We have been trying Zumba Gold at St Mary’s! Local instructor Zumba Zoe has built up a great following across Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas, and recently popped in to give our residents a taster session.
Zumba Gold is based on the Latin-dance inspired Zumba workout, but is designed to be more accessible to beginners and those that require modifications to their exercise routine. This makes it the perfect, low impact physical activity to help improve our residents’ mobility. The music and dance elements also have a great impact on mental well-being.
St Mary’s resident Dolly said, “I had such fun! It was very energetic and I hope the lady will come again.”
Jean, also a resident at the care home added, “I loved the atmosphere it created. Everyone was happy and lively, I didn’t see anyone being grumpy or not joining in.”
It looks like Zumba Gold will become a regular feature at St. Mary’s from now on!
