We are so excited about the variety of classes we will be offering at Studio 8! Here is a brief description of our classes

 


 

Zumba - 
Ditch the workout, Join the Party! A total workout, combining all elements of fitness - Cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of Awesome each time you leave class. Each Zumba class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on! We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba Fitness classes are often called Exercise in disguise

The session begins with tabata style cardio -- short segments of cardio exercises with breaks in between. The class then transitions into toning of the arms, core and legs for a total body cardio tone experience.

 

 

 

POUND Rockout Workout -  

POUND is a full-body cardio jam session, combining light resistance with constant simulated drumming. The workout fuses cardio, Pilates, isometric movements, plyometrics and Isometric poses into a 45-minute series. Burn between 400 and 900+ calories per hour, strengthen and sculpt infrequently used muscles, and drum your way to a leaner, slimmer physique – all while rocking out to your favorite music!

 

Through continual upper body motion using our lightly weighted drumsticks, called Ripstix™, you’ll turn into a calorie-torching drummer, POUNDing off pounds as each song flies by. Rock, rap, dubstep, pop and old school music fuse to create the POUNDtrack series, which is hand-selected by music enthusiasts, drummers and POUND Founders. 

POUND combines easy to follow (and not complex or embarrassing) cardio moves with strength training and drumming. This combo works the entire body, raises the heart rate to a fat-burning zone, and forces each move to be as precise as a basic beat. Each 2-4 minute song is carefully calibrated with interval peaks and extended fat burning sequences, providing you with the best workout in the shortest span of time. After you’re done rocking out to the 45-minute POUNDtrack, you’ll have done 15,000 reps, performed over 30 extended interval peaks, and zipped through over 70 techniques without even realizing it.
