Savage Fit is a fitness studio at the Historic Savage Mill. They have been at the New Weave Building since its culmination in November 2010, and specialize in dance aerobic classes like Zumba.
Zumba is a style of fitness that combines 70 percent Latin flavors and movements and 30 percent other influences. A dance-fitness style that originated in Miami, Zumba has become the next fitness sensation in America. Part of it's success, according to its proponents, is it's use of N.I.A.
N.I.A.--Neuromuscular Intergrative Action-- is an aerobic technique that combines nine elements that are a part of the martial arts, dance and healing arts.
Instructor Claudia Salomon believes that N.I.A. is about "finding joy, the pleasure principle, and cleaning the chakras and energy centers in your body."
There are 52 original N.I.A. movements but each N.I.A. instructor is able to bring their own individual interpretations of these 52 moves to create a truly unique class experience.
N.I.A. borrows from the martial arts where a student can advance within a belt system from black belt, brown belt, blue belt, and white belt.
Other classes offered are pilates classes, which enable individuals to increase the strength, flexibility and control of the body through the control of muscles in your body as well as yoga classes.
The studio will be relocating to the Cottonshed Building to expand class sessions and meet ups. Instructors are excited to continue bringing Zumba, N.I.A, pilates, and yoga classes at their new location starting June 1.
Savage Fit has a variety of classes that can accomodate an array of schedules. Some classes start as early as 8 a.m. and others don't start until 7:30 p.m. Check out their website for more information about the classes offered at Savage Fit.
