Zumba is so much fun!

If you are someone who goes to the gym and counts the minutes until your workout is over…it may be time for you to try something different.

I was there once too…

I used to go to the gym and get on a treadmill and within 4 minutes (and I may be stretching that a little to make it seem like I really gave it all I had to make it to 5 minutes…) all I could think of was how long I had to keep doing this to reach the end.

Sound familiar?

Don’t get me wrong.  The gym can be GREAT! Some people really love it and I encourage my clients to switch it up and go if it inspires them. Trying different things can keep you from plateauing in your workouts.

When I found Zumba, my first reaction to the video I watched was “This is AMAZING!! I wanna do this!”

When I found my first class and went my first reaction was (tons of laughter from me) and “What the heck am I doing? I must look like a clown right now!”

The difference between yoga classes and Zumba classes (besides the obvious differences) is this…when you laugh and can’t stop in is fun and contagious….when you laugh and can’t stop in yoga…they kick you out…

I learned that one on my own too

(hence why I also teach Laughter Yoga…Kinda more my style)

After taking a few Zumba classes (started out with one a week), I began to know the moves a little more and fell in love with music and how FAST the class went.  I felt like I just stepped into class and suddenly we were at the cooldown.


Just like that I was sweaty, relaxed and DONE my workout!! Felt so good!!

Each week came with more moves, new rhythms and then this class called Zumba Toning started and class was different but still as much fun as regular Zumba.  Then came Zumba Senato!!

What??!! All this from the Zumba Family??

The great part was that this class gave me a new way to continue doing what I loved and a new way to work my muscles so I didn’t plateau in my workouts.


Fast forward to 10 years now…2 years as a student and coming up 8 years teaching.

People often as me “Is Zumba just a fad?”

Honestly, I don’t know…I have been doing it for a decade now and I am not bored and have no interest in quitting. I love it. It is passion. It is play. It is sweaty fun with an AMAZING community of people! I cannot imagine going back to anything else.

I think there are quite a few people out there, just like me, that a decade has passed and we are all wondering where the time went because it is just that AWESOME and easy to get hooked doing it!

Hope you come have some laughs, sweat and groove moves with us all soon! It is NEVER too late to start!

Much love,

Family Zumba Coming to Children’s Palace!

Are you a mom, dad or guardian who is interested in getting fit and having fun with your child?

Family Zumba is all about connecting the family to music, dance and fitness in a fun way!  Children love to participate in activities with their parents when they are young.  Let’s take advantage of this precious time in their lives and yours where you can create some memories that will last a lifetime!

Zumba is a latin based dance/cardio fitness program where we will teach you all the moves from salsa to cumbia to reggaetone to the mambo and everything in between.  The great news about Zumba is you cannot do it wrong! As long as you are moving your body, you are winning at this program!

Family Zumba offers everything that an adult Zumba class offers minus any of those moves that we are all aware are inappropriate for children to know about or do.  We will teach you and your child to dance and play games inside of music.  Laughter and love will be a direct outcome of your participation in this program.

Parents who participate in this program have talked about the ride/walk home after class being fun and quite talkative and children getting a good night’s sleep!  Parents also speak about feeling like they don’t have time to do their own work but when it is combined with their children, they get a great workout themselves too!


This program supports you as a parent in having a newfound relationship with your child.  The program supports your children with building confidence and self-expression.

This program offers a great workout for you all to keep fit and have fun at any age!

This program is available to all parents or guardians and children ages 5-9 years of age….ADULTS: YOU MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY YOUR CHILD EACH WEEK! 🙂
