Dance based workout classes have become extremely popular over the last few years. Along with Belly dancing, K-pop and Hip-hop; Zumba is one of the many dance classes available to GuavaPass members. With a slightly different format but still keeping all the fun of a Zumba class, Studio La Vie runs Zumba in the Circuit. The challenging 60-minute combination of dance, circuit and HIIT training targets specific muscles and keeps your blood pumping. Located on the East Coast, Studio La Vie is a great single room studio with a team that will be sure to put a smile on your face with their crazy enthusiasm for every class.
All levels welcome!
Coming in as a beginner to Zumba, I was a bit apprehensive to the style of dancing it usually involves. But our instructor Sophia quickly changed that. She was nothing short of the funniest and most expressive teacher I’ve had. I wasn’t the only newbie to the class but she made everyone feel equally welcome.
Circuit training + Zumba
The class had all experience levels with a great range of ages and dancing abilities. Zumba in the Circuit began with the instructor running everyone through some basic Zumba movements for a 10-minute warm up. Afterward, the room is split up into a circuit including lunges, sit-ups and light-weight arm exercises of which the class completed for a 1 minute in each area then followed by 1 minute of Zumba, for a number of rounds.
By using both cardio and resistance training, this type of workout is one of the most effective for fat loss and overall body toning. By far the best part of the class had to be our instructor Sophia – a good instructor makes a great workout, but a great instructor makes you forget you’re working out at all. Studio La Vie also runs classes like Zumba Fitness, KickFit, Hot Hula Fitness, Piloxing and more, giving you a great range of cardio-based classes to select from.
