Department of Recreation offering fitness classes

February 7, 2013

WAYNESBURG – For six weeks this spring, the Greene County Department of Recreation will be offering two fitness classes.

Aerobics classes will run from 6 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday from March 13 through April 17, and classes in the fitness program Zumba will be offered from 6 to 7 p.m. every Thursday from March 14 through April 18. Both series of classes will be held in the upper level of the 4-H Building at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Waynesburg.

Individual classes can be attended at a cost of $8 per class. Anyone wishing to attend all six weeks, however, can register at a discounted rate of $5 per class, for a total of $30. The early registration deadlines are March 12 for aerobics and March 13 for Zumba.

Instructor Shastina Humble will lead both series. Attendees should wear sweat-absorbing clothes and good support shoes and bring water and a towel.

The aerobics classes are designed for both high- and low-impact workouts. Aerobic exercise conditions the heart and lungs; other benefits include increased energy and stamina, toned muscles, decreased tension and improved mood.

The fitness program Zumba combines Latin and international music with dynamic, yet simple exercise moves. Benefits of Zumba include efficient calorie-burning, muscle toning and cardiovascular improvement. Zumba is recognized by leading fitness organizations, including the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, the American Council on Exercise and Can-Fit-Pro, a Canadian fitness education organization.
