Shake it Up

Rhythm in Motion

Pound your way to health in this interactive fitness program at the Field House Sports, Fitness & Aquatics Center. Drumming is the newest craze in fitness. Participants will drum to the rhythm while getting a total body work out. Check the SRSNLC Program Guide for more information.

Family Zumba

Zumba combines Latin American music and dance to create one great class that feels more like a party than a work out. We’ll begin with the basics, so everyone can join with or without previous dance experience. Check the SRSNLC Program Guide for more information.
