Great aerobic workout without going to the gym. Weight training and stretching included. No prior exercise experience required. Instructor is Denise Boucher.

"Boomer Zumba," on Thursdays through Aug. 16, at 3:30 p.m.

Cardio fitness with a Latin flair that says "ditch the workout — join the party." Dance to Afro-Caribbean and Latin beats, with rock & roll, flamenco, belly dance, top 40 and hip hop. No dance experience is necessary, and the activity is great for all age levels. Participants choose the appropriate intensity with the help of instructor Katie Pina.
