ZUMBA FITNESS is dance-aerobics combining exciting latin rhythms with ‘easy to follow’ steps from cha-cha, mambo, merengue, salsa, cumbia, bachata, hip-hop, reggaeton, flamenco and even includes belly-dancing. It’s a great way to exercise while having the most fun ever without feeling like you’re working out.

Lets face it! We all know that we need to exercise, any kind of regular physical activity and we all know that we need oxygen to breathe to nourish every cell in our body.


..that having a regular workout program, eating right. preventive chiropractic and acupuncture treatments .. is the real definition of health insurance. Breathing, eating whole foods, bodywork such as massage, chiropractic and acupuncture keeps you strong so you can dance forever. Couples dancing is a great adunct to your ZUMBA FITNESS program. A healthy lifestyle promises you a more YOUTHFUL FACE AND BODY, feel-great attitude and increased stamina and energy. Wellness occurs when your body, mind and spirit are BALANCED. We know we ‘should’ take better care of ourselves, exercise daily, receive regular massages and facials, do deep breathing, yet we always seem to find good excuses why we ‘don’t’- too tired,too hot, too cold, no time, family commitments or you’re in pain.

    • Hi Joyce, I just moved to NY from FL in Dec and am available to teach anywhere I’m hired to teach. Please let me know if you have a group and a location, and I will teach. Let’s stay in touch and let one another know if something develops. Thanks for your interest. Shellie

  4. I belong to a senior center on Long Island, N>Y our seniors would be interested in learning Zumba. Do you have a DVD available for sale?

    • Hi Shirley, thank you for your interest in Zumba Gold. Unfortunately, at this time, there are no Gold DVDs available for sale. I will keep your name and let you know when they become available. Shellie

  5. Hello Shellie,
    I am doing some flyers for a friend of mine to start to encourage the “young at heart” in our area to do Zumba Gold. Would it be OK if we used your photos as they would show people that Zumba is for everyone.
    I would love it if you could let me know

    Thank you and keep being an inspiration to all
    South Australia.

    • Hi Debbie,
      Thank you so much for your comment. I’d love to see the flyer you created for the young at heart. I appreciate your acknowledgment of the work I do with seniors as a senior myself.
      Blessings, Shellie

  6. Where can I find some dvd’s which work for seniors with limited mobility who haven’t exercised in years? My mom is just getting interested in exercising again and she’s interested in zumba. Once her mobility is better, where can I find additional dvd’s for seniors? We live in the country in Oklahoma and there aren’t any zumba classes available except for those geared to younger people….and that’s only happened recently. I think since the town (tiny) population is mostly made up of seniors, having dvd’s available could be very helpful. Do you have instructional dvd’s available? If so, where can I find them to purchase? Thanks.

    • Hi Linda,
      Sorry it took me so long to contact you as I never received your email. Regarding Zumba Gold DVDs for seniors, there are none yet. I will keep your email in mind when I have some available for you. I do have single CDs for $10 plus shipping if you’d like that. Please let me know. Shellie

  7. Saw your video on the internet and would love to own a cd on it so that I could do it at home. I currently take zumba Gold at a senior center once a week.

    • Hi Shirley,
      I have 2 types of CDs available. Zumba Fitness Classics and Zumba Fitness Origiinal, each with great songs. I sell them for $15 +shipping. Please let me know if you’d like me to send you one or both. Thanks, Shellie

  8. Would love to be put on an elist for when you have the Zumba Gold for seniors video. When do expect that to happen? My town has NOTHING for seniors for exercise! Would like to be able to do on my own.

    • Hello Shirley and thanks for your interest in Zumba gold. I will put you on the mailing list for Zumba Gold DVD. I don’t know when the Company will be making these available. Blessings, Shellie

  9. Hi Grandma Shellie,
    I have knee problems and back problems and I still have an interest in Zumba…do you have DVD’s for sale for zumba gold….chair or low impact standing zumba. I loved watching your video on your site. Please Email if you have a dvd. Thanks, Linda

    • Hi Linda,
      Thank you for your interest in Zumba Gold. I regret that the Zumba Network has no Zumba Gold DVDs available right now. I will let you know if they become available in the future. Blessings, Shellie

  10. Hi Ms. Shellie:

    Found your website by searching for Zumba Gold on you tube!..I was excited to see that you are also a Massage Therapist!..

    I have just started taking Zumba Classes a few weeks ago and am hooked, then discovered by looking at training to become an instructor that there were Zumba Gold classes which may be just what I need and want to teach also..I am in my early 50’s and am seeing that Zumba Gold may be better for me to experience and possibly to teach..

    For now I’ll keep taking the classes, and continue to think about becoming a Zumba instructor to my life list..

    Your site and your enthusiasm has inspired me!

    • Hello Wanda, Thank you for taking the time to write a comment on my site. I encourage you to become a Zumba Gold Fitness Instructor and you can teach the class at your own pace. There are 2 benefits to being an instructor: you get to exercise for yourself and you get to inspire other seniors to get up off the couch and dance at your pace. You go girl!! and let me know when you become licensed. Blessings, Shellie

  11. Hi i am the activity director at a nursing home and my residents really want to do the zumba gold for our exercise class.. Do you have any dvds to purchase if so where can i find them. Thank you

  12. Hello i would love to be put on your list for a zumbu gold dvd.i have heart problems and i think this will really help.thanks so much Leighanna

    • Hello Leighanna, Thank you so much for your comments and interest in Zumba Gold. I believe it’s one of the best exercises for all people, since it gets you moving and you can do it at your own pace. I will put you on the list when the DVD comes out and let you know. Blessings, Shellie

  13. Enjoyed seeing your video on utube and need to exercise but want to do something fun but not too strenuous as I haven’t exercised much – I am 68 – please let me know when there is a Zumba Gold CD, VHS or DVD available, there are no classes in this area. Thanks.

