New! Zumba Classes at the Community Centre

Elements residents are privileged to have so many on-site health and well-being activities. These include yoga, tai chi and aqua aerobics.

This month, for the first time, a trial Zumba class took place in the community centre. This trial session was hosted by Gay and Jaquie from ‘Switch It On Fitness’. Gay is also an Elements resident. Zumba is a relatively high energy workout so we weren’t sure how our residents would adapt (hence the trial).   We should have known better. Our residents were able to keep up with both the new routine and the tempo; and even though the participants had been told beforehand to take a time-out when necessary, no-one did.

Residents were encouraged to join in discussions regarding pricing, eventually coming to an agreement about affordable ‘on the day’ or ‘multiple prepaid’ prices.   Yet again our Elements residents proved they can take on anything.  Zumba has now become a regular fortnightly Saturday morning activity at Elements.   Everyone agreed… Zumba is so much fun you forget that you are actually working out!
