REFIT will offer a chance to get the heart rate to the beat of a few dance tunes at their fourth anniversary bash today.
The bash will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at 3003 Mulberry Ave, Muscatine. The free dance party is in celebration of the fitness spot’s birthday, marking its debut in November 2013. It’ll feature the regular workout, door prizes, refreshments and more.
“It amazes me some days that we are still here, I have learned and grown so much,” said lead instructor and owner Kaye Miller. “I started out as a participant, who never even thought she would like dance fitness. When I saw and felt the changes it made in me, I knew I wanted others to feel that strength and healing too.”
But she said the business has not only survived, but thrived.
“Not only is it an amazing format, I was the first Certified Iowa instructor and the only one for two years,” Miller said. “Now we have over 30 instructor across the state. Those classes can be found in the Waterloo, Ankeny, Vinton, and Northwest Iowa. If folks want to find classes they can go to REFITREV.com and search under class locator.”
There’s no childcare available for the free birthday event, but kids ages 9-and-up are welcome to join in and dance with participating adults.
“This event is a celebration for all of the successes, both the participants and for us as a group, it is worth celebrating!” Miller said.
As for future plans for her business, she said she’s looking forward to the typical bump in enrollment with the new year and it’s typical resolutions for fitness, and likewise anticipating more growth and success stories with her clients.
“Our future plans are to still be here providing fitness classes for this community,” Miller said. “I look forward to continuing to add more toning and strengthening to our routines, but also to building on to the relationships we foster in class and out with each other. Maybe we can even add a class or two into the schedule as the numbers of participants grow.”
