Hi, I'm Joanna Lopez and I love teaching Zumba classes. The reason is simple: You're working out and you don't even know it. Come join me and you'll see what I mean!
My classes are 50 minutes long and they are live on Mondays at 9:15am EST (Toronto) and Fridays at 9:30am EST (Toronto). I post them on this website the day before the class. Note: I do not run the classes on a Canadian holiday so if you buy an 8 class pack I will extend it to make sure you get your 8 classes in a row.
Zumba is a fun latin-inspired total body workout that mixes in dance moves and effective interval-style exercises. You don't even have to know how to dance or be coordinated. Just move to your own rhythm.
Strengthen your heart, burn calories and tone your body at the same time!
An American Council on Exercise(ACE) study found Zumba to be an effective interval-style, full-body workout for all fitness levels! For more info on this study go to the following link:
Some other facts about me:
I grew up in Venezuela so the latin flavour is in my blood.
I have been in Canada most of my life(my mom is Canadian and my dad Venezuelan) and LOVE living in the best country in the world.
I go crazy for rainbows, fireworks, kittens, puppies, hanging out with my 2 kids, getaways with my husband, Cirque du Soleil and chocolate chip cookies.
My kids, Evan and Isabel, keep reminding me about the importance of love, patience, respect and kindness.
