Several weeks ago, I blogged about a great opportunity for your kids to exercise while you workout. Junior Fitness Academy at Gold’s Gym in Shrewsbury is a great way for you to still get your time in or jump into a class while your kid(s) get a workout of their own. However, as of this coming Monday, June 18th, there will also be a way that you can workout with your child(ren). Gold’s Gym in Shrewsbury will be introducing ZumbAtomic!
I’m sure most, if not all of you have heard of Zumba. It’s all the rage! If you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, a brief explanation would be “shakin’ your tailfeathers for about an hour and burning a bunch of calories while laughing (at yourself, in my case) and having fun”. Sounds pretty awesome, huh? Add your child to that, cut back the time about 15 minutes, make the moves a little easier and you have ZumbAtomic!
Zumba is one of the most highly attended classes at our club. We thought for the summer, we could add something that would accommodate the parents who were home with their children. Or, perhaps the sitter or nanny would like to bring your child? Why not?! Members can enjoy this group class as a benefit to being a regular member, while their child pays a small fee. Non-members can either become members (wink, wink) or “pay as they play”, along with their child.
I have a friend out of state who does this with her son (yep, I said son) all the time. They absolutely love it! When I told her we were offering it in the morning at our gym, she was disappointed that she didn’t have that option, as she mentioned having to wait until after lunch to go to the pool anyway. And my question was, “Yeah, and what do you do on rainy days?” ZumbAtomic may be a perfect fit for you and your son/daughter.
Since the class is a “drop-in”, you don’t have to commit for 10 or 12 classes or for a group of weeks together. You go when you want! And, if it’s a hit, we may just be able to add another class like this to our schedule. It’s hard to believe it won’t be with our wonderful instructor, Kendi. She’s a hoot! She’ll make sure you’re having fun with her awesome spirit and her amazing moves. C’mon… You know you’re intrigued!
I dare you to check it out! If you need more details, contact Gold’s Gym in Shrewsbury.
