JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If you're looking to spice up your workout, a local woman is bringing a new fitness fad to the First Coast.
It's called Zumba Sentao and it involves a chair, but there's no sitting involved.
Instructor, Brenda Humphreys says the choreography is centered around the chair and incorporates body weight resistance training, making the class tougher than a typical Zumba class. "You're doing tricep dips, lunges, squats," says Humphreys.
Participant Shona Gorrie agrees, "I think you're fooled by thinking the chair's there for support, but by the end of the first class, I could hardly walk."
Humphreys is the first and only instructor to teach Zumba Sentao in Jacksonville.
