New exercise added to church Zumba night

Feb. 08, 2014 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church has added piloxing to its Monday evening Zumba exercise program. Sessions are from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Mondays in the church fellowship hall at 5th Avenue and 10th Street, downtown Huntington.

Piloxing, according to instructor William "Tootie" Carter, is a cardio fusion of standing pilates, boxing and dance.

"Pilates are conditioning exercises that focus on core strength, endurance, breathing and balance. The boxing moves focus on strength training and cardio workout," Carter said in a news release.

The majority of the hour remains devoted to Zumba which involves choreographed aerobic and dance moves featuring Latin music.

Cost for each session is $5. Parking is free in the 6th Avenue lot behind the church, and participants use the 10th Street doors.
