New class for Fall 2010 WorkFit Program – Zumba

The Fall 2010 WorkFit Program, which runs through Wednesday, Dec. 22, has a new class beginning this Thursday, Dec. 2. The new class, Zumba, is aerobic dance exercise to a Latin beat. It’s a full cardio workout – and fun to boot!

There are three free Zumba classes on Dec. 2, 9 and 16, from 4:45-5:30 p.m. in the Franklin Builiding, former credit union space. Come join the fun with certified Zumba instructor Geoffrey Suguitan. (Space is limited to 20 participants in the Zumba class. Please arrive early.)

Mid-season FlexPasses, valid through Dec. 22, are still available for $35. The FlexPass is good for any class, any time, at either location (Franklin and Kaiser Mall Buildings) through the end of the Fall 2010 WorkFit Program. (A description and schedule of classes is below.)
