Zumba with Nicole at El Studio in La Penita de Jaltembe


 Nicole teaches an excellent Zumba class at El Studio in La Penita and the music is great. I especially appreciated the tile floor in El Studio. After doing Zumba on concrete basketball courts in many Mexican towns, the smooth surface of this dance floor was a real treat. I also liked that Nicole led us in some floor exercises for toning and stretching near the end of class. The day after my first class with her, I felt some muscles that hadn't been exercised in a while! I really enjoyed Zumba with Nicole and look forward to going again!

Nicole gives several classes daily, Monday through Friday. During the month of November, 6:00 AM classes are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 7:00 AM classes are Monday and Friday. 8:00 AM classes are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. She also has Zumba classes Monday through Friday at 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM. No wonder she's in such great shape! The schedule changes in December, so check for updates at or stop by
El Studio on the main Avenida in La Penita. You can also check for information on the Jaltemba Jalapeno Forum at 

Nicole's morning class was made up of about half North American's and half Mexican Nationals. It was a bonus for me that she speaks both English and Spanish. The cost is 15 pesos (about $1.20 US) per class. I first discovered Nicole's Zumba expertise by viewing her YouTube video, Zumba Balada Boa (Che che) . You can check it out at .
