Zumba ® Gold Fitness classes can be done in a chair or standing, or a mix of the two, however I prefer to teach separate standing and sitting Gold classes as the warm up, cool downs and moves are so different. In March 2014 we brought all three classes together for a special Zumbathon but we had 7 instructors to make it run smoothly - when it's me by myself I think you get the most from one style of class at a time!
Zumba Gold chair class is suitable for people who have mobility or balance problems or who might just want to start in a chair or when space is tight!
Please don't confuse it with the very high impact Zumba Sentao which is where the chair is used to maximise your workout at the other end of the scale! (I don't teach this yet!)
My classes are usually half an hour as I find this is enough for most people and gives us time to talk through any problems (and just catch up!) at the beginning and end of class.
1pm - 1:45pm Wimbledon Park Hall Zumba ® Gold chair class. Spaces available. £3
11:30am - 12:00am Acacia Intergenerational Centre Zumba ® Gold chair class. Spaces available. £2
Please contact me for details of new or monthly classes - I am working on around 2 -3 new/monthly classes at the moment.
The great music and atmosphere – it’s all about having fun with your friends (whether you bring them with you or make them here!)
The workout - people (especially super fit instructors) are always surprised to find out just how much we can do in a chair class! But it's a great way to start as you can also take a break when you need to (you already have your chair).
