A free taster event is being held at Andover Leisure Centre this weekend [Sunday 10th April] to launch a new set of exercise classes aimed at re-introducing older and inactive people into exercise.
Zumba® Gold Toning is a low intensity class that uses small weights, helping you to focus on specific muscle groups providing a range of health benefits include improved heart and lung fitness as well as increased strength and balance.
The free launch session promises a fun yet safe and effective total body workout through exotic blends of dance styles such as merengue, salsa, tango and flamenco.
The new classes mark the second phase of the Move More with Zumba® Fitness programme, which is funded by Sport England, Sporta, Zumba® Fitness LLC, and Sport Hampshire Isle of Wight and delivered by leisure trust, Valley Leisure.
“The Move More with Zumba® Fitness programme is an ideal activity for older people and for those just beginning their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. It’s a fun way to exercise and get your body moving,” said Liz Murray, Valley Leisure’s community manager.
“The classes provide a great workout for the mind and body and people can move at their own pace, learning more and more as they go along.” Liz added.
