“Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.” ― Martha Graham
Co-Owners Sara and Heather met teaching Zumba® so dance fitness will always be an integral part of Just Move! We strive to offer the hottest dance fitness around and even create our own formats to get people moving to a variety of music. No dance experience is necessary for dance fitness classes. Just be willing to lose yourself in the music and have fun!
We were the first facility in the Kalamazoo/Portage area to offer WERQ®, the fiercely fun dance fitness workout class based on pop, rock, and hip-hop music taught by Certified Fitness Professionals. The signature WERQ® warmup previews the dance steps used in class and the signature WERQ™ cooldown includes balance and yoga inspired poses. We went from offering one class per week to 6 and have inspired many of our WERQaholics to become WERQ instructors! We love using the WERQ name and music to create special themed classes and parties, including our annual FireWERQs Summer Party, Get Lucky St. Patrick’s Day WERQ, and CharityWERQ® fundraisers.
Zumba is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. At Just Move, we are proud to bring Aqua Zumba® to the community through collaboration with Portage Public Schools. There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba® class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles. It is perfect for those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine. We also give kids ages 4-9 the chance to have a Zumba class all their own with Zumba Kids! Zumba® Kids classes feature kid-friendly routines based on original Zumba® choreography. We break down the steps, add games, activities and cultural exploration elements into the class structure. We love to bring Zumba Kids into the community too so contact us for more details!
We are the first location in the Kalamazoo/Portage area to offer OLD SKOOL®, an energizing dance cardio format set to pop, rock & hip hop from the 80s, 90s, and 00s! We’ll make the classic tunes hip again and get fit at the same time. Created by WMU Grad Julie Steffen, this workout will be sure to have you singing and sweating! No dance experience necessary!
Balance, Agility, Resistance, Recovery & Eloquence. LeBarre combines the hottest method of dance inspired conditioning, ballet barre training adapted for the General Fitness Population, with body weight resistance and traditional fitness using the Lebert EQUALIZER to create a workout like no other. Get LeBarre…Be LeAwesome!
This original class will strengthen, sculpt and stretch your entire body in this workout that uses steps and techniques from ballet and pilates. We use gliding disks, resistance bands, small balls and more to really target the glutes and core.
Drum Core boasts a workout for your body AND your brain, while you move to the beat that you create while drumming! This whole body workout incorporates both cardio and toning, and is designed to be either low, mid or high impact- you decide how hard you work! Using provided drum sticks and an exercise ball or the floor as your drum, your instructor will challenge you to keep moving to the ever-changing rhythm of the music!
POMSQUAD Fitness is a heart-pounding, fat-blasting, smile-inducing workout consisting of simple pom routines, full body sculpting, and a squad mentality. We want you to have a great time, challenge yourself physically, and walk out of class smiling, sweaty, and excited for next time. We provide the poms, you bring the pep! No one else in the Kalamazoo/Portage area offers this class that is taking Chicago by storm!
