    Zumba classes have resumed at Keating Sports and will continue through May 1.  Classes will be held Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in one of the south racquetball courts.  I was fortunate enough to participate in last week's class and have only good things to say thus far.  The class was gratifying, fast paced, and geared to push you to your limits.  I would recommend it to anyone especially if you have been interested in working out but are looking for it to be a fun experience; this is just the class for you.
