Sh'Bam on the News and in the Canton Merritt Athletic Club

There is no one formula for getting in shape. That is what makes fitness so fun! There are so many ways to work your body out and I have spent the last 18 years learning about them all. I have trained in Spinning, Kickboxing, Fittrek, Gliding, Bodypump, Bosu, Balletone, Pilates, Yoga, Nutrition, Personal Training, Zumba, Hip Hop, Kettlebell, Metcon, Urban Rebounding, Shockwave, and the list goes on. I have found it fascinating to learn about all the different types of fitness programs that are out there and it has convinced me that there really is something for everyone. Last week I had the opportunity to take Sh'Bam at the Merritt Athletic Club in Canton with fitness instructor, Katie Gunthrie, who had a ton of energy and made the workout really fun! It was a dance workout similar to Zumba with choreography that was simple, yet intense. I found myself sweating more than I expected, and having fun singing along with the music. For those of you that like to dance, check out this class on Monday nights at 5:15pm with Katie at the Canton Merritt. Go ahead, give it a try!
