LaBlast Classes at Pritikin

Louis van Amstel from the hit TV series Dancing with the Stars recently led Pritikin guests in a fun, fast-paced, dance-based, LaBlast Master Class.

Pritikin Health Resort
Pritikin provides an all-inclusive, medically-supervised program in a resort setting to guests looking to get serious about their health. Guests stay in luxurious accommodations, dine on healthy and delicious meals, attend eye-opening lectures, fun fitness classes, cooking classes and more.

After Season 2 of Dancing with the Stars, Louis decided to create a partner-free dance program for everyone, amateurs and professionals alike. His goal was for people to get fit while having fun dancing. In just a few short years, the program became so popular that Louis decided to take his show on the road and introduce LaBlast to a worldwide audience.

We are excited to announce that Pritikin is the first facility in the state of Florida to have a certified LaBlast instructor on our team!

Our fitness instructor, Maria Ojeda, was so inspired by the LaBlast class that just two days later she took the training to become a certified instructor.

Fast forward a few weeks and we added a weekly LaBlast Class led by Maria Ojeda to our permanent schedule.

Maria is one of our most popular instructors, and we are happy to see her add another class to her repertoire!

Maria Ojeda Teaches LaBlast at Pritikin
“It’s hard to stay sluggish or tired in my fitness classes,” laughs Maria Ojeda.

Meet Maria Ojeda

A few years ago, while searching for a fun way to get her body in better shape, Maria Ojeda discovered fitness dancing. After practicing it for some time, she became a certified instructor. In 2011, Maria secured the opportunity to introduce fitness dance to Pritikin’s guests on a trial basis, starting with one class per week. The class soon became a guest favorite, and now all fitness dance classes offered during the week are very popular and very much enjoyed by all. Besides the original certification, Maria has gained may other certifications. Maria loves teaching LaBlast Fitness classes to Pritikin guests; it is a highly popular and fun dance program currently making a splash in many cities worldwide.
