Zumba Step is a new program offered by Zumba at the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Fitness Center and Hickam Fitness Center for patrons.
Zumba Step allows participants to take their lower body workouts and calorie burning to new heights. It is designed to help tone and strengthen glutes and legs with a blend of Zumba routines and step aerobics.
It is also designed to produce maximum results in an easy-to-follow fitness-party atmosphere. This class is geared to anyone more than 10 years of age who loves to dance and do step.
Only seven instructors on the island of Oahu are teaching this program, according to Lori Gaynor, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Fitness Center manager.
Tewauna Raymundo is the only instructor teaching Zumba Step at JBPHH and the other military bases.
Patrons say they have felt a difference in their legs and enjoy the program as a variation of the Zumba Fitness format.
Gaynor said that the last 10 to 15 minutes of this class is focused on strengthening participants’ core muscles.
Zumba Step will be on Fridays at JBPHH from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. Starting July 30, Hickam Fitness Center will be offering this class every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. For more information, call 471-2019 or 448-221
