Grace is a local mother and a regular at our Zumba classes.
Why did you decide to join this activity?
I try to stay active in my daily routine. But after motherhood, this became more difficult and I always craved some personal time to rejuvenate. So I thought to myself, what better way than dancing off those extra calories through Zumba beats, I’ll give it a try!
What do you enjoy about it?
The best part of Zumba is our trainer Fiona. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious! I also really enjoy the variety of the class – in the dance moves, the use of dumb bells, and there’s even belly dancing too!
What difference has it made for you?
A lot! My body appears more toned. My movements are more flexible. Zumba has boosted my overall confidence. I always look forward for Tuesdays and hardly ever miss Fiona’s class.
What would you say to others considering this activity?
Thanks to modern technology, we spend too much time our time on gadgets and it’s really important to take time out and ditch our sedentary lifestyles. Zumba will really help you do this. So I’d encourage you to come along. You’ll definitely feel more energetic and beautiful inside and out!
