“Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness is an amazing workout that will really help people stick to their New Year’s resolutions,” said Lucy Yeats, owner of Bainbridge Curves. “It combines Curves proven strength-training program, where you can burn up to 500 calories in just 30 minutes, with the Latin and international inspired music and exhilarating, simple dance moves that have made Zumba so popular. We want you to experience it for yourself to see what an incredible workout it is, so we’re inviting Bainbridge residents to try it free for one week.”

All ages, fitness levels and dance abilities can participate in and benefit from Curves Circuit with Zumba Fitness classes.

During the 30-minute class, participants work out on each Curves strength machine for one minute, alternating upper, lower and core muscles. After one minute, the music cues the participant to change stations on the circuit, and she moves to an area between machines to do Zumba moves, which tone and sculpt the body while burning fat. A licensed Zumba instructor from the Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN) teaches simple, modified Zumba moves from the center of the circuit.

At the end of 30 minutes, participants have completed one trip around the entire circuit, worked every major muscle group, and achieved a fun, energetic cardio workout ending with a group stretch led by the Zumba instructor.

You must be a Curves member in order to participate in the Zumba workout.
