A Chat with Katie Anderson Zumba
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
There are very few prenatal or postnatal aerobic classes in the Bay Area, most of them being yoga. This kind of specialty Zumba is practically unheard of and is very unique. It offers a funner way for Mommies to work out at a pace that they can handle.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
The songs and routines really keep clients awake, alive, and in the moment. I choose really catchy songs and they get stuck in your head. You can’t wait to get back to class and hear them! It’s also a great social event. You really bond with the other people in class and can’t wait to see them again
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I started this specialty class because I have many friends who are pregnant and/or have young babies and I noticed the lack of prenatal and postnatal classes. It brings me joy to see the moms and babies bond before, during and after the class.
What do you love most about your job?
The dancing! And that’s what Zumba is all about. I also love finding that next song I’m going to do in class and just letting the dance inspiration come out. I love that I’m getting an intense workout just by having fun. I only need to do Zumba a few times a week to stay in awesome shape.
