Temecula ZUMBA® classes
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 millions of people toward joy and health.
Zumba Fitness is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious steps to form a "fitness-party" that is downright addictive. Since its inception in 2001, the Zumba program has grown to become the world's largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 12 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes.
The Temecula Zumba program currently offers six types of Zumba classes:
Zumba – When participants see a Zumba class in action, they can’t wait to give it a try. Temecula Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before participants know it, they’re getting fit and their energy levels are soaring! There’s no other fitness class like a Temecula Zumba Fitness-Party. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.
Zumba Gold – Zumba Gold targets the largest growing segment of the population: baby boomers. It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggae; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement and fitness as a regular part of their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun.
Zumba Toning – When it comes to body sculpting, Zumba Toning raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick). It combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba moves to create a calorie-torching, strength-training dance fitness-party. Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs. Zumba Toning is the perfect way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.
Aqua Zumba – Known as the Zumba "pool party," Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting,
laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
Zumbatomic – Designed exclusively for kids (ages 4-12), Zumbatomic classes are rockin’, high-energy fitness-parties packed with specially choreographed, kid-friendly
routines and all the music kids love, like hip-hop, reggae, cumbia and more. Parents love Zumbatomic because of the effects it has on kids, increasing their focus and self-confidence, boosting metabolism and enhancing coordination. Zumbatomic rounds out family fitness goals by giving parents a great reason to head to the gym – for themselves, for their kids, for a totally fun family experience.

Temecula Spinning® classes
Nearly 1,000,000 people ride on a Spinner® bike in a Spinning® class every day. Over 15 years ago, a new activity was created, now known as indoor group cycling. When it comes to experience, no other brand comes close to Spinning, and Spinning beats nearly every other cardio program ever created. If you are looking to burn calories, nothing compares to a Spinning workout. Think about this: a typical Spinning class will get you burning as much as 600 calories in just 40 minutes!
Spinning was created by world-class cyclist "Jonny G." Goldberg as a convenient and quick way to train for races. In 1989, he and John Baudhuin opened the first spinning center in Santa Monica, California and then developed a program to certify other spinning instructors.
What is Spinning?It's is an aerobic exercise that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle called a Spinning bike. As you pedal, motivating music plays and the instructor talks you through a visualization of an outdoor cycling workout: During the class you vary your pace -- sometimes pedaling as fast as you can, other times cranking up the tension and pedaling slowly from a standing position.
Why Spinning?It burns some serious calories and offers an awesome aerobic workout that makes your heart pump fast. It also tones your quadriceps (front thigh muscles) and outer thigh muscles like nobody's business! Because you stay in one place with the same basic movement throughout, Spinning doesn't involve a lot of coordination; it's easier to concentrate on your form than in other types of aerobic classes. And although you follow the general instructions of the spinning teacher, you are in control when it comes to your pace. You can finish a spin class, regardless of your fitness level, simply by adjusting your pace or the tension knob on the bike.
Drawbacks: Spinning does not work all leg muscles equally, so if you spin without doing some cross training activities, you may develop muscle imbalances. Spinning every day can also be too much of a good thing -- real spin enthusiasts have to watch out for overuse injuries in their knees, hips and lower backs. If spinning is your main source of exercise, it's recommended to do some resistance training workouts that include hamstring (back of thigh), buttock and inner thigh exercises.
Equipment Needed for Spinning: Other than the bike, here's what you need for a safe, comfortable ride:
- A stiff-soled shoe with good ventilation. (Running and aerobic shoes, which are
soft-soled, may leave your feet numb by the end of the class.)
- Two towels, one for wiping away sweat from your body and one for wiping away
sweat from the bike, especially the handlebars so your hands won't slide out of
- A full water bottle, because you're definitely going to sweat. Most spinning
bikes are equipped with a water bottle cage so you can place your water within
All About Cardio in Temecula and Murrieta
What exactly is cardio? Cardiovascular exercise simply means that you're involved in an activity that raises your heart rate to a level where you're working hard, but can continue to work at that intensity for a period of time. The intensity is determined by your heart rate. So, to be at the proper intensity, you would be working in your Target Heart Rate Zone.
Here's why cardio is so important:
- It's one way to burn calories and help you lose weight
- It makes your heart strong so that it doesn't have to work as hard to pump blood
- It increases your lung capacity
- It helps reduce risk of heart attack, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes
- It makes you feel good
- It helps you sleep better
- It helps reduce stress
Just about any activity can be a cardio workout, as long as it involves a movement that gets your heart rate into your Target Heart Rate Zone. So when deciding what to do for cardio, remember:
- There is no "best" cardio exercise. Anything that you enjoy and that gets your heart rate will do.
- It's not what you do, but how hard you work. Any exercise can be challenging if you make it that way.
- Do something you enjoy. If you hate gym workouts, don't force yourself onto a treadmill. If you like socializing, consider group fitness, working out with a friend.
- Choose something you can do at least 3 days a week.
- Split your workouts into several shorter workouts throughout the day.
- Take a few minutes here and there for some stair-climbing or speed walking.
- Do all those things you know you should be doing: take the stairs, walk more, stop driving around looking for that front row parking space, etc.
- Make the time. People who workout don't have more time than people who don't workout. They've just made exercise a priority. Scheduling your workouts and treating them like any other appointment you wouldn't miss may help you stick to your program.
- Pay someone to make you exercise. Finding a good personal trainer can make a difference when it comes to motivation and reaching your goals.
- Do something...anything. If you think 5 minutes isn't enough time to workout, you couldn't be more wrong. Whether it's 5 minutes, 10 minutes or 60 minutes, every single minute counts.
The frequency of your workouts will depend on your fitness level and your schedule. Beginners should start with about 3 non-consecutive days of cardio and work their way up to more frequent sessions. The general guidelines are:
- To maintain current fitness level: 2-4 days a week (at least 20 minutes)
- To lose weight: 4 or more days a week (at least 30 minutes)
- To train for a triathlon: A whole lot.
Keep in mind that if you can't follow the guidelines because of your busy schedule, you may have trouble reaching your weight loss goals. If you can't do the work required to reach your goals, you may have to change your lifestyle.
Once you've gotten used to exercise (and are up to 30 minutes of continuous movement) you can start working on your intensity. How hard you work is a crucial factor in your cardio workout because:
- How hard you work is directly related to how many calories you burn
- Raising intensity (heart rate) is the best way to burn more calories when you're short on time.
- It's an easy part of your workout to change--all you do is work harder
- It's easy to measure with a heart rate monitor
- High Intensity Cardio: This falls between about 75-85% of your maximum heart rate (MHR) if you're using heart rate zones. What this translates to is exercise at a level that feels challenging and leaves you too breathless to talk much. If you're a beginner, you may want to work up to this level or try interval training so that you work harder for shorter periods of time.
- Moderate Intensity Cardio: This level falls between about 60-70% of your MHR. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) often recommends this level of intensity in its exercise guidelines. This is the level you typically want to shoot for during your workouts.
- Low Intensity Cardio: This type of exercise is considered to be below about 50-55% of your MHR. This is a good level to work at during your warm ups or when you're squeezing in other activities, like walking, throughout the day.
