Douglasville Zumba Classes – Gold’s Gym Douglasville

The latest workout craze has come to Gold’s Gym Douglasville.  Zumba classes at Gold’s Gym are energetic, exciting and above all filled with all fitness levels and ages. 

What is Zumba?  Zumba is a Latin-inspired workout program that incorporates a number of different types of traditional dances into a fun, group exercise class format.  No matter if you want to improve your cardiovascular system, lose weight, improve your coordination, or boost your mood, Zumba dancing may be just what the doctor ordered!   I love Zumba because you work the entire body.  You have so much fun that you don’t realize how hard you’ve worked until you see the sweat!  It’s a fun easy to follow workout with great music! Cynthia Florence Gold’s Gym Zumba Instructor.    Denise Johnston, a Gold’s Gym Master Instructor finds Zumba motivating and fun. 

 Want to Lose Weight…Zumba is a Weight Loss Solution  Weight Loss is one of the most common reasons that people choose to join a Gold’s Gym group exercise class such as Zumba.  Zumba is a type of cardiovascular exercise, and research has found that participating in cardiovascular exercise is the best way to lose weight. For the average person, engaging in Zumba dance for one hour will burn approximately 400 calories.  Zumba participants, who partner regular participation in Zumba with a healthy nutritional program, find weight loss results.

 Brandi Spence, a Gold’s Gym Member, found great weight loss results with Zumba.  I love the Zumba program because I love to dance and it’s like we go meet up with friends a couple times a week to have a dance party! I have lost 35 lbs since November and I have more energy than I have had in a long time!! I would recommend Zumba to others because not only is Zumba fun but you forget its exercise.   You have fun losing weight and meeting new people! My Fiancé’ loves how I look and I feel more sexy now than I have in years!!

Zumba can also be the answer to anyone who is a bit bored with their current workout routine.  Zumba addresses both of these problems by providing a total body workout in one session and making exercise fun. The music is lively and the mood is incredibly upbeat in a Zumba exercise class. Time goes by quickly because the dance routines are anything but boring.   Gold’s Gym Member Lakisa Conley, not only found a great workout, but it reenergized her fitness routine.   I love the Zumba program because I can’t tell that I am physically working out. It truly feels like I am a party dancing the night away. I have several exercise tapes at home such as Hip Abs and Turbo dance, but I never committed to the work routines. I started taking Zumba classes in July of 2010 and I immediately became hooked to working out. I took Zumba 6-7 days a week. I love the music, routines and the instructors. Zumba is my super cardio party which has allowed me to begin my weight loss program. I lost 10 pounds in the first thirty days and dropped two dress sizes. As of today, I have lost a total of 30 pounds and Zumba was the primary class that I took on a weekly basis. I would definitely recommend Zumba to others because the Zumba fitness program literally changed my life and has inspired me to become an instructor to teach others that you can achieve your fitness goals if you just move your body and commit to your workouts. Nine months ago I was very shy, low self-esteem and lived a very isolated life alone. Today, I am more confident, outgoing, and an emerging social climber. I have a new outlook on life and it all happened when I committed to my weight loss.

Are you ready to party yourself into shape? That’s exactly what the Zumba program is all about. It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving all types of people and fitness levels toward joy and health.  Visit to download a FREE WEEK PASS and to view the complete Gold’s Gym class schedule by location.

Can Wearing Certain Shoes Tone the Hips and Legs?

You have all seen the commercials for the new lines of toning shoes…but do they work?  The basic premise of the shoes is to provide instability through various designs  such as the “rockerlike soles” and air pockets built into the shoes which make it more challenging for the wearer to maintain balance.  Conceptually, this is similar to the difficulty that’s encountered when trying to maintain balance upon an unstable object such as a wobble board.

Promoters often point to a study that was done at the University of Delaware.  In the study five women walked for five minutes on a treadmill three different ways: wearing the toning shoes, wearing regular walking shoes and barefoot.  It was found that toning shoes produced significantly greater muscle activity in the gluteals, hamstrings and calves.

However, the study had many limitations.  It was short duration (involving only 500 steps), had a small number of subjects and wasn’t published in a peer-review journal.  Moreover, the study was funded by a manufacturer of the shoes.

Bottomline, the best way to tone hips, legs and thighs is to work those muscles regularly with or without expensive toning shoes.  Gold’s Gym can help!Find out more about the weight loss and toning programs at Gold’s Gym!
