These are a few of our commonly asked questions. If you have a question that has not been addressed here, please feel free to contact me directly and I will be more than happy to answer it for you.
Q. Can I bring my child with me to class?
If your child is under the age of 18, but older than 10 and wants to participate, yes you may bring your child given the understanding that they are to be signed for on a waiver by a parent or legal guardian over the age of 18. Please keep in mind that some choreographed moves are geared more towards an adult as they can be suggestive and/or aggressive and aren’t necessarily child friendly.
Sommer Time Fitness is licensed, but not yet offering Zumba Kids/Kids, Jr. or any other such child friendly fitness programs at this time. Parents are strongly advised to NOT bring toddlers or babies to class as we are focused on medium to high impact moves which could harm your child or other participants if being carried on your person or if they are running around during class. Please note that our facility does offer childcare for an additional fee. Please contact the facility prior to class to facilitate the need for a sitter to be available.
For classes such as Baby & Me (when offered), yes children between the ages of 16 weeks to 4 years are strongly encouraged as the workout program is focused around mommy and baby exercise and bonding.
Q. What does it cost to participate in your classes?
- Drop-In – 1 Class – $7.00
- 10 Class Punch Pass $40.00
- 20 Class Punch Pass $75.00
Q. Is childcare offered?
Q. I bought a Groupon how does this work?
Q. My Groupon is due to expire, but I haven’t made it to class, can you extend it?
In short, no. As much as I’d like to, Groupon has set parameters on the vouchers that I must abide by. The most I can do is extend your use by date by two days, no more than that.
Q. Can I pay for my Groupon in person when I come to class?
No. The prices paid on Groupon are an online deal only and are not transferable in-person. If you wish to pay for a punch pass in class, it is $40.00 (cash or credit) for 10 classes or $75.00 (cash or credit) for 20 classes that are good for 30 days and 60 days from the date of your purchase (meaning you have 30 days to use the card from your date of purchase).
Q. Do I need a mat for class?
ZUMBA (or any of it’s specialties):
Yes. This class is working your entire body using minimal equipment with a primary focus on your midsection and your legs and butt. At times we may ask you to bring additional equipment with you IF YOU HAVE IT. If not, it will be provided for your use. This class is typically 30 to 45 mins long.
Yes. We combine both standing and floor exercises throughout this class.
Q. Do I need to register or sign-up for classes?
For our regularly scheduled classes, no a pre sign-up or registration is not required; merely show up for class and have fun.
Other classes such as Aqua Zumba, Bootcamp and Personal Training you WILL need to visit the corresponding page on my website to pre-pay and register for the class to ensure your spot in the class.
Q. The YMCA says I can’t use my punch pass I purchased from you, why?
The YMCA is a separate entity from Sommer Time Fitness and therefore requires a separate drop-in fee and liability waiver paid to them directly. If you would like to participate in any of my classes at the YMCA, please be aware of the fact you will need to pay their required $10 drop in fee prior to class starting if you are not already a member. Occasionally the Y does offer free GroupX classes without being a member, merely ask at the front desk about these dates when you stop by.
