WAYNESBURG, PA For six weeks this fall, the Greene County Department of Recreation will offer fitness classes from “A” to “Z.” Aerobics classes will run from 6 to 7 p.m. every Tuesday from Sept. 25 through Oct. 30, and classes in the fitness program Zumba will be offered from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursdays from Sept. 27 through Nov. 1. Both series of classes will be held in the 4-H Building at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Waynesburg.
Individual classes can be attended at a cost of $8 per class. Anyone wishing to attend all six weeks, however, can pre-register at a discounted rate of $5 per class, for a total of $30 per class series. The early registration deadlines are Monday, Sept. 24, for aerobics and Wednesday, Sept. 26, for Zumba.
Instructor Shastina Humble will lead both series of classes. Attendees should wear sweat-absorbing clothes and good support shoes, such as cross-training or dance shoes, and bring water and towels.
The aerobics classes are designed for both high-intensity and low-intensity workouts. Aerobic exercise conditions the heart and lungs; other benefits include increased energy and stamina, toned muscles, decreased tension and improved mood.
The fitness program Zumba combines Latin and international music with dynamic, yet simple exercise moves. Benefits of Zumba include efficient calorie-burning, muscle toning and cardiovascular improvement. Zumba is recognized by leading fitness organizations, including the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America, the American Council on Exercise and Can-Fit-Pro, a Canadian fitness education organization.
