Zumba Instructor

Guillermo Melendez

Zumba is designed to bring everyone and anyone together to sweat it on. We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check. It’s a total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

Active Aging Assessments: Ten Testing and Exercise Tools and Tips

Thursday, March 31 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM CDT
Cost: $100
CECs: 4

Through this preconference, attendees will develop new skills to manage fitness and function in elderly clients. Sarcopenia is a major determinant of “frailty” and frail individuals are at greater risks of falls, fractures, institutionalization, physical dependence, and premature death. Through a combination of lecture, demonstration, and practice, attendees will learn simple field-based assessments and exercises, that can identify and mitigate many causes of frailty-related falls and fractures in older adult clients. During guided interactive practice sessions, Peter and Paul will teach participants evidence-based tools for working with older adults and for improving their balance, power and physical function.