  14. Hi Shellie!

    I was looking for a DVD for senors. My brother and his wife just retired. They love to dance and I was going to get the Zumba Gold dvd for them but like you mentioned, there is not a dvd for zumba dgold yet. Please contact me when you find out about one.


  15. please put me on your list for zumba gold when available ( which hopefully will be in the near future). Attended my first zumba gold class today but it was cancelled as there were not enough attending. (Now I am sore and have no where to go to work out the unused muscles haha)
    It is fun. I am 76 and would like to be able to continue with this sort of excercise.

    • Hi Earlene, Thank you for your interest in Zumba Gold. I’m sorry that your class was cancelled. One of the problems in most areas, is that there are not enough seniors interested in Gold and not enough teachers willing to teach seniors. I will put you on my list when the DVD comes out I’ll let you know. Blessings, Shellie

  16. I would love to know when you come out with a Zumba Gold. Can you recommend one that I can do now? I am a beginner.
    Thank you,

  17. hello shellie i would be interested in a dvd for zumba dance for seniors. I live in mountains and no classes. Please let me know when dvd is avaiable. Keep going your great.

  18. Would love to be contacted when the Zumba Gold becomes available. I am overweight and have a herniated disc but I am still energetic and would love to have a “fun” workout. please let me know if the dvd becomes available. Thank you! God Bless 🙂

  19. Hi Shellie,
    Thanks for all you do to help us seniors keep fit! Can you please add me to the list for a Zumba Gold DVD when one comes out? Thanks. Jan

  20. I would also like to be on your list for a Zumba Gold DVD…I am 64 and just started exercising ….. its never too late, right? I’ve lost 17 pounds so far and my goal is 25 more…Zumba would help immensely! So glad I found your website…I live on Long Island…..

    • Hi Char and thanks for taking the time to email me. I love hearing stories about the success people are having losing weight, feeling better and more. I will put you on my list and let you know when the DVD is available. Shellie

  21. Hi Shellie,

    This is Lorraine Trivone from Staten Island. I enjoyed speaking with you earlier today. You asked me to put a post on your webiste. We are starting a Zumba class for people with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers in Staten Island. Our class is scheduled to start on October 4, 2011 at 11:15am. Classes will be instructed by Elaine Gil of Bubbles Playhouse located at 2102 Clove Road, Staten Island, NY. I am going for a Zumba Jump Start for Gold on Sept. 10, 2011 and will then be certified in basic and gold. My cell phone number is (917) 297-3830 and you can find me on Facebook is you search for Lorraine Trivone. Take care and I hope we can keep in touch. By the way, good luck with Zumba in Virginia.


    • Hello Lorraine, thank you for taking the time to contact me about Zumba for Parkinsonians. I look forward to sharing our successes and brainstorming. Good luck and have fun at your Zumba Certification session. Shellie

  22. Hi—My friends and I would really lov eto get your dvds for zumba gold—-please notify me a.s.a.p.—on how to get them and when they will be available. thank you—–Serafina

  23. Shellie,

    Please give me a call. I have some exciting things to talk to you about. My cell phone number is (917) 297-3830. I am the one from Staten Island putting together Zumba for PD. Take care and hope all is great for you. I know we spoke on the phone, but I can’t find your number.


  24. Hi Shellie,
    Please put me on the DVD list also. I love Zumba but the local classes are just to energetic for me. Why don’t you tape some of your classes and sell copies to us oldsters who would just love to dance with you in our own homes. Looking at all the above posts you can see that there is quite a market for a Zumba for seniors DVD. Wishing you continued success.

    • hi judy, thank you so much for your interest in Zumba Gold and Gold DVDs. I am a member of the Zumba Instructor Network and unfortunatley, they do not allow Instructors to make their own DVDs or videos. I am working with them at this time, encouraging them to change these rules. I will let you all know when that occurs.

  25. Hi Shellie,

    I would like to be added to your list for a Zumba GoLd DVD. I just returned home from Florida where I took a Zumba Class in water. It was so much fun!

  26. Hello Shellie, I would like to be put on your contact list for Zumba Gold as I would love to start doing this with my young daughter that is in a wheelchair.

    Thank you,

    • Hi Lori, Thank you for your interest in my Chair Zumba Gold classes. I will let you know when my DVD is available. I am so inspired when I receive messages from people like you who are opening the possibility for your daughter to do Zumba in a chair. God Bless you all.

  27. I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome blog!

  28. Thanks a lot for sharing this with all people you really recognise what
    you are speaking approximately! Bookmarked. Kindly also talk over with my
    web site =). We can have a hyperlink exchange contract among us

  29. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just
    wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If
    so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  30. Hello there, You’ve done a great job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends.
    I am confident they’ll be benefited from this website.

  31. May I simply say what a relief to find someone who really understands what they are
    discussing online. You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make
    it important. More people should look at this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular since you surely possess the gift.

  32. Someone essentially help to make critically articles I’d state.
    This is the very first time I frequented your web page
    and up to now? I surprised with the research you made to make this particular post incredible.
    Excellent process!
