What is Zumba?

Zumba Fitness is a Latin dance-inspired aerobics fitness program that is designed to give you a full body workout, often described as exercise in disguise.

Why choose a True Body Zumba class?

True Body Zumba Classes are all about the dance! If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t particularly like going to the gym for a workout, maybe gets bored with walking/jogging/running or finds themselves making excuses like ‘it’s too hot’ or ‘it’s too wet’, Zumba will change your idea of what it means to exercise. Each class covers a range of dance styles from across the globe with simple steps that anyone can learn within a few short weeks. It’s a high energy hour of movement that focuses on bringing the fun back into your workout. No more timing yourself on a treadmill or counting out your reps.

Time to enjoy your fitness.

Music!

We want you to leave your world behind and pride ourselves on choosing songs that inspire you to move. Party music from around the globe will leave you wanting more at the end of the hour.

Obligation free fitness. You don’t have to book your class or pay for a term. The loyalty cards have no expiration. You keep coming back because you just can’t get enough.

High Energy!

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS THINK?

If you're looking for 'exercise' that doesn't feel like 'exercise' then this is it. I was looking to get fitter and healthier a few years ago when I was having a few health problems and a friend put me on to Russell's Zumba class. I just loved it right from the start. Great music, great people, great atmosphere. #hookedforlife #bestexercise- Maria
I have been attending and loving Russell's classes for two years now. He is a constant source of motivation and joy. Great music, warm, accepting crowd. Resulting in a firmer, fitter body. More importantly...no matter how tired you are/or the levels of stress you have, I guarantee you leave feeling energised.- Kat
Russell always strives to keep his classes interesting and varied… educational too - I didn’t know what twerking was! Thanks for making me feel years younger Russell!- Paula

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST ZUMBA CLASS

1. When you first walk in...

You’ll meet your instructor or another smiling face. Let them know you’re new. You’ll get some great tips. Inside the hall you’ll find people of all shapes, sizes, ages and dance abilities. It’s a pretty social atmosphere. Don’t be afraid to say hi. To get the most out of the experience, come with the intention of having a good time and leave your inhibitions at the door with your entry fee.

2. Find your spot.

Everyone will have their usual place/spot that they dance in every class. Front and centre, you will have the die-hard fans. These are the people who know the routines well and bust out each move with confidence or are even creating their own interpretation of the routine. About ¾ of the way to the back of the room is where you will most likely find the other new people, and at the back are a mix of the more shy dancers and the people who like to let loose and want lots of space. Find a place for yourself where you feel comfortable and can see the instructor’s entire body.

3. Class Introduction

The instructor will explain their style of cueing (how they lead the steps) and go over some choreography of the more complex or more new steps. Then the music will start. It will probably be a song you recognise. The steps won’t be too complicated and the class will fill with energy. The rest of the class is made of other upbeat songs from a huge range of genres to give the party atmosphere. Find the people that seem to know what they are doing and you can follow them from behind as well as watching the instructor.

4. The class begins...

At first, it feels like you’re in a room filled with professional dancers and that everyone else knows all the moves. You might feel like you are all alone. Then you realize that everyone there was in your place once and they only know what they are doing because they have learned the routines after weeks/months or even years of Zumba addiction. Zumba structure works on different parts of the song so the steps you do coincide with the chorus or verse. The other clients who have been coming for months or years will probably know the song and be ready to change to the next move. Muscle memory. Don’t fret. If it seems a lot to take in, within a few weeks, you will be amazed at how you instinctively know all the changes. More importantly, it’s OK to mess up. So don’t even worry about what the instructor is doing and do your own thing. Let your personality out. Others will be.

5. Maximise your workout

To get the best workout from your Zumba class, focus on the moves that you do pick up, and do them like you were born to do them. The more arms and the more height change, the more of a workout you will get.

6. When it's over too soon

It will all be over in a flash. You’ll realize you have just danced salsa, merengue, cumbia, dancehall, reggaeton, among many other dance styles without a single dance lesson. Not to mention that you just had a great workout. Don’t worry if you didn’t get it all the first time. No one does.

7. When you come back for more

You’ll go home and for the next few days, you’ll be haunted by great songs and the itch to dance again. When you come back, most of the routines, if not all, will be exactly the same. Your muscle memory will kick in and everything falls into place a little bit easier. Before you know it, you might just be elbowing others out of the way to get to the front row.
