Zumba is a growing trend among those looking to get fit with flair. It combines high-energy music with cardio-boosting dance moves that make it fall into the “fun” category more than the “workout” category.  Zumba increases flexibility, coordination and is easily modified for all levels of fitness, which makes it appealing to young and old alike. The best thing about Zumba? Anyone can do it. Just ask JoAnne Fluke. 

JoAnne moved to Beaumont eight months ago because she saw a need: a need for exercise outlets for the disabled community. As a council member for the Rehabilitation Council for Texas, a certified Zumba instructor, and someone who has a knack for improving the lives of those around her, she decided to give Beaumont a try. Her reason for getting involved with teaching Zumba? She was asked to teach an adapted class to increase involvement among those with disabilities. JoAnne teamed up with her partner, Preston, who teaches the able-bodied version of the work-out. The pair has the capability of teaching an able-bodied and adapted version at the same time. JoAnne and Preston offer classes to corporations, schools and community organizations and have successfully brought together the disabled and able-bodied communities in a shared love of Zumba. 

Is your organization interested in partnering with JoAnne and Preston? Classes are 45 minutes and can be taught in an adapted version, able-bodied or a combination of the two. The base instruction fee is $35 per hour plus $5 per student. To add an able-bodied instructor there would be an additional $35 fee. Zumba (inclusive) is great for schools, wellness centers, rehabilitation centers and general socialization. For additional information, call JoAnne Fluke at (785) 248-3023.
