Zumba your pounds off at Wallace Creek Fitness Center Lance Cpl. Justin Rodriguez

Members of the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune community participate in a Zumba class at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center aboard base, Dec. 5. The class is designed to create a friendly environment where patrons are introduced to fast-paced music and dance moves.

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. -- Hearts were thumping as patrons danced to the beat of the music during a Zumba class at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 5.

Service members, families and base employees participated in the hour-long class, which is designed to create a friendly environment where patrons are introduced to fast-paced music and dance moves.
Zumba classes do not require previous training, so anyone can step right into the class, have an enjoyable time and burn calories, said Sanda Heger, Group exercise coordinator with Marine Corps Community Services.

The class incorporates different types of music and dancing to keep patrons guessing and find new ways to enjoy the class.

“They make it feel like a club with music and lights,” said Rose Cantu, “and it’s a good chance to meet other military spouses.”

Easy-to-learn moves welcome participants at any skill level, all while keeping a fast pace during the class.

“The fast-pace keeps everyone moving and hearts beating,” added Heger. “I think Zumba could be a good way for someone who’s tired of repetitive physical training to change up their schedule.”

Zumba offers an environment where participants are challenged, but also have fun.

“This type of class is an all-around physically challenging class,” said Heger. “Anyone who attends this class will see a cardio improvement.”

The Zumba classes are offered Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at the Wallace Creek Fitness Center.
