Group exercise at Asphalt Green is on pause due to COVID-19. In the meantime, we’ve curated a list of personal trainers and workouts you may like based on the classes you love. 

Class: Zumba  

Workout style: You love to dance! A workout is a success if you leave with a smile on your face. But make no mistake—you're working up a sweat while having a great time.  

Perfect personal trainer match: 

You’ll love them because they both have dance backgrounds. They will create routines that bring the energy you love about Zumba to a one-on-one session.  

Try it on your own: 

If you’re hitting the fitness center solo, incorporate coordination, balance, and cardio exercises to give your workout a Zumba-like feel. Think side shuffles, sprints, single-leg balance reaches, and one-ins. You can also play with coordinating your moves to the tempo of your music. Try playing a song that you love and can safely keep the tempo with. It will make your workout fly by!
