Whether you experienced the first installment or not, No Equip-
ment Necessary – Take Two is a great workout that takes min-
imal space and produces maximum effect. In Take Two, we’ll
move beyond a strictly strength workout and combine easy to
follow cardio drills with creative strength sequences for a full
body workout. Ease the intimidation factor by removing the
equipment while increasing the effectiveness through elevated
cueing techniques. Use what you’ve got and take your workouts
beyond what you ever dreamed possible… no clean up required!

In January many decide to join a gym. But research shows that
more than half the people will not make it to swimsuit season.
Why? Because their goal was to join a gym, and once they signed
up- they met their goal! This lecture covers basic mental program-
ming to discover how the mind works and how to use it most ef-
fectively. You will learn how to choose your feelings and state of
mind, easily break negative habits and adopt positive ones.

TASTE OF ZUMBA – Nicole Parcels
Zumba combines high energy and motivating music with unique
moves and combinations that allow the participants to dance
away their worries! Zumba is not only great for the body, but is
also great for the mind. It is a “feel-happy” workout. This class is
a fusion of Latin and International music - dance themes creat-
ing a dynamic, exciting, effective fitness system! The routines
feature aerobic/fitness interval training with a combination of fast
and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body. Zumba utilizes
the principals of fitness interval training and resistance training to
maximize caloric output, fat burning and total body toning. It is a
mixture of body sculpting movements with easy to follow dance
steps. This will be a great class to familiarize yourself with the
routines with a break down of the moves, practice sessions, a
group challenge and a final 1 hour workout guaranteed to ensure
a Zumbalicious workout. Bring a smile, water and hips that are
ready to shake, shake, shake!

HIIT Training is all the rage. This nonstop powerhouse session
will cover current research, programming ideas, and the best
HIIT exercises on the planet. You will also learn how 4 minutes
can change your workout world and turn you into a fat burning
furnace with Tabata Training. You will never train the same again!
