    Cardiovascular Fitness & Fun

    zumbaThe International Fitness Phenomenon that feels more like a Party than a Workout!

    Zumba® — the newest, hottest, Latin dance-inspired workout changing the face of fitness across the world — has finally arrived in Shannon Leisure Centre.

    Zumba® fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy to follow moves to create a dynamic fitness program. The routines feature interval training sessions where rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt the body while burning fat. Add some Latin flavour and international zest into the mix and you’ve got Zumba®!

    Maria Hoffman is a  certified Zumba® instructor, and excited to be introducing Zumba® to Shannon leisure centre.

    Zumba® has millions of people in over 40 countries across the globe motivated to lose kilos and centimetres and feel incredible,. “A Zumba® workout is all about fun – you don’t need to love exercise or know how to Zumba®. Zumba® takes the ‘work’ out of a ‘workout,’ combining dynamic and accessible exercise moves with interval cardio-training.

    The difference with Zumba® is the music – it’s the special motivational ingredient. With specific beats and tempo changes, all you need to do is move naturally to the beat. The workout starts with one simple step and then moves up the body until everything is in motion.

    Zumba creates a great energy and vibe that isn’t experienced through conventional exercise. People of all ages and skill levels can join in the class and have a ton of fun!

    People who enjoy Zumba® know that fitness doesn’t have to be about repetition and pain. With Zumba®, it feels like a party – the results are almost secondary. The best thing about Zumba® is the way it’s so addictive!

    We have been absolutely blown away by some of the fantastic feedback from our aqua aerobics ladies over the last few weeks. This is why we do what we do! Here is a few of the wonderful things they are saying about us :)

     

    “I cannot recommend aqua aerobics highly enough. They have proved very helpful with a problem I had with a torn tendon in my upper arm for some time. What is really terrific is that one does not need to know how to swim. I do not know how to swim but now feel comfortable in the pool. We have tea/coffee after our session in the pool which is very enjoyable. The whole aqua aerobics weekly experience is great” (Denise)

    “I enjoy the chat with the girls over tea/coffee. Remi, our instructor, is a gentleman” (Margaret)

    “I find the aqua aerobics very good for joints. It is a great all over body work out. It is also a very sociable occasion and an opportunity to meet new people” (I. Walsh)
