Wanna dance? In a swimming pool?

If so, Talia Loucks and San Juan Island Fitness want to sign you up for the water version of the popular Zumba fitness exercise dance, scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays starting Jan. 29.

Talia Loucks, already teaching on-land Zumba classes at the club, was recently certified as an Aqua Zumba® instructor, and she will be conducting a demo class in the water on Thursday, Jan. 10, at 11 a.m. The demo is free for all; the regular classes are free to members and $10 for non-members.

According to Loucks, “this is a great way to get a very low impact, fun, cardio workout. It’s also the only facility offering this particular class.”  The Zumba® website describes the program as “an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party.”

“We’re excited to offer another class in addition to our existing 30 weekly classes” says Paul Hopkins, owner.

For more information or to sign up for the demo class, call San Juan Island Fitness at 378-8341 or visit them at 435 Argyle Ave.
