    Zumba in the circuit Instructor

    Jan, 2015 - Present

    Curves grym

    In Zumba in the Circuit, participants alternate between circuit weight-training machines and classic Zumba dance-fitness moves. At a specified sound cue, participants leave one machine or dance move and go to the next. Typical machines exercises include leg extensions, bicep curls, chest presses, and more. The weight machines build strength, targeting all the muscle groups of the body, while the Zumba steps add cardio into the mix. Add to this your favorite Zumba music beats (ranging from salsa to samba to reggaeton to meringue to African to jazz to hip-hop, belly dance and more). Is full body workout
