TESTIMONIALS

Shout out from Zumba® Fitness CEO Alberto Perlman:

Oh wow, I don’t even know what to say. You were everything I hoped for and far more than what I had expected. Our event MC wasn’t just saying it; hands down, you have been the absolute best Zumba gal we’ve had on board.

Jerrica Hall, Race Director, Color Me Rad 5K National Events

So much good info! This is the first time I’ve considered my food choices based on health rather than on fat/calorie content. Life changing!!!

Judy Flagg

Amy Fournier is so “global” but yet the most down to earth human I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. This event was AMazing!

Amy-Lynne Cotter-Joseph, Zumba for Autism at Melmark NE event

I feel like I was in a Britney Spears video! That was amazing!

Jan Levis, Student

By far the best Zumbathon ever! Of course you (Amy) are awesome and the line up was perfect! 2 hrs of straight Zumba and didn’t want to stop once. Thank you ! Glad to be part of this great cause too!

Sandie Green Capone, Zumba for Autism at Melmark New England Event

Amy has been truly amazing and a catalyst for (others) to rediscover a part of themselves they either lost or never knew they had or even better a new part they developed.

Jay, Class Participant

Amy has amazing positive energy that is conveyed in all her classes. She has a wealth of knowledge she shares with her students. Her classes are unique and make me feel energized, happy and powerful!

Pat Milley, workshop participant and student

Amy and I have known each other since the late nineties when she was my personal trainer and lifestyle coach. As a corporate professional, I recognize extraordinary commitment that far exceeds 100%. As Amy continuously strives for perfection, she builds upon her knowledge base and adds to her arsenal of skills and expertise in the fitness, health, and wellness world both physically and mentally. Her engaging mannerisms, interest in individuals achieving their goals, and unbounded energy are unparalleled. Amy is a shining star wherever she graces her presence. I will be forever grateful for our relationship and wish her every success as she so well deserves.

D. Barrett

Each time I take Amy’s class, I have left feeling amazing, happy, hopeful, and just all around good! I have taken a lot of classes over the years and now have a new favorite in Amy. Her energy is endless, but more importantly, you can tell she really LOVES what she does, as well as she wants her students to equally LOVE what they came to do. She is very encouraging and engaging …and really, I just cannot say enough wonderful things except that I am so excited to and fortunate to be able to take this class. She is humorous, witty, and a real, genuine person and this is quite refreshing to find a class that has all of these things.

Kim G., Boston, MA

Fitcamp with Amy was all sorts of awesome- keeping my mind busy from keeping up with all the different moves and seriously I walked out of there calm as can be like I just had an hour massage looking forward to the next one!

Judy Tridenti

Amy brings years of experience and knowledge, energy, imagination, enthusiasm and professionalism you don’t find anywhere else. She truly cares about whether the experience is positive and whether we get successful results. She isn’t just marking her time, her dedication is apparent every at every class she leads.

Class Attendee

Zumba Bootcamp with Amy is the best! Amy is an amazing professional, and such a passionate and inspiring leader. Her workouts are challenging and there’s always something unexpected… (in a good way!) It was especially fun getting to see so many classmates get the results they were after over the course of the workshop — lots of lost pounds and inches. I’m SO signing up for the next session. Can’t wait!

Jennifer, Mother of 5 month-old

I’m new to the area and have been sampling Zumba classes to see what’s available in the neighborhood and yours is the top. Your classes at Kismet are consistently challenging, fun, and you’re always adding something new which keeps everyone exercising both mind & body – Thank You!!!

Eileen, Boston, MA

Amy is a fabulous instructor, she has enormous energy and gorgeous dance style! I had a lot of fun enjoying a great work out that really challenged me to get my energy level up.

Joanne C.

Your Zumba® class was so much fun!! I joined the YMCA in November with a goal to get in shape and lose some weight, and to have fun while doing it… Zumba is my favorite thing to do at they gym. I felt so good after your class, that I jogged home!! I was very inspired and felt great after your class.

Ann, Class Attendee

As the rhythm of Zumba Dance with Amy was echoing through the earth tone walls of the Andover Kismet Wellness center it enticed me to start moving my hips and feet a little faster each time. For many women, this was their first Zumba class, and the energy was ecstatic. As Amy started out by showing us basic Reggeaton, salsa, and meringue dance aerobic moves, I noticed that people were catching on to the beat in no time. Amy’s infectious energy and clear instructions encouraged you to sweat it out a little more and feel your abs and thigh muscles working to the Cha-Cha-Cha! With just an hour workout I felt my entire body had been “awakened” and I could feel that a change was happening. I plan to continue with Amy’s Zumba class at the Salem, NH Dance Connection but no matter where Amy is teaching I will always be sure to go. If you want to feel alive and invigorated and learn from the best, attend a Zumba Dance with Amy class and you will feel the rhythm of life move you to great health.

