WORKING TOWARDS 2018 - new year - new you, new shape, new confidence, new moves, new friends!!!  

Please be assured that I am not affiliated with any slimming group, shake, protein bars or any other weight loss program.  I teach my classes without trying to sell you anything or get you to join any group.  The aim of my Zumba classes is that you attend, have a great hour for your own personal reasons - lose weight and get fit, stay fit, just have an hour off from the kids, meet new people etc.  you come for your own reasons and I will always respect that.


After teaching Zumba classes for over 6 years I can give you a class that not only increases your fitness levels, but also gives you opportunity to gain confidence and make new friends. What's not to love about that?


So, Zumba, sometimes it's a bit daunting, especially the first class you go to.  People know what they're doing, they know what direction their going in, their woop wooping at the right time!  Well, yes, but everyone starts sometime, at the beginning everyone is all over the shop!  You go one way, everyone else it seems is going the other way!  They're jumping, you're tapping your toes! IT DOESN'T MATTER!  People who come to Zumba are the friendliest people you'll meet in a fitness class.  Zumba is as much as social event as it is fitness. So dont' be shy, come along or bring a friend, soon you'll be one of the regs and people will want to be like you - confident.


I am licensed to teach all sorts of Zumba classes, and I do!  We have a range -


Regular Zumba - it's high impact cardio


Low Impact Zumba - it's a regular Zumba class, but I've taken out the high impact, so no jumps and the moves are not too fast, but not slow at all!  Great for those new to fitness or just returning, or have joint or mobility issues but don't want a slower pace of class.


Zumba Gold - specifically correographed for the older active adult, or those who require a seated class.  The moves are full range, and the impact is take out.  Full workout.


Aqua Zumba - in thewater, what else can I say!  This class is great for those who again want low impact (the water takes all that away from you) and want want an hour of less loose silliness. This is a great cardio workout and brill for the upperbody as they water is used for resistance.


Zumba Toning - using maraca style weights, (1lb or 2.5lb) this is a workout aimed at toning the upper body whilst still getting the Zumba workout.


Zumba Sentao - we use a chair as your partner. But his is no seated class. The chair is used as a tool for workout out the core and large muscle groups.  Tricep dips, lunges, ab crunches, this class has it all.
