FIT CHICKS BOOTCAMP & SIGNATURE WORKOUTS
Get your sweat on indoors & out with our signature FIT CHICKS high intensity interval workouts like “I heart Tabatas”, “8 Steps to Fabulousness” & “The Dirty 30”. Our “tough love approach will have you sweating (and laughing!) up a storm while using all the elements nature (& Horseshoe Resort!) has to offer. But don’t let the cute chicks fool you – this is not a girlie workout!
ZUMBA® BY FIT CHICKS
Shake your tail feather, burn tons of calories have a blast while doing it! We will kick off this super fierce weekend with ZUMBA®, an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party™ (especially when taught FIT CHICKS style!)
