Joyce joined MAC in 2006 and started attending Zumba classes in 2009. Joyce became a Certified Zumba Instructor in 2014, and is also a Certified FXP Hula Hoop Instructor.
Before starting Zumba classes, Joyce felt like she had no strength and she suffered from allergies almost every day. Tired of taking medicine, she started cardio and treadmill workouts, but felt she needed more. When she tried a Zumba class she found it to be quite challenging, but felt she was not very coordinated at first. Today, Joyce has high energy, and no allergies! While obtaining her Master’s degree and working full time, she still tries to attend every Zumba class. Zumba has brought so much fun into her life, and she has made so many good friends in class. Zumba provides her opportunity to relax and release her stress from work.
