Zumba & Toning with Wendy
Wednesdays 18.30 - 19.30
You probably already know what to expect at a Zumba class, an amazing playlist of Latin and world rhythms, easy and fun choreography with little verbal cueing, a great atmosphere and fitness in disguise.
What can you expect from my Zumba & Toning class at Risinghurst Community Centre, Oxford?
The class follows the same party principles of the original Zumba but with a little added resistance to help tone and sculpt the body. The class is an interval-based class, easy to follow using the original Zumba choreography and toning choreography using small handheld weights. This is not a typical body conditioning class. I use verbal cueing to ensure that participants have the correct form and technique.
The class starts with easy step touch style and merengue marches to increase blood flow to muscles to prepare the body for the cardio sections. The toning sections keep the heart rate raised so you are burning calories throughout. Also, a toned muscle will increase metabolism and continue to burn more calories even when at rest.
The warmup section is approx. 8-10 mins, cardio/toning section 40 mins, then we have floor section to concentrate on core and abdominal work and another muscle group.
After we finish with a slower paced cool down to stretch all the muscles worked to avoid any soreness.
Come along and try it out, there is an amazing friendly group of ladies of all ages and abilities.
