Zumbatomic® training with Naomi Joy Mokoena


Glenda had a fantastic day in October with the equally fantastic Naomi Joy Mokoena learning all about the joys of Zumbatomic® - the Zumba® fitness formula for 4-12 year olds.

The programme is designed, as with all Zumba® fitness, to combine fun with exercise and great music. The music is child frirndly as are the moves - no hip thrusting and booty circles here! A slightly different approach within the class is used to ensure the children are able to really get to grips with the moves and learn a couple of routines well each session. all that mixed with some fun games is guaranteed to capture the interest and capitalise on the energy of youngsters.

Can't wait to get THAT party started!!

The Masala Bhangra Workout® is an exercise dance routine that modernises the high-energy folk dance of Bhangra by blending traditional Bhangra dance steps and the exhilaration of Bollywood moves.

This unique dance mixes cardiovascular with fun, and is suitable for participants of all ages and fitness levels.

We were introduced to the Masala Bhangra Workout® on Friday night 2nd September, when Sarina Jain held her masterclass.

The class was absolutely amazing, we experienced a completely new workout for both of us.

What can I say, we were immediately hooked!

Training was help on the Saturday 3rd September and Sunday 4th September. It was the most intense training we have evere been on, both physically and mentally, but was so worth it.

When we were handed our certificates by Sarina Jain we both know we had a very special workout experience to bring to you.
