CARDIO BOXING

LADIES ONLY! Cardio boxing uses the fundamentals of boxing to achieve an intense cardio workout.  Participants will strike a heavy bag during the class which will require wraps and gloves (purchased by the participant).  Drills incorporating jabs, crosses, hooks, and uppercuts will ensure the cardiovascular system is challenged, while pushups, sit-ups, squats, lunges, and running will tone and trim the body. Jumps and jarring movements are part of the class but can be modified or eliminated if required/desired.

This class is for women who want to challenge themselves while building relationships with other participants.  We work in a positive atmosphere with encouragement and recognition.

This class is for all levels of fitness but participants must be able to move from the floor to a standing position without assistance. This class is 45 minutes; participants are requested to bring water, towel and dress to work out. Classes will be Tuesday & Thursday at 5:00AM at the Deuce Fitness Room, Suite # 5, 150 North Yucca Street. There is a fee for this program; please inquire with the Mesquite Recreation Center.

Two New Class Offered at the Mesquite Recreation Center

The Mesquite Recreation Center is now offering a “Zumba® Basic” and “Abs, Buns & Thigh” class.

The Zumba® Basic class take place on Monday and Wednesday at 10 a.m. Zumba® is an easy to follow cardio workout that lets you move to the beat at your own speed. It’s an invigorating, community-oriented dance-fitness class that feels fresh, and most of all, exhilarating! This class provides modified, low impact moves for beginners, and active adults.   The sweating, dancing, and occasionally shouting involved in Zumba will release stress and tension in a person’s body.  Come join and meet Zumba® fitness instructor, Griseyda Belalcazar.

The second class taught by Belalcazar is the “Abs, Buns and Thigh” class held 3 times per week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 5:30 p.m.  This class is a complete package offering a mix of various core exercises. This high intensity class consists of floor aerobics, core training and strength conditioning, a great way to try a personal training in a group format.

Begin with 5-7 minutes of warm up, move directly into 35-40 minutes of mixed impact aerobics moves.  The exercises in the Abs, Buns & Thighs class tone and strengthen the Abdominal (Abs), Glute (Buns), Thighs (Hamstring, Adductors & Quadriceps) muscles. Every workout is different which makes it more effective and keeps it interesting.

By targeting a few muscle groups, you will be able to see quick and noticeable results in those stubborn areas!  Everything you are looking for in one hour!  This class is an excellent option for beginners, those on a maintenance training program, and intermediate to advance students.  All fitness levels welcome!  It is highly recommended to bring a towel and a water bottle.

No one leaves these classes without sweating!  Both classes are free to Recreation Center pass-holders and a small fee will be charged for non-Pass holders.  Drop-ins welcome!
