Class Descriptions

Zumba Gold– Our signature class- energizing, easy to follow- with incredible music! Zumba Gold is perfect online, because it’s slightly slower pace is helpful for our home set-up. We get a strong cardiovascular workout- and also gain muscle strength and improve balance. So much fun!


Zumba Gold Toning– This is our only equipment class- but do not worry- you can also use your own weights- or- simply use your own resistance. Be ready to have a blast, tone up, and finish feeling exhilarated and empowered! We also do this AMAZING class SEATED!


Zumba Gold Seated-   Great for beginners, or those who may be working with limitations, or a recent injury. We are seated, but keep the party going! You will be amazed at the great workout you can get seated!
