Summertime will soon be here!

Hi Guys just a quick February post to you all.

It seems like the year is already slipping away and we have bookings already for the regular events that take place in summer in Torbay, look out for us taking part in the Paignton Festival at the end of July plus we have lots of our class ladies helping us to bring a bit of joy to the parade as “Summertime” is our theme.

I work as fitness instructor at Torbay Leisure Centre as do many others, but I am the one doing Zumba and dancercise, lots of people tell me they can’t dance, have no coordination etc, well I don’t mind as long as you wish to join a class I will guide you through, and it will lift your spirits.

I also teach a Zumba gold at Hookhills Community Centre, this is a class for older active adults, this is a lovely friendly class we are there every Thursday morning 11-30 am—12-30 am .

Bye for now Paul

About the author

Paul and Helen Harrison

Just to put you all “in the picture” so to speak, the accompanying photo is of myself and my other half Helen, who has been with me through thick and thin in my career as a teacher of fitness and dance.

I qualified as a fitness teacher of Exercise to music back in 1990, with the Y M C A going on to teach fitness in many formats eg. Step /Aqua and Zumba.

Zumba took me back to my roots as a dancer. So this has been our passion as much as any other form of exercise, together we demonstrate our love of dance fitness at various charity events throughout the Bay during the year.

It gives us great pleasure to see the fun people have trying out new routines, and the most important thing we find is that no-one is embarrassed or age or shape conscious we all join together in the pleasure of it. Anyone who thinks it is not a serious contender in this age of hard hitting exercise classes should try it ! without giving too much away neither of us is under the age of 60 and still going strong.