Stephanie Checchi

Amy’s health and vitality, excellence and dedication (.is) always an inspiration. Amy’s knowledge about health is astounding! Her genuine interest in me and my well being has been a gift. She is committed to helping me feel well and experience joy and vitality. I feel an awakening inside myself somehow. She has a caring, compassionate, graceful spirit. Her enthusiasm is contagious; she knows how to help each individual and will find out what one needs for optimal health and results.

Lynne Novello, Private Client

Personal trainers are great to help motivate you to diet and exercise, but Amy is different. Amy’s program is not a quick fix diet, nor is it about spending half your day in the gym. It’s all about making lifestyle changes and paying attention to how great you (can) feel. Amy proved to me that the mind and the body are connected.

Joanne D., Private Client, Exercise and Yoga Class Participant and Workshop Attendee

Amy has a great deal of knowledge that she shares with enthusiasm. She is passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and helping others to do the same. She has been a great coach. Prior to our meeting, whenever I began to think about going on a diet, I looked at it as another self-improvement task; more work. Thinking in this manner made making any change a struggle. By helping me to change my focus, Amy helped remove my resistance to change. This enabled me to make more nutritious food choices. She has also given me the tools to refine my diet. I now focus on how I feel after each meal and then adjust the ratio of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in my meals to increase my energy and sense of well-being. I have found the time to plan and prepare my meals ahead of time instead of grabbing whatever seems most convenient. The quality of food I now buy has also changed due to the information Amy has provided. She has definitely made a positive impact on my health.

Karen, Private Client

Amy is incredibly knowledgeable and is able to impart this to others through clear presentation and specific information. She’s great!

May Doherty, Exercise and Yoga Class Participant and Workshop Attendee

Outstanding!!!! Wow, great seminar! Great topic, and (Amy) is an amazing presenter! Quite an eye-opener, by far the best info I have been exposed to thusfar!

Eileen Doane, Workshop Attendee

I felt great and full of energy on the Metabolic Typing Diet! Amy was so inspiring and very informative!

Lauren Latagna, Workshop Attendee

Surpassed all my expectations! This was so inspirational…!

Fally F., Mother, Workshop Attendee

Amy’s class adds such a different dimension to working out and to the unleashing of hidden “feelings” of wonder and joy that can be found simply by the way you move!

Class Attendee

I am so happy to have found Amy as a dance guide! You are great at what you do, and you are genuine and funny! Your class is fabulously fun. I just love to feel like I can connect to my roots and let my soul fly. It’s great. Thank you for that!

Amy practices what she preaches and is a true inspiration to everyone who sees and hears her!

Event Attendee

It just gives me so much energy for the rest of the day! On the day’s I do your class I am still up after my teenagers!

Class Attendee

I am no dancer and don’t have a clue what I’m doing, but I just get out there, listen to the music, move around and let loose and not have to worry about it.

Class Attendee

Amy’s passion is addictive, she practices and lives all the things she teaches, and her personality is so warm and approachable.

Event Attendee

Amy just has a very special way of communicating that gets you to really “get” and “feel” what she means. She is so authentic and genuine – you can’t help but feel inspired for greatness around her!

Class Attendee

Amy’s like the Lucille Ball of Fitness!

Cynthia C., event participant

Zumba® with Amy has changed my life in many ways. I have learned not to give up on myself and I lost 60 pounds in less than a year! Amy is such an inspiration. 🙂

Jean Brietzke, Student

Many of you know Amy as a ZUMBA® instructor but she is so much more than that. She is a fitness expert, she is a holistic health expert, she is a teacher and she is an educator, she is a wealth of knowledge!! Amy can push me like no one else can and it has been a while since I have been pushed. It felt so amazing to push myself today in Fitcamp…and I did it and it made me feel so happy…thank you Amy!

Kate Squillacioti

WOWSERS!!!!!!……the absolute BEST Zumba experience I have ever had! 2 hours non stop with a LIVE band, almost 300 people, photographers, raffles, special effects lighting, AND some of the best instructors in Boston under 1 roof! So much talent on stage tonight, led by the incredible and fearless Amy Fournier. Super Sweet Cherry on top—– raising THOUSANDS $$$$$ for Autism! Amy is a class act, and everything she does is a labor of love with the most genuine heart I know. Thank YOU Amy for giving an incredible PARTY for all of us and for spearheading so much good for those in need. Xoxox

Amy Fournier is a Zumba® rock star! Sports Club/LA BOSTON. She also creates and/participates in numerous cause-related initiatives in the Boston area designed for fund raising and enriching people’s lives…physically and emotionally. She genuinely lends both her phenomenal Zumba® talent and engaging personality to those organizations facing challenges as she enjoys making a difference. Her enthusiasm and persona emotionally connects to those she teaches and those she touches. All in all – A true inspiration! Amy makes a genuine difference, delivers a phenomenal dance experience with every class.

