North/East Yorkshire

Hello, I'm Debs and I teach Zumba®, Zumba Gold® and FitSteps® in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. I started teaching in 2010 after experiencing firsthand, the incredible benefits of the Zumba® programme. Dancing away at home, to the Zumba DVDs, helped me enormously on my road to recovery, after treatment for breast cancer. I was struggling with anxiety and the physical toll of the treatment and Zumba®, without a doubt, helped me to get my mojo back, not just with my fitness but my emotional/mental health too. So much so, that I set up my own classes in the hope that I might be able to help others feel the same. It's the best decision I ever made. I have so many stories of how the classes have helped with depression, anxiety, grief, loneliness, wellbeing, fitness, recovery, confidence, feeling cared about, physical ailments and finding friends. Community Classes are an incredible environment to bring people together in a non-judgemental, caring and supportive way. Seeing everyone smiling and laughing and forming friendships is the best thing ever, and I feel truly blessed to be a part of all that. I'm just over the moon to now be a Community Fitness Ambassador, and I can't wait to see this fabulous Community Fitness Network grow from strength to strength. #wearecommunity
