WHAT IS UPLIFT?

SHiNE Dance Fitness has cracked the code to create a strength-training program that’s the perfect balance of effective and HELLA FUN! In fact, UPLIFT so much fun it turns fitness LOATHERS into LOVERS and LOVERS into ADDICTS. This is not a dance class, but each routine is choreographed to iconic music, and when safety isn’t compromised, you’re likely to find a booty shake or shimmy. 

A 1-hour UPLIFT class starts with a cardio warm-up and transitions to standing routines with equipment, alternating between upper and lower body. A balance track is included after you’ve fatigued your muscles which is challenging, rewarding, and a welcome change of pace before transitioning to the mat. We complete the workout with routines for the core, booty, abs, and chest and a cool down with deep stretching. This UPLIFTING experience leaves you feeling strong and confident. 

UPLIFT EQUIPMENT

A variety of equipment is used in UPLIFT to receive the benefits that each offers and keep the class engaging and fun. Branded bands and balls are available for purchase in the SHiNE Shop. Most items can also be found locally or through alternative online vendors.

Please note that students are responsible for bringing their own equipment to the studio. We have some extra equipment for class use, but we can't guarantee there will be enough for everyone due to our class sizes! If you bring your own equipment, you are welcome to store it at the studio with ours.

DUMBBELLS 1-15 LBS (0.5-7 KG)

Several different size dumbbells are used throughout an UPLIFT set. Students are encouraged to bring 3 pairs of dumbbells: one light, one medium, one heavy. However, many exercises can be done with one pair of light-to-medium weights, or bodyweight only. There are some extra dumbbells at the studio, but we can't guarantee there will be enough for everyone. 

Recommended weights for those new to strength training:

  • Light 1-3 lbs (0.5-1.5 kg) , Medium 3-5 lbs (1.5-2.5 kg), and Heavy 5-8 lbs (2.5-3.5 kg)

Recommended for those experienced with strength training:

  • Light 1-5 lbs (0.5-2.5 kg), Medium 5-10 lbs (2.5-4.5 kg), and Heavy 10-15 lbs (4.5-7 kg)

BANDS

  • Resistance bands – 2″/5 cm rubber loop

  • Booty bands – 3″/8 cm fabric loop

If you’d prefer to invest in just one type of band, we recommend the latex resistance bands as they are slightly more versatile for this workout.

BALL (OPTIONAL)

We recommend a 9″/23 cm mini ball.

MAT (OPTIONAL)

We recommend a thicker mat for comfort, but any exercise mat will do!
