4001 - STRONG By Zumba® (W/S)

Karine Opasinski


In other high intensity interval training programs, music is an afterthought. Combining HIIT with the science of synced music motivation, and using only body weight, students work out in sync to music that’s been reverse-engineered to match every move. This isn't dancing: it’s feeling the beat instead of counting the reps to push students past their perceived limits into a whole new level of intensity. Let It Sync In™! Take a shot at attendee challenges (push-ups, burpees, squats, planks) with prizes for the winners. Sign up at the link below (only attendees of the class can participate).

Incremental progression supported by rhythm, repetition, and “holding the stretch” improves myofascial elasticity and prepares the joints for increased range of motion.
