A Zumba based dance and excercise ministry.
Hi, I'm Lori Jo Cook and I love teaching Zumba® classes. I also love to inspire women to grow closer to Jesus Christ. My classes will incorporate music that lifts your spirit & glorifies God. I'm so grateful that God has healed my body from degenerative disc disease in my back. I have re-entered the world of fitness and found my groove in Zumba! It's so cool to have so much fun while burning those calories.
I have danced since I was a little girl. Still dancing and hope to be doing so in eternity as well. I welcome you to come check out one of my classes. My hope is that you will find life in dancing. I will forewarn you that I do not cheat on the fitness side. We dance, but we also do squats and work the abbs & gluts. Look forward to sweating with you soon! To give you a heads up, I am conservative regarding the music that I use in class. For those of you ladies that are concerned about moving your hips around too much, it is very beneficial in combatting osteoporosis. We are moving our bodies for fitness, health & fun. This too is a reason that my classes are women only in all the churches.
It is really crazy to see how Zumba has taken the world by storm. Part of the reason that it is so popular, is the provocative moves & explicit music. You will not find a sensual or seductive atmosphere in my classes. As a women's pastor, it is my great priveledge to help women come to know Jesus & His love for them. With that in mind, it is important that the music we are listening to is beneficial to our spiritual walk as well. I believe that even our Zumba Fitness can be Choreographed in Christ™.
