Free Live Zumba Gold Classes Online

 Great For Your Brain and Everything Else

When the pandemic closed the gyms, a fitness instructor moved her classes online.

When her weekly Zumba Gold classes at the local adult center were cancelled due to Covid-19, Elizabeth Moakler had a puzzle to solve…

“How can I keep my gang moving?  Would online classes work?

Am I willing to commit to teaching free LIVE classes online?

What if nobody joins me?”

She wouldn’t have to wonder for long. At first, the online classes were small. Just a few ladies from her nearby Dell Webb community danced along at home in front of their computers. Today participants from 6 countries join her classes 4 times per week from her home studio over Zoom, including Rita, her 80-year-old mum in England. According to her students, she plays favorite songs from yesterday and today, and there is a real sense of community in the group. 50 to 90 people join in for each live class. We asked her why she teaches the classes at no charge…

“I just love putting the energy out there. We stay positive and share a real sense of caring. Today so many are still facing loneliness and isolation. We welcome and celebrate everybody.”

“If exercise came in a bottle, it would sell out immediately because it’s so darn good for you. Live longer, stay sharp, and feel great doing it.”
