Hello ladies. This is not a usual business website post/blog. I just wanted to make sure I am reaching out to everyone just in case I do not have your mobile or email address.
I hope you are all well, staying in and keeping safe as per the government guidelines. I just wanted to say I miss teaching our live classes so much and I am lost for words about what is going on around us.
I am currently in the process of identifying those Fitness Vibe class members who are in the over 70 age range, live alone with no outside space. My priority would certainly be with this group to deliver some sort of online uplifting exercise activity with the platforms available. I am very aware that many in this age group do not use social media and do not all have laptops etc. Once I have tried to sort something out to keep social interaction with this group, I would then hope to do something temporary for other groups. This is proving difficult with all the licencing laws in place and the equipment I currently own.
In the meantime please try and keep active. If you find yourself sedentary, maybe move around every hour, walk up and down the stairs where possible, follow some of the you tube classes/TV classes available. When doing so please remember to have suitable footwear on, have a hazard free space to exercise, have some water available and make sure you feel fit to exercise. I hope your spirits stay lifted as much as possible in this challenging dreadful time.
Thinking of you all, I will be in touch

It was great that Calendar ITV News wanted to film our Zumba Gold classes with their feature “age is just a number”. The little clip was live on Calendar on Tuesday 4th February. I have now got the official video from Calendar and have posted it on to our You Tube Channel. It’s easy to view it direct from out website, simply scroll down to the bottom of the home page on the website, and select the You Tube icon. Alternatively you can go into my you tube channel “Katrina Catton” and find the video there.
Well done everyone!
It was great to attend the UK Zumba Academy 2020 at Manchester on Friday 7th February. The first day was a master class with all the UK Zumba Educational presenters. Saturdays sessions kicked off with a master class from the boss himself Beto Perez who was brilliant! Next to follow was a Flamenco workshop with the amazing Jessica Espocito called “Flamenco Flow”. The session was full on with lots of tips and advice on how to incorporate the flamenco style into our Zumba classes. Next up was Zumba Strong, the latest speciality from Zumba which was fab to watch from the side line! I think my favourite session was the afternoon workshop with Mansoor Galant called “African Beats”. Hard work with lots of isolation moves and a real challenge! The final session was Latin Urban and I have managed to pick up quite a few choreography ideas to use in our classes so all good x
We all had a big surprise when the X Factor finalist Fluer East took to the stage with Beto! May be we should bring back our “Sax” track in Fitsteps? The day ended with a gracious speech from Beto and I finally managed to get a picture with him!
All in all I had a fabulous weekend with great company and came back fully inspired!!
