Hi my name is Chris, I am 48 and married to Barbara who is one of the instructors.My involvement with Zumba started at the beginning on a very snowy day in February, getting all the equipment to Holmfirth Sport Centre. "Roof bars have a lot to answer for". We all got stuck in and the first class went ahead. So I became a Zumba roadie in the background helping out when needed.
I am a self employed painter/decorator. My hobbies are climbing which I have done for 30 years. I am a member of the Holme valley mountain rescue team with 28 year's service. I am also a member of Huddersfield Cobras, a free style Karate club where I have achieved my second dan black belt. I like to run when time allows. I have watched the Zumba phenomenon grow and it's really great to see so many keen and vibrant people taking part. So hope to see you at a Zumba venue soon.
I think the Zumba team members are fantastic in their commitment and enthusiasm. Well done all.
