Join Esther Gutierrez Sloan for fun workout! The major distinction of this program is that the joy, fun, and discovery are ongoing!!

The option of varying intensity levels from low to moderate to high is a choice that is ongoing throughout the class, while moving to a myriad of enticing Latin, Caribbean, Spaniard and African beats.  Low impact and high impact options are also presented to choose from.

-Esther offers an experience that averages  4000-4200 steps with varying degrees of intensity.

-Total Body Training “TBT” Systems Methodology is used to maintain proper postural alignment and ensure muscular conditioning.

-Pheripheral Heart Action PHA training methodology is used to work with aerobic intensity which is  optional and challenged based on the level that the participant chooses to execute the rhythmic steps

-Using inline motion protocol, moving from one end of the room to the other end makes the participant effectively and functionally use steps, while working on balance and coordination by changing direction {lateral, diagonal, front, backward).

Propioceptive Neurological Facilitation PNF stretching is performed at end of session.

This class runs on Fridays, 9:30am – 10:30am
