What makes "Zumba Toning" different from other "Zumba" classes?

In a nutshell, the main difference between regular Zumba & Zumba Toning is the addition and focus on strength training exercises within the dances, as well as the addition of "toning sticks." This type of class is even more aerobic and challenging than regular Zumba, and focuses on circuit training to maximize calorie burn. You'll have3 loads of fun and see fast results!

Students can bring their own toning sticks or purchase toning sticks directly from their instructor in class. 1 pound weights are $20 and 2.5 pound weights are $25. Unlike regular weights, Zumba Toning Sticks have flowing sand inside which allows you to shake the weight without jarring your body. They are soft (easy to hold on to) and make a sound like a maraca when you shake them, which adds to the fun! These light-weight sticks help you focus on specific muscle groups and enhance your sense of rhythm while toning target zones including arms, core and lower body. Students are also welcome to bring their own reglar weights, which may not exceed 3 pounds.

We do accept student Zumba discount 10-passes for this class.
