I started Zumba in August 2010. After being emotionally stifled for 19 years, Zumba has liberated my mind, body and soul! I have reconnected with my self, lost weight, met some amazing people and found my mojo! Zumba is more than a fitness class… it’s a way of life.Sandra
I started Zumba at Amherst with Danza Loca in early Feb 2010 (i think?!) and since then have lost about 25kgs :) now i do it so much cos i love it soo much and im sooo addicted that my body is used to it and doesnt wanna loose the last 7kgs to reach my goal weight!… These new routines are the BOMB though so hopefully its the kick start my body needs to get back on the weightloss trainKatrina
Thank you Simon Fryda and Laetitia Fryda for your help, our dance performance was very successful. We were the opening act and the feedback was that we set the energy for the night, and was an amazing performance…Josephine

I struggled for a while to lose any weight and even though its was only 7kg’s it was huge to me! since then I have maintained my weight, toned my body and enjoyed every class I go to. LUV Zumba!!Sara
