About the Workouts

What is Cardio Sweat Party? The name says it all! Cardio Sweat Party mashes up kickboxing and dance with high intensity athletic drills, resistance training, and motivational mantras to energizing music. Recognized as NYC’s Top 3 Cardio classes to take, Cardio Sweat Party will leave you feeling empowered to take on whatever comes your way. This is the most fun (and sweaty) workout you’ll ever experience. Expect to walk away feeling high off cardio!

What is STRONG by Zumba™? It’s a High Intensity Music Led Interval Training class using more traditional fitness moves for a more athletic, conditioning-style workout. You use your own body weight as resistance to achieve muscle definition. There are movements inspired by dance but these are limited compared to a Zumba® class, so it’s perfect for those not comfortable in a full-out dance class. 

What is Shakedown Fitness? Brought to you by the creator of the Harlem Shake, this workout combines old-school hip-hop dance moves with fitness and cardio elements to provide a full-body workout.

Do I need to bring anything?

Yes. Please bring any props or items you may need to enhance your workout such as towels, mats, blocks, straps, blankets  … and water is always a good idea.

How do I check out headphones?

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Whats the scoop with the waitlist?

If the event sells out, we’ll open up a waitlist. If we have any cancellations you’ll be notified so you can snag yourself a spot!
