"Try it, you might like it!"

Jo Gibson

Hi, I'm Jo Gibson, I live near Brighton in the UK, a small city with a big heart.


I started doing Zumba 11 years ago because I found the gym boring and was looking for a fun way to get fit. 2 lessons in and I was hooked!

Zumba is a Latin American music based dance/fitness programme that incorporates aerobic exercises with the dance styles of Salsa, Cumbia, Merengue, and Reggaeton, as well as international choreographies from all around the world.

I was 43 when I did my first class, so I especially want to encourage those of you over 40 to give it a go. People from the generations who did not grow up with the fitness industry as prolific as it is today, and may feel excluded from joining in.
I offer 2 types of class, standard Zumba and Zumba Gold.

As well as increasing fitness and helping with weight loss, Zumba gives you 'head space'. An hour of 'ME TIME'!

If you're looking for a class that will lift your spirits, keep you fit and tone your body then this is for you!


If Bollywood is your thing, then check out my BollyX Classes - I'm the first licensed instructor in Sussex bringing the BollyX fitness programme to you live on Zoom.

Fantastic Indian Pop, Bhangra and Indian folk music with professionally choreographed dance fitness routines to give you a full body workout!




The benefits of dance fitness

A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.








Jo has amazing energy and a great sense of fun. She is so dedicated to both teaching and ensuring her class enjoys every minute of the class. A great experience !

Thank you Jo! Loved the Zumba Gold Zoom class! I'm surprised by how much I
enjoyed doing Zumba through Zoom in my living room. The steps were easy to
follow, the music was great and I had fun as well as a workout. 
I found myself with a big smile throughout and all day afterwards.

Just started doing Jo's classes and love them. They are fun ,lively and a great workout She is clear in her delivery and really pleased I found them.
