In a small dance studio inside of the Sierra 2 Center in Sacramento’s Curtis Park, LaToya Bufford is helping people reach their fitness goals with her high-energy fitness class, Dancehall PowerUP. The weekly hour-long class is an intense workout that incorporates an array of fitness and dance moves, all inspired by traditional dancehall reggae.
Bufford’s approach to fitness is all about fun and making sure all those who enter feel welcomed and encouraged.
“What’s unique about [the class] is that I think it appeals to many different ages, many different sizes, [and] many different colors,” said Bufford. “There’s diversity in there.”
Bufford let us join in on one of her sessions–and the resulting efforts left us breathless. View the video below:
