She said she tries to make Dance2Fit With Sylvia “more than just a workout class.”
“I wanted to open the fitness studio as an opportunity to offer people of all ages and all abilities a place to feel welcome and to have fun while getting fit with absolutely no judgment,” she said. “At Dance2Fit With Sylvia, we’re more than just a workout class. We are a family. We will encourage you and push you to be the best you can be.”
Not everyone enjoys dance fitness, but if Dance2Fit with Sylvia can find something that is fun for everyone and fitness can be fun for everyone.
“You won’t stick with anything that isn’t fun for you so we want to find something that is fun for everyone,” Hammons said. “That may be a Boot Camp, that maybe dance fitness, that may be step aerobics. But we want to make fitness fun for everyone again.”
Hammons said besides the “no judgment” motto, the business also doesn’t care about a clients age, shape, size or level of fitness level
“We want you to have an amazing and fun workout, and you’re going to meet some absolutely amazing and supportive people in the meantime,” she said.
Hammons said she decided to open the dance studio on Hamilton’s Main Street because she is “all about supporting our local schools and businesses” and excited to partner with many of them offering fitness classes.
She said the best part of being on Main Street during its revitalization is the camaraderie among the small businesses.
“I’ve become very close friends with a number of the small business owners and we all look out for one another,” Hammons said. “We promote each other and each other‘s businesses.”
The largest class size is about 30, the maximum the studio will hold. Classes cost $5 each and discounts are available via 10-class pass for $45. A full schedule can be found at www.tinyurl.com/dance2fitwithsylvia. Dance2Fit With Sylvia is online on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
