I have been going to Valeo Fit 1000 for just over two months now and I can't get enough! The class helps me burn 1000 calories in an hour and I try to make it four times a week. Asiya makes this intense workout fun with her infectious energy, constantly mixing it up to keep it interesting. Just when I have time to learn the routines, it's a new week with new stuff. My body never adjusts and I always leave drenched in sweat, exhausted, with a huge smile on my face! We do a ton of latin-inspired hip hop and other hip hop dance for cardio in addition to interval training with a variety of different types of strength work, like light weights or resistance bands, and sometimes pompoms! My favorite is the hoola hoop. 4.5 minutes of hoola hooping is a really fun way to work on my abs. And of course there are results! My arms are definitely more toned, my waist is smaller, and believe it or not, my inner thighs have more definition! To sum it up: you gotta try it!
BEST WORKOUT EVER!!! I don't think you can find anything like this in Atlanta. The instructor/owner came up with this new way to lose 1000 calories in an hour. It is a fast paced workout so you won't have a chance to get bored or think that you are tired. One style of dance follows another, sometimes you dance with weights, other times with resistance bands. Half way through Asiya throws in hula hoops. It is just fun. You get to dance tango to improve your balance and rock & roll or Greek traditional dance for cardio. You never know what other new style of dance you get to try. Definitely worth a try. Park in a back and try to register for the class or come in the morning (classes tend to fill up fast).
I went to my first Valeo Fit 1000 class today and LOVED it. It was a real workout, but it changed so frequently that just as you were getting exhausted, you were on to another muscle group/type of exercise-- I loved that "mixing it up" meant different styles, hula hoops, coin belts, yoga balls, etc, instead of just a collection of step aerobics moves like at some fitness studios. The instructor, Asiya, was fun and engaging, and the class had students of all ages and body types. Once my Groupon classes run out, I'm definitely going to buy a class card.ETA: I didn't even wait a week to buy a class card! I scheduled myself for twice a week originally, but now I'm going three times a week. I've been doing all sorts of Zumba and Capoeira classes, but the Valeo classes are hands down my favorite.
This past Labor Day I had my wedding and because of Asiya it was one of the most memorable nights of my life. We contacted her in May because we wanted to start taking dance lessons and do a fun dance. I wanted to dance to Dirty Dancing but my wife thought that was way to cheesy. We both agreed on "Sing, Sing, Sing" by Bennie Goodman which was a 3.5 minute song and very tough. Ou first appointment Asiya already had the dance laid out and had us start working on the basics. We did a total of 12 lessons and was the best investment EVER. The first dance usually sets the tone not just for a wedding but also for a marriage. We didn't do our dance for our guests but we did it for us. Both of us work so much so it gave us time to hang out with each other while getting in a workout each session. Asiya is an AMAZING teacher that does research knows how to explain it so even a beginner can understand. We had zero knowledge or skill in dancing so this was definitely challenging but with Asiya's help she made it possible.
When I first moved to Atlanta I was looking for a way to have fun and meet new people. I heard about Valeo Fit 1000 through a coworker and went to my first complimentary class with her. That was year ago and I am so glad I found this! I am a former dancer and was looking for a fun, non competitive, upbeat way to get any sort of dance back into my life (it has been a few years since I have done anything remotely athletic). It is a fun environment with no pressure whatsoever. I cannot speak highly enough of this class! Asiya is one of the most well rounded, welcoming, and fun dancers I have encountered. Her enthusiasm and energy are unmatched. Her welcoming spirit makes all dancers feel comfortable no matter if they have danced for 10 years or 10 seconds--she truly cares about this class which is refreshing.
ValeoFit 1000 is my favorite work out I have found-- BY FAR!! You can't beat the routines, music and the people in the class!!! It really is a great workout that combines everything from cardio/ dance, hula hoops, to yoga balls and floor work. Asiya is awesome and everyone should try it-- you won't be disappointed!
There aren't enough words to describe how fun and beneficial this class is! I give it 5 stars and two thumbs up and highly recommend it for your life and health!
I've tried many fitness programs in Vienna and Atlanta, and ValeoFit 1000 is hands down my favorite one. Musik selection is amazing which makes the class fun plus toning exercises with weighted hula hoop are amazing. I love this class!
The most fun I have ever had exercising in my life. I have tried everything and never stuck with it. I look forward to each and every class. I am loosing weight and inches and most important, getting fit and stronger all the time. So happy I found Valeo Fit 1000!
Valeo is my favorite fitness class ever! It is so much fun, with great music and routines, that I almost forget I'm working out. Asiya is a very inventive instructor and mixes up the routines every few weeks so that I'm never bored with it.
I love this class so much!!! I highly recommend it. It's a great workout for the mind, body, and soul. I look forward to every class and am actually sad when I have to miss it!! Everyone should try it at least once...but be ready because you will get hooked. Great combination of fun music and awesome dance routines....led by a really positive, energetic instructor!!! Asiya is the BEST!!!
I really couldn't think of anything better to do after work then just kind of escaping into dancing. Thank you Asiya, you are the best!!
