Instructor Training

Hello everyone!

Ever think about taking your Zumba passion and teaching your own class?  Think about getting certified as a Zumba Instructor!  It is a one-day class that is loads of fun, even for those of you who just want to brush up on your merengue, cumbia, reggaeton and salsa moves!

Currently, Zumba Fitness® offers the following Instructor Training Workshops:

Zumba® Basic Steps Level 1 – This workshop teaches instructors the foundation and formula to teach basic Zumba® classes.

Zumba® Basic Steps Level 2 – This workshop teaches instructors four more rhythms to incorporate into their basic Zumba® classes. It also gives instructors the opportunity to network, share choreography and enhance their professional status and skills.

Zumba Gold® – This workshop is designed for instructors who wish to teach the active older adult population or the true beginner (deconditioned participant). It addresses the anatomical, physiological and psychological needs specific to these populations.

Zumba Toning™ – This workshop teaches instructors how to blend body-sculpting techniques and specific Zumba moves into one calorie-burning, strength-training class. Instructors use weighted, maraca-like Zumba Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and build strength.

Aqua Zumba™ – This workshop is the “pool party” workout for all ages. Instructors learn how to teach safe, effective and challenging water-based workouts that integrate the Zumba formula and philosophy into traditional aqua fitness disciplines.

Zumbatomic® – This course teaches instructors how to fuse the Zumba program’s exciting formula with the psychology and physiology relevant to teaching kids (ages 4-12). Instructors learn how to modify Zumba moves to get optimal results, and receive tips on discipline and class management. With the Zumbatomic program, kids have a blast, get focused and get fit.
