“When i first went to a zumba class in February i wasn’t sure what i was going to or whether i would like it. I can gladly say i was hooked! I love the music and the dances. It has helped me on my way to losing 6 and a half stone so far and to tone up as well. Thank you Jodie for being a great instructor, I look forward to monday and friday evenings!!”

“I love Zumba because no other exercise makes me laugh and smile through the whole hour! The atmosphere is fun and friendly and not only are you getting a great work out, but it’s also a really social way to spend your evening! Jodie is a fantastic instructor and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her classes.”
Claire Prewett
“I tried 2 other classes before Jodie’s & hers us by far the best, because of her energy & enthusiasm. I want to lose a bit of weight & get fit & zumba makes it fun not a chore. x”
Samantha Nelmes
“I started Zumba to try and lose some weight and get a little fitter. I used to teach Salsa so it was the perfect way to exercise for me. I tried a few local classes but then came across Jodie’s class and never looked back. She is the *perfect* Zumba teacher. None of the others I have been to hold a torch to her. She has a wonderful way of putting everyone at their ease, her classes are by far the most fun but not lacking on calorie burning in any way. If you want to burn some calories, get fitter and have fun all into the bargain go to any one of Jodie’s lessons and she will make you feel very welcome.”
Elizabeth Heathcote
“Was talked into trying zumba and really did not think it would be my thing but was so wrong! Was completely hooked from the first class and was lovely to see an instructor who puts so much energy and enthusiasm into every minute of every class. Thank you Jodie for making everyone feel so welcome, and I always feel better getting out of bed when it’s a zumba day!! xx”

“Exercising shouldn’t be this effective with this much fun – it feels like I’m cheating! After only 6 months, I feel fitter, am more toned, and have lost weight to boot! Jodie strikes the perfect balance between professionalism and being friendly and approachable, and the regular introduction of new music and routines, along with revisits to old favourites, keeps the classes from going ‘stale’. Love it, love it, love it!”
Sara White
“Jodie’s Zumba classes are the best, I had been to a number of different classes before finding Jodie’s and they do nothing in comparison. Jodie always makes the classes fun and has loads of good music on. Definitely more like a party than a fitness class… keep up the good work Jodie, I love your classes and will be back in the New Year!”

“I lost weight but still didn’t feel happy or confident with myself, I had seen adverts for Zumba and finally bit the bullet and went along, since then I have never looked back! Thanks to jodie and her classes, I have finally restored some confidence and continued to loose weight! Never did I see myself getting up on stage in front of classes full of strangers nor did I ever think that I could manage to do as many as 7 classes a week! The energy, the vibes,the atmosphere, the moves, EVERYTHING about Zumba is amazing and am grateful to Jodie for starting this here in Yate!!! ur one in a million Thank u xxxxx”
