About Me

Hello - I'm Maz.  I grew up dancing and I love Zumba.  I've worked as a dancer and choreographer.  In the four years or so that I've been teaching Zumba, my fitness level and body shape have improved dramatically - so I know from personal experience that It Works!

My classes are great fun (I hope!) with a relaxed atmosphere - but bring a towel, because you WILL get sweaty!

In my Zumba Fitness class, you will find great music and rhythms, clear instructions and a great workout.  I will help you to focus on different muscle groups so you can tone up specific areas, as well as getting a proper cardio workout.  My Core certification is an indicator that I will be helping you to focus, particularly, on that core area.  This will give you the opportunity to build up your own internal "corset" of muscles, toning you through the torso and helping to support your spine and upper body, helping to reduce the risk of back pain in your day-to-day life.  I'm now Glute certified, too, so don't think your bum will get left out!

I trained and am licensed to teach Zumba Gold - for the less active participant.  Unfortunately, or rather fortunately, all of my participants got so fit they graduated to regular Zumba!  However, this training means that I am able to give lower impact alternatives and modifications.  Please don't hesitate to have a chat with me before class if you would like this, whether due to restarting exercise after injury or simply after a period of not exercising regularly. 

Zumba Sentao is a high octane fitness class, brilliant for toning the midriff, bums and tums, not to mention the topline - that is the arms and shoulders.  Yes, and legs.  So the whole body, really!  We use a chair as a bench, as a dance partner and, occasionally, even as a chair!  We are still the only Sentao class for miles around - come and give it a go!

In both classes, of course, you get out what you put in.  I'm very happy for you to come along for a wiggle and a giggle, just to enjoy the experience.  But, equally, if you want to work harder and really make a difference to the way you look (while still wiggling and giggling, of course), I aim to give you the tools to do so in my classes.

Everybody is welcome in either class, so no matter what your level of fitness, or how coordinated (or otherwise!) you feel you are, please come along and give it a go - I'd love to see you.  The only way is up!
