The Zumba Gold class

The Zumba Gold class

Cheryl Ludeman

If you are looking for a modified Zumba® class that recreates the original moves you love at a lower-intensity, Zumba Gold is the class for you and now you can join one of those classes at SaddleBrooke Ranch.

Residents are rocking to the beat with one-hour Zumba Gold and 45-minute Zumba Gold Toning classes in the group fitness room at the Hacienda Club. Ranch resident Cheryl Ludeman teaches both classes, and you can join in whenever you like. You don’t need to bring any special equipment just dress in comfortable work-out clothes and come to class. Zumba Toning sticks are provided as needed, or if you have a set you may bring your own.

Both classes introduce easy-to-follow Zumba® choreography that focuses on balance, range of motion and coordination. Come ready to join in the fun and prepare to leave empowered and feeling great. The classes focus on elements of fitness: cardiovascular, muscular conditioning, flexibility and balance in a low-impact format. With Zumba Gold you can make your moves your own and do what works for you.

The drop-in price is $7 for each class, or you can purchase one of the discount class cards. These cards are good for any of Cheryl’s classes through May 2016. Try your very first class for only $5.

You decide what works for you. Attend classes one, two, three or four days a week. Leaving town? No problem. Come to class when you get back. Cheryl’s program is made for you!

There are Zumba Gold classes on Monday and Friday mornings at 8:30 a.m. and Thursday mornings at 11:00 a.m. Zumba Gold Toning classes are on Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. Be sure to check Cheryl’s website at cludeman.zumba.com for current and future classes. Times are subject to change so be sure to check the website, email Cheryl at [email protected], or check out the weekly “Ranch Reminder” email.

It’s always good to check with your medical provider to make sure which exercise program is right for you.
