Caitlin Pugh first encountered Zumba back in 2007 and from that very first class she was absolutely hooked! “Zumba pulled me out of my workout slump (which was a couple of years of nothing or the occasional treadmill walk) and open my eyes to a new way of life.”
Caitlin has introduced our Zumba-lovers at Heart In Sol to ZUMBA® Toning! “No matter what level you’re at we’ll find something that works for you, the magic word is “modify”! I will help you take your cardio as high as you want or start you out on a beginner’s level. You don’t have to be skinny, young, or super active to enjoy Zumba. It’s all about feeling the music and letting your soul dance!”
