MixxedFit® is a people-inspired fitness program that combines explosive dance movements with bodyweight toning. Everything about this dance fitness program is explosive– movements are big, full-out, and our very best!
Bootcamp-inspired exercises are combined with easy-to-follow choreography for an effective, FUN, and challenging workout. No equipment or floorwork necessary. Whether you’re plateauing in your traditional dance fitness class, or you’re not the kind of person who usually goes to fitness classes but loves a good sweat set to great music, this may be just the perfect medicine.
