STRONG by Zumba® is here!
The newest program from the leader in group exercise combines the sciences of HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and motivational music to deliver a fitness experience like no other.
I was fortunate enough to participate and become a licensed instructor in the first wave of trainings this weekend. A major bonus was to take the training with Zumba® Education Specialist (ZES) Kelly Bullard, who is a dynamo in her own right, and one of my favorite presenters.
This IS NOT dance fitness folks, and Zumba (the company) wants their STRONG instructors to deliver, so participants really know it and feel it. That said, there’s still the magic of Zumba that we all know and love: the music, the formula, the enjoyment. As instructors and students both, we know Zumba®is a trusted entity….if they’re involved in it, it’s going to be good!
HIIT (Zumba’s version is HITTZ: High Intensity Tempo Training Zumba-style) is weaved through 4 “Quadrants” that bring more and more challenge as the class progresses. Classic moves such as squats, lunges, planks and traditional martial arts forms are layered and sequenced flawlessly, and all worked in and around music created to match. Everyone can do this, there are so many modifications and levels.
Watch for some demo classes and events and some surprise “roll-outs” of a Quadrant or two in a regular class! Join this amazing program.
