The COVID pandemic has hit small businesses hard in our community and unfortunately, Pumped Up is no exception. When we temporarily closed from March through mid-July, I was hopeful that participation would rebound when we reopened. Unfortunately, that has not been the case. People have found other means of getting their workouts in via on-line classes & doing things at home, which I totally support! Good for you! In this day & age of uncertainty, we NEED to be home to stay safe, healthy & value that family time.
* No more Thursday night classes effective immediately. Thursday classes have always been smaller due to the day of the week, time of day, etc. I'm not able to keep them going with such small headcounts.
* All prepaid classes will expire effective 10/27/2020. As a courtesy to our participants, I've never expired the prepaid classes before, but now I must. All classes must be used by 10/27/2020. You have 15 opportunities to use them up in the next 8 weeks before they expire. No refunds will be given. The exception to this rule is if you have a medical condition that prevents you from attending. If this is the case, get a hold of me & we will chat. ;) If you have used all of your prepaid classes and would still like to attend any remaining evenings, it will be $5 cash only. No more prepaid class packages will be sold.
Monday nights Z with strengthening at 6:15, and Tuesday nights STRONG NATION at 6:15 p.m. $5 per class. My team of fun, amazing, inspiring instructors will continue to be at classes when their schedules allow them and will be teaching your favorite routines until it's time to close the doors.
To everyone for allowing me to have become a part of your lives & fitness journey, some of you for almost 10 years now. It's because of YOU that Pumped Up has been such a success, a place for people to come work out & gain friendships that will last a lifetime. I'm so blessed to have had this opportunity to bring people together & hopefully, make a difference in people's lives.
Peace & Love,
See you Tuesday evening, 09/08/2020 for STRONG NATION! Enjoy your extended weekend!
Literally happy dancing today! Phase 4 has been implemented and we have the go-ahead by the owner of the building to resume classes! Woot woot!

COVID precautions and social distancing will be in force:
* Self-monitor. Take your temperature before you leave the house. If it is elevated, stay home. If you are not feeling well, stay home. If you feel you may have ANY symptoms of COVID-19, STAY HOME. Basically, use common sense.
* All participants are required to bring their own yoga mats and weights for the strengthening portion of class. Pumped Up will no longer provide these items.
* Masks must be worn into the building and during check-in. After you've checked in and found your spot, masks may be removed for activity.
* At check-in, you will be asked a series of questions regarding COVID-19 and any possible exposure or symptoms. Have you run a fever of 100.5 or higher? Experienced abnormal shortness of breath, headache, body aches, cough, or loss of smell or taste in the last 14 days? Have you been exposed to anyone with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19? Traveled internationally or to any of the US hot spots? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you may be kindly asked to leave. Please respect the health and safety of your workout buddies, as well as yourself.
* Keep at least 6 feet apart from your workout buddies at all times.
* Wiping down of all touched surfaces is required. This includes your workout area where you may have sweat drops hit the floor. Simply put, wipe up after yourselves. A CDC-approved spray and wipes will be provided for you.
Even if you haven't been doing much activity during quarantine, not to worry! Your Pumped Up instructors will demonstrate different levels of intensity to help build your endurance slowly & safely. The routines are FUN, sing along with the music, and just MOVE. There's no wrong way to Zumba! Go at your pace, do what you can, and HAVE FUN. :)
We are SO looking forward to seeing everyone! The music, the laughter, movement, sweat and friendships that Pumped Up is all about! See you in class starting July 6!
Here at Pumped Up Dance Fitness, we incorporate strengthening with our Zumba classes. You can expect a playlist consisting of approximately 45 minutes of kick-butt cardio, which includes classic Zumba routines and choreography, in addition to routines designed to incorporate core work, punching, kicking, squats, etc. After the cardio portion, we grab our hand weights (or without!) and yoga mats for 20 minutes of arm, ab, torso & leg/booty work, finishing up with a yoga-inspired stretch. Total class time for Z with strengthening is 65-70 minutes. Your instructors will demonstrate different levels of progression for each routine, so no matter your personal level of fitness, you will get a great workout!
STRONG by Zumba is not dance! SBZ is Zumba's version of a HITT program - High Intensity Tempo Training - where every move has a beat, every beat has a move. SBZ has brought in world-class athletes to create a strengthening format where we use our bodies to build muscle & burn calories. The choreography for this 60-minute format has been reverse-engineered to amazing music, where every drum beat is a kick, every cymbal strike is a punch. Your SBZ instructors will demonstrate base moves, modifications and progressions, so no matter your body type, level of fitness or endurance, SBZ is for everyone!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our ribbon-cutting celebration!
Without our participants, there would be no Pumped Up. We are THRILLED to be able to provide this platform, bringing people together to work out in a safe, fun, positive environment where you can work on becoming a stronger, healthier version of yourself for a mere $5 per class.
