Fitness instructor Dara Kelly is infusing party fun into fitness by launching Zumba® drop-in classes for all in Galway. Zumba eliminates the ‘work’ from ‘working out’ by combining irresistible Latin and international music with dynamic yet simple exercise moves, using a unique intermittent training format.
While Zumba embraces all the fundamental principles of fitness, the extraordinary secret behind Zumba is how Zumba magically motivates the body to efficiently burn calories, tone all muscle groups, incorporate full range of motion, and improve the cardiovascular system. Fun and music are the two special motivational ingredients. Using the natural beat, tempo, and music transitions, the Zumba dances seamlessly flow from one toning, strengthening, or cardio move into the next. Participants are engaged and entertained with the variety of rhythms including salsa, merengue, samba, bellydancing, cumbia, and reggaeton. Zumba breaks away from the typical 32-count aerobic format and uses the passion of the music as it was meant to be experienced. Even those with two left feet are successful in a Zumba class because of the natural flow of the simple steps that radiate though the body in synch with the music.
Zumba is recognised by the world’s leading fitness educators and has sanctioned training programmes in South America, USA, and all over Europe. “Zumba is already being taught in a few gyms in Galway,” said Dara Kelly. “The classes are packed, everyone loves it! I believe this amazing, fun class should be available to everybody, so I’m taking it to community cen%tres and non-gym venues all over Galway. I’m running a week of free taster classes in Westside, the Claddagh, and Terryland during the first week in August and everyone is invited, from teens to seniors, and both women and men. Come along and I guarantee you’ll be hooked on Zumba!”
Free classes will take place in Westside Community Centre, Tuesday August at 8.30pm and Thursday August 6 at 10am; Creaven House, 8A The Claddagh, Tuesday August 4 and Thursday August 6 at 6.15pm; and in Terryland, to be confirmed.
