| Zumba Kim's Story:
Zumba is my passion! I stumbled into a class by accident in August of 2006. I had never really
participated in group x classes. In my exercise routine I stuck to the treadmill, the bike, and the
elliptical. What was I thinking? I can't imagine ever doing that again!
I just happened to see my neighbor in the Zumba class and she was looking fantastic! I went in to say
hello and was talked into staying. The class was amazing, the music, the energy, & the hour flew by so
quick! I was hooked! I never stepped foot on a treadmill, bike or elliptical again.
Soon the pounds were coming off, my sizes were going down, and I was feeling great, my energy was
so high. I had never seen results like this before. I am currently down 40 pounds with a combo of
Zumba and making healthy choices!
In February 2007 I took the Zumba Workshop training and began teaching 1 week later. I taught at
Hilltop Gym for 1 year before it closed it's doors in February 2008.
In June 2007 I premiered the first ever Zumba classes at California Family Fitness in Elk Grove. The
format was new to this gym and it took off quickly! Soon more instructors were being added as classes
grew. Zumba trainings were going on at other CFF's to get all 15 of their gyms added with Zumba
In April 2008 I also premiered the first Zumba classes at Gold's Gym in Elk Grove as well. The
members were also Zumba-holics and the classes were always a blast. I gave up this class in Feb.
2009. I miss the students. But, with my classes going well at my studio, I needed to cut some classes
and focus my energy on the studio and making these classes my top priority.
So as for the studio, In September in 2008 I decided to offer "drop in" classes at Makamae Studio of
Dance. I wanted to offer Zumba on a drop in basis and i thought $5 sounded pretty reasonable. So I
randomly came up with my $5 drop in pricing and 10 class punch card offer, (yep, only $5!!) & 10
classes for $45. I grew exponentially at the studio and have found that word of mouth advertising is the
greatest! I thank all of you who have supported me throughout the years & now support my other
instructors, It is because you spread the word about the classes at the studio that we can make these
classes happen!! THANK YOU!
So in 2010....Because the class sizes were growing so big, I needed a larger space so I relocated my
Studio classes to a new suite number. I was at that location for 8 months and decided to make a move
to a retail location. As of June 1, 2010 Zumba with Kim is now known as Fusion Fitness & Dance and
is now located at 9660 Elk Grove Florin Road Suite E, right next door to Skip's Music. Our studio is
fabulous, with nearly 4,500 square feet of space, central heat and two air conditioners to keep us cool
in the summer heat. This location is the best yet & is twice the size of our old location. And our dance
floor is HUGE ,as we just expanded it. The Studio is centrally located in the heart of Elk Grove & is on
a main street so it is easy to find! We are proud to say were nominated in the Best of Elk Grove
Contest for 2010 and just won "Best Dance Studio" & also came in second place for "Best Group
Fitness". We look forward to having you at our studio soon!
Since my initial Zumba workshop training in 2007 I have been to
8 more Zumba trainings/certifications over the past 4 years of teaching as well as the first Annual
Zumba Convention in Orlando Florida in 2008. These trainings include Zumba Gold, Zumba Basic 2,
Zumba Toning, and ZumbAtomic for kids. I am excited that at the studio I have been able to host some
amazing Zumba Master Classes with talented Zumba Instructors from all over, Including Gina Grant
from Zumba Fitness, Fabio Barros from Miami, and Nathan Blake from New York, & the list goes on.
Plus, we have been able to host Zumba Instructor trainings at our facility.
I have been having a great time these past 4-1/2 years. I love the energy my classes bring to me and
the feeling I get teaching is just amazing. I feel connected to each of my participants and look forward
to each class I teach. I can't imagine my life without Zumba! Be sure to check the current class
schedule. I hope to see you shimmying at a class soon!
|What is Zumba?
Zumba is a fusion of Latin and international music;
dance themes that create a total body workout. Aerobic
interval training with a combination of fast and slow
rhythms that tone and sculpt the body.
You'll work your glutes, legs, abdominals, arms, and
most importantly your heart!
