What people have said about Olga and BoogieCamp
Testimonials - Zumba Gold Fitness
"BoogieCamp is awesome, fun, energetic, and a good social event.
"I have taken the Zumba Gold classes with Olga for the last two terms and have no hesitation in recommending them to everyone. If there is a more enjoyable way of exercising then I have yet to find it. The music is wonderful, the atmosphere incredibly supportive and the only sore muscles I've gone home with have been the ones in my face from laughing so much during the class. The classes are so much fun and an extremely effective workout for people who are perhaps not as limber as they used to be. My posture has improved and my back is certainly a lot looser after the class. My only regret is that there is not another class during the week."
Zumba Gold Fitness is a fun social gathering and the bonus is you do a bit of exercise as well. You can do things at your own pace. I thoroughly recommend it !
"I have now been a keen participant of Olga's Zumba Gold Class on a Monday at the Kenmore State School Community Education program for the past two terms. I have thoroughly enjoyed the program. I have always found Olga to be inspirational with her enthusiasm and continual energy. She makes the classes easy to follow and adjusts her teaching to suit the class speed and comprehension of the moves. With new moves to learn each new term, it continues to challenge while still providing some of the old ones so we don’t feel so uncoordinated. I would recommend 'Olga’s Zumba Gold' class to anyone wishing to get moving and improve their fitness."
A great way to safely push the body and have a laugh.
"At 52, I was really unfit and 35kg overweight. I wanted to take on some regular exercise that would fit in with my lifestyle and the weight loss program that my nutritionist had set for me. I saw the ad for Zumba Gold in the local community education pamphlet and thought it might be worth giving a try. I was a bit anxious about what to expect and whether I would be able to keep up with the pace. Olga's class was a really pleasant surprise; I love the dancing, the music and most of all, I love the fun and satisfying feeling I have at the end of each Zumba Gold class ... and ... I can keep up! As a result, I have started losing the weight and toning up, and am feeling much fitter and happier than I have in years!"
I have attended Olga's Zumba Gold classes for 4 years now and enjoy the classes because Olga's fun loving and easy going attitude puts everyone at ease. All fitness levels and ages can enjoy Zumba Gold as Olga encourages everyone to work at their own pace, you don't have to be perfect as she famously quotes "or your own version" as long as you keep moving.
Olga's Zumba Gold classes are a great way of exercising while having fun. No pressure - great music too. Just love it.
"I have finally found an exercise I like - Zumba Gold! Being over 50 and in the "not so fit" category, I have found this class to be a good overall workout while being able to laugh at the same time ! Learning the steps takes my mind off the fact I am exercising and the time flies past. I love the different types of music and was excited to see myself improve over the 8 weeks. Olga is an excellent teacher and very encouraging and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend this class to anyone of any age."
This class has really been of benefit to me as I have a heart condition and need to keep active. I find walking very tedious so this class has given me impetus to have a weekly workout with friends. I will continue attending the class while it continues to be both enjoyable and of benefit to my health. Olga's sense of humour makes the class more enjoyable.
"It was my pleasure to attend Olga's Zumba Gold Class at Strathpine. I needed an activity that would move and groove my inner self and at the same time be fun. Whilst booking I hoped that this would be what I was looking for. Olga's classes were perfect and gave me music that I could relate to and recall. Olga was considerate to class members who may have had an injury or weakness and guided us in protecting whilst dancing. The Zumba Class became a highlight for the week and I thank Olga for her talent."
"Zumba Gold has been a fun, safely active and yet gentle way to get my old and creaky bones and body moving again. There is a lovely variety of music and styles of dance. Olga's ever cheerful and encouraging approach means that I look forward to it every week. Highly recommended!"
Really enjoyed the Zumba Gold classes with Olga. Easy and low impact and made to feel welcome from the first class.
