"When I was first introduced to Zumba® in 2006, I immediately fell in love with the program! Zumba® is a combination of fitness, Latin and Hip-Hop based dance moves; how can you beat that! Zumba® not only exercises the heart and lungs, but it also strengthens and tones. From the abdominal muscles, gluteus muscles, arms and legs, you'll get it through crunches, lunges, arm curls and squats. Plus it teaches and improves your dance skills! If you want to have fun and burn calories at the same time, this is your class! I really enjoy the Zumba® program, and strive to deliver the Zumba® experience in every class! The Zumba® experience is like no other and if you haven't taken a Zumba® class before, you have to! It will honestly change your life! Come out and party with us! You have nothing to lose except stress, worries and a whole lot of pounds!
See you soon!"