Larry Gulko

Amy is an outstanding master at her craft: she is incredibly bright, with a treasure-trove of health and fitness information while possessing a warm, spontaneous personality that makes her classes so much fun. She gives off some kind of special “energy” that makes you feel AMAZING after class…everyone feels it! Plus she is continually seeking to gain more knowledge and skill to bring to our classes so the variety of music and the movements are endless and interesting.

Elena Torkler, Boston, MA

I am so happy to have found you (Amy) as a dance guide! You are great at what you do, and you are genuine and funny! Your class is fabulously fun. I just love to feel like I can connect to my roots and let my soul fly. It’s great. Thank you for that!

Peetz Brouillette, Class Attendee

Well, I turned 40 and really wanted to get in the best shape of my life and I kept seeing this ZUMBA class through the glass windows at my gym. I repeated to myself over and over, “Look how much FUN everyone’s having!” It was like a big party and everyone was moving and exercising in such a cool way. I thought to myself, “Why can’t I be part of that?” …now I’m hooked! AMY’S ZUMBA CLASS is one of my favorite events of my entire week. Amy’s class is always PACKED with some of the nicest people ever. There’s no teacher with SPIRIT, ENERGY and CHARISMA like Amy. I’ve tried 3 other Zumba classes and while they were good, they didn’t come one bit close to the dynamite experience which Amy’s class gives. AMY IS NUMERO UNO! It’s a great big fitness dance party and I’m grateful to be a part of it!

Rob S., Andover, MA

…she has so much energy- just WATCHING her gives me a workout!

Class Attendee

The Zumba Boot Camp Workshop has changed my life in so many ways! Not only has it been a great way to jump start the day but Amy is a great teacher, motivator and has been an inspiration to me. She’s thoughtful, kindhearted and driven by her passion to help others. Her love and support she provides to everyone is beyond words. Thank you for everything!

Gail D., New Hampshire

I absolutely loved the Zumba workshop at Kismet. I had fun and learned so, So much. It was the perfect mix of teaching and then trying. Understanding the moves makes it so much easier. The “practice” jam at the end was incredible. All so “do-able” and just as you said would happen, I now get more out of the regular classes. Great investment of my time and $. Worth every penny. Can’t wait for the next one. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

Sheri Walsh, Andover, Ma.

Your class today was hot, hot, hot!!!!! I found myself wanting to tell people around me that you belong to us. I was so proud of you. I know, silly, like a child all puffed up with pride saying “that’s MY mom!!!” But, nevertheless true. You were a star! The music mix was exceptional, the energy was HIGH, and the choreography was top shelf! I loved, loved, loved your class. I am so glad I took the time to go to that class! Wow!!!!!

Janet E. Class Participant

That was so AMAZING! You make it so fun to learn, even during regular class, you make sure we are all doing the steps correct so we don’t get injuries and we get the MOST from our workout. a true INSPIRATION!! So excited you are going to continue to offer these Dance Like a Rockstar classes!! Where do I sign up?!

Donna McKinnon

I think Amy is truly amazing!!! She is the best dancer, instructor, person that I have ever seen in my entire life..honestly! EVER! I feel so lucky and blessed to have her influence my life. I have done aerobics since I was a little tot (beside my mom during the 80’s when they let kids in with their moms!) so I am very passionate about it! But her class adds such a great dimension to the sport and to the unleashing of hidden “feelings” of wonder and joy that can be found simply by the way you move! Oh I hope that makes sense but I am trying to get across the exact amazingness of what I have found by going to (Amy’s) class! I believe her classes have enriched me just in the way I have needed.

Paige Johnson, Zumba Class Attendee

I have been attending Amy’s Zumba classes for 4 years. While I feel that Amy takes the time in every class to help individual students, her Dance Like a Rockstar class went above and beyond! She was able to teach a large group of motivated students the basics of Salsa, Merengue and Reggaeton. Although these steps seem basic, I found that I have been doing some of these moves incorrectly. A quick change in how I moved my hips or how hard I pressed my heel back and my workout intensity increased. I felt it the next day, in a good way!! When we incorporated the moves with the music, it made me feel more confident as a dancer. Dance Like a Rock Star not only helped me review the basic steps of each dance, but we also learned a little history about them. Amy is so passionate about Zumba and spreads this Zumba love to all her students. This is a perfect class for both beginners and Zumbaholics!

Jaime Meeker, N. Andover, MA
