Annette, the instructor is so enthusiastic and sweet.  She is very welcoming of everyone, regardless of age, fitness level or ability and always emits light and energy.  She really encourages everyone to do what they can.  No one is made to feel uncomfortable.  When you walk out of class you feel like you are glowing.  It’s like a party.  Everyone walks out feeling great!  What a great instructor!  I hope you will love her class as much as I do.

If you’ve wanted to try Zumba, I highly recommend Annette. Not only are the classes fun, but they’re a great workout and are very aerobic. She always has a smile on her face and she’s very motivating and welcoming. Students are of a variety of age and skill level, so you never feel out of place. The dances are easy to learn and I love that there are many that target abs, arms and legs. On top of that there’s a class almost every day and they are very affordable, especially if you plan on coming a lot!

 5 starAnnette is a great motivator! Her classes are exciting, fun and I can do as much or as little as I can handle. Her smile is infectious! She is having fun and that makes me have fun. She works hard, and I try to work hard. Any age and ability can be a part of her class. It’s fun, exciting, the music is great and I always feel good when we are finished.

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 W.

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

I LOST 30 POUNDS IN TWO MONTHS!‎‎

Nov 3, 2010
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!‎‎

By sugar_1965 – Apr 13, 2010
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!!!!!‎

AWESOME, FUN WORKOUT!‎‎

By Yvonne – Apr 1, 2010
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!‎

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.

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!‎
