Fun Fitness Class in Kihei Maui

"Travelin Pat" is back in Maui, and here is her take on our indoor aerobics class.

Zu Zu Zumba and More!!!!

Concentrating fiercely I stumble my way to the left. (Grapevine I think) Then, thankfully not crashing into the next person we quickly whip around to the right - step touch, step touch, step touch oh oh is there one more? Oops, sorry I mumble, then back at it hands on my hips, twirling around I stagger slightly but manage to find my way back to face the front. The instructor looks at me with arched eyebrows but smiles and sexily shakes her booty and informs us that it’s all about attitude.

The zumba / exercise class is as much about your mental fitness as it is about getting in shape. I read somewhere that in order to create new pathways in your brain you need to do stuff that you don’t normally do. So why not try this? It starts out with about a half an hour of aerobics then the Zumba dance fun starts. Geared to the 55 plus set, the classes are super fun, good for any level of fitness and budget happy 2 dollars. (Bargain city!)

Instructor Jini Hall has been teaching at the center for around 20 years and makes this hour a fun, happy, no stress workout. After class we all walk out with a great big smile!

The great thing is that if you stay at the Maui Garden House you can walk to aerobics, and get even more fit.


  1. I tried Zumba on Exercise TV and I totally understand what you mean about getting the steps the first time around :)

  2. looks like fun!

  3. Oooh, you’re such an inspiration. I love this blog!
    Find a fitness bench that can work for your needs.

  4. Is this class still being offered?

  5. Hi
    As far as I know it is still being offered. I go every winter and will know for sure when we get to Maui. You could try calling or emailing the Maui Senior's Centre or just turn up on Tuesday or Friday. Hope this helps
