minded folk ready to slim their torsos and share a smile.
With his forays into acting and politics, many people forget that Arnold Schwarzenegger was once a professional body builder and former Mr. Universe. Arnold Kolozsvari didn't forget?it was Schwarzenegger's superhero-like physique that influenced him to join the world of fitness training in the first place. Born in Hungary, Kolozsvari competed in the body-building sphere in Romania, armed with nothing but the diligence, drive, and metallic Skynet endoskeleton he borrowed from his idol Schwarzenegger. Fueled by a desire to train others, he eventually made his way to the United States, where he teamed up with the Revive?s other half, Danny Legault, a 13-year hockey veteran who devoted seven years of service to the United States Marine Corps. The duo joined forces and opened up their own fitness center, where they?ve since trained a client base that includes the Bethune-Cookman University baseball team and numerous Miss Florida and Miss America pageant contestants.
Kolozsvari and Legault happily adapt the functional movements in their boot camps and group cardio classes to suit students of any skill level, age, or physical ability, welcoming anyone ranging from teen athletes to senior citizens. To offer a rounded approach to physical fitness and overall well-being, they can also supplement group workouts with nutritional plans and one-on-one personal-training sessions.
A diverse and happening playlist welcomes students into Susan Sloan?s Zumba classes. She hopes her students feel like they are at a party while sweating away calories with catchy dance moves. Each session aims to burn calories, sculpt muscles, and perfect the Hokey Pokey.
The instructors at Rumba Fitness pair Zumba's Latin-inspired dance steps with international music seven days a week. With a total of 17 classes, they range from no-frills dance-party workouts to Zumba Toning. The latter blends cardio and resistance exercises with lightweight, maraca-shaped hand weights to chisel muscles.
In lieu of weights, Zumba Sentao increases the challenge by incorporating a chair as a kind of dance partner that facilitate squats and never gets fresh like most other chairs. Rumba Fitness also features a kids' lounge, where children four or older can play while their parents dance.
