After Years of Fun Zumba Classes, I'm Going to Be a Zumba Instructor!

Now that I'm Retired, I Have Time to Teach Zumba!
I have written my "Zumba Mexico!" blog since January 2014, almost three years! I can hardly believe it! That's when I fell in love with Zumba as "Exercise in Disguise" and came up with the wild idea of traveling around Mexico in our motorhome, attending Zumba classes in each town we visited. My husband, Jon, being the good sport that he is, agreed to this crazy, fun adventure. 
We met so many great people throughout Mexico, including Zumba Instructors and other Zumba students, as enthusiastic about Zumba as I am. I learned many fun Latin dances, even managing to get my hips to move. That's a real challenge for a gringa!

I continued to attend Zumba classes at the YMCA when we were back in the United States and even helped start a Zumba Gold class at Mountain Meadows Retirement Community in Ashland, Oregon. It was so great to get the seniors moving in a new way and having fun. I knew Zumba would always be my preferred fitness class. But I never thought I would become a Zumba Instructor. I was inspired and motivated by some of my Instructors who are older than I am and still teaching Zumba. I realize now that you are never too old to do Zumba, and never to old to teach it! Now that I'm retired, I have time to teach and attend other Instructor's Zumba classes, as well!
I am Proud to Have Earned by License at the Age of 60!
In September I decided to take the Zumba Instructor Basic Training and received by Official Zumba Instructor License! The class was grueling, and that was just the beginning. I have been working hard to perfect my music playlist and choreography. Next week I will begin teaching Zumba in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico!

You will now find my class schedule and information on when you search for Instructors or classes in Sayulita.  My Zumba website is I am excited to be part of the ZIN Network, working hard to improve my Zumba knowledge and skill.

  2. Your an inspiration! I just got my B1 Zumba license just shy of my 59th birthday. I're never too old to do or teach Zumba!

    1. Elizabeth,

  3. Terry, I read your new newsletter and as always enjoyed it very much. Keep up the good work. MOM

    1. Thanks, Mom. I'm really happy with our new Zumba location, El Club Fitness Center. The hardwood floors are easy to move on and the mirror at the front of the class helps everyone see how they look while they do Zumba. We also like the 10:30 AM time--we don't have to get up so early! Thanks for reading my newsletter and for your nice comment.
