"Kumusta - my name is Anthony"
I was born in the Philippines where music, song and dance forms a huge part of the Filipino culture.
I spent a number of years in the Royal New Zealand Navy where my involvement with fitness, movement and sports flourished. Time in the RNNZ lead me to a career in fitness, becoming a qualified personal trainer while living in Australia.
I was introduced to Zumba Fitness by my wife, Gerry, who's also a member of Team Azucar and my involvement began when Strong By Zumba was introduced in 2017.

What does Zumba mean to you?
I love Zumba because the community is so welcoming. The door is open to all shapes, colours, sizes, languages and backgrounds. This community feel, being part of a family, where fitness is part of the journey and not just a goal, is AWESOME!
Come and give it a try! Be it Zumba Fitness or Strong By Zumba, Team Azucar have your Zumba fix catered for right around the Mounga.
Music is the ultimate motivator. It pushes you through your workout, through one last rep - and then one more. Knowing how powerful the effect of music is on a workout we wondered - what would happen if we synced the moves in a high-intensity workout to a beat? So the music for Strong By Zumba is reverse-engineered to match every single move.
Moving in SYNC with music made students consistently push themselves past their limits and meet goals faster. Now, you can do it too!
