Last Friday, Jenna and I were lucky enough to be able to complete our STRONG by Zumba Instructor training. If you remember we had planned to do this training a couple of weeks earlier in Auckland, however because of the COVID-19 crisis, this training was cancelled, with no indication of when another session would be made available. We had resigned to the fact that we would not be able to complete the training until the COVID-19 crisis had passed when we got an email from Jarrod Tucker, the STRONG by Zumba Master Trainer in Australia. He was planning to conduct his first-ever online STRONG by Zumba Instructor training, and we jumped at the opportunity to participate.
Jenna and I are lucky enough to be still working full-time during New Zealand's nationwide lockdown, but we were able to take the day off work and complete the training with Jarrod and six others all via ZOOM which worked well. Jarrod is a fantastic instructor, and by the end of the day both Jenna and I were wreaked but grateful we'd been given the opportunity to complete our STRONG by Zumba training.
So now we're certified, we can start delivering STRONG by Zumba classes. Initially online, but as soon as the lockdown is over and the Ministry of Health as deemed it safe enough, we'll be back in front of our members, delivering face to face classes again.
We intend to start offering Free online classes in the next couple of weeks, before the end of April. STRONG 30 will be our first online class, as the name implies, it will only be 30 minutes. However, we're going to pack into that 30 minutes a fantastic workout that will have you sweating like never before. Later, we'll add full 55-minute classes which are going to push you even more.
If you want to know when these online classes are going to be available, then please sign up to our mailing list. We are super excited that we can offer these classes and hope that everyone can come and join us online. Take care and stay safe.
