Zumba® Northern Beaches
Zumba classes are an exciting fusion of dance, fitness and toning routines to great music. Zumba improves cardio-vascular fitness, co-ordination and strength, and is an excellent fat burning workout.
The Zumba® program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will blow you away. The aim is simple: to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked. Zumba® Fanatics achieve long-term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exciting hour of calorie-burning, body-energizing, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life!
The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. Add some Latin flavor and international zest into the mix and you’ve got a Zumba® class!
Annebé’s background in Dance Fitness and Pilates have inspired her to create safe, fun and varied Zumba Fitness® classes using fantastic music and great moves that are suitable for everyone!
Monday morning Zumba class is always hard to get motivated after the weekend but it is definitely worth it as I have lots of energy afterwards. Also I feel very positive as the class is full of laughs. The music is lively and a great way to start the week
I have been attending Annebé’s Zumba class since its inception. I was worried that for someone who can’t dance to save myself I would be way out of my comfort zone. I was also worried that my ageing body parts would be sorely tested (excuse the pun!) Nothing could be further from the truth… The choreography caters to all levels of fitness and coordination.
I can’t wait for my class first thing Monday morning to put a smile on my face as well as a healthy, sweaty sheen! The music is fantastic, the atmosphere is great, and everyone, young and old, has a ball
Lovely teacher, Great Music, Good Company, Fantastic Views, Good Workout… ZUMBA!!
I have been attending Annebé’s classes for several years. The thing that impressed me most from the outset was the friendly and relaxed atmosphere brought about by her nature and character and the continuity of having the same instructor for all classes.
Annebé conducts classes in a range of areas including Pilates, aerobics and Zumba, suitable for both sexes, all ages and for members from beginners to experienced. She pays particular attention to members with body restrictions, injuries, pregnancy, co-ordination deficiencies etc, and provides alternatives and solutions for exercises where needed.
In addition to detailed instructions and demonstrations she discusses the reason for exercises and outcomes generated in an easy manner to follow. There seems to be a view that Pilates classes are mainly for women, however, in addition to me there are quite a few other males who regularly attend Annebé’s classes with outstanding results. I thoroughly enjoy every session I attend and have noticed improvements to my body in the above areas and particularly in my feeling of well being. I unreservedly recommend Northern Beaches Pilates for anyone interested in improving their body shape and lifestyle!
I have been attending Annebé’s Zumba classes at Narrabeen Surf Club since the beginning of the year and have found them to be lots of fun. The atmosphere is relaxed and non-competitive and the exercises can be tailored to individual fitness levels, which is really helpful. Annebé gives us valuable information along the way about which muscles we are targeting with particular exercises and tips that ensure we are using the correct techniques.
She emphasises minimising damage to our joints while providing plenty of variety and a workout that really gets your heart pumping! I have definitely noticed an improvement in my overall fitness and stamina since joining the classes and have found them to be both rewarding and stimulating.
I’ve been coming to Pilates for some time and have gradually become stronger and more flexible. However after a complete knee reconstruction last November I found the classes a valuable part of my recovery. I started again shortly after surgery with some guided adjustments and continued throughout rehabilitation which also included Zumba.
Zumba is a great work out which helps my stamina for dancing! Annebé is amazing with all her movements that are fun and energetic! I love the music!
What a perfect way to start the week. Monday morning overlooking Narrabeen beach – fresh air, sparkling sea, on occasion whales and dolphins – and then Annebé starts that great Latin American music. The best Zumba class that I could imagine. Annebé is always enthusiastic and innovative catering for all levels of fitness and rhythm (or lack of it!). For me, well worth the drive from North Ryde!
I love the Zumba class…it’s not only good for the body but, psychologically, it provides a great uplift and kick start to the week! I like the combination of Zumba dance moves, aerobics and weights. It feels like a total body workout and gets me sweating in the space of one hour.
