it’s been more than 4 years since Zumba changed my life and outlook on health and wellness…

IMG_0137yeah.. it’s been more than 4 years now since i traveled to Belfast, UK from Donegal Town, Ireland in May 2010, to attend Donna Giffen’s Zumba Basic 1 training! and it’s been one hell of a ride!

from being the only licensed Zumba Instructor in Manila in January 2011 to more than 600 licensed instructors nationwide to date, thousands of people are now enjoying the benefits of Zumba Fitness and keeping fit because of the easy-to-follow program.. people of all walks of life and diversity are now benefiting from this fun and addicting fitness program!

i’ve been invited to several local TV shows promoting Zumba Fitness & other Zumba Specialty programs and have been invited to many events and launches throughout Manila and provinces.. and all of them to the delight and enjoyment of all the participants!

Zumba has also given more than 600 licensed instructors the chance to learn, earn and help others get fit and healthy! the face of Zumba has been changing through the 14 years of its creation! it has evolved into specialty programs that targets specific audience and expertice.. Zumba Gold (for older active adults), Zumba Kids, Zumba Toning (with Toning sticks or light weights), Aqua Zumba (Zumba Pool party), Zumba Sentao (core program with the chair!), Zumba Step (using that ‘old stepper’!).

i know i’ve been remiss in my postings but hopefully, my photos will show you the fun exciting ride i’ve been on this past two years, including another trip to the Zumba Instructors Convention in Orlando this August…

thank you to everyone who’s supported me, encouraged me (my kids & family!), attended my classes, and have been part of my learning experience all these years!

thank you to Zumba Fitness for changing my life….

Aqua Zumba.. The latest Zumba hit in Manila

Take Latin and International dance movements simplified to exercise and what do you have… Zumba Fitness!! Now take the same easy to follow movements and add water.. What do you have?? AQUA ZUMBA!!!
I’ve been quite busy the past two months promoting the latest Zumba Specialty program craze in Manila, tho I originally opened classes in October 2012. But being summer and everyone is dying to splash into the pool, it was quite timely to promote it again thru local TV shows, such as GMA7’s Sports Pilipinas, Pinoy MD, Balitanghali and ABS-CBN’s Salamat Dok!

Aqua Zumba attendees have been enjoying the full benefits of this amazing water exercise coz it actually cuts the time spent for aerobic endurance, flexibility & joint mobility and muscle strengthening, all in just one hour! The density, buoyancy & weight of the pool’s water acts as your resistance, yet as a buffer and protection from any injury during the workout! It’s TOTALLY AMAZING!!
I have four (4) Aqua Zumba classes around the city at the moment!
Rockwell Club (Makati City): Tuesdays: 2:30-3:30pm
Wednesdays: 9:00-10:00am
Fridays: 9:00-10:00am
Quality Life Discoveries Indoor Pool (Quezon City): Thursdays: 6:00-7:00pm

For more info & queries about Aqua Zumba, please call or text 0916-2990214
I still have my regular Zumba Fitness and Zumba Gold classes around the city too!

Hope t see you in one of my classes!

2012.. The year that passed… What a great one!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Where did the last two months of 2012 go? They went by so quickly that I wasn’t able to update my blog at all.. What with all the Zumba events, Christmas parties and my Sydney holiday travels!
To recap my last two months, I’ve uploaded some photos of the several events, classes & holiday parties with my various classes to journal my year end Zumba life!
I did the Balik Bukid event at Sta. Elena for the second time, where I shared center stage with some samba dancers. Then there was the Lyceum Nursing Dept day activity, where over a hundred Lyceum students attended and joined our Zumba exercise activity! And also in the photos are several of my students in different classes including a Pole exercise class with Ciara Sotto that I joined in Rockwell Club!
I apologize for being remiss in my updates.. But I do hope to get back on the saddle with more updates of class schedules and activities!
See you in one of my classes, everyone.. Take care!

Text of call me at 0916-2990214 for my Zumba class schedule & rates!
