Annette is the best zumba instructor ever!! She always has a smile on her face and loves to teach the class. I have found out I really enjoy working out since starting her class almost a year ago! I get excited to go and learn her awesome routines and look forward to new and popular songs to dance to. I always have fun and am glad I have such a great teacher! Go Annette!! -Courtney

About 1 year ago I was looking to get back into exercising but wasn’t sure what I wanted to do.  A co-worker gave me a flyer for Annettes wegbsite.  After reviewing the website I decided to try zumba.  I have been hooked ever since.  I have tried other classes and none compare to Annette.
Even though her classes are challenging. Annette motivates you to exceed your limitations and/or expectations.
You can always count on Annette to have a big smile.
Annette inspires the people in her classes through her exhuberance, cheerfulness and positive attitude.
Since joining the class in March I have lost 10 lbs. and 2 sizes.  In addition to the increased physical fitness I have noticed a decrease in my stress level and an increase in my confidence. -Sue B.

When a friend asked me to take an introductory class with her for fun, I knew 2 things. She didn’t want to ‘go shake it’ alone, and she knew I was at a low point in my life and needed some shaking up! I really didn’t know what to expect, but from the first class with Annette Kokkola McLean I was hooked. Her smile and enthusiasm are absolutely infectious! No matter how stressful my day is as a Social Worker, within 5 minutes of class I am smiling, shaking it, and totally focused on the steps and the great workout. Looking forward to many more classes with Annette! -Eileen

Annette’s classes are second to none. Her energy and constant smile make the workouts fun and enjoyable. The music is great, the moves are addicting and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time — it doesn’t even feel like exercising! Annette and her classes are fantastic, and I wish I could Zumba with her every day. -Alexandra

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0I lost 30 pounds in two months!‎‎

I lost 30 pounds in two months!‎‎ I took my first class with Annette on August 15, 2010. In the two months I have been attending Annette’s class, I have lost 30 pounds. I am 59 years old and wasn’t sure that I would be able to keep up. But Annette is a wonderful teacher, and I have a blast at class. I’m not on a special diet- just eating sensible portions, walking the hills of New Fairfield 3 times a week, and attending Annette’s Zumba class twice a week. If you’re my age, don’t be afraid to try Annette’s class. She’ll make you feel at ease, and you’ll have fun getting fit. I was able to do it in just two months.

The best time exercising!‎‎

Too bad that there are only 5 stars to give this class! Annette is the most motivational person that I have ever known! She leads a high energy class and smiles through each and every set! I am not an exercise fanatic by any stretch of the imagination. Actually, I was dragged to the class, kicking and screaming, by a friend on March 10, and here I am, one month later, having not missed a class! Zumba is fun and fast! Annette makes the hour speed by and before I know it, we are winding down and stetching. The class is not only motivational, but it is inspirational as well. I have the finest instructor and the best time! Every part of my body, including by smile gets a work out! I cannot wait for Wednesdays and Sundays! Out of 5 stars, I give Annette and Zumba 20000!!!!!‎

I love this class! It’s a really fun workout that gets me moving and works up a sweat. After the first class I really felt it the next day in my calves and core. Annette is great motivator and fantastic Zumba instructor! I highly recommend it to anyone in the area looking to spice up their workout routine.‎

Great intensity and fun workout class!‎

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By annie – Mar 30, 2010
This class is so much fun and easy to follow. It made me realized that how bored it was doing other aerobic classes like Step. I am still doing kick-boxing which is a very high intensity workout. But if you want to have fun and make the hour goes by fast, this Zumba class is a perfect one.

What a fun way to burn calories!‎

Excellent Class!

By Hey – Jan 7, 2010

The classes are intense yet extremely fun. You do not need to be a professional dancer to enjoy it. It is the best work out class I have taken. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a real workout that is fast and fun. You don’t realize how much you are working while dancing in the class. I give it 5 Stars!‎

Great workout & lots of fun!‎
