Jahaira Oritz-Olowe isn't just a licensed Zumba instructor, she's a Zumba success story. Six weeks after giving birth to her second daughter, she began helping students of all ages and fitness levels shimmy toward their fitness goals. And she hasn't just been teaching others to lose weight, she's been working out with them—she's lost 40 pounds since gaining her certification, which is great for her because she's not a London banker. During group and private sessions, she leads Zumba's easy-to-follow dance moves—inspired by salsa and merengue—set to high-energy Latin tunes. Jahaira also hosts master workshops to help her community get in shape and support such charitable causes as the Susan G. Komen foundation.
For Esther Piskunov, teaching Zumba doesn't feel like a job—it feels like a party. That's because she pumps international tunes during her classes, and choreographs spicy dance moves that students of all skill levels can follow. During each one-hour workout, students torch calories in a fun and supportive environment.

What do Mike Adams of the Denver Broncos and Sloane Serpe of the All-ACC Women's Lacrosse Team have in common? They've trained at 360 Fitness Performance Sports. That's thanks in part to the fitness center's 30,000 square-foot facility that seamlessly incorporates a turf field, a running track, basketball courts, and batting cages. Cardio and weight-training areas allow exercisers to work out on their own schedules or with the help of a trainer and a group fitness studio offers high-energy classes such as kickboxing and boot camp.
