As you relax in front of the fire over the New Year spare a thought for the Stepping Out teachers who through December and over Christmas were to be found spending long days in the Stepping Out studio perfecting the Stepping Out Zumba Fitness New Year Shape Up Course.
Stepping Out founder Sharon Tinkler tells us “We put a huge amount of work into our course to make sure it’s just right. Customers probably have no idea of what goes on behind the scenes but let me assure you the dedication and professionalism of our teachers is amazing.”
And if you have been over doing it on the plum pudding don’t stress, this course gets results. Sharon goes on to tell us “One of our current teacher trainees started out this time last year as a customer on our New Year Shape Up Course. Over the year attending our Zumba classes in Mallow she has lost three and a half stone and is now training to become a Stepping Out teacher. When you see that kind of turnaround in peoples’ lives its really all you ever need to motivate you and keep you going.
“In Stepping Out we have always believed that fitness should be fun and all the classes reflect that ethos but we also know that people want results and we must deliver what people want. For over six years Stepping Out has been the largest dance fitness company on the market and we have done that by delivering the highest quality classes consistently.
“This January we are running our New Year Shape up course in 72 venues all over Ireland. The local venues are Portlaoise, Kilkenny, Newbridge, Leixlip, Clane, Naas, Carlow, Longford, Mullingar, Athlone & Maynooth.”
