Group of the week - Zumba with Carol

A decision to get fitter five years ago, ended up changing Carol Callander’s whole life.

After just one Zumba session Carol, from Larbert, was hooked on the Latin inspired exercise class and less than a year after her first lesson, became a teacher.

Now, Carol has been an instructor for four years and runs classes in Larbert and Grangemouth. She teaches regular Zumba as well as Zumba Gold for older or less mobile people and Zumbini - movement classes for children under-four.

Carol said: “What I love most about Zumba is that it is for absolutely everyone – no matter what size, shape or ability.

“I can alter the routines if you have an injury or are new to fitness and the participants are always really welcoming to new people.

“Zumba is really fun and the music is energetic and uplifting – you can’t help but want to move to the beat!”

Carol holds classes on various days and times, for more information visit her Facebook page.
