Hello! I'm Amy Jeschke, and I teach Zumba and Zumba® Toning in Danville and San Ramon, CA. I've been a ZIN™ Member since Nov 2012 and I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: every class feels like a party!
Zumba has had an incredibly positive impact my life. Like so many new moms, I struggled with finding ways to get rid of the leftover baby weight that I was carrying. I took my first Zumba class in April 2012, and it changed my life forever. Through Zumba and clean eating, I lost 40lbs and gained the confidence to take me from "hiding" in the back of the class to leading my own classes.
I taught Zumba through the entire pregnancy with my second child – proof that anyone, regardless of body type, can benefit greatly from the combined cardio, resistance training and heart-pumping rhythms that Zumba provides.
In January of this 2018, I suffered a stroke. The outpouring of encouragement and support I received from my community of Zumba students, and the positive energy I feel when I am doing what I love has propelled through the recovery process. I am proud to say I am almost fully recovered back to doing what I love: teaching Zumba!
As an instructor, I want to be able to give my students a boost of confidence to help them achieve their fitness goals. In my classes, you'll get exposed to new music with dance choreography that is accessible to beginners and seasoned Zumba fanatics, alike. I have students of all ages and athletic abilities. My students are not just people who come to class from week to week, they are my friends, my support group and my inspiration. Come join me for a class and enjoy the music, meet some great people, and get your groove on! Got questions, don't hesitate to drop me a message!
