Zumba at The Ridge

Workouts don’t have to be a chore. In fact, workouts don’t have to feel like workouts at all. With Zumba, a workout isn’t even a workout: it’s a fun, social dance party – with exercise being the biggest perk! The music is upbeat and contagious, so you can’t help but keep moving. Come join Teri or Vickie for a mix of traditional Zumba, Zumba Toning (with light weights), and Zumba Step (step is optional). You don't have to have rhythm, just the desire to burn some calories! Vickie is leading our Zumba until Teri is fully recovered.

What is HIIT & LIIT?

HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training, but don't let the name intimidate you. Stephanie leads us through rounds of cardio, upper body, lower body, and Abs/Core with short rests in between. The idea here is to get the heart rate up, then let it come down, which is called Interval Training. Studies suggest that this is the fastest way to burn calories and in turn burn fat for the slimmer, trimmer, toned YOU! Modifications to almost every exercise are given for those who are less advanced, and/or have limitations due to injuries.

Coming Feb. 5th, at 6:30PM, LIIT (Low Intensity Interval Training). This class is for everyone wanting a good combination of cardio and strength-training.

HIIT Circuits

Stephanie leads the HIIT It! Circuits. This is a class to promote strength and stamina, and is a full-body workout.  Stations are used and are either timed or require a certain number of repetitions.  Equipment or simple body weight is used to perform the exercises.  Individuals move from station to station changing exercises at each station.  The goal is just like other interval training, heart rate up then down to burn calories and fat faster. Modifications are given and the intensity of the workout is totally up to you!
