The old Curves Gym at Donald Place has been replaced by zumba classes.

JB Anderson is a Christchurch-based Zumba instructor. Her love for dance lead on to Zumba, which is her ideal exercise. It’s about getting out, letting loose and having fun…toning up and losing weight are just side effects. Not only can anyone Zumba (We do mean anyone!) but everyone does so differently.
