So, we are moving to El Club (See Address, Map, and Photo below). I will be teaching Zumba on Mondays from 10:30AM to 11:30AM. The fee is 50 pesos. (Debora Pulver teaches there on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:30AM and I recommend her classes as well.)

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

Exercise in Disguise!

     I have written this 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 fun 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.
     In September I decided to take the Zumba Instructor Basic Training and received by Official Zumba Instructor Certificate! The class was grueling, and that was just the beginning. Now I am working hard to perfect my music playlist and choreography. Soon I will be teaching Zumba in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico!
I Am Proud to Have Earned My Certificate

Check Out My Class Schedule at TerryTurrell.Zumba.comm    

     You will now find my class schedule on when you seach for Instructors or classes in Sayulita.  I am excited to be part of the ZIN Network, working hard to improve my Zumba knowledge and skill. 
     This is probably my last post on the Zumba Mexico blog. But you can continue to follow me on my other two blogs:

BeFIT FITNESS CENTERS IN MAZATLÁN: Zumba, CrossFit, TRX, Spinning, Yoga, and More!

BeFiT in Mazatlán

Look for the "BeFiT Fitness Center" Banner
     There are so many ways to stay physically fit in Mazatlán. When our usual Zumba class in the park with Penny Fuller (see blog post by clicking at: Zumba with Penny in the Morning )was finished for the season and we weren't ready to leave Mazatlán, I started searching for another way to work out. One day, as we were riding the bus from the Golden Zone toward Punta Cerritos RV Park, I saw this large "BeFiT Fitness Center" banner hanging above a building at the curve where Avenida Camarón Sábalo turns into the Marina area.

Children Zumba, Too!

Zumba...Ditch the Workout, Join the Party!

     Zumba is an excellent way to introduce children to excercise. The kids in this video are working out and they don't even realize it! They are just having fun! That is one thing that's great about many Zumba classes in Mexico--the kids join in when they want to, and they often WANT to because it is all about dance. Mexicans enjoy dance and music from the day they are born as part of their culture so it feels natural and fun. Zumba is an extension of dance, therefore a fun way to exercise. That's "Healthy Living!" No wonder the Zumba theme is "Ditch the Workout, Join the Party!"

Healthy Living and Traveling in Mexico: SAYULITA: ZUMBA WITH MICKI CUNNINGHAM



It's true, I love to eat delicious food, especially pizza! We have fallen into a pattern of eating pizza at least once a week while living in Sayulita, Mexico, so I knew I had to find a way to burn those calories. It became clear that after months of searching for the best pizza in town and daily lounging on the beach, I soon would not be able to fit through the door of our motorhome if I didn't start getting more exercise. I don't like to run, I am a lazy paddleboarder, and working out in a gym is soooo boring. That's when I discovered Zumba with Micki in Sayulita! It's fun, it's lively, and it burns 600 to 1000 calories per hour!
