It’s no secret that we all love to eat and explore fun food options at We Heart Astoria, but along with that also comes balance and an active lifestyle, which we support.  Recently featuring a Finally Fridays dedicated to working out, we wanted to give a bit more love to one of these wonderful (and local) active lifestyle businesses, we’ve tried first-hand, which is Simply Fit Astoria.

Known in the nabe for its wonderful (and frequent) Zumba classes, Simply Fit promotes living healthy, being active and having fun while doing it.  Founder and owner, Lisa Eskenazi has an infectious passion for what she does, making her classes full of positive energy and fun.  Recently taking a salsa class myself, I didn’t know what to expect, and was hoping it wouldn’t be too intimidating for a novice like me.

The class surpassed my expectations and then some.  While it wasn’t overly crowded, it had a good amount of people where you can still kind of blend in and observe what was going on.  Well despite being a newbie to this class and this style of dancing, I did no such thing.  First row baby…there I was.  It was exciting and so enjoyable to follow the choreography created for us by instructor, Edwin who was fabulous.  His moves were mighty impressive and more than anything I just enjoyed dancing to upbeat, sensual Latin music.  While most of the class consists of group dancing, there’s also one-on-one partner choreography, which is a lot harder than it looks.  I’ll admit, I flat out sucked at that portion, but had a good time doing it – burning calories and smiling ear to ear at the same time.  I can’t wait to try Zumba there soon, and hope you have a chance to give it a try as well.

Here’s a link to their class schedule – please enjoy and let Lisa know we sent you.
