Delta/Surrey ZV Instructor, Tamara Fraser gave me some helpful hints on putting together a challenge like this. Check out her Website for more helpful incentives. http://www.freetobegirls.com/
Tamara wanted to spread the love of health & fitness beyond just what we can offer in our Zumba® classes and that is where "freetobegirls" is born from. We work in an online setting with people from all over North America. We find out what specific health, fitness, and/or nutrition goals are, we match each person to his or her own program, and then we support each person to finish the chosen program. We have created an online "fitfamily" where we all encourage and support each other to reach the goals we set for ourselves. Our programs are about making healthy, sustainable changes to our lifestyles rather than dieting. We believe in real food, real sweat, and real success!!!
New Class – STRONG by Zumba™
Taught by Jami at Creekside Comm. Centre and Coal Harbour Comm. Centre
Perfect for fitness enthusiasts looking for a more challenging, high intensity interval training workout. Moving in sync with music makes you work harder. This class will push you past your plateaus to help you reach your fitness goals faster. Using your own body weight, you will gain muscular endurance, tone, and definition, and you will experience an increased afterburn.
Free trial classes Jan 4th 8:15 at Creekside Comm.Center and Jan 12, 7:30 at Coal Harbour Comm Centre. Register to reserve your spot https://ca.apm.activecommunities.com/vancouver/Activity_Search?IsSearch=true
