It is exciting to work with my daughter while we teach a fun fitness program that raises your heart-rate and burn a few calories, too.
May’s Girl’s Night Out at Fifi’s Fine Resale on 8th Street in Fernandina Beach will be held this Thursday, May 9th, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, and Ally and I will be demonstrating a variety of Zumba routines, just in time for Mother’s Day.
As a “Mom” it is pretty exciting to work with my youngest daughter while we team-teach a fun fitness program that raises your heart-rate and burns a few calories, too.
Zumba Fitness is not your typical, aerobics-style counting of music, instead the music and chorography are international inspired by authentic beats and dance movements from around the world including salsa, cumbia, belly dance and more. Typically, we turn the lights down low and turn the music up to create a party atmosphere when we teach at CLUB 14 FITNESS. You do not need a dance background to attend; this class is designed to move your body and have some fun!
Zumba Gold follows the original Zumba concept and falls under the category of endurance training. Designed to keep the heart healthy and the circulatory system strong, Zumba Gold is approachable by all populations including those returning from injuries, the active older adult and unconditioned beginners. We like to call it Zumba Light because we have removed any steps that include sudden or sharp twisting of the knee or back, as well any jumping movements. While you still experience the exciting choreography of any of the Zumba Fitness programs, you will improve your balance and flexibility, and strengthen your heart, too. Among others, you’ll enjoy music and rhythms including Merengue, Cha-Cha, and some Rock and Roll!
Zumba Core is a new discipline that focuses on choreographed, core conditioning routines. Zumba Core is not a class, it is a module Zumba instructors may choose to add to their licensing by continuing their Zumba Fitness Instructor trainings.
We traveled to Atlanta in July of 2011 to become licensed Zumba instructors after becoming addicted to the program taught by local Zumba Queen Jackie Norton. At the time, Ally was the youngest licensed instructor in NE Florida. In 2012, we earned our “Gold” license and I recently completed the new “Core” discipline.
Ally is my third child to graduate Fernandina Beach High School. She will graduate with the Class of 2013, and as of May 3rd she is one of 14 students who are now Certified Nursing Assistants, a program taught this year at FBHS and instructed by Teacher of the Year Mrs. Sharon Belcher.
Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and sneakers to Girl’s Night Out at Fifi’s. The event is free, but an RSVP is requested by Tuesday night to (904) 277-4430, so we can prepare plenty of refreshments!
We teach Zumba Fitness classes at CLUB 14 FITNESS, currently on Tuesdays evenings, from 6:40 to 7:40 PM.
