“In the summer of 2012, I began participating in Hiro Martin’s Zumba classes at the Transylvania County Recreation Center in Brevard. Originally I just wanted to dance but very quickly realized the cardio benefits of this program. Beginning with a one hour class once a week and then adding a second class almost immediately, I began to have more energy and noticed that my clothes fit better. This is a fun, energetic class with the added advantage of meeting other like-minded individuals interested in feeling and looking better. My annual doctor’s examination reflected positive results in my blood work, showing lower C- Reactive Protein levels with good Dexascan readings. My doctor wanted to know what I had been doing!”    Beth – Zumba/R.I.P.P.E.D.


“I have been active in Zumba classes with Hiro for almost two years. In that time, I have been able to lower my cholesterol to the point I am only taking my medication every other day instead of every day. I have more energy, feel terrific, and am having fun doing this.”    Lois – Zumba


“C.O.R.E. training, Zumba, weights, yoga, pilates, Nia, stability ball, BOSU, R.I.P.P.E.D…. Hiro has mastered them all. She always keeps the session fresh with new challenges. Bonnie and I have been working with Hiro for more than 6 years.”    Chaffe – Personal Training


“The Zumba & strength training classes with her have been extremely beneficial. Zumba one day a week for cardio & strength training once a week for getting my body stronger. It has been fun with Hiro and my stress relief has been an added plus.”    Terri – Personal Training


“I am 75 years old. I had my annual physical this week. According to the doctor, my blood work is that of a 16 year old. And, I could live to be 100 years old. I told him I did Zumba twice a week. He said, “keep it up – it is helping you keep as healthy as you are.”    Nancy – Zumba


“I began training with Hiro just before my 60th birthday. After multiple surgeries and chemotherapy, I believed that my fitness was gone forever. Then I joined Hiro’s training class. Her vast knowledge, individual help and encouragement have allowed me to accomplish what i thought was not possible.”    Nan – Small Group Personal Training
