This class is all about having fun as we listen to a variety of music meant to put a smile on your face as you do your workout!

WARM UP

Like all fitness classes, a warm up is so important!  We start the class with simple movement exercises like marching in place to the music to get a nice slow warm up.  The warm up continues into a second song as we follow some simple dance steps to get our heart pumping and ready for the rest of the class.

We continue our warm up doing some nice stretching to loosen things up and work out any stiffness in our bodies.  Now we are ready for the next part of our class!  

LETS GET MOVING!

The upbeat music kicks in as we get moving.  You can easily workout within a small space while we do salsa dancing types movements…moving side to side, front and back as we listen to the music.

We increase our pass with some fun line dancing type moves that slowly increase our heart rate and ready for an hour long class of fun!

FLEXIBILITY & BALANCE

Then, we slow things down as we do slower range of motion movements that help us to work on our flexibility and balance.

CARDIO, FLEXIBILITY, BALANCE & CORE

We spend the rest of the class doing this cycle of upbeat, then more upbeat and back to a slower song

Our goals…to work our cardio, reach our target heart rate, build our stamina and then slow things down to work on our flexibility, balance and core.  

COOL DOWN

We end the class with a very slow cool down.  Slow larger and gentle movements help us bring our heart rate back down and slowly cool down our muscles.  And finally, we go into our final stretching to release any tension from our muscles and relax our bodies as we get ready for the rest of our day.
