Exercise is an essential part of your life. We are so excited that you have chosen Fit Dance Studio! Our goal is to make your workout enjoyable and something that you look forward to doing each day!
Still feeling a bit uncoordinated? Focus on your legs. If you get lost when the instructor shows you a move, skip the arms – it’s as simple as that. Focusing on just following the leg movements will ensure you still get an effective workout (we promise). After a while, you'll feel more comfortable with adding arm movements to those rockin’ legs of yours.
It’s important to know when to take a break. If you’re having trouble breathing or if you are red in the face, you need to take a break and drink some water. Don’t get upset if this happens. Remember, everyone has to begin somewhere.
We are all at different levels, shapes, and sizes – we celebrate that! Some people like to jump and take moves to the next level, while others choose to take a lower impact approach to Zumba. You do what feels right for your body. This is your workout - your time to relieve stress and enjoy yourself. Do what is best for you.
Identify the regulars. Sometimes you won’t be able to see every single step and motion from the instructor. During the first song, scan the room and look for the people who seem to know all of the moves. This way you’ll always have someone to follow if you lose the rhythm or just aren’t sure what’s going on.
It’s OK to mess up. Yep, we said that it’s OK to mess up! Just keep moving. Effort is everything, and no one gets bonus points for perfectly executing choreography and technique. The mission of Zumba is to create an enjoyable workout that suits your needs. As long as you keep moving and refuse to give up, you’re doing the workout right.
The routine changes constantly. Once a new song starts, you begin with a clean slate and a whole new set of sweet moves. There’s no need to feel frustrated if there’s a step you can’t master right away. You’ll always have another chance to get it right. Sometimes those moves that were difficult for us to learn end up becoming our favorites, so don't let discouragement get in your way.
Get loud! We will ask you to yell, cheer, and sing along with songs. It makes class more enjoyable, and helps you de-stress. It also makes some moves seem easier! Woot woot!
