Here’s what Kirsten B. of Walnut Creek has to say about Janice’s classes:
I was always scared to try something new and different besides just going to the gym. I needed a change, and decided to look up Zumba! I’ve heard all the rage about it, and knew with this high impact I would be ready for my wedding next year! So my friend and I went to one class with Janice and knew right there that we loved it! Janice is a wonderful teacher! She cares about her students and has really made me feel good about myself. I miss Zumba when I can’t go and have even been doing it twice a week in addition to going to the gym!! I couldn’t imagine doing Zumba with any other teacher! Janice makes working out and sweating fun each week!
