ZUMBA in BRISTOL
20th October update : INDOOR CLASSES STARTING TO OPEN!!
So, there will be a gradual re-opening of the classes, starting this week.
Many of the venues I was using are still closed and they will review the situation in January 2021.
Under current guidance, I need to allow 3m x 3m per person to move around in, and have ventilation in every class. For as long as these requirements are in place, it will not be financially viable for me to return to some halls.
The Park Centre is open, but the hall will only cater for 5 people plus myself so I won't be going back there for now
Hanham Community Centre is open but there are some restrictions still in place which means I will be running a limited number of classes from there.
Added to that, I have recently decided to undertake some training to gain a qualification to teach other fitness genres outside of Zumba and offer more varieties of classes to you all. That will take up quite a bit of time, so whilst some venues are closed, now is a good time to concentrate on this.
I am running a 9.30am class this Thurs (22nd Oct) from Hanham Community Centre, and stream it live to the virtual classes, so in effect, running 2 classes at the same time.
This has been tested with a small group of people, and it did work in the practice session, so Thursday will be the real test!! (A back up plan is in place for the virtual attendees)
W/C 26th October:
Tues @ 6pm - 7pm - Zumba Fitness at Hanham CC
Weds @ 6pm - 7pm - Zumba Fitness at Kingswood Community Centre
Thursday @ 9.30am - 10.30am - Zumba Fitness at Hanham CC
I will confirm additional classes next week by email.
As I am only able to have a maximum of 15 people per class, all classes must be pre-booked. Please confirm to me by email or text message.
Zumba Fitness classes are 1 hour and £5 (no concessions or loyalty cards).
Online classes are still running every morning @ 9.30am. Please contact me for more details x
Looking forward to seeing you soon!!!
Hopefully see you in person soon!
VIRTUAL CLASSES STILL TAKING PLACE and will remain in place until at least the Ne Year.
If you are interested in joining one of our online classes, you will need to contact me by email.
From there, you will be invited to classes via an email, which will have both a meeting id AND password for the classes due in the coming week.
Once you are on the email list, you will be contacted weekly to confirm the meeting codes/passwords for that week.
PLEASE make sure you check you are downloading the ZOOM app from https://zoom.us/
Hackers will create "lookalike" apps so only use the attached link.
Do invite friends and family to join in, but the preference is we have their name and email address before the class. If not, I do need to have at least their name - if we are not expecting them to join in, they may not be allowed entry to the class.
We have taken these steps to make the classes as secure as possible from others out to cause a bit of mischief!!
This a temp website for now.
Problems with an old PC meant I couldn't gain access to the website to update it.
ONLINE CLASSES NOW RUNNING EVERY DAY - Monday to Friday

Zumba fitness classes for everyone!!
All ages, ladies and gents, high impact, low impact, seated classes, limited mobility.
Come and join in the fun!!!
Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, all classes are currently taking place online
Online classes - using ZOOM
As Fitness Instructors, myself and many friends have found ourselves out of work for the foreseeable future.
Zumba has previously prohibited us from livestreaming classes as it was a violation of our Zumba licence. However, in an attempt to have a way to continue earning, they have removed this restriction.
We have now been running the classes online for over several weeks now and the reaction has been awesome.
Being able to "see" you has been great, and for you to "see" faces you know has also been a real bonus. Many people are struggling with travel restrictions at this really difficult time and missing contact with family and friends, so to do some Zumba each day is really helping them out.
People are also asking me how to make payment for the classes.
Classes will be £3.50 per class or unlimited access to all classes during the week for £10!!!
For now, you can make payments direct to my business account :
Santander, Zumba in Bristol, 090127 90563366 (your name as reference)
Also, let me know your email address so that I can send you a waiver form for insurance
purposes and send you the login details for the classes.
(If you can't pay direct to here, let me know - there are other options!)
HOWEVER (if you have previously attended one of my classes, this is really important)
a) If you too are out of work, I still want you to take a class
b) If you want to do classes all week but struggle with the £10, I still want you to take the classes
Just email me to let me know. We're all in this together!!! I know the positive benefits you will receive by being able to participate.
Please spread the word to your friends, family and neighbours - share the Zumba love!! xx
Details below for how to take part : if you get stuck, don't give up!! Do let me know and myself or someone else will call you and get you sorted - it's really straighforward once you've done the first one xx
You can attend a class using your phone, tablet or laptop.
