Bored and unmotivated by 20 years of attending lackluster fitness classes, discovering Zumba was a life-changing revolution for ZCrew Fitness's founder Deann Coppess. The dance-fitness routine's high-energy tunes and Latin–inspired dance moves inspired a new vigor in her fitness regimen. She now strives to spark the same fire in her students as they salsa toward slimmer physiques while cultivating a lively atmosphere of elation and acceptance. In addition to leading Zumba's easy-to-follow, calorie-burning choreography, the instructor encourages students to carve out strong core muscles as they hula to Polynesian drumbeats during Hot Hula fitness classes. ZCrew also spices up birthday parties, beach gatherings, and family reunions teaching guests to shimmy off excess pounds or unflattering party hats during onsite Zumba classes.
At Zumba Woodinville, feet move, hips shake, and heads bob as Latin tunes and upbeat music fuel dance-inspired fitness classes. Zumba Woodinville’s certified instructors—who are also amateur or professional dancers—design each dance combination to burn calories, which can help clients lose weight and sculpt their bods. The moves also help tone muscles, improve flexibility, and boost coordination.

Personalized Health and Fitness isn't a typical big-box gym. At its core, it is a group of dedicated personal trainers whose mission is to help their clients achieve their ideal physique. Drawn from multidisciplinary backgrounds, each staff member brings a unique perspective to his or her work, whether it’s experience in adrenaline sports such as rock climbing or biking or higher-education degrees in fitness and physiology. From calisthenics and free weights to intense classes, they use any means necessary to rebuild each body in a more fit image. Trainers also host group classes ranging from cardio kickboxing to strength training, and supplement all of their personal and group workouts with extensive nutrition advice and counseling to maintain healthy weight loss. In addition to personal attention from their experienced staff, the gym also encourages solo workouts, with weight rooms and fitness facilities that stay open 24 hours a day to accommodate even the most hectic schedules.
At the core of oriental medicine sits balance, an internal equilibrium that helps the body stay healthy as its systems work harmoniously with one another. Balance Acupuncture seeks out and retains this balance with herbal medicine and acupuncture treatments that send a flow of natural energy throughout the body. Licensed acupuncturists Susan Groller, a former registered nurse, and Anthony Thompson, a former massage therapist, draw from their master's degrees in acupuncture and oriental medicine to reduce chronic pain, help treat injury, and enhance the feeling of well-being without drugs or monetary bribes.
