Originally published in The Commons issue #179 (Wednesday, November 21, 2012).

TOWNSHEND—Looking for a fun way to stay fit? Starting Tuesday, Nov. 27, Grace Cottage Hospital will offer three different Zumba classes each week.

The Zumba workout combines easy-to-follow moves with invigorating Latin music, creating a fitness program that’s both effective and fun. Appropriate for all ages and fitness levels, the only requirements are comfy clothes, low tread sneakers, and a water bottle.

An eight-week series of standard-style Zumba will be offered on Tuesdays, starting Nov. 27. A Zumba toning class will be offered on eight Wednesdays, starting Nov. 28. Zumba Gold, a slower-paced Zumba with accommodations for beginners and those with physical challenges, will be offered on eight Thursdays, starting Nov. 29.

All classes will be held from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Grace Cottage Hospital Community Wellness Center, 133 Grafton Rd./Rte. 35 in Townshend.

The Tuesday and Thursday class series cost $80 each or $130 for both Tuesday and Thursday. The Wednesday toning class series fee is $95 plus the purchase of toning sticks. One can take the Tuesday and Thursday class for $130, or the toning class with either the Tuesday or Thursday class for $150, or take all three classes for $225.

The drop-in fee for any class is $13 per class.

All of these classes will be taught by certified Zumba instructor Tiffany Reeves.

Each class is limited to 20 participants. Call 802-365-3649 to register.
