"I enjoy Anna's classes because it's fun, everything else, the physical, mental and social side is an added bonus. There are some great people in the classes and we all have a good laugh. You don't need to be good (speaking about myself here) just go along and enjoy yourself"
Tim, our Zumba bloke!
Is Zumba for me?
I've been teaching Zumba now for nearly 10 years! (Wow that has gone so fast!) and if it's even possible I love it even more every time I teach it! If you are the first on the dance floor at weddings or you are after exercise in disguise then you will LOVE Zumba!
Zumba can be low-impact so those of you that don't want to jump around like a loon will be more comfortable. There are some quick direction changes and pivoting motions so those of you with dodgy knees and ankles will need to speak to me beforehand so we can talk about movements you should avoid.
It is official, I love Zumba and so do my classes. I think it's safe to say the Zumba crew are a little bit insane but mad in a good way! After you have mastered the basics, Zumba is a phenomenal workout - as the instructor I burn around 350-500kcals per class depending on how mental I go. It's especially good for tummies and legs, amazing for co-ordination and brain training. Zumba is a great cardio workout so is good for the heart and lungs too!

Zumba feels like it is changing all the time, but actually when you've been coming for a while you will see all the basic moves are the same. It takes around 8-12 weeks to feel like you are in the zone so don't give up!
"No matter how bad things have got in the past and when motivation has been low I always have sooooo much fun at Zumba and feel so much better after. Its the great bunch of people definitely and the greatness of Annanana herself that makes it so special and totally epppppiccc every time"
Tanya, a serious Zumba addict!
