Hello! I'm Amy Tunnell, and I have been teaching Zumba since 2008. I have a dance background in West African dance and Salsa/Bachata partner dancing. In my years of teaching experience I have learned how to cater to everyone's needs in the room, beginner and experienced. I came from dance performance background, but learned quickly that teaching Zumba is not a performance, but requires skills to break down movements that are easy to follow. The goal in the room is to have fun and sweat!
I teach Zumba not at a gym, but in a community atmosphere that I created in 2010, when I started my own Fitness business called Denver West Burbs Fitness and Dance. Through a lot of hard work and moving from venue to venue, I finally was able to move my classes into two beautiful locations in West Denver and Wheat Ridge. My dedicated students have followed me through all of this and I invite you to come dance with us! I also hold large fitness events on a regular basis which bring up to 120 people per event, with multiple instructors form all over the metro area.

In addition to my Zumba Fitness licensing, I am also a certified Pilates instructor (Reformer and Mat based) and a Pound Fitness Instructor. Mat Pilates and Pound Fitness are also offered at Denver West Burbs Fitness and Dance. All inclusive Punch Cards and monthly memberships are available, with 8 classes per week offered. You can also contact me about private Reformer based Pilates sessions we can schedule at your convenience in the Lakewood area.
I am also available to teach any of these formats at corporate events, office lunchtime or morning classes, or I can host a party for you or your child at one of my studio locations or at your home! I have hosted several private Fitness Parties for both adults and children! I also host flash mobs and fundraisers. Please contact me for any Special events you would like me to be a part of and help bring fitness into the lives of others! My favorite part about teaching fitness as my full time endeavor is that I have been able to inspire others and make them feel better both inside and out!
Come join me, I guarantee you will have a blast! If you have questions, don't hesitate to drop me a message!
