Hello! I'm Teresa Tansell, and I live near Mandurah, WA. I've been a ZIN™ Member since Jan 2010 and I absolutely love teaching Zumba classes.
My background is is ballroom and latin american dance so this has quite a big influence on my class style but I like to mix up the music and have as much variety as possible.
For me the best fitness program is one you can stick to and my focus is on having fun so you WANT to come to class. Fitness doesn't need to be a chore! And I don't believe that you have to work crazy hard to benefit from exercising....
My experience is that Zumba is as much benefit for your mental health and overall well being as it is for fitness. I promote a friendly and welcoming environment where you can feel part of something and not intimidated or judged, no matter what age, size or fitness level you may be.
Come along and give us try. I promise we don't bite!
