“In the words of my Zumba mentor, Mia, "Dance like no one is watching!"”
My name is Rosy and I have never liked to exercise. My Honey Bunch saw an ad for Zumba and told me he thought I would like it. In November of 2008, I decided to give it a shot. I loved it so much I ended up taking 9 to 11 classes a week!
After two years of taking classes and dropping 35 pounds, I decided to become an instructor and spread the joy. I got Zumbafied (licensed in Zumba)! I think I'll buy my Honey Bunch a truck with my Zumba dollars!
Zumba is not about learning routines or steps perfectly. We are simply burning calories, clearing our minds, strengthening our bodies and having FUN doing it! I keep my routines simple and safe (Keep It Simple & Safe) but fun! We maximize calorie burn by contracting muscles, using strong, and controlled movements. Just because it's low impact doesn't mean we aren't working! I burn over 600 calories in one hour of Zumba Gold.
No matter your age or your ability, I hope to encourage you to do what you can, while enjoying beautiful music, freeing your mind and in the words of my Zumba mentor, Mia Said, dance like nobody's watching!
