"Fitness is all about having FUN. It should be an adventure that brings joy and leaves you feeling energized."
I have enjoyed being a student of group exercise classes for 30+ years, from Jazzercise to Step Aerobics to Kick Boxing to Spin and everything else in between. But it wasn't until "Zumba" that I was inspired enough to take it a step further. I was hooked. In 2011 I became a licensed Zumba Fitness instructor. Zumba combines dance and fitness moves with Latin based & International music but also includes all genres from oldies to today's hits. Zumba has several formats so it can include all ages and fitness levels. I am licensed in Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Sentao, Zumba Toning and Zumba Kids. It's a fun way to burn calories and stay in shape!
